Question about 2003 Saab 9-3

2 Answers

I have a 2003 SAAB 9-3 convertible. I have a problem with the front passenger side door. The lock responds to the fob but won't unlock and I can't pull it up manually. I am not getting any kind of error message either. Also, the car won't always start right away even though everything else is responding with the key in the ignition. A tech hooked up the car to a scope and get the code 605. He was not able to find what the code means. Please help. Thank you.

The door problem either the lock actuators is bad even though you can hear it doesn't mean the leaver is moving. I have seen where the lock actuators made noise but the lever didn't move or a rod became disconnect.
I looked up your code it says control module fault possible causes faulty unit, wiring harness not connecting properly, ground open or shorted

The linkage inside the door may have come off, so you will hear a lock/unlock sound but nothing happens, if this is the case the door panel needs to come off to repair it. you need another tech, if there is a code number there is a corresponding symptom listed.

Most likely you have a bad TWICE unit. it is located under the driver's seat, at a low point in the floor and often gets wet.

Had same problem, in the boot right hand side, behind the removable panel there is :
1 - a hydraulic reservoir which must be at correct level.
2 - a black box (stc) this controls the roof system,
switch ignition off then pull the 2 connectors off for 30sec then reconnect.
This worked and hope this resolves your problem

We know the window regulator is good, including the motor and track. The fact that you hear a noise when depressing the driver side switch tells me that there is an open wire (ground side). It could be the the switch on drivers door or the wiring in that circuit. I would ride down an extremely rough stretch of road with my finger holding down the passenger window switch on the drivers side. If it inches down then your open will be a high open where the wire will only be barely seperated. If not the seperation will be a true open. It is usually fairly easy to swap a window switch, just to be sure the open is not in the switch. Hope this helps........Tennis123

Check for a bad switch in the door.
Water leaking from the rag top-door seal joint often drains into the switch, causing a short or bad contact eventually.

Saab's have very specific steps that you must follow when you change the batteries in your key fob. You might try these steps to re-sync your key fob to your security system....

If the battery has been changed outside the
car and the car is locked, proceed as follows:
1 Unlock the front left door with the traditional
key. If the car has a car alarm, this
will be tripped.
2 Open the door and insert the remote
control into the ignition switch. If the car
has a car alarm, this will be silenced.
The remote control and receiver unit are
now synchronized.
