Question about 1995 Saab 900

1 Answer

Code wire(s) I hope someone can solve a code wire connection problem Iam having. I had a transmission put in my car sometime ago and the mechnic told me that he had to disconnect the code wires under the dashbroad in order for the transmissiom to shift beyond 1st gear(Automatic). At the time I thought why would he need to do that? Anyway, the transmission shifts fine but the problem is after I had reinstalled a new battery I could not put the code in to get my radio to come back on again because where you key in the number for the radio code ( the 4 lines where you put the code)wouldn't come up. Then I remembered that the mechnic who replaced the transmission told me that he disconnected the wires under the dashboard.I went back to mechinc but now he is telling me to take it to another shop to have it reconnected for around $60.00. After explaining to at least 5 other repair shops what this mechnic had done. All of them kept telling me that what he did can't be done? rather then go on with this story, I hope someone here can tell me how I can go under the dashboard and at least reconnect the radio code wire ? Chaz

I have a saab 900 se, my car stereo has a few connections on the back you just plug them in. once you have power enter the code 2455 or 2544. oh get a couple of scewers to get the radio out unless you have the tool. these codes work on my car. or when you pull out the radio sometimes the code is on top of the radio. just check connections make sure things look right. hope this helps

When iam driving my 1998 dakota down the road it says iam going 0 mph code 500 is on

Your vehicle has an electronic speedometer. Either the sensor is bad in the transmission, or you have a wiring problem.

You can try replacing the sensor, but I would test all the circuits first.... if you can find a wiring diagram.

How I can Fix P0741 Code - Toyota Corolla 2005

The code means your lockup clutch is not working. You're not going into top gear and the transmission is slipping. This burns the oil, and burns extra gas.

Change the solenoid if it's truly broken, and see if the transmission goes into lockup and clears the error code. If so you've saved a lot. But you need to change the oil, too.

Check engine & exclamation point lights are

I believe the (!) Warning Light is your starter ignition light. But the check Engine Light coming on after just having a new motor put in. My suggestion is to take it back to the person who just put the motor in for you. Have them check all the wirings and make sure there are no cross connections. I had my engine rebuilt 5 yrs ago. And they told me that my transmission had a morning condition. It didn't like to work first thing in the morning especially during the Winter season. Also check all of your fuses.

P0705....Transmission Range Sensor Circuit Malfunction (PRNDL Input) . probably means that that a plug may have come off or a wire got cut thus the circuit to the Park , Reverse, nuetral , Drive or Low had a "malfuntion". Ot it couldbe the sensor itself on the tranny.

Transmission Service Required 2001 Volvo S60 T5


These cars had a few issues with the transmissions. Sometimes upgrading the software and flushing the transmission will help, sometimes a new valve body will fix the problem, but often the transmission will need replacement due to internal failure.

The first step is to have a shop read out all the fault codes, read all the service bulletins and tech notes from Volvo regarding the transmission problems and then make a decision based on all of that information.

Good Luck,

1999 Acura TL Problem

The problem is the ignition wiring harness, as described in the May 2002 Recall 02V120000. I tried to get Acura to replace it a second time (first time they replaced it was at 75K miles) with no success. Car started stalling/restarting again at 200K miles. I bought the part mentioned in the recall (~$70) and installed it myself - have not had a reoccurrence since.
