Question about 1995 Saab 900

1 Answer

Code-Screen I had my car fixed two years ago and the Mechanic told me that he went undr the dashboard and pulled all the codes from the ECM to make a repair. I had to replace my battery about 3mos ago and when I tried to put the radio code in on the screen but no code request came up on the screen ( just a flat line like this came up ----- ----- ----- ----- ).I remembered the mechanic remove the code connection(s) from the ECM.I can't locate the mechanic any longer to have him reconnect whatever he did . Can anyone tell me where I can go under the dashboard to reconnect the codes request back to the ECM ? I really only need to reconnect the Radio request code at this time! Chaz Comment by Chazzy777, posted on Jul 26, 2008 Also,my Car is a 1996 Saab 900SE V6...I have the code for it. Thats not the problem. The problem is I need to reconnect the code request lead back into the ECM so I can put the code in for my radio.The mechanic pulled or disconnected all the code leads(?) from the ECM.

No BUS can be caused by a bad module, wiring, connections etc. causing an intermittent issue as you have. One bad sensor can drag down the 5 volt reference and cause no starts and BUS codes . Has it been scanned for a BUS code ?

Gas vapor leak

The EVAP emissions system recovers vapor from the fuel tank, stores them in the charcoal canister, and burns them off whe. The engine is running. It would be impossible to tell ou what part needs to be replaced because it cold be anything from the filler kneck, to the purge valve, or the charcoal canister. The code that was in the compute gave the clue as to what the problem was. Your mechanic than found the diagnostic information and proceeded to trouble shoot the issue until the cause of the code was found. IMO, any mechanic that tells you not to worry about something on your car is not worth patronizing. They should have educated you on what the system does, what's affected by the system not working correctly, the consequences of not repairing the problem, and potential future issues if the problem where not corrected. You can then decide what is important and what is not important!

Check engine ligth comes on and stays on. The car is running a little rough now too. Both problems started this morning.We had our mechanic do a tune-up on the car about a year ago.

When a 'check engine light' (MIL=Malfunction Indicator Lamp) is turned on, there is a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) set/stored in the ECM/PCM (Engine Control Module/Powertrain Control Module). This code identifies which engine management system component/function experienced a malfunction. Once you pull/read this code, you may begin diagnosis.

Hi Team, Good Afternoon. I purchased a 2005 Toyota Corolla 1 month ago (Used Car). As soon as I got the car I got the check Engine light. I took the car to Toyota of Irving and they told me that it was...

Did you buy this from a dealer? if so, you should have taken it back ASAP I dont know why you didnt have the Toyota Dealer fix the car, now your in the middle of a mess, getting 2 shops involved, and the car still has a problem. When you bought the car, whoever you bought it from, knew there was a problem, cleared the code and it took a while for the check engine light to come back on. So now you will just have to pay someont to fix the car. The trans shop told you it needed a converter and solenoid, the problem is still there, so make it their problem. I think you need someone who knows toyota . theres no recall that I know of. Recalls are free, anyhow. . ecm is warranteed 8 years or 80k miles. Have the dealer check it out. Have them Check Bulletin TC008-04 and T-SB-0378-08

Code -ECM

I see - I guess I didn't quite follow what you said. I have a friend at work who is a "Saab guy" and I'll ask him for you how to do this. Soon as we talk, I'll post up the information if he can give it to me.

What you probably have to do is enter a security code to unlock the radio - it's an anti-theft idea done by Saab, that Audi and BMW and others also do, to try and make it harder to re-sell stolen radios.

Go to the dealer with photo ID, the title to the car, and your registration - that way you prove who you are and that you own the car, and they can look up the code for you. They may charge you up to an hour's labor for this. Make sure they give you the code though, and don't just have a technician put it in. If you don't get the code from them, you'll have to pay them the next time too.

Hyundai Accent 2001 (1,6 L) , does not start. HELP!!!

Problem solved. I had no choice, but to have the car towed to the
Hyundai dealer and at first they thought it was the ECM...
... (Because it had no sparks)
Which is very expensive, $800.00 in Canada...
But finally it was only the power relay of the ECM... $30.00... ouf!
Sometimes it can only be the ground wire, that goes into the car.

I'm posting this, so that if someone else has the same problem
maybe this will help you.

Have a nice day!
