2008 saab 9-3, probable causes for check engine light to go on?

Sometimes when you dont close your Gas cap tight, the light come on But could be something else detected by the computer. Take it to an auto part and they will scan it for you for free and they will tell you whats the code. Good luck

Check engine light came on today on my 2002 Saab 9-5 2.3 Turbo. I have no clue why? Also, when I started it up this morning it said on the display [REAR LIGHT FAILURE]. Any solutions?

The simple one, you have a rear light blown. As for the check the engine light "you would need to get the code checked, that any Saab dealer can get by plugging a device into your car, and from there the problem will be narrowed down" sorry I cant be more specific but that light can come on for a multitude of reasons. :-(

You will need to have your car's ECM (Computer) read by a OBD II scanner to determine what Trouble Code your ECM is giving so a mechanic can properly diagnose the problem. You can go to your local AutoZone store and they can pull the codes out of your ECM for no charge.

My 2002 saab 9-5 shakes and sputters for about

Water on any electrical part of the engine can cause problems. Even high humidity. The only parts you can easily check and dry out is the plug wires where they connect to the coils and any connections you can find where components are plugged into wiring a harness.

not sure, run a code scanner on it and post the trouble code that would help to diagnose. Your local auto parts store can probably scan it for you.

2002 saab 9-5 with 95,500 miles has check engine ligt on. oil was changed 3 weeks ago. I drove the car Saturday morning w/o any problems for 20 minutes. 2 hours later when I was leaving again the light...

The message light does not check all internal systems.

Have someone at a local parts store do a free code scan for you, this will tell you what code is making the light come on, and what that code indicates is wrong.
