Question about 2004 Saab 9-3

1 Answer

The air conditioning unit won't work. The lights behind the panel light up, and when I turn the air all the way to cold, you can hear a click like it wants to go on, but can't. Do you know how to fix this? (the air distributor won't work, nor will the fan speed thing. (the switch that makes your feet/head/windshield warm and the thing that increases or decreases a/c or heat speed))

Check the fuse block. Sounds like the compressor fuse is blown. Maybe a 32Amp. It's a biggie. Maybe looks like a black relay in the engine compartment on the left side along with an array of large fuses. You can check the fuse box inside the car as well, but those are controlling smaller items like lights. The big boys are in the engine compartment. Also check for loose wires around the AC compressor and make sure the belt is not broken or missing.

Signal light won't click off


The plastic canceling cam in the steering wheel, well, behind the wheel-you have to pull the steering wheel off to access it. It is probably broken. New ones are available at a parts store. Check a repair manual for caution notes and how to work in this area without activating the air bag. You have to take off the negative battery cable, and wait about 30 minutes before starting repairs around the air bag.

Won't start


Switch on head lights or cabin light. If they doesn't come on or is weak, the battery is flat. Ensure that you switch off the lights.
With ignition switched on, assuming the lights on the instrument panel cames on and your immobiliser is deactivated, turn ignition to start. You should hear the solenoid at the starter making a click sound. If not, the battery is flat or the starter solenoid is faulty. If it does make a click sound, the battery could be too low to turn the starter or the starter is faulty. Assuming the immobiliser is working correctly, and the starter tries to turn the engine but it doesn't want to turn, the gasket could be blown and the cylinder filled with water, or the engine could be seized.
Hope it is not the last case. MarioCpt

My 2004 f150 wont start. i drove it to the store and everything worked fine. when i came out of the store, the truck won't start. when i turn the key nothing happens. i can hear a clicking noise coming...


I would check your battery. I would also look for loose grounds. The clicking you hear is your fuel pump turning on. I would check your battery voltage and, have the battery load tested.

1999 Buick Le Sabre Custom, My heat, and defrost work fine, but my car won't cool when I turn on the AC. My air conditioning is charged and the blowers work fine but why wont they blow cold air?


The first I would do is check if the a/c compressor is working. Start vehicle then turn a/c on in vehicle full power and then off/on a couple of times if you hear a click when turned on then compressor is working properly.If this is the case then you need freon.If not turning on,first check fuses,for location refer to owners manual,if not fuse then compressor needs to be checked which then you will need service manual purchase at local autoparts store.

I have a 03 honda civicand the air conditioner wont work? it doesnt need recharged and the light comes on when i push the button but i get no cold air? any ideas?


I have the same problem right now, and from what I can figure, it looks like an intermittent thermal protector switch on top of the AC compressor. My 2003 Civic air conditioning works fine for 20 minutes or so and then stops working. If this switch is faulty, the compressor clutch won't engage and you won`t get cold air. I will get it replaced soon, but it seems like the access is not easy.
