Question about Saab 9
Wiper intermittent problems and cruise control problems
Need a little bit more info,but Im 95% sure that the whole wiper cotrol module needs to be replace because the circuit is short to B+. (dealer Part)

Well sure enough all I had to do was replace the circuit board...wish I had done this a couple months ago...it was so easy to do and will now be much easier to drive with being able to see clearly again....

This sounds like the wiper motor. The brushes/commutators in the motor are probably fouling up. At high speed more current is sent to the motor so it works. If you replace the wiper motor this should solved the problem.
For the wiper pump check the fuse.
Then check to see if the fluid tube is clear and not plugged.
Finally check/clean electrical contacts on pump motor and if you can heard the wiper pump motor running when activated. If not replace pump motor. (they do wear out)
These parts can be gotten at auto recyclers also.

SOURCE: Window wiper problem
Hello I have a saab 9.3 SS 04 and had the same problem.
- intermittent wipe doesn't work, at all
- windscreen washers don't work, at all
- "normal" continuous, and fast wipe work, but the wipers
freeze in the middle of the windscreen if you let go of the
control stalk, rather than sweeping back to the resting position
- same "freeze" happens with the manual wipe (push down on the control stalk)
The weird thing is that, this morning, for about 10 minutes, it seemed to fix itself,
partially - the washers started working etc - but the intermittent wipe still didn't work. However not long after that it went back to the symptoms described above.
also if I unplugged my car battery for a minute the washers worked for several seconds but again same problem occurs.
Solution is to replace your wiper motor. its that "simple"
worked for me. The wiper motor has a lot of electronic stuff and seems to control the washer engine.

This is a problem you will to take to a shop, If you are mechanically inclined I can help you, but if not I would not mess with it, it could be the button or it could be the controller and could even just be a fuse, check the fuse and if you don't find the fuse blown then let me know if you have a volt meter and what to test this yourself. You are going to be working around the air bag too and if you probe the wrong wire while testing you could break your arm or leg by deploying the air bag by accident. Or your neck.

NOT EXACTLY WHAT YOU ASKED BUT VALUABLE INFO I THINK YOU'LL AGREE?
There are several common cruise control failures on Saabs. The pedal switch failures are the most common problem. What generally occurs is that the pedal switches become mis-adjusted or the ears get broken off the switches causing a no contact condition. Another common problem is that the cruise vacuum hose leading from the vacuum pump under the false bulkhead begins to crack where the vacuum fitting is located at the firewall.. The third most common failure is an intermittent functioning cruise control module. This can often be identified by noting that the cruise will work intermittently (900 & 9000 only).
Another Issue: On turbo models, there is a vacuum controlled switch, located near the pump (red cap) that cuts the signal to the APC solenoid valve when the cruise control is on (switch opens). If the switch is faulty (I broke mine on rough road), it can keep turbo boost at the "basic" level even if the cruise is turned off. The APC boost gauge will only go half-way into the yellow region, and performance will suffer. Either replace the vacuum controlled switch or pull the pigtail connector below the switch and short the ends of the yellow/white wire going to the APC solenoid valve and
proper turbo boost should return. Be aware that if this second fix is employed, your turbo is not limited in boost when in cruise control.
