Electrical & Lights -- RepairPal and 29 others

the window goes up hits the top and right back down, the man at the saab dealership told me a lot of people have the problem, rather than saab repairing for free he said to hold down the window lock button while i'm putting the window up this seems to work.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

A knocking noise while turning and/or a banging noise when driving on rough roads may develop in the front suspension. This type of noise is commonly caused by a front strut thrust bearing damaged due to water intrusion. Our technicians tell us revised thrust bearings are available to correct this concern.

Brakes -- Verified

The anti-lock brake system (ABS) and/or traction control light may illuminate. This can be caused by corrosion in the (ABS) wire harness connector at the right front wheel speed sensor due to water intrusion.  Corroded connectors should be cleaned or replaced as necessary to correct this concern.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

A high or low beam failure may be indicated on the instrument panel display even though the lamps are working properly. Our technicians tell us reprogramming the control module with upgraded software may remedy the problem.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The license plate lights may not work due to corrosion caused by water intrusion into the light assembly. Cleaning the corrosion and resealing the lamps to prevent water entry should correct this concern.
