Saab 9-3 Check Engine Light Caused by Secondary Air Injection Pump

(10 reports)

The Check Engine Light may illuminate because of air injection pump, and/or check valve failure. There may be no drivability symptoms detected.

Light routinely turns on and then goes off. -
ac delco carries the same part, just on a different bracket. Search the saab part on Amazom and you`lll see the alternate. 1/3 the cost!!! Also, car will run fine with the secondary air pump, new models of same car do not have it. Yes, check engine light will remain on however. -
The check valve will fail first, causing condensate from exhaust to accumulate in the pump. This results in pump failure, and the resultant CEL. The check valve should be replaced every 2 years or so to prevent the more expensive pump failure from occurring. Needless to say, the check valve should be replaced at the same time that the pump is. -
I had this repaired 1.5 years ago and it is now pulling the same code again. I believe it was repaired incorrectly, obviously, but i've let it go probably longer than the repair place will take the blame, i will try though. Obviously this is a problem with the saab, i've seen complaints on other sites for the same thing. -
