Suddenly, the headlights (low and high beams) do not turn on. All other lights are good. Fuses and bulbs all check out or have been recently replaced. Suspect the big red headlight relay in hood fuse box, which has failed before and replaced. Hate to spend another fifty bucks on a "maybe." Any suggestions? Thanks, Dan

Well i got this saab from one of my dads friends. The car has been sitting for like five years now. I put gas in it. lights on dash turn on but still says there no gas. Not sure what to do next.
Starting fine, running great, all of a sudden wouldnt start. Got code P0123 and have tried so many things, thought it was the plug that goes to the sensor but now feeling it isn't. Got engine to turn over by using starter fluid but ofcourse wont stay running, engine isn't getting it's own gas. I'm single Mom, out of work and can't afford to have a garage fix it. Please help with some ideas.. I've been told chances are slim that the sensor itself went bad so what else could it be? I read something about a switch on the gas petal but found nothing there. I've reset the computer and tried the fuse trick too still nothing. Engine turns over, starter is working just not getting gas.
Was an intermittent problem now it is permanent
I just bought my 95 SAAB 9000 Griffin Edition a couple of weeks ago. The guy I bought it from said it needed a new radiator, and a heater core. I bought the new radiator, but before I buy a new heater core I want to make sure it needs a new heater core for sure. Alot of people have been saying that alot of the time it's the o-rings. Either way the guy I bought it from said the heater core was leaking into the car. When I looked at it, the hoses were cut... All in all I guess my question is, is does anyone know how to remove the heater core? Do I have to remove the dash, or anything from inside the car to take out the heater core. Or, can I just remove it from under the hood?
could the restraining spring cause this to happen? I notice its missing on the side I hear the grinding.
how can i disable SRS light in dash?
I asked how i can fix a saab 9000cse 92/94 american model which has its gearbox chamber mistakenly filled with half a small sieze dot3 brake fluid?
I have trouble starting my car at times. Generally it will start right up when the engines cold but if I make a short trip some where ( couple of miles or so) and stop and shut out the engine it may or may not start. I will try several times then give it a 5 to 10 minute wait and when I try again it will generaly start. I haven't drove the car now for a few months and when I tried today it won't start at all.(battery is fully charged) it turns over just won't start.
Well here goes. I HAVE VERY LITTLE BRAKING POWER. Both lights are on the brake fluid resevoir is full and the anti brake light is on.How much is this going to costs me to fix? It ain't cheap. I had to use the emergency brake to get home. Give me the bad news and give it to me straight.

I have fog lights, but no head lights. when i turn on headlights you can hear the clicking from the relay (under hood) but no lights. When we tested it with a meter the fog light mored the needle, lights did not move the meter. We bypassed the headlight switch by running a wire from relay to headlight fuses. any suggestions on what the isse is?
We have a 1995 Saab 9000CS with 193,000 miles on it. We were driving it today and noticed that the bottom of the drivers side windshield began fogging up. Then we could smell something burning that I thought might be oil. Smoke started comming out of the a/c vents and I did not have the a/c on as it was mild today, about 60 degrees. So I pulled over as quickly as possible and opened the hood. There was not smoke or steam in the engine compartment but the pipe with the valve flap at the end of it that extends out of the firewall had liquid pouring out of it. I thought it might be oil but discovered later that it was coolant. A large amount of liquid came out onto the pavement. It dripped right on top of what looked like the catalytic convertor or muffler. Our local mechanic did a head gasket replacement last week. Could this be related to that gasket replacement? The wrecker driver thought it might be the heater core. Why did it pour out of the pipe? Thank you, Doyle

Engine starts after cranking for approx. 10 to 15 seconds.
This happsens only infrequently. After starting, engine runs normally (very smooth). Is this a fuel problem, or related?
occasionally takes 8 to 15 seconds of cranking before engins starts. Installed new battery 3 weeks ago. This"fault" started over a year ago, it doesen't happen very often.
I have to crank engine 15 to 20 seconds (not always) especially after a long period parked before engine starts.
