#1903 of 2237 Stalling Problems 2000 Saab 95
Jun 20, 2005 (9:06 am)
I am right now trying to find out why my 2000 Saab 95 is stalling on me. For the last 3 summers whenever it gets over 85 degrees, randomly my car will just stall. If I let it sit for awhile it will start back up but this can take an hour or so. I have had it into 2 different mechanics, neither can get it to die on them and haven't figured out for sure what it is. The think it could be a fuel pump but not sure since it has been going on for a few summes now. I am getting really frustrated and was referred to this website to maybe find someone who has had a similiar problem.

I'm having the same problem with my 1999 9.5se. Were you able to solve the problem? What caused it?
any assistance would be appreciated so I can pass it along to my new mechanic.
#1908 of 2237 2004 Aero has bad throttle body !!!!!
Jul 03, 2005 (7:55 pm)
I love my SAAb but I should have known I got a bad one when it broke down the first day I had it. I was doing 70 mph and all of a sudden, the car had no power. After two weeks back at the dealer, they replaced the throttle body ( had to get the part from Sweden).. This has happened two times since and the car only has 28,000 miles on it. Has anyone else experienced this problem ??? I think I have a LEMON !!!!!

Not possible to have 2 throttle bodies changed in such a short span. Change your dealer and also explain in detail what happened in the first place.
#1911 of 2237 headlight beam failure
Jul 05, 2005 (5:41 am)
it may happen to you . has happened to many from what i have read in other forums.
this is the way it goes .
you lose the low beam.
the high is good. and you get home with it. maybe ?
then ,you will lose the high beam.
to make the story short.
go to the engine fuse box.
you will see that there are 4 headlight fuses .plus one grey low beam relay,plus an orange low,hi beam relay.
check out the small 4 fuses first . they are in front and next to each other.
if all ok , then the culprit is the orange fuse.
here are your choices ,( i have just learned this over the past few days )
dealer $110 for the fuse plus maybe another $ 60. to install ,etc...or more if they can get away with it )
you---------- and this is what i did after being told how to. $20.
take out the orange fuse by moving the tab on top to the side and then pulling hard on the fuse.
then ,using a small knife pry open the bottom. easy to do,even i did it.
then take out the circuit board .
if you are able ,with a magnifying glass, look at the bottom of the board and you will see that there are 2 or 4 split solders.
or, take the fuse out ,take it to a tv repair place and ask them to inspect and resolder the busted part.
total cost $ 20.
like my granchildren say, ALL DONE.
happy trails again .
and ,in spite of all this and other problems ,this saab is still my favorite car over my mb and others including an fx35.
i may change my mind if this keeps up.
