Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Saab 9-5 Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 012008

9-5 6-cyl

  • 88,000 miles


Bosch ABS module on 2001 Saab 9-5 SE V6 with 88,000 miles failed with ABS, tcs, brake, and /!\ failure lights displayed on dash. ABS no longer operable. Traction control system no longer operable. Engine management system no longer operable. Speedometer no longer operable. From reading many (over eight!) message boards, this an endemic problem with the Bosch ABS systems in many BMW, Saab, Cadillac catera, VW cars. Why can't the government recognize that this is an issue? ABS is brakes and brakes are a safety system. Please look into this. Contact bba-reman in taunton, MA, they handle fixing these systems and their load is very heavy.
