2006 Saab 9-3 Owner Comments

problem #2

I was driving car on middle lane on highway approaching traffic, when my car completely shut off. This was after getting a complete tune up including oil change, new batteries and tires. Towed car to repair shop and after repair, the engine light remained on and then there was smell of gas and car continued to stall. Took car back to repair shop, where the fuel injector was replaced and gas smell was eliminated. But engine light remained on and car completely shut off again. Took it to repair shop, yet again. This time, starter was changed and mechanic claims that a new ECU/ECM is needed for engine but part for 2006 model has been discontinued and is now running on 2004 eci/ECM and engine light still remains on and started is a bit rough.

Multiple shorts indicated on sid. Original message "electronic stability control failure". this is a common complaint amongst Saab owners for this make and model. Occasionally, an associated an ABS failure indication will appear while traveling. Have not noticed a loss in ABS function yet, but it was dry when these shorts occurred. The failure is assumed to be associated with the cruise control function and its use has been lost.
