Saab Recall 05087/15021B: Engine Stalling
2002 Saab 9-5
Overheating of the igbt occurs most often at engine start-up, but it may also occur while the engine is running. Engine stalling may occur, which could result in a crash.
Electrical System — Ignition — Module
- Certain passenger vehicles equipped with B308 6-cylinder gasoline engines may experience overheating and burnout of the isolated gated bipolar transistor (igbt) within the ignition discharge module (idm) due to increased susceptibility to electrical loads.
- Dealers will inspect to see what version idm is in the vehicle and replace the idm if it is a version built prior to January 2003. The recall is expected to begin during December 2005. Owners may contact Saab at 1-800-955-9007. Note: This recall is an expansion of a previous campaign (please see 05V399).
