When I changed the battery of the car key, its doors and trunk stopped lock and unlock. The belt of the gas tank was broken also. I replaced also the fuel tank.

Electronic Stability Control problem #4

This has occurred on multi occasions. Usually in cold weather the car usually while braking will report a complete failure of the brake, anti-lock brakes, and stability control. Speedometer quits working, and message appears to come to a complete stop. Once you stop and turn off the car, and then restart all messages disappear and car returns to normal operation. The system may lead to an accident. This is the five incident over the last two years.

Electronic Stability Control problem #6

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.

Electronic Stability Control problem #7

I have had my 2006 SAAB 9-3 in for service 4 times for an abs/traction control/stability control failure. Each time I take it to the dealership, they tell me that the cost is around $385 for a hub assembly, no labor included. I have talked to many people who have had the same problem. The real problem is that the wire leading to the wheel corrodes. Now my car is at the dealership for the same problem and they want to put in a rear harness for the same system and want to charge me $315 just for the part, doesn't include labor. This part has been found for around $120 elsewhere. This is very frustrating as the car acts as a totally different animal when it is not functioning properly. Every time this has happened the temperature has been 40 degrees f or lower.

Electronic Stability Control problem #8
