Having problems with your Saab 9 3 ?

I have a 2005 saab 93 turbo and only the left blinker works. It will work in the down(left signal) and in the neutral position, so i have to put the blinker it the up(right signal) position in order to turn the left blinker off. It is very annoying and was wondering if this could be done by myself or if i'll have to bring it to a mechanic, thanks

Presumably you've checked the right-hand indicator bulbs (front, side, and rear), so it sounds like your turn signal relay. Fortunately this is a really easy procedure:

  1. Locate your relay cluster. You can find this in your car's owner's manual.\015\012
  2. \015\012
  3. Locate the turn signal relay. This should also be in your owner's manual. If it's not, you can consult the service manual for your car (these are TOUGH to find online...I suggest www.alldatadiy.com; you should find the relays hidden behind the fuse panel on the passenger's side of the\015\012car. Pop open the fuse box, remove the carpeting on the bottom of the\015\012dash/footwell, unscrew the fuse panel and the relays should be right\015\012there).

  5. Once you can see your relays, check to make sure it's properly connected. If not, remove the old turn signal\015\012flasher relay and replace it with the new one.


If that fails, check the connectors to your light assembly for any cracked or worn cables. Obtaining the wiring diagram for your vehicle will help. You can also test the connections using a voltmeter. The service manual (not readily available but you might find it online with a bit of digging) should specify the operating ranges. This will take care of the diagnostics, but unless you've got experience with replacing wiring or connections I'd take it in.
Sounds like the switch is broken,The switch is fairly inexpensive and the labor to replace it is only .8~ but I would caution you when considering replacing it yourself.
\015\012You may have to remove the steering wheel. If so the battery would need to be disconnected in order to remove it as the airbag would hold a charge otherwise.( Time includes R&I/R&R steering wheel.)
