1. Check the fuses first.

2. If the switch doesn't operate either mirror it likely is the switch.

Carefully pry it away from door or dash and check if wires are attached securely.

If they are, check if the contacts are clean - if not, refresh with sandpaper.

Test before replacing.

3. If one mirror works and the other not, suspect either the wire connection inside the mirror or the motor. Remove mirror from its motor by fishing around for the retaining clip (easier done if mirror is turned to the extreme left or right). This will expose the wiring connections and the motor.

If the motor is suspected unscrew the back of mirror and pry off carefully to expose the motor mounting screws. You can then remove the motor and test it with another 12v power source.

Good luck !

The problem with replacing modules in the newer Saabs is last time I checked they are unavailable/backorder and good used replacements are almost impossible to find. You may have to chalk that one up as irreparable unless you know some electrical genius that can repair or create a functional replacement. (i.e. if all the module does is honk horn and turn on headlights a good electrical engineer could make a 12 volt something to do that very inexpensively. Good luck and be safe!

Well. I don't think they will be related. EPS is your electric power steering light. The hub would have the ABS system attached to it. Have it hooked up to a computer at a parts store for free and they will tell you the code that is tripping the light and what it is.

The fuse is in slot two of the fuse box in front of the battery and the relay is located on the inside of the car on the passenger side in front of the door under the dash

If just the gas gauge is the problem then you most likely have a defective fuel level sending unit. The fuel level sending unit for the gas gauge is located of course inside the gas tank.

There are several common cruise control failures on Saabs. The pedal switch failures are the most common problem. What generally occurs is that the pedal switches become mis-adjusted or the ears get broken off the switches causing a no contact condition. Another common problem is that the cruise vacuum hose leading from the vacuum pump under the false bulkhead begins to crack where the vacuum fitting is located at the firewall.. The third most common failure is an intermittent functioning cruise control module. This can often be identified by noting that the cruise will work intermittently (900 & 9000 only).

Another Issue: On turbo models, there is a vacuum controlled switch, located near the pump (red cap) that cuts the signal to the APC solenoid valve when the cruise control is on (switch opens). If the switch is faulty (I broke mine on rough road), it can keep turbo boost at the "basic" level even if the cruise is turned off. The APC boost gauge will only go half-way into the yellow region, and performance will suffer. Either replace the vacuum controlled switch or pull the pigtail connector below the switch and short the ends of the yellow/white wire going to the APC solenoid valve and
proper turbo boost should return. Be aware that if this second fix is employed, your turbo is not limited in boost when in cruise control.
