    The description of the P1312 code is: "Combustion detection cylinder 1+2, open circuit / short to B+". As diagnostic help is following added: "Fault diagnosis concerns an electrical fault in the connecting leads.". Understood as the lead/wiring between the DIC and Trionic 7 ECU, however do I believe this could be caused by a fault in the DIC detector 1+2 circuitry as well.

    In the Swedish version of the P1312 description is there a bottom note, translated: "The fault code is usually thrown due to sooty spark plugs", which applies for the P1334 code as well. Here is apparantly not soot the case, however as it points towards the plugs do I assume you have correct ones installed (?).

    SO change your plugs for new ones if the code come back change the DIC for a OEM one not proparts or any one not branded SEM .

    Mentioning what engine your 2004 9-3 has is really important when asking for help with engine codes, as you don't have a DIC your car should be a 2.0t with individual coil packs and an ION module. If this code came with spark plug replacement, the first thing to check is the spark plug gap.

    The plugs, coil packs and ION module are way to interdependent complicated to explain how this code can happen, so just pull your new plugs and check the gaps. The plug gap specs may say you can run from .035 to .039, but that doesn't mean that four plugs can have three or four different gap sizes inside that range and not throw a code. This is a precision measurement check with feeler gage.

    If the top looks closed with the front pulled down tight and the display tells you it's not, you probably had a stuck sensor, or the signals somehow got out of synch, or you have low fluid, or bad pump, or, or, or. Either way you will need to open it manually to find out, so open it manually and then hold the switch until it closes completely and run it up and down a couple of times. If it was just a sticky switch they usually get unstuck with use.

    Your top sensors are on the pump or in the hydraulic lines near the pump, but for which is which and what does what you will need to get your own WIS copy, way to many pictures in the step by step troubleshooting to copy and post.

    Did your top run up after you lowered it? If not check your fuses first.
