    Thumbs up New Member with 2011 9-5 Turbo4 (South Florida)

    I have always loved this car after only seeing it 3 times, and finally was able to purchase one for myself. I am currently dealing with the tail bulbs & sockets (#13320956K) burning out and have already replaced them once . Is there a proper replacement? As well as the mysterious Check Engine Light which i will have fixed this week due to a corroded part at the cost of $120.00. Other than that I have replaced the front brakes and rotors due to break noise. This is a beautiful vehicle and I look forward to any knowledge and possible meet ups to help me keep this Unicorn healthy. Thanks

    Wellcome! The bulb problems appear to be more in US models? You find in facebook 2 great ng9-5 groups I recommend to join also. Names are like The Saab 9-5 NG connection and Int. SAAB 9-5 NG owners club.
    There has been at least conversations about the bulbs.

    I am a new member as well, although we've had our TUrbo4 for 5 years. I found both the bulbs and sockets online. I also found my biggest problem has been the contacts on the socket not touching the contacts in the taillight housing in hot weather due to non-uniform expansion in the heat. I just bent the contacts on the socket out slightly to cure that problem. I also found poor contact at the bottom of the bulb. I had to add some solder to some of the bulbs.

    Hope that helps.

    (We have a problem with the driver seat heater, but you are most likely not worried about that in So. FL.)

    Thanks for the heads up I will try this but if they blow the next thing i will have to go with is the LED conversion if i can get a defined way of going about it.

    Looking at the photograph you have a different indicator position from UK versions.

    The indicators are still incandescent but pretty much all the others are LEDs
