    Help Needed Cleveland OH

    Hello, I need help with my 2006 Saab 9-3 SportCombi -- the left headlight is stuck on. It will not turn off even with the key removed.

    Purchased this car a few weeks ago and the left headlight was not working. Determined it was a bad ballast and replaced the ballast. Now the headlight won't turn off. I removed the entire left side headlight assembly and swapped it with the right side assembly to see if it was the assembly or something else. The right side assembly when plugged in the left came on and wouldn't turn off. The left side assembly worked normally when plugged into the right side.

    I was told by another poster that "the headlights are individually controlled by the computer that is part of the engine compartment fuse box AKA the UEC (
    Underhood Electrical Center) and you need a Tech 2 to reprogram". I did try two other UECs and the headlight still has the same issue. So it seems a Tech2 device is needed.

    Is there anyone in the Cleveland area that can help me with this?

    Thank you.

    There are a few Saab Service Centers in the Cleveland area. They should be able to do this.
