    Saab 9-5 recalls - NHTSA - USA

    Source: http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov




    NHTSA campaign ID number: 03v006000
    Vehicle Make / Model: SAAB / 9-5
    Model Year(s): 1999-2003
    Component: WHEELS:CAP/COVER/HUB
    Potential Number of Units Affected: 70726

    Summary:
    On certain passenger vehicles, if an owner changes their wheels/tires between summer and winter using a steel wheel in the winter and an alloy wheel in the summer, it is possible for rust and contamination to build up on the wheel hub during the steel wheel usage. If this occurs and the contamination is not removed, it is possible that after the tire change service, some of this contamination could flake or grind away resulting in reduced clamping force of the wheel to the hub. Over several seasons, it is possible that this reduced force could result in fractures developing in the wheel bolts due to wheel to hub movement.

    Consequence:
    These fractures would result in wheel bolt breakage, allowing the wheel to detach from the wheel hub, increasing the risk of a crash.

    Remedy:
    Owners will be contacted by mail and asked whether they change between steel and alloy wheels. If they do engage in this practice, they will be instructed to bring their cars to an authorized dealer. The dealer will remove the wheels, clean any contamination from the wheel and wheel hub, and replace the wheels using new improved bolts with attached washers. Owner notification began march 31, 2003. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact saab at 1-800-955-9007.

    Notes:
    Saab recall no. 15013. Customers can also contact the national highway traffic safety administration┐s auto safety hotline at 1-888-dash-2-dot (1-888-327-4236).




    NHTSA campaign ID number: 05v399000
    Vehicle Make / Model: SAAB / 9-5
    Model Year(s): 2000-2002
    Component: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:IGNITION:MODULE
    Potential Number of Units Affected: 103202

    Summary:
    Certain passenger vehicles equipped with B205/B235 4-cylinder gasoline engines and B308 6-cylinder gasoline engines may experience overheating and burnout of the isolated gated bipolar transistor (IGBT) within the ignition discharge module (IDM) due to increased susceptibility to electrical loads.

    Consequence:
    Overheating of the IGBT occurs most often at engine start-up, but it may also occur while the engine is running. Engine stalling may occur, which could result in a crash.

    Remedy:
    Dealers will inspect to see what version IDM is in the vehicle and replace the IDM if it is a version built prior to the introduction of qp3. An interim letter will be mailed to owners in October 2005, informing them of the condition. Parts are now available and owners will be notified to bring their vehicles in to the dealers to have the idm replaced by letter dated march 13, 2006. Owners may contact Saab at 1-800-955-9007.

    Notes:
    Saab recall no. 05087. Customers may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration┐s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).




    NHTSA campaign ID number: 07v087000
    Vehicle Make / Model: SAAB / 9-5
    Model Year(s): 2001-2005
    Component: FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE : DELIVERY:HOSES, LINES/PIPING, AND FITTINGS
    Potential Number of Units Affected: 94377

    Summary:
    On certain passenger vehicles, the fuel pump retaining tabs holding the fuel lines were damaged during production.

    Consequence:
    Over time, this could cause the fuel lines to loosen from the pump resulting in fuel leakage. If an ignition source were present, the fuel may ignite resulting in a vehicle fire.

    Remedy:
    Dealers will develop a securing bracket that will secure the fuel lines to the fuel pump even if the plastic retaining tabs should break. The recall began on June 13, 2007. This is an expansion of previous recall campaigns - see 04v557 and 06v126. Owners may contact Saab at 1-800-955-9007.

    Notes:
    Saab recall no. 07052 (15018, 06033). Customers may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).




    NHTSA Campaign ID number: 02v006000
    Vehicle Make / Model: SAAB / 9-5
    Model Year(s): 2002
    Component: STEERING:LINKAGES:KNUCKLE:SPINDLE:ARM
    Potential Number of Units Affected: 2601

    Summary:
    The steering knuckle castings on certain passenger vehicles may have been contaminated during the casting process.

    Consequence:
    These knuckles can break, resulting in possible loss of steering control.

    Remedy:
    Dealers will inspect the steering knuckle for the casting number. If the knuckle was in the defective batch, the steering knuckle will be replaced. Owner notification is expected to begin during January 2002. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Saab at 1-800-955-9007.
