The purchase date and powertrain were unknown. If I am not under the recall, I do not understand what makes my failing car part different from the other parts that were recalled for my vehicle. I went online to research prices of coil packs or ignition cassettes for my car. Auto mobile was 2000 Saab 9-5 with a V-6 reference recall notice 05V399000, Saab denies this vehicle was under the recall. The contact would have to pay for the repair. The vehicle was taken to the service dealer, who replaced the ignition module.
The contact believes that the vehicle should be repaired according to the recall since the failures were identical. The engine began to overheat and the vehicle stalled. The mechanic inspected the vehicle and stated that the cause of failure was the ignition module. It mated with cylinder 6 spark plug. The failure mileage was 134,000. The failure mileage was 80,000 and the current was unknown. However, I believe that Saab is skirting on their responsibilities since the V6 model uses the exact same part as the one covered under the recall.
Six months later, the vehicle began jerking while driving 55 mph on the highway. The vehicle was not repaired. Two idm cassettes Saab part number 9187436 were purchased and installed by owner to remedy the problem. He told me to replace the spark plugs and in that did not fix the problem that I would have to replace the coil pack. The car started shaking violently and I picked up the burning smell of electronics coming from the front of my car. The vehicle was towed to the contact's residence.
I asked the auto technician what could cause that to happen. I nursed her into a garage not a Saab garage and the mechanic diagnosed it with a ignition cassette failure. The current and failure mileages were 100,000. Once the code was cleared, attempting to restart the engine resulted in the P1310 code being produced again. The engine stalled while on the interstate highway. The vehicle was safely driven to the side of the road and the engine was shut off. The failure recurred six months later.
On March 15, 2007, the vehicle stalled and was towed to the dealer. The code came back as a cylinder misfire on cylinder 2. The vehicle was towed to his residence. The 4 cylinder version of the Saab ignition coils have already been recalled, and I think the 6 cylinder version should be too. The failure occurred three times and the vehicle was taken to the dealer numerous times. The current and failure mileages were 78,015. The contact was able to pull off the road before the vehicle completely shut off.
The contact took the vehicle back to the shop and the ignition module was replaced once again. The contact took the vehicle to a repair shop and the ignition module was replaced. I had the car towed, and diagnostics indicated multiple misfires on a few cylinders controlled by one bank of two. When driving at various speeds under any condition the vehicle would stall. The consumer stated when she started the vehicle, it lunged forward and then stall. I then called the dealership to find out what should be done to find out if my vehicle was in fact one of the vehicles with a recalled part.
The vehicle has stalled immediately after the engine was started or even before the vehicle was moved. The current mileage was 125,000 and failure mileage was 115,000. Minutes later, the interior lighting dimmed, the vehicle dramatically decelerated, and a burning smell was present. This is a very dangerous defect and should be addressed for all Saab with these part numbers. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic, who stated that the ignition cassette was causing the vehicle to jerk. Just recently, about a month ago, my check engine light came on in the car. Then, a few weeks later the throttle body failed and left me stranded again.
The contact stated that the vehicle often stalled while driving or will not start at all. I tried to pull her over and put some dry gas in her hoping that would fix it but it did not. The contact feels that the manufacturer should be responsible for the repairs since the failures were identical to those listed in the recall. The failure has occurred on several occasions. Car was started 5 times prior to failure, taking longer to start each time. So I replaced the spark plugs and the problem continued.
