Solving 2001 Saab 9-5 ABS/TCS/CEL Problem -EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/
This 2001 Saab 9-5 came in with just about every light lit up on the dash.
The first code I pulled was a P1625 for the CEL which indicates a
communication error between the ABS unit and the PCM. After looking into
this code I found out this is a common problem with these Bosch ABS units.
Rather than purchasing a new unit however I decided to send the existing
ABS unit off to BBA Remanufacturing for remanufacture. Some of these units
require that you pair a new unit up with the PCM, mine was one of those so
sending off my existing unit made the most sense because if I had just
gotten a remanufactured one I would have had to program it to work with the
cars PCM. This took a bit longer but it saved me quite a bit of trouble in
the end. Here are some useful links mentioned in the video.

Beautiful Swedish car, SAAB 9-5.
I am really into SAAB cars; I own a 2003 9-3 that I am very fond of. I put
together this video, from different clips, for the new Saab 9-5. I think
the new 9-5 is very stylish in design and sporty in performance. I am
seriously considering buying one and when I do I will be sure to make a
video to share how I feel about Saab's great cars
