How to reset a Saab B235R throttle body from Limp-Home-Mode
This is a very easy how-to on resetting a throttle body from limp-home-mode for most OG9-3 and NG900's (and some 9-5's). The dealership will charge you LOTS of money for this simple 5 minute job. You will also have to have the check engine light reset, but you can get that done for free usually at Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts, or if you have an OBDII scan tool, clearing the codes will clear the code & light that a reset throttle body will throw.
Yamaha R1 vs Police (SAAB 9-5 Aero)
*** EDIT: The officer driving the police car was later sentenced to pay a
ticket, 19.000 SEK (€ 2000 // $ 2850). The reason was he didn´t obey
order to abort pursuit and he didn´t had the permission to cut the bike

like the police doesn´t use their sirens. The driver of the police car was
later charged for not obey order. 6.34 he receives the order to abort the
pursuit. And yes, the guy on the R1 didn´t have the skills to keep the
Quick Tip-Throttle Cleaning - EricTheCarGuy
This one goes out to BowlingBallOut who posted a question about a sticky
throttle on his Saturn. It was a great question so I decided to make this
video in response to it. There are many different configurations of
throttle assemblies but for the most part if you have a throttle that is
sticking you might be able to fix it using the procedures in this video. I
am aware you may not able to purchase spray throttle cleaner in some states
now but I'm sure they have some alternative available at your local parts
One very important note here is that if you have a drive by wire throttle
(DBW), then I do NOT recommend this procedure. If you perform this
procedure on a DBW throttle body you may need to have the throttle reset in
order to get your engine to idle or even start. I only recommend this
procedure if you're trying to correct a problem with a sticking throttle.
If you have idle problems, I recommend you check out this article on my

1999 Saab 9-3 - Acceleration Problems
My saab started stalling (the engine acts as if it stops running, and then
starts running again). This causes the rpms to fluctuate (sometimes going
down 1500 rpm before coming back up). However, if I let the engine idle,
there is no stalling. The longer I drive it, the worse it gets, until it
stalls when slight pressure is applied to the accellerator. When I turn
off the car and start it back up, it runs normal for a little bit. This
problem has been getting progressively worse and now the car isn't
Also, when the accelerator is pressed hard from idle, there is a dip in the
rpms. However, when in park I can raise the rpms to any level and it will
stay there without fluctuating.
The computer is throwing the code P0108, the map sensor is showing higher
pressure than expected. I have replaced the map sensor and all vacuum
lines connected to the throttle body (they were in bad shape). After doing
both of the above, the car seemed to work fine, then 30 miles down the road
it was back to the same problem. After this I started throwing parts at
it, and replaced the fuel filter, the fuel pressure regulator, and the
spark plugs, I also cleaned out the throttle body. These had no effect.
Just now, I used a baby snot bulb connected to turbo bypass valve to test for leaks, but it
didn't seem to be losing vacuum.
