Electrical Oddities

Hi Everyone,

I have a 2005 Saab 92x with 153K.

Lately I've been experiencing some weird electrical problems:

1. The car stalls almost immediately after the first start of the day.

2. The "Valet Mode" security (blinking red security light on dash) keeps coming back on after I shut it off (by holding unlock on key fob)

3. The "Door Ajar" light is on, but all doors (and the trunk door) are securely shut.

Are these issues related or three different problems?

Thanks,

SB

Re: Electrical Oddities

Check voltage of battery, maybe not getting enough of a recharge.  Check fuses, and I mean take out and look at them.  It's possible to have a fuse that is only partially broken.

Re: Electrical Oddities

Appreciate your reply very much.

I looked at the fuse box diagram and can't quite tell which fuse it might be. Any ideas?

Re: Electrical Oddities

Automotive fuses are 'fast blow' type. They either are or are not blown - they cannot be partially blown.

Your issue is likely low voltage related, as first suggested. What is the resting and running voltage of the car?

Re: Electrical Oddities

Then you need a mechanic.

And yet, I've seen it happen.
