Block Heater Saab # 0249953

Anyone running a block heater? 0249953

Experiences? Any idea on turn-off temperature (if at all)? I see that they're 400W but can't find much otherwise.

Part number looks to be the same for the 9-3 and 9-5 4-cyls. Hoping they're still around, I just put an order for 5 for the fleet and'll post up experience when I get one in.

Just from my impression looking at the picture, I don't think it is thermostatically controlled. It looks like it just constantly heats the coolant. And I'm assuming you need to knock out a freeze plug and put the heater in its place?

We have block heaters installed in almost of our Diesel engines at my work and they run as long as you have them plugged in. But they all work extremely well.

Put one in the in-laws VW TDI, its not thermostatically controlled, so I put it on a heavy duty timer and just have it turn on about 2 hours before they leave for work.

Well, my payment was returned and they're on backorder. Having instructions is sweet though.

I'd still love to have one. I know there are aftermarket plug style heaters, I suppose I'll do some measureing...

Drew, ever get around to doing this? I just found an NOS one on facebook I'd like to install in my Viggen. Any idea where I could get a timer for it? I'm assuming the OEM timer is probably NLA just like the heater.

Just grab a heavy duty timer from a hardware store.

Hey I forgot about this thread. I eventually traced-down the OEM for the original units that Saab was reselling for the application, whose name escapes me right now, and O'Reilly's was the only place that I could find that carried them. I know that's not too usefull lol, I'll dig around a little and see if I can find where I saved the info.

2nd SRP's comment on the timer.

Found my notes, it's a Zerostart® - Engine Heater: 3100033

400W. Should be less than 4 Amps if I remember how things work correctly.

Still selling it:

Thanks, I appreciate it! One benefit of having the Viggen off the road, I get to mess around with it!
