New to Saabs left my VW days behind...

So, heres the deal my good friend has put a bug in my ear to by a saab.. Well this weekend I did. I bought a 1996 900se turbo, with 180K, engine and tranny we rebuilt around 90k ago.. the car does have a few issues, the right turn signal will not work, they tried replaicng relays, blinker assembly unit it self (not sure what you call it) and still nothing. I need help with that asap, before I get pulled over. One of the other issues is that the dash seems to have a short or loose connection because it will shut or blink when going over a bump.. I have to say I love this car already and what to give thanks to HawaiianSAAB for getting me into Saabs..... PS. I bought the car for $1500.00came with all the service records from Taliaferro/genuinesaab. Hopefully a good deal, we shall see.

The gremlin for the dash lights coming on sounds like a ignition switch going bad.

As for the right turn signal, i'm willing to bet it has something to do with ICE.

Ice

Integrated control Electronics sometimes called DICE (for dash Integ.........) is a bunch of relays mounted up under the left side of the dash in a white plastic base. You will see one screw that would be closest to your shin that holds the base up in there. The base has a bunch of wires hanging out the bottom. Anyway, it has large plastic pins on either side that fit into slots.
Remove the screw and slide it towards you. It will drop down. The relays are removable, just like the relay box under the hood. Good Luck

You mention the relays, do you think it's just the relay or the whole ICE module? also, is there a diagram showing the diffrent relays and what they control or is it just a guessing game?

Stick your Left arm out of the window and make an L shape with it. That means you wish to make a RH turn. If you stuck it straight out that would mean LH turn. If you want to be awesome, make a fist when you do it. I would see no reason to get pulled over for making the following signals.

Get a Haynes manual and start checking and cleaning as many of the grounds as you can. There's one under the hatch lid that often corrodes from the dampness in the trunk (a very common issue with NG900s)

good luck...
