Hi Guys, first time posting.

I have a 2001 Saab 93 SE. I had to replaced the ABS Module (rebuilt), I took out the battery also as it was good and put it in my jeep. Well fast foward 3 weeks. I put the abs module in and the battery. Now my flashers go off and the horn just blareing, even with it off.

Is this part of the alarm? I've tried to do a disable, lock all doors then unlock, lock/unlock while inside, start the car up and lock and unlock.

I really do not want to bring it to the saab dealership, they want 95 an hour... i just want to drive my car :( lol any assistance is greatly appricated.


P.S. there are no Indy Saab Repair shops here in Baton Rouge, LA. Only one Saab dealer in the south (maybe north LA also)

your alarm is most likely shot. the alarm module is powerd by a battery, which unfortunatly is solder in and is not replacable and you'd have to buy a new alarm system and i dont know what they run now a days but i think its around 400 bucks.....anyways right around this point in the cars life they die, which will cause your alarm to go retarded. this happend to me shortly after i bought my 9-3. just disconnect the battery, let it sit for a few min. that kind of reboots the car and i would take it to a saab dealer and have a mechanic take a Tech 2 device and have the system turned off.

I have disconnected the battery. still gets itchy with me :(

MY glimp of hope was crushed :( I let it sit for a couple of hours and plugged it in.. no lights!! but 30seconds later.. came flashing with a vengeance.

How much is a new alarm module? example from eeuroparts? I searched alarm and it just gets me the keyfob.

thank you for the info :( damn i do not want to pay Gerry Lane saab 100 dollars just to turn off the alarm.. and wait all day for it.

and i bet if that doesnt fix the issue they are going to charge me another 100 just to use their tech 2 tool.

no no no, it should only cost you 20-30 bucks to do a tech 2 service, during that time they will change ANY settings on your car apon request. tell them to get fucked if they charge any more than what i said. you might even get lucky and get it done for free.

heh God I hope i have some luck on my side lol. Today has just been filled with probs.

I wished i had the moohlah for my own tech 2.. Id tell the dealership to turn that "bend over" service on each other in a heartbeat.

again thank you for all your assistance on this.

Just wanted to check.. is there anyway i could disable the flashers to drive it to the dealership?
