Hi everyone. It's my first time posting here, so I hope I'm going
about this the right way.
I recently bought a Saab 900S (4-door) (1988) with 185k mi on it. Now
that I have replaced the muffler, it is really in pretty good shape,
and runs and drives very nicely. Looks cool too!! (It's black.)
The problem is that the following don't work: 1) dash lights (behind
speedometer & tach), 2) the dome (interior) light, and 3) the heated
seats (don't care about heated seats, but wanted to list all symptoms).
Everything else electrical works fine: warning bulbs (P-Brake, etc.),
headlights, cig. lighter, radio, windows, locks, horn, turn signals,
etc. The rheostat works as I can use it to dim the "Fasten Belts" sign
and other center console lights.
I would like to know if there is one likely issue that is obviously
causing all three symptoms? I have already looked at all the fuses,
and they all look fine as far as I can see. The garage I use said they
would have to charge me $80 just to inspect that kind of problem.
I hope I explained this clearly enough. I would really appreciate any
advice as to how I should proceed since I would really like to get this
Thanks in advance,
