Saab 9-5 (1999) Low Beam Headlight Problem - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Greetings! I own a 1999 9-5 with 58K; a great car. It's recently developed headlight problems. The wiring to each of the low beam bulbs was singed/burned slightly. The Grand Rapids Saab Dealer (Fox) replaced the ends of the electrical plugs that attach to the low-beam bulb. Immediately upon picking up the car, the same problem occurred. The technician then manipulated the end of the plug for the passenger side low-beam (the one that goes out; bulb remains okay), and it stayed on for about 3 miles. I need to bring it back but am wondering if the low-beam module (under the hood with other fuses) could be the problem. I wiggled the low beam module and this resulted in the "Front Light Bulb" warning not going on. Do I need to replace this module and avoid another 120 mile round trip to Grand Rapids? Any help would be immensely appreciated! Thanks and All the Best!
