Subject: Re: SAAB headlight wiring problem???

You didn't say what make and year you have. But, I have a similar problem with my 94 900S. Intermitently when I hit the high beams, the lows go off and the highs do not come on. The indicator on the dash show blue and no computer error, but the light are off. This is very disconcerting driving 90 mph down a dark two lane road. ;-) I will drive another mile or two and try it again and it works. I have had the tech look at it 8 times, but of course he cannot find anything wrong with it. GarDian wrote: > > Hi, > > Yesterday when I was driving.
