Subject: Re: Brake light problems


I have a similar problem with my '88 9kt -- except my brake lights stay on intermittently, my rear driver's side tail light will not come on, nor will my drivers side front light (not the headlight) -- plus my front passenger side light comes on briefly upon starting. Got all that? I am told it is probably the pictogram relay, but there was a suggestion, actually a SAAB service bulletin, on beefing up the ground on the tail lights. I did this, taking twelve guage copper wire and grounding the shit out of it at several spots from the tailights, across the rear of body -- all to no avail. I am not sure there is a fix, and don't really care to spend the $150 plus for a new relay, because I don't think it will work anyway.
