My son just bought a '99 9-5 2.3 turbo. The car is in good shape over-all. But on the way home with it, it suddenly stopped heating and the temp guage dropped out. If not for the heated seats, it would have been bad! I spent all day looking at it. I am new to saabs and can't even find the thermostat on the thing! sitting still, it heats up on the passenger side, but always blows cold on the drivers side. When you get it out on the road, it cools down and when guage hits bottom, it shuts the heat off. I know it has to be something simple, but I need HELP! Any thoughts? Or at least the location of the thermostat?
cool one

the thermostat is on the back of the cylinder head at the end of the upper radiator hose. It is beneath the aluminum cover that is held to the head by 2 bolts. The thermostat should be assembled with the air bleed pointing to the 12 o'clock position. Press the "off" and "auto" buttons simultaneously with the key in the on position. If the climate control sceen displays any number other than 00, then there is a problem in the heater box. The heater flap for the driver's side is probably broken.
Note...If you replace the thermostat, spend a couple of extra dollars and replace the coolant gauge sender that is located on the cylinder head above the transmission. It is usually grey or blue in color and is a 2 prong connector.
