2003 Saab 9-5 Engine And Engine Cooling Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID683704

Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemI was driving on the highway when my cruise control shut off and the check engine light came on. When i came to a stop my entire car died. I was stuck at a stop light in the middle of rush hour. I had to hold my left foot on the brake and pump the gas pedal to get the car to rev, but it wouldn't continue to idle. It kept dying. I had to use both the brake pedal and the gas pedal to get it off the highway to a side street, which was extremely dangerous. Several times the car died. I took it to a gm certified repair shop who after three diagnostic checks determined the ignition module needed to be replaced along with the spark plugs because the engine was misfiring. I want saab to recall this part and pay for the repair. It is the exact same part and problem that they recalled for 2000-2002 vehicles. It makes absolutely no sense that the 2003 part has not been recalled. This is a serious safety hazard and something needs to be done to fix it and i should not have to pay for it.
