1998 Saab 900 2.0turbo automatic

Asked by May 17, 2017 at 03:37 PM about the 1998 Saab 900

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

was wondering if anyone had any clues of
what could possibley be the provlem with
my car.
Saab 1998 900 with 2.0turbo

So iv had my engine code checked about 4
times by 4 diffrent people. All come up with
a code saying my front o2 circuit slow
response(P0133) andd another code that
has to do with system voltage (P0560).
So when i turn on my car it either starts up
just fine but my check engine and check
gearbox (which is my transsmission from
what i read) come on at the same time
everytime never one or the other sepretly
and it will drive just fine like nothing wrong
until possible next time i go to start my car.
Other times it starts fine but when i go to
accelerate from a complete stop and it
doesnt want to go i have to get up to about
10miles an hour until it goes just fine. I
normaly shift down to 2nd and shift up as i
gain speed when this happens and
everytime i come to a stop it does the same
thing. Then there is the times ibstart my car
and none of my gages move my gas, temp,
speedometer everything just stays down as
if my car was off and when this happe s my
car starts to idle really funny like its gonne
die and my srs light also comes on and all
my lights dim i normaly immediately shut my
car off when it starts like this and just have
to keep retrying till it desides to start right
and all my gages pop up to where they
should be.

Now before all this started happenimg about
5 days ago or so just randomly one day,
never had any problems at all before that,
my dashlight would come on whenever they
wanted sometimes pressing on the dash
made them come for a moment sometimes
it wouldn't. Sometimes they would work just
fine. My cassette bluetooth tape would pop
in and out as i was driving randomly. My car
would say breaklight failure across my info
screen almost everytime i started my car but
my breaklights are just fine all working. So i
already knew my car had some kinda wiring
thing wrong or something was loose or not
fully connencted somewhere. Which didnt
really seem concern me as much as all the
new problems are... Until these check lights
came on and my car started actually acting
like its gonne break down, There has also
been about 3 times since all this that i was
driving maybe going about 15 or 20mph
when I have watched my gages on my dash
drop and my car start to feel like im losing
power everytime i have pulled over and as i
come to a stop my car dies. It starts back up
afterward but not always on the first try
sometimes the gages wont start working for
about 5 to 10min of trying to restart my car.
Doesnt seem to matter if my car is warmed
up or cold for these problems to happen or
for them not to happen. Everytime i start my
car its always a surprise if any checklights
are gonna be on or it run just fine like before.

Its frustrating cause i know absolutely
nothing about this car and im not sure where
to start. But my first thought is to go buy an
o2 sensor and start there.. But i have also
been told to check my wiring on everything..  
And also before i had problems with my car
acting up i would press on the side of my
dash to try and get my dash to light up when
i needed a quick look at how fast i was
going or check how much gas i had and the
last time i tryed that was one of the times
my gages all dropped to zero and i had to
pull over and my car lost power so could it
be the wires in my dash too?

I dont know if anyone have any suggestions
on what i can do or where to start.  I know i
dont have enough money to take it to a shop
between all my bills i wll barley be able to
offord parts that i may need to replace
depending on how bad my car is messed up
and whats wrong..
Again My car is a 1998 saab 900 its got a
2.0turbo
Any advice at all would help
