I have a 2002 93 SE and have been having intermittent check engine light. A local shop scanned it and came up with the following codes P1334 - combustion detection cyl 3&4 open short circuit and code P1312 - ombustion detection cyl 1&2 open short circuit. The car has 40500 miles on it. The local dealer quoted 2 hours of diagnostics at approx $178. Is this a simple fix or should it go back to the dealer?

Yes I am still waiting on an answer.
Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I apologize for the delay in getting your answer to you!For the codes listed, the #1 cause for that is a faulty Ignition Coil Assembly (often called an Ignition Cassette). I'm really surprised they wanted to charge you 2 hours diagnostics, when its a very common failure on these cars (unless it was recently replaced already).So common in fact, that many of these were recalled. You might be able to call them and see if your car was/is eligible for the recall.Here is a parts listing of the part, so you can see what it looks like:http://eeuroparts.com/Parts/PartDetail.php?partCode=55559955The price shown is very high, you can usually find them cheaper than that!

Thanks - I will look for the parts. The car was at a local shop, not a saab specific shop. I thought this would be a simple fix. The dealer tried to tell me it sounded like a broken wire??
I would inquire about the status of the recall. If your vehicle is included, then replacement is free!
Thanks again -- I assume there is only one coil that controls all four cylinders.
There are two coils, but they are built together as an assembly, so yes, just one part.
