Customer Question

My Saab has codes of p1701, p1923 & p1925
JA: Have you checked all the fuses? Do you have a wiring diagram?
Customer: No wiring diagram. I haven't had the chance to find one. As for the fuses, I'll check it this afternoon.
JA: What is the model/year of your Saab?
Customer: 2000 9-5
JA: Are you fixing your 9-5 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes, however this is my first time fixing a Saab. I have checked the harness in the engine compartment and verified the complaint
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: I checked the codes, the car apparently went on limp mode. The car was brought to my shop with a tow truck. I turned the car on and it runs fine, however this is prone to happen again.

Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you with your question.

Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

Check all fuses, need a scan tool to check for codes in the engine, tcm, and abs module. Make sure the scan tool will communicate with these modules.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Those are all the codes that came up in the scanner
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

Have you checked for abs codes?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
there were none
All I have in the dash is the CEL and thof yellow triangle
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

I have seen problems with the wiring harness and the modules cause these codes. You will need to check the can bus wire between the tcm, ecm, and abs module. Make sure you do not have an open in the computer data line.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Can you provide pictures or images to help me get to these wires?
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

Yes. I can email you the wiring diagram.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
How many diagrams will you be providing? Can you show me the location of these harnesses?
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

I have a diagram of the computer data lines. These wires are in the engine and trans harness.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Right, but will you be providing the location to these harnesses? Engine compartment, inside the car...?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Are the codes related to one another?
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

I cannot find the p1701 in the service manual are you sure about that number?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
It read something about a sensor for the transmission fluid.
Expert:  Dan replied 8 months ago.

Ok I will open this up to other experts as I do not have access to this dtc.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Thank you. I will agree to the diagram if it shows or if you can provide the location to the harness.

Thanks for choosing Just Answer . I'm Wolfgang here to help!!

I am confident we can resolve your problem together. Please understand that I don't know your skill level. In most cases when you have a problem with the way the vehicle performs, specialized tooling is required to acquire computer data/information or engine testing results. We didn’t build these complicated vehicles; we just diagnose and fix them. Also understand that I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so it may take a few replies to get to satisfactory results.

Note there may be an issue where the complexity of the issue will require a Premium Service. This service will be an addition to the normal question cost. Usually it does not come down to this but keep in mind!!

I am also going to direct you with the fastest, easiest and most common things to check first. Please be patient and permit me to do what I do best. I also try to give all of the information you may need, expecting a “positive rating” in return. I will also continue assisting you after you have rated me, if necessary. If there is any reason I cannot get a positive rating, please let me know why “in advance”, so I can go another direction for you. I am sorry you’re having this problem; I’ll help you through it.

Below is my first answer or request for more information. If you do not understand it, or you need more information from me, or need me to go in more detail.

i do need some more information please!! vin # is needed
