Fuses and relays Saab 9-3 (YS3F; 2002 - 2012)

Saab 9-3 is a mid-size car produced from 1998 to 2014. A distinctive feature is the use of turbocharged engines in most production cars and positioning in the premium segment compared to the platform "donor". The second generation shared the platform with the Opel Vectra and Cadillac BLS. In this article we will understand in detail fuse box diagrams Saab 9-3 (2nd Gen; codename YS3F) 2002, 2003, 2004, 2004, 2005, 2005, 2006, 2006, 2007, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2010, 2011, 2012 model years.

Here you will find the locations and photos of the mounting blocks. Also, we will separately mark the fuses responsible for the cigarette lighter and the fuel pump.
