2001 Saab 9-5 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 99700 miles
I have a 2001 9-5 SE wagon which I purchased just a couple weeks back. A few days after purchase I noticed that about 10 seconds after the ignition is turned off a very low/quiet hum would start up from the car's speakers. If you turn the ignition on the hum will stop. Also, if you turn the radio on (with the ignition off) the hum stops. Turning the radio off the hum will start again after 10 seconds.
Ignition ON and/or radio ON = no hum
Ignition OFF and radio OFF = hum
Up until this last week the car had been working fine but then the battery went dead after it sat unused for a couple of days. I recharged the battery and the car is running fine but I suspect the battery going dead has something to do with this hum and it will soon happen again. Appreciate any thoughts or advice on how to diagnose this issue.
have the same problem?
