Your fan resistor has failed an needs to be replaced. Here is a post on how about obtaining the part and replacing it. Seems to be a common problem with the 9-3. ........http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=155286

I'm having the same problem. Can I just pull a fuse? If so, which fuse do I pull and where is it?

Maxi fuse is a big fuse the only one in the fuse panel located at driver side dash compartment, pull out with a quick jerk, they are stiff sometimes. At the top right of fuse panel use needle nose, or in a pinch apply pocket knife point from bottom and pry Lightly in a wiggle type of movement.
