Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2001 saab the air conditioner fan causes the service engine light to come on

1 Answer

Could be your alternator is getting weak, An alternator does not necessarily fail suddenly, but can gradually lose it's ability to produce what it should, and when you put the load on it with the A/C the system detects that voltage drop. Hence the light. Any other lights come on?
