SaabBrains offers select used parts for Classic Saab 900 and
Saab 9000, particularly relays, ECUs and similar electronics.
These are costly if bought new, and aftermarket substitutes are
of uncertain quality.
I provide good used, original parts at an attractive price,
with quick shipping.
This venture began while looking for parts for my own 900T.
I noticed the high cost of parts, and often found used originals
to be quite suitable. While trolling junk yards it occurred to
me that other Saab drivers could benefit from what I find but
cannot use myself.
This is a new web site, and I'm shaking out the kinks. Its
a simple, low budget site, without pizzazz and high prices.
I hope you find it easy to use.
The first categories listed are
Switches and a few small Control Units.
Following will be fuel injection ECUs and brake control units. Much will depend on what people ask
for, and what I can locate.
I drive a single owner 1986 900 Turbo, 300k miles, picked
up in Sweden (the Autobahn was a blast!). I've been its principal
mechanic for the past 15 years. I'm not a trained mechanic and
don't pretend to be anything other than a practiced DIYer with
a well thumbed Bentley.
After reading David Blume's book
Alcohol Can Be a Gas,
I began to wonder what it would take to convert a Classic Saab 900T to run on straight ethanol.
The Ethanol Project begins with research.
My parts are primarily harvested from wrecking yards or from
private sources. I won't offer a part that seems doubtful to
me in appearance or due to its source. I prefer cars that were
known to be in good running condition. I prefer to see the car
I take parts from. I also like crashed cars (minor side or rear
impact) for some parts, because it suggests the vehicle was roadworthy.
I dislike front end collisions for brake components - call me
If a part fits my own car, I'll often road test it. Some of
the simpler relays I'll test with simple bench tests. Each detailed
page notes the extent of testing.
I usually cannot promise that a part is good. However I do
warrant that you won't pay for a part that fails you. See the
