Not possible to regulate temperature on either left or right-hand side in front? Code 08 shown on ACC display?

Cars affected

All 9-5 MY98-


It is not possible to regulate the temperature on either the left or the right-hand side in the front.

Error code B2295 may be present if the right-hand shaft is broken, and B2495 if the left-hand shaft is broken.

Symptom description

Difficult to regulate the temperature.

Error code B2295

Error code B2495

Note Error code B2409 is not related. It is usually caused by failure of SAAB part number 4869426. As this is controls the recirculate door, poor cooling performance could occur similar to the blend door issue. Also it is not uncommon to have noticable differences in temperature between the left and right side when the freon level is low. Please verify that the blend door shaft is indeed broken.
