Saab 9-5 (9600) Frequently Asked Questions 1999 - 2009

Engine Code P1260 - P1251

Question: On my 99 9-5 V6 I have a code that reads fuel air flow metering. Also, it starts a bit hard when starting it when cold, no problems when the car is warmed up. Also, when you start it from cold, the RPM's go up initially and then come back down. I have cleaned he air mass sensor, throttle body and changed the fuel pump and it didn't fix problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated? I have 2 codes, they are P1260 and P1251.

Answer Both Codes are related to the throttle body. See the faqs on resetting the throttle body. That may work or you might have to replace the throttle body
