Engine light staying on

We had a new fan put on our 1997 Saab 900 and about 2 hours after we got it back the engine light came on and has stayed on. No gauges are off and the car is running fine,could it be from the new fan?

They may have disconnected a componet to change the fan, and that may be the problem, I would return and complain that the light was never on before and could they please check to see if anything was left disconnected. I saw this allot as a dealer tech, we never charged the customer to recheck our work.

How do the obd 2 clear the check engine light on a 1995 Saab


  • A 1995 Saab 900 still used the ISO 9141 not OBD II so an OBD II will serve no purpose to your vehicle. Saab 900 did not use OBD II until 1996. If you want the check engine light to go away on this vehicle you have to fix the problem and then the battery disconnected for a couple minutes and the light should stay away if all is OK.

  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

The switch needs to be replaced and it requires some special tools if it's in the steering column. If it's on the floor any shade tree mechanic can do it.

Saab 1997 900 - car suddenly shuts off while driving


I have been trying to figure out the same on my 95' Saab 900 V6 . I am a Mechanic and this thing has been a real Pickle if you know what I mean/ I pulled the ignition switch and the contacts on the plug were corroded and suspect that I am not getting a good enough contact inside the unit . (The reason why I have not suspected this is because it was replaced in 03' with a new one, but the way in it mounted vertically has got to be a reason for corrosion.)Might have been due to the sunroof been left open in the rain. So I would suggest replacing the IGNITION SWTICH with a new one, or used (with warranty i.e. Ebay) one if possible. Also put some Electrical tape on the new unti so it will never get any moisture inside>
