Sobs 1997 900 turbo having trouble with running

Saabs can be prone to floating ground issues in some of the light fixtures. My older one had this happen in particular, when the ground plane in the tail light cluster rusted and isolated the ground on a bunch of lights. It turned into a bypass where brakes, blinkers, emergency, all would make all the lights flash kind of dimly.

You should be able to remove the rear light clusters from inside the trunk. Look and see if there is corrosion, or signs that the ground plane - should look like a large scale printed circuit board, is damaged. Clean it off with a wire brush. if the ground plane is broken, you'll want to either get a replacement base plane, or, if you re-connect the ground, use some heavy wire to solder it back into connection so that it can handle the current for the lights.

I hope this might help!

1995 saab 900 convertible turn signals and brake lights not working

Check your fuses, even fuses not associated with lighting. If all ok it is probably the muti-funtion switch on the steering column, It is the switch that your turn signal lever connects to.

My instrument panel lights come on when first

Check on the front panel where you see fuel consumption, outside temp etc that the botton that says black has not been pushed. If pushed no dash lights will come on and the panel screen for the outside temp etc will also be black. So give it a push and the lights should come back on.

Jack up the car and remove the rear wheels. Remove the Caliper pins/spring by pushing them toward the inside of the caliper with a drift.
Remove the brake pads by sliding them out. Push the caliper pistons back in with a large pair of channel lock pliers or a large C-clamp.

I changed the battery on my 1997 Saab 900. Radio is dead.

turn on the radio and enter the code. If it does not respond, hold the band button down until the screen asks for it. If that does not work, pull the radio and courtesy fuses for 5 minutes and retry.
