Question about 1997 Saab 900
I have a 97 SAAB 900 SE convertible and this problem just started today. This car has an automatic transmission. You can start the car and as soon as you put the brake on the car dies and all the warning lights come on. I have tried to rev up the engine while putting on the brake thinking it's an idle thing but doesn't seem to make a difference. Please help as I cannot drive my car.
1. Remove the battery.
2. Remove the clutch cable end from the clutch arm end at the wire stop.
3. Slide out the rubber doughnut from the gearbox housing which holds the clutch cable
4. Move the distribution box nut and the alarm pin attached to it (some modules)
5. Disconnect the clutch cable holder from the fender and the data link holder.
6. Remove the drivers lower panel below the steering wheel and remove the air duct as well as the knee shield.
7. Slide out the fuse box holder and ICE Box (should be a black box with many wires going to it). You can remove the instrument cluster at this point but you can also do this without removing the cluster with a little patience
8. Move the pedal spring to one side and remove the eye catch for the cable.
9. Remove the clutch cable by pulling it out from the engine compartment
10. Reinstall in the reverse. Saab actually came out with a bulletin which Needed one to install two washers at the back of the new cable instead of one. The factory cable comes with one but you can remove the 2nd washer off the old cable and install it on the new cable so two exist. This helps take up excessive pedal slack.

The 3M corporation makes a waterproofing spray that works very well for most materials. It takes 24 hours for each coat to dry and I recommend at least 3 coats initially. The top MUST be completely dry and vehicle MUST be parked in a garage to apply and allowed to dry between coats - a carport is too moist and the product will not stick well, and you'll need to put a heater in the garage to keep things warm and dry - a small electric heater will do if you throw towels along the door edges to seal up the drafts. I have used this product several times - the dry warm is crucial to your success !!
Most major retailers, like Wal - mart and K-mart have this in their sporting goods / camping section, or you can go to Big 5 or another sporting goods store .
Hope this helps!!
