Re: SAAB 2002 93 automatic gear stuck
You have to push your shift override button? Your cable that runs from your ignition/steering column to your shift knob could be worn and therefore loose not allowing the car the be shifted out of park (as if your key weren't in the ignition). Hope this helps

Check engine and check gearbox on an automatic...neutral safety switch is going out. First couple starts like that and it seems like it's in limp home mode...it is. A few more starts and it will reset itself. Mine did so reliably at the 5th restart until I changed it.
Get a used on if you can, they are not really rebuildable reliably. Pain to change, it's under the battery tray and miserable to get to.
You have a bad throttle position sensor which is mounted on the throttle body. Pretty easy to replace, just note the position of the old one. It's secured by two small bolts. The part is usually special order and costs about $110.
If you tolk about camshaft position sensor-YES.Located on a back side of the engine , next to the gear box.Have metal cover .Use diagnostic equipment to find the problem or code reader.I also had the same problem in my SAAB 95.In 6 monts time I have change two sensors.Made in China
I think your brake shift interlock solenoid is not releasing the Park position when you apply the brake.
Check for a blown fuse first. see owner manual for location of fuse.
Also, check owner manual for how to manually bypass the interlock.
When you step on the brake pedal, it activates a solenoid that unlocks the shift linkage cable so it will move. It is a safety feature to ensure you have you foot on the brake and not the gas, as you shift out of park.
You may need to remove the ignition housing assembly to find out whats wrong inside. There are a series of small gears which connect the ignition barrel to the ignition switch & also operate the reverse gear lock mechanism. You'll need a special 3 pronged tool to remove the assembly - available from SAAB dealers.
