It seems that you may have a Vacuum Lock on the Transmission. You really need to locate an Authorized Mechanic for this Repair as it is Pretty Extensive.

1991 SAAB 9-3 - key goes in igntiion but will not turn, can't get out of gear

there may be a mechanical back up system to temporaily bypass the electrical circuit. Look in your owner manual. Some have a small hole in the shift console to insert a pin the depress the release for the shift interlock.

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

Someone Please Help

Reading from another site, it seems that this issue is common. There is a way to get it out of P. The problem is due to a fault in the microswitch that is fitted on the Shift-lock solenoid. In order for you to be able to select another gear, disconnect the Shift-lock manually by pressing down the key in the hole next to the selector lever, while at the same time shifting the selector to the neutral position. Will refer you to the site from which I got this information and it also gives info on how to change out the solenoid.

Good Luck
