Take the car to Autozone, they will read the codes via OBD II for free. Other parts stores may have the same policy ... call first. My VW dealer charges $40 to pull the codes!! I bought a low-end OBD II reader for $50, as the wife and I both have VWs.
White smoke is usually antifreeze, the most frequent cause of this is head gasket blown or cracked head ... big bucks. Hopefully this is not you. Unless the car had a dramatic overheating incident, for most makes of cars, this should not happen until you have over 100K miles, probably closer to 200K.
White smoke could also be break fluid sucked in from power brake booster. If it's brake fluid, it will smell very bad.
On cold days, when the car first starts, white smoke can just be normal condensation in the tailpipe ... if it happens after the car is warmed up ... it's something else.
Check your coolant overflow tank level ... if it's very low or empty ... put water in (don't bother with antifreeze yet in case you are burning it up in the engine).
Good luck, ..ajm

It is under the battery tray. Here is where it is and how to get to it.
Here is another procedural tutorial on how to remove and replace it.
Assuming that this is an automatic, the NSS is a common problem. A common, cheap and easy ten minute bypass method has been developed to get around the problem or at the least to use to confirm the diagnosis of a failed switch.

A SAAB dealer should be able to print one out for you. BTW that engine is practically identical to the V6 used in a caddy Catera, and Saturn Ion. Those diagrams would be the same, so you might want to search that also.

There are a couple of reasons why you are experiencing these concerns. The following are examples of what can be wrong or malfunctioning with your Saab. First check the idle air control valve. This valve controls the amount of air being distributed to your Intake manifold by bypassing the throttle body. This valve is controlled by the computer, make sure the wiring is ok and connected correctly. If you wish to clean the valve you can but make sure you use a carb cleaner or equivalent and remove all the debris and chemical. Secondly the fuel pump.
The fuel pump is hard to diagnose because it can lead you around other concerns like the ignition system. One way to check the fuel pump is to use a test light on the fuel pump circuit. On the 900se it should be fuse #37(not absolutely positive) while the car is running you can check the fuse. If there is power in the circuit and the engine wants to die out check the wiring for the fuel pump all the way to the tank. If there is no continuity than repair the wire that is damaged there should be continuity on all the wires. If all checks out ok but it keeps failing change the fuel pump. If you find that the fuse blown on the fuel pump circuit check the wiring if it is ok change the pump.
There are many things to check on your saab hopefully you find this helpful.
