    why not give him an answer to his question instead of telling him he's wrong... THEN how can he open the hood?

  • John Schreiber Apr 13, 2011

    Semantics.
    His question should have been: My battery is dead, and I can't unlock my doors. I also do not have a key to unlock the door. It is easier to open the door with a slim than to open the hood without using the original mechanism. Besides the answer was posted 2 years ago.

There are two ways to open the hood:

there is a pull lever on the door side of the steering wheel, under the dash, it pulls toward you to release the hood;

if the release cable is broken, you need to make a specially shaped wire tool to release the hood locking pin through the front grille. It needs to be about 1/8 dia wire,and about 16-18 inches long, with a handle bent in one end and to have a 3/4 inch bend up at the other end, bent back toward the handle end at 15 degrees.

Insert thru the grille, hook the rear of the hood lock, and pull the latch toward driver side until hood releases.

Much easier said than done!

How do i get my key out of a 1996 saab 900


As part of the safety/theft detterent system, most SAABs will only allow key removal when YOU PUT THE (manual) TRANSMISSION IN REVERSE. Not sure how it would work with an automatic transmission. If yours is a manual transmission, give that a try. I had a 1992 SAAB 900S convertible. Ran like a raped ape but the A/C gave out on us. Miss the old girl though.

Hope this helps!
