Crankshaft Position Sensor Replacement Guide The following is the procedure I developed to change the Crankshaft Position Sensor (CPS ) on my 1996 Saab 900S 2.3 L NA. It is a very simple part to replace, and is also a cheap part, at $42 from the dealer I bought it from (who would've thought a dealer would have a part for a good price, let alone have the part I wanted at all Where is the camshaft sensor Saab 900se 97 , - icon_biggrin.gif). In case you were wondering, here is how I confirmed the CPS was not working correctly. The car would not start sometimes on hot days after short trips, it would turn off if it got too hot while driving (which was scary), I could hear the fuel pump working, I checked the started for the correct charge (it was fine as I thought), I already did the Neutral Safety Switch bypass as a precaution.
Here are the steps:
1) Make sure your engine bay is cool because you will be bumping into and touching the engine block and surrounding parts during this installation.
2) Locate the CPS. It is directly across from the radiator fan, about 8 inches down from the top of the fan. I can post pictures later tonight.
3) Using the largest torx screwdriver fitting that was supplied with the car, remove the single torx screw at the upper right of the CPS.
4) Now, before you remove the CPS, trace the wire it is connected to around the right side of the engine, and up under where the plenum/TB cover would reside. I have a custom intake so I did not have to remove anything to see this connection. There is a white plug with a red plastic box that penetrates the white plug perpendicularly. Simply pull the red box away from the large white connection to allow the CPS connection and wire to fall free.
5) Now, you can either patiently route the connection you just took apart back around the engine to get the old CPS out of there, or you can take as little time as I did and simply cut the wire in half and pull the ends out.
6) The CPS should now pull right out.
7) Quickly place the new CPS into the slot in the engine block, as to avoid any debris getting in there. MAKE SURE THE OLD O-RING COMES OFF AND THE NEW O-RING GOES ON the shaft of the new CPS before pushing the part in.
8) Retorx the screw.
9) Pull the end connection through all of the tubing and parts in your way. Find the metal spring-formed arch that holds the CPS wire from jingling about and with one hand, pry it open while you push the wire under the clip to secure it. This step can be tricky, but is very important to ensure the wire does not vibrate and prematurely malfunction.
10) Do the opposite of step 4

Where is 97 saab fuel pump 2dr coupe

In the tank. On some, like the 97 900se, the hole and cover in the trunk for accessing the pump do not line up with the hole and float/pump assembly unit in the tank itself and the tank has to be dropped to get to it. A bit of a design oversight there...

Tune to the first and lowest station on the band that you want and push and hold button number one (in the row of buttons immediately below the station display) until the number shows on the display and flashes. Pre-set one is now that station. Repeat, using button two for the next, and so on, until you have all the stations you want programmed.
