Question about 1995 Saab 900
I have a 1995 Saab 900S and the key will not turn in the ignition. The car is in reverse and the key is on the lock position and no matter what we do it will not budge. I've had this happen before and I have unhooked the battery for a minute to reset the computer and it comes out of it but it won't do it this time.. Please Help me!!!
Ignition switch and new key may be the only solution to your problem.
I say this only because one other time in my life I had a simular problem and that is what fixed it.
Although I do have an alternative suggestion that could result in a simular problem but it only will purtains to automatic shifting SAABS. could purtain to standard shifts but I'm not sure.
And that is a cable that detects when your vehicle is in park.
If this cable gets out of ajustment your ignition switch will think the car is not in park thus not moving a lever that is located in the ignition switch allowing it to move to and out of the locked position eficiently.
This could also purtain to standard shifts but because of lack of knowledge on that specific vehicle I"M NOT SURE.
I hope this helps you.

The more you use your key, the more the key will wear down overtime. Eventually (especially with car keys) the key will not match up to your tumblers in the lock, and will intermittently not work, and eventually not turn at all. Do you have a spare? if so use it see if it works, then have a copy made. If you don't, call the dealership, have them make you another key, or call a locksmith.
Now if the key won't come out of the ignition, that's a whole other issue, but it doesn't sound like this is the case. Hope this helps you out, good luck!
