Can i unplug the anti theft system in my 1992 saab and my car still start and run?


No you can't. You can bypass a key or module, But the ECM still needs a signal to start and run the car.

Need to reset the anti-theft system


I don't know your vehicle but each vehicle with an anti-theft is different. Some you have to put the door key into the drivers door and turn. Some you need to put the key in the front passenger door and turn. Some you put the key in the ignition. Try each one until it is reset.

When I switch on the radio?cd player in my Saab 900 the screen says "Code 1". What do I do to fix this ?


could be the anti-theft device in the radio. it requires you to put the 4 digit code in to "unlock" the radio for use. This number should have been given to you by the seller -otherwise can be obtained by a previous SAAB dealer. This can happen when the battery is disconnected for a period of time

Replaced ignition switch in 1999 chevy cavaliar rs, anti-theft light comes on and stays on and won't allow car to start and remain on or run


You have to do a relearn procedure on the anti-theft system:

Attempt to start the vehicle. Leave the ignition on until the THEFT SYSTEM indicator turns off (about 10 minutes). Turn the ignition switch off. Leave the ignition switch off with key in for about 10 minutes. Attempt to start vehicle.

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!

I have the same problem and my excellent Saab car mechanic told me to pull the switch and bring it to him so we can get the exact part number. That may be your problem. My problem is getting the part out of my car (has manual transmission).

Yes, it sounds like anti theft. Have you tried one of your other keys? They are coded to the the car and the ECU recognizes whether you are using a correctly coded key. If you just had the key cut, it is suspect. Start there.

Key wont come out of the ignition


put the car in reverse and then pull the key out.
the old cars had an ignition lock that was an anti theft help that required it to be in reverse to get it out.
