Unfortunately you will have to take a car the dealer. There is something wrong with the column integration module. There may be a recall relating to this too.

My 2004 saab 93 key wont turn.the lights come on but the little brakes indicator wont light up on my gear slot but my emergency brake is stuck on and it says steering lock malfunction on my s.id


You can't turn the key due to the steering lock malfunction, you now need to have the systems control module scanned for faults. That is the first step to diagnose and repair this fault. You will need a special scan tool for this, so find a shop that has one that will read this Saab system codes.

Car wont start


I finally found a mechanic who found 3 broken wires. The diagnostic machine now reads the car and no faults were found. He changed the fuel pump and the car now cranks but doesnt fire up. I got fed up with the mechanic scratching his heading after 3 weeks sat in his garage so i got the car back home. I changed the battery cos the old one was completely knackered. I need to get this started asap... any suggestions? its a 1.9 diesel

I also have a 2004 saab 9-3 with the inside blower motor that wont turn off with key out of the car and even when the car is locked,It has manually air con panel. When i disconnet the battery and reconnect...


Hello.

There are two probable causes for this problem.

The first is the fan power relay is sticking in the closed position and drawing power even with the key off. When you disconnect the battery the relay resets itself and you are back to "normal" until you run the cycle over again.

You noted that your SAAB has manual climate controls. It still may be a good idea to check the BCM harness ground connections. BCM is the "Body Control Module". I do not have a wiring diagram available for your car so can offer no additional advice other than to say that millions of dlooars are spent in the USA every year due to dirty or loose ground connections on computer and module harnesses.

All the best.

2004 Saab 93: A/C doesnt turn off, car now wont start


remove the AC relay to shut the AC off all the time. Not sure why it wont start but you may havea security lockout. Fully charge the battery to proceed.

My 2004 saab s3's remote key wont unlock my car


Two possible solutions for you
1- Change the battery in the key fob, if this battery is over a year old then it might be time. If this doesn't work then
2- Take the car into a Saab dealer and have the receiver reprogrammed. They do on occasion get misaligned and end up locking out the remote or remotes depending on how many you have.
Hope this helps.

1995 Saab 900 Same problem with stalls dies no warning


It appears to me to be more of a loose or damaged battery or ground connection, either on the battery, the starter, or a power wire somewhere. Next time you have dim lights, get under the hood and wiggle wires around, to see if you can get them to brighten up. When you do hit the right wire, you'll find the problem.

Key wont turn in ignition


I don't want to over state the obvious, but make sure the transmission is in Park.
Then make sure the wheal is not in a locked position. Turn the wheal, and make sure its in a nutral position. Then try the key.
