    I would suggest you buy an owners manual, but the convert top switch is usually in the center console, it will show a little symbol that looks like a top

The handbrake must be on.

    If the hand brake trick doesn't fix it, the convertible top computer is seeing a fault and has shut the system down. You'll need someone with a factory tool to talk to the car.

If the top doesnt move it is probably a bad microswitch on windsheild header, It may think one side is still latched. You will need TECH2 diag tool to figure this out

Here the fix the saab convertable has the famous failed ground wire of the convertable top, the line the ground in the converatable itself and yes it fails, here is what you do behind the driver side is the convertable module you must identify the ground (I think it brown but very not sure), ground the convertable control ground wire and you will be functioning in no time dont bother to repair the ground in the top just the control top module and attach it to a good ground where it is mounted

The switch needs to be replaced and it requires some special tools if it's in the steering column. If it's on the floor any shade tree mechanic can do it.

Top lowering problem on 2004 Saab Aero Convertible


I have a 2004 Saab 9-3 Arc convertible that had the same problem. The spring on the hinge assembly for the package shelf latch assembly was broken. The part itself is over $300. If you have someone remove the spring, your top will work again. You'll just have to put up with the top shelf hanging down in your trunk about 1 foot, but you can still manually move it to place things inside like your luggage or golf clubs.

1997 Saab Convertible top is broken, and the rain is coming in!


the rear of the top under the back window is drawn down into place and latched by its own motor that simply pulls or pushes two rods. If the motor stopped moving for whatever reason, simply fold down the back seat, reach your arm through the little access at the top of the boot on the drivers side and pop the rods out of place and latch/unlatch manually. this takes a flashlight and some inspection time to do at first if you dont know what your feeling for.

i have the same problem with my 98 900s

Windows saab 900


there should be a switch right on the master window switch that may be "on" to prevent anyone but the driver to operate windows. is this car a convertable? is the switch between the seats in center console? do you have an owners manual? it may have it in there. i will try to find more info. for you if there is no "lock out".
