Pull the battery cables off and let them sit off for about 30secs. If the code comes back on after the battery is disconnected than that means you have a hard code and will have to have the car scanned and reset. There are two kinds of codes, hard and soft, hard codes need to be scanned and reset soft codes are simple issues that by disconnecting the battery the codes will go away.

SOURCE: My brake lights don't work and it's not the fuse. I don't know how long they have been off. I got pulled over and i was told they didn't work

first get a 12-volt tester and test the socket if the sockets are good check the brake light switch on top of the brake pedal itself and check all of the fuses too.

In 1995 they made different systems. If it has OBD, then it should be the conventional 16 pin connector, found underneath the drivers steering wheel area. If its the older type, then it has a 2 pin black connector under the center console area. Hope that helps

SOURCE: I have a 1996 saab 900S 2.3L with a check engine

I also have a saab 900 s with the 2.3 L. I started throwing the same code. I found out from the Hanes manual that the CMP sensor is integrated into the distributor on this model. Which explains why the distributor costs so much. You might want to check your distributor out and makes sure their is no oil in the cap and that the black electric plug is fit on correctly. If it's okay just watch for rough idle (that's what mine started doing), unfortunately it looks like if your cam position sensor needs to be replaced you have to replace the entire distributor.

The check engine light is on my 1995 Saab 900s. I can not find a techician with the correct scanner.How can I turn off the light?


There are three ways to reset a check engine light.

1. Disconnect the battery, wait approximately 30 minutes, reconnect the battery. This resets the cars computer which also reset the check engine light. On newer OBD (on-board diagnostic) compliant vehicles this usually does not work. See step 2.

2. Reset using an OBD II reader. When you hook an OBD II code reader up to your vehicle, you can reset the computer using the code reader.

3. Fixing the problem. Generally the check engine light comes on for a reason. Usually it is emission related (sensors, gas cap) or electrical (faulty wiring). In this case the way to reset the check engine light is to fix the problem

The check engine light comes on my 1995 saab 900s


The check engine light is on because there is a problem with the emissions system. There are many things that can cause this. If the engine is running good and you have not noticed any drop in power or fuel mileage, then there is no rush to get it repaired. However you do need to have the ECU scanned to see what code has been set. Your car more than likely has the older OBD1 system but any technician can access the codes. With this code a trained tech will be able to find the problem. Know that is the engine is not running correctly or especially if it is missing then you need to have this repaired ASAP, or you will damage the O2 Sensor and the Catalytic Converter.
