SOURCE: 96' saab safety neutral switch
It is under the battery tray. Here is where it is and how to get to it.
Here is another procedural tutorial on how to remove and replace it.
Assuming that this is an automatic, the NSS is a common problem. A common, cheap and easy ten minute bypass method has been developed to get around the problem or at the least to use to confirm the diagnosis of a failed switch.

SOURCE: what wires do I need
The wires on the Transmission Range Sensor that control the ability to crank the starter are the BLACK/GREEN wire at Pin 6 and the wire at Pin 10 which is either BLACK/GREEN or BLACK WHITE depending on your model. (build - date and transmission type)
With all that said, I think it only fair to warn you that bypassing these wires will set codes in your Engine Control Module. It is not going to like it if there is power at pin 10 with the transmission in reverse or any of the forward gears. This may also cause your transmission to not shift properly because the ECM will not know for sure what gear you are in.
