You will have to start by removing the centre consel and look at the linkage or cables to see if any thing is jamed up

SOURCE: 5 speed manual transmission. reverse will not engage

I had the same problem. A spring in the gear change selector had broken making it impossible to get into reverse and very difficult into first to fifth. Simple repair. Might be similar to your problem

My 93 saab 900s only has third and fourth gears.


I know exactly what happened. Look at the shifter linkage at the transmission. It's under the hood, close to the firewall, directly forward of the shifter knob. There's a black plastic bushing or connecting piece which broke and became separated from a 5-6mm diameter steel rod. You will see it clearly if you look under the hood while someone else moves the shifter knob around from inside the car. Buy a small metal hose clamp (~1 inch diameter or less, coolant hose clamp, same size as the clamp on the coolant reservoir). Slide it over the steel rod, push the rod back into the broken plastic piece firmly, and slide the clamp over the broken plastic part, and tighten it up. You should have all 5 gears back. It happened to my 1997 900SE, and this improvised repair has been holding up fine for two years now. Good Luck.

How much will it cost to fix a problem with going in reverse on a 1996 SAAB 900S?


To be honest, it will probably cost a lot. It just depends what all needs done. I would say your looking at 500-1000 dollars, if it involves taking the transmission out. It would be less if they don't, probably 150-300 dollars. 4 thumbs up is greatly appreciated if you appreciate the reply. Thanks.

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!

No reverse gear, makes clacking noise when going forward


Obvious transmission damage. More than $1000. Possibly get a used transmission for $700-$1400, about $300-$700 To install it. Really unfortunate, my heart goes out to ya.

And when they replace the tranny, have them fix the reverse interlock to prevent this in the future...

Speedometer is no longer working


I'm not sure this will fix it, but it's the "obvious" solution if it's real simple. Is there a button above the radio that says "black panel" ? If so press it and the lights would come back on. If that's not it, then it's probably a blown fuse. Open the fuse box (see owner's manual for location on your model and year) and look at the fuses to see if any are discolored or broken.

I just bought this 1994 saab 900s and i cannot find which is first second thrird etc and reverese help me please


The shift pattern is standard 5 speed H: 1st is all the way up to the left, 2nd straight back and down from that, 3rd is up and slightly to the right of 1st, 4th is straight back and down from 3rd, 5th is up and all the way over to the right. Reverse has a reverse lock out collar under the shift knob that you grip with one finger on either side of the bottom of the knob and pull up while pulling back and all the way to the right.
