SOURCE: The fan on my 2004 SAAB 93 convertible will not shut off.

I would suspect that the cooling fan relay ( in a relay / fuse box under the hood) is stuck. There are 2, a high and low speed relay. Pull one and see if the fan goes off. Once you have identified the culprit, see if there is an identical relay in another location that you can swap into place to verify the problem is fixed.

SOURCE: I have a 2003 Saab

You may already know but in case you are not original owner. There was a recall of Saab 2003 9-3 keys (in 2004 I believe). They replaced keys because of this problem.

SOURCE: saab 9-3 trip computer SID with only partial display, fixable?

TRY THIS: http://www.saab9-5.com/howto/sidrepair.htm
That shows Step by Step info how to do it, and it looks promising, Im going to try that on my 9-5 Trip computer and Im sure the 9-3 has the same since Saab models from 1998 - 2003 have the same common problem, save yourself the money on a refurbished one, I got quoted $300 for a new one, why bother if I can fix it myself, and if I scew it up, then buy a refurb one,

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 was running fine. had battery disconnected & reconnected. Key will not turn in ignition switch. getting a reading that says steering lock malfunction, stop car safely


Hi Doug...

Not currently all up on Saabs...
Many years since I worked on one...

but reading the owners manual (ALL 288 Pages)... has convinced me your configuration is fairly close to the BMW ...
(with which I am FAMILIAR).

Even though you have a "chip" key...
the lock still ought to work manually.

Battery NOT your trouble...
That would definitely give you OTHER problems
(specifically key "NOT RECOGNIZED").

On other cars ... I have experienced a similar issue caused by the steering column holding the lock lever from releasing:
If the wheels are turned against a curb... or hard in any direction... TURN THE WHEEL HARD (just "hard"... as in steering... no Samsonite Gorilla here) in THAT SAME DIRECTION and try to wiggle the key in the lock as you attempt to turn it... then try against that direction... again "HARD".

Failing that... jack up the front of the car until you can see some free-play in the steering wheel... by pushing the front tire back and forth... then try the key.

Hope this helps

have the battery load tested for a dead cell as that may be all the problems. After fitting a new battery reset the CPU with a code reader to off set any new problems

equipped with an SID (Saab Information Display) unit that displays various information about the amount of fuel left, the radio station you're listening to and the key's battery status. It is time to change your key batteries if the key stops working or responds slower than usual. The SID on your car will also say "Replace Key Battery." Saab keys use either a CR 2032 or a CR 1632 battery depending on key type. There are two types of keys. The first generation key has one key and a transponder and the second generation key is a one piece key with a built in transponder.
First Generation Key
  • 1 Loosen the single screw that is located by the key ring. Use the small Phillips screwdriver to remove the screw that is on top of the transponder.
  • 2 Lift the plastic top. Remove the old battery and insert the new CR 2032 battery.
  • 3 Put the transponder back together and tighten the screw using the Phillips screwdriver.
  • 4 Press the alarm five times to re-synchronize the transponder with your car.
  • Second Generation Key
  • 1 Push the plastic catch with the pushpin to open the cover latch. The transponder has a plastic catch that is hard to depress. The pushpin will separate it.
  • 2 Lift the plastic cover. Remove the old battery and replace it with the new CR 1632 battery. Position the battery properly.
  • 3 Put the cover back and press the plastic together.
  • 4 Test the transponder with your car to make sure it is working.

    A warning light showing "steering lock malfunction" came on then disappeared - twice. What's the problem and is the car safe to drive?


    If the SID Unit (or profiler) displays "Steering Lock Malfunction" get to your local dealer promptly. There has been issues with the steering lock module and they are now being replaced by Saab under warranty. The module is located under the steering column and must be replaced depending on the part number on the module itself. See your local dealer to find out if your module needs to be replaced.
