I assume you've checked the battery and it's connections. Next I would look for a fuse or fuse link that feeds the ignition switch. If that is okay, it points to the ignition switch and it's wiring. I hope this steers you in the right direction.

SOURCE: The Key won't turn in the ignition

The more you use your key, the more the key will wear down overtime. Eventually (especially with car keys) the key will not match up to your tumblers in the lock, and will intermittently not work, and eventually not turn at all. Do you have a spare? if so use it see if it works, then have a copy made. If you don't, call the dealership, have them make you another key, or call a locksmith.

Now if the key won't come out of the ignition, that's a whole other issue, but it doesn't sound like this is the case. Hope this helps you out, good luck!

SOURCE: Radio code for 1997 saab 900s

I'm afraid if you don't have the code, you will have to take it to a local dealer or specialist radio store to have it re-coded.

Fortunately, it's not expensive.

SOURCE: 1997 saab 900S airbag worning light on

There are lots of sensors in your car that tell the Airbag Module that you are in the seat.
The seatbelts also have sensors in them and are known for going bad. Run down to your local autozone and they will have something to hook up to it to find the code that the Airbag set.That will lead you in the dirrection you need to look in. (Important) YOUR AIRBAG WILL NOT DEPLOY WHILE THE LIGHT IS ON IF YOU ARE IN A ACCIDENT

SOURCE: where is the thermostat in a 900s oh. 97 saab 900S

Oil change interval has nothing to do with operating temperature. If your coolant is full, feel the upper radiator hose, when the vehicle is up to temp. if cool , thermostat is back from that hose,

Look for air bleeds, and read owners manual, some cars have coolant bleeds. Also, heater on high when filling coolant or risk bubbles...

My thought is that your fans may not be kicking in. They should cycle on and keep temp low enough. test them.

Why wont it cxrank


This may be related to the antitheft system The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY? This is a common problem worth looking into. http://www.diy-gm-security.com/

Engine light doesnt come on when key is turned on,cranks but will not start.no fire no fuel


Take to car to a diagnostic center, and they will attach a diagnostic machine to the car to see if it's the onboard-computer that's malfunctioning.

If the fuses are all OK, and the starter cranks the engine, but there's no firing, the diagnostic system will tell the tech what it is, there are various reasons there's no firing when the engine cranks,

Someone may say check the disable switch on the transmission, but if that's broken, the starter will not crank the engine.

Starting problems


faulty crank position sensor is likely. No pulse from sensor to ECU, no activation of fuel pump, no fuel no start. The insulation in the inductive coil of the sensor breaks , and the sensor fails with age.

Car wont start


I finally found a mechanic who found 3 broken wires. The diagnostic machine now reads the car and no faults were found. He changed the fuel pump and the car now cranks but doesnt fire up. I got fed up with the mechanic scratching his heading after 3 weeks sat in his garage so i got the car back home. I changed the battery cos the old one was completely knackered. I need to get this started asap... any suggestions? its a 1.9 diesel

1996 saab 900s starts but turns off


Failing crank position sensor (CPS) is possible. If the ECU does not get a constant pulse from the CPS the fuel pump does not switch on, so no start due to no gas. if it is failing, the pump may activate intermittently.

I have an automatic saab 900s. when starting once you have turned the key and it starts and go to release it it turns off. i have to hold it in the on postion. is this a problem with the ignition switch


There is a lock in the ignition lock cylinder that holds the key in the run position after going to START. The locking mechanism is made of lead which will wear after while creating these problems because of the softness of the metal, but a replacement should last you as long as the original.

97 Saab 900s. my dash gauge lights and gauges would flicker and not work randomly for a while and now they dont work at all. The other lights on the dash work fine and the car works fine. just the gas...


Try to tightin up the light bulb. be aware the only way to do this is to remove the hole dash. if you do not know how to do this i would recamend you take it to a shop are ask me to go through step by step directions.

What bulbs are in my dash,95 saab 900s,ebay has led"s but they are numbered t3 t4 t5 ,the t4 apears an exact match,but how can i be sure?


you could go to a wrecker and have a look at a dash already removed from a vehicle or call a dealer and try and find out. otherwise just remove the dash and have a look


i would steer clear of leds, ive never seen any where the light emitted looked good. if you replace one bulb with leds you've go to do them all. but it just doesnt look any good on older cars in my opinion

1997 Saab 900S Ignition Switch Staying Engaged


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.
