It sounds like you are either in "winter" mode, or "failsafe mode". If it's winter mode, you should see the word "winter" somewhere on the display. On my 1998 Saab 900, the winter button is on the console. Pushing it turns the winter mode on and off. If it's in failsafe mode, you're going to need to take it to a GM dealer.

SOURCE: automatic transmission wont catch into any gear

You sould have been moore frequent on your transmission fluid changes, and you shouldn't have taken it to Jiffy Lube either. Your best bet is to drain and fill the trans fluid run it shift gears. Drain and fill again. Do this 3 times. Yeah the transmission fluid is expensive. on the last drain and fill you want to get a bottle of LUBE GUARD from NAPA or who ever sells it. put the whole 10oz bottle in. Shift Rev, 1, 2, 3, D. Neutral Rev D. If that don't work then you have bad seals.

SOURCE: The gear selector will not shift from park i've been told that one of the linkages is broken

The gear shifter has a switch inside of it. The shifter has to be replaced.

SOURCE: Cannot engage transmission from first to second gear

Usually this is a linkage problem, and most often the rubber lined coupling between two rods in the linkage system. This fails as the rubber ages, and when it does you are unable to select some or all gears, and might be stuck in one gear!

Not too difficult to re and re, and part is available from Saab dealer at reasonable cost.

Coupling may be located inside the car, under the console, ahead of the gear lever housing, or on the other side of the firewall

My transmission will sometimes not shift from park to drive. I turn the car off/on and press the brake pedal and it then sometimes shifts. Whats up?


Most cars those years have a brake pedal interlock system. Sorry I'm a chevy mechanic, but our system is the BTSI (or brake transmission shift interlock) solenoid. After the car is started, the brake pedal must be applied to activate a solenoid which unlocks the shift cable to the tranny and allows shifting. We have a number of vehicles with issues of a bad solenoid or its too weak to unlock the cable. I know Ford has a similar system, but I can't tell you in detail how it operates or where it is. Check with a parts store or Ford dealer for more info.
