Question about 1992 Saab 900
Hi, recently replaced the starter in my 92 saab 9002 convertable and drove it for about 15 min to check it out. Engine started to smell a mix of hot and electrical. Parked it back at home went to start it later to check it out would not start now the shifter only goes between 2nd and 4th gear it is as if it is jammed will not enter reverse either. Could this be a problem with the gear box, the clutch itself or what. Was having no problems shifting before the starter replacement. Could the non starting issue be due to the clutch not engaging enough to start the vehicle or am I way off base ???? This is an awsome car and I am pretty sad about the situation please help if you can :(
I would be checking the starter motor isnt engaged all the time.Remove the starter and check for damage or signs of heat / Burning.
Once you have the starter out check the gears and see if they have freed up any.Let me know how you get on.

gonna have to go back and study her. sounds like a short circuit involving the shifter linkage which is like an aircraft cable or more simply, ten speed brake cable. I say aircraft cable because saabs are more or less a fuselage without the wings, a good car. hang on to her. sounds like the problem started before you even touched her. study saab stuff on the net, recalls , and the like, sounds like some mechanical stuff got in the way of some electrical stuff, probably just from getting old, study it and see how the tranny shifts with a friend, or did , use a strong flashlight or droplight, youll figure it out if you have patience
