Chances are the clutch cable is damaged. Follow the clutch cable back to the firewall, you are going to have to remove the fuse box that sits on the driver side. You should be able to see the clutch cable insulation. If there is any damage to the insulation replace the cable. This cable has an automatic tension system for proper clutch pedal clearance. On my 97 900se I replaced the clutch after having the same symptoms. It was only after I read on another forum to check the clutch cable that i saw the damage and original problem. Also look at the shift linkage on the transmission side. Saab or GM made a really bad choice of fabricating the shift linkage out of plastic. Check that for damage as well.

Pull up the leather shifter boot (it's attached with an elastic cord around the base, so just tug upward on it)

look for a little white plastic extension attached to the shifter at the base. This is what locks the car into reverse once the key is removed.

From use/wear, this will sometimes rotate and drop down on the shaft and prevent the sifter from going in any gear.

Ok, here is what you do, slide under vehicle, locate shift lever on side of transmission rotate counter-clockwise two clicks, pop shifter on, hop back inside turn key on depress brake pedal and check shifter, if it falls off again replace cable assembly they do not sell individual bushings, and get cable from dealer.

The check gearbox light comes on when you shift to drive (automatic transmission). The acceleration is very slow unless you shift it to 1 or 2. Once you get going you can put in drive and it will...


You need a new neutral safety switch. The car does not know what gear it is in so it goes into safe mode and sets off in third gear. There about £150 new but i got one from the scrap yard for a fiver. There is a guide on one website that shows you how recondition the switch but can't remember which one.

Reverse not working in my 1995 saab a week after the clutch was


Standard tranny's are pretty simple. Sounds like some of the linkage came unconnected. Take it back to whoever replaced the clutch and have them repair the problem. They apparently didn't put it back together right. You have to disconnect the linkage to pull the transmission to replace the clutch.

Transmission shifting into nuetral


Check your fluid level. If the fluid level gets low, the pump basically pumps the pan dry in which the trans. valve body has no fluid to direct to keep in engaged in gear. Check your fluid level while running at operating temp. in nuetral. If this checks out ok, the trans. clutches are worn out to the point of the trans. no longer has the ability to stay engaged.
