Question about 1996 Saab 900

2 Answers

I have a '96 SAAB 900 SE Turbo auto-trans that is not starting. The engine turns over at a normal speed but it doesn't start up. I have an ODB2 reader and no codes are pulling up. The dash shows a Check Gearbox light.

    How do I go about checking fuel pressure?

  • Michael Anderson Aug 05, 2009

    OK - new info: Though I can try starting the car and hear it crank (but never fires) until the battery is run low, It will start when jump-starting from another vehicle. I've had the battery tested and it's fine, other than being low charged due to trying to start the car. -would the be an alternator issue or ??

    Problem turned out to be a battery problem. though it was charged and volts were good amps were not enough for it to fully start.

My 96 900se turbo auto trans was doing the same thing. whats most likely is that the shifter cable is not fully letting the car grab the park gear, which won't let it turn on. or it may be the neutral safety swtich that needs a good cleaning or replacement. I hope this helps, in my case it was the shifter cable.

I would check for fuel pressure first. If the fuel pump is out, it will not throw a code to the computer.

I need an engine diagram for a 1995 saab 900 se V6


A SAAB dealer should be able to print one out for you. BTW that engine is practically identical to the V6 used in a caddy Catera, and Saturn Ion. Those diagrams would be the same, so you might want to search that also.

Motor and trans mount replacements


The part number for the trans mount is the same for the 2, 2.3 and 2.5 liter engines. It is 4356184. It is $51.00 for the aftermarket Febi/Bilstein and $125.52 for the OEM Saab part. The 2.3 liter mount you want to use will work, but only if it came off an auto trans. car. Additional infor available on SaabSite: http://www.thesaabsite.com/900new/NG900mounts.htm
