SOURCE: Ignition switch on my 1987 Saab 900i

You may need to remove the ignition housing assembly to find out whats wrong inside. There are a series of small gears which connect the ignition barrel to the ignition switch & also operate the reverse gear lock mechanism. You'll need a special 3 pronged tool to remove the assembly - available from SAAB dealers.

SOURCE: Instrument panel's lights out parttially....

The driver speaker cover comes off with Torx and after shining light through windshield, you will see two bulbs on a printed circuit film set apart from each other. You can reach them and twist and pull, clean contacts if bulbs not blown, replacement Sylvania 2721. There is also the reostat/dimmer knob that can be jiggled on dash, lower than the bulbs, each controling each bulb. I am in process of replacing mine with LED lights, which are brighter and come in colors as well. You just have to make sure the LED draws no more than 12 VDC as the alternator output is 14 VDC. Check out superbrightleds.com , there you will look for # 74 bulbs, which is same as 2721...I just came across the site today and thought, although your ????was a while ago, maybe this will give Saab Nation the ability to see at night....LOL
Peace

SOURCE: Pulsar N13 instrument cluster no TRIP or OD

the common faults with most n13 pulsar dash clusters come from the rear circuitry where theey are all running to their respective gauges . heat and time finally get to the circuits and they let go causing a very small crack in the line causing no voltage to the gauge. easy to fix with a soldering iron and lots of patience .. good luck

SOURCE: entire instrument cluster on dash flashes, and trip meter

Sounds like there IS a loose connection. There is a large connector on the back of the speedometer cluster. You'll have to pull the cluster and that's no easy chore. Sometimes the connectors get corroded also.

Before you tear into it, CAREFULLY push the entire cluster forward to make sure it is snapped into place. Push in a couple of spots using the palm of your hand and a soft cloth so you won't scratch the plastic cover.

Good Luck . . . . . . .

Instrument panel went dead


Checked Every fuse in the fuse box (no small task).This includes #4 - Power point Instrument Panel, #14 - Day time running lamps (auto lamps doesn't work nor does auto lock), #27 - ignition switch run feed, #35 - Instrument Cluster, #41 - Instrument Cluster, #42 - Delayed Accessory, #45 - Ignition switch run/start feed, #102 - Door locks body security module, #103 - Ignition switch, #110 - Ignition switch, & #116 - Ignition switch. But I also check all other ones as well, they all register OK. AC panel & radio work. Turn signals work. Mileage does not work, trip computer does. So, basically, everything works except auto head-lights, auto locks, and the dash cluster (no MPH, RPM, mileage display, Fuel, Temp, Tran Temp, and Oil Pressure).

Radio


I just put a new radio in my 92 900s
this is what I did I got a volt meter with an ohm meter in it , I pulled out the radio and the radio cradel pulled the plugs off the back of the cradel, there are 2 major plugs you need 1 is for the power and the other is for the 2 front speakers, I think there is a amp someplace for the rear speakers but I couldn't find it so I just ran 2 new wires to the rear speakers the power plug has a red and I think pinkish colors the other plug is to the 2 front spakers, on the power plug you have a constant hot that is the pinkish wire, the red wire goes on and off with the key and the orange is for the power ant and I think the white is for the dimmer lites for the radio, hope this helps If you want you can email me at delflyzero@hotmail.com
