    I cannot see how a failed part would then let the engine run normally!!

The "Check Engine" warning comes from the ECM , it has detected a fault - a part failed and the ECM has routed around it to make the engine work sufficiently well for a time. You must read the error code, (any repair shop or parts seller will be able to do that) and the error code will tell you what system is not properly functioning. Use that information to check the parts from that system and identify and replace the failed part.

    The engine runs, but not normally: the ECM is compensating for the failed part (most likely a sensor) enough to keep the engine running. Have the error codes read.

I have a 1996 saab 900S 2.3L with a check engine light obd2 code p0341 camshaft position sensor out of range. I am told this engine does not have a cam position sensor but that saab uses this code for...


I also have a saab 900 s with the 2.3 L. I started throwing the same code. I found out from the Hanes manual that the CMP sensor is integrated into the distributor on this model. Which explains why the distributor costs so much. You might want to check your distributor out and makes sure their is no oil in the cap and that the black electric plug is fit on correctly. If it's okay just watch for rough idle (that's what mine started doing), unfortunately it looks like if your cam position sensor needs to be replaced you have to replace the entire distributor.

Check all battery terminals and 12v power feed connections are clean and tight.
Check all battery chassis and ground connections are also firm and in good order.
Check any in line 'Maxi' fuse connections are firm.
Check for water ingress in any cable loom or bulkhead connector exposed to the water spray.
