Question about 2002 Saab 9-5
Steering lock malfunction sign shows up on my screen with a picture of a steering wheel and a lock on it appears as well. they want a 110.00 just to tell me what is wrong. sometimes it will not start or will not go in gear. what could this be?

Bad starting is rarely caused by a battery that turns the engine over quickly and if it turns over quickly it aint gonna be the starter.....look to something like plugs/leads...fuel,pump/filter.even a dirty air filter will cause starting problems.start with the least expensive things that you can do and work upwards.....to the things you cant.the clicking sound is almost certainly the starter but it will click if the battery is on its last legs.so i would start with a new battery.........

A P0300 diagnostic code indicates a "random" or "multiple" misfire.
Unfortunately, P0300 doesn't tell you specifically which cylinders are mis-firing, nor why (code P0301 would indicate cylinder #1; P0302 would indicate cylinder # 2 etc). This means there could be an issue with any number of components/circuits relating to the ignition/combustion circuits.
I would recommend you check for the following:
Sometimes the underlying cause of a random misfire is often a lean fuel condition, which may be due to a vacuum leak in the intake manifold, unmetered air getting past the airflow sensor, or even an EGR valve which is stuck open.
Hope this helps...
