Hi had same problem last Friday you can put a fuse in (30 amp) for gearbox and it will start when you turn key but you will not be able to select a gear I'm 100% sure it's the sensonic activator box you can pick one up for about £150-200 second hand.

I have a 1997 Saab se turbo 2.0 the check gearbox light comes on then a week or so later will go out any help would be great thanks keith


Check engine and check gearbox on an automatic...neutral safety switch is going out. First couple starts like that and it seems like it's in limp home mode...it is. A few more starts and it will reset itself. Mine did so reliably at the 5th restart until I changed it.

Get a used on if you can, they are not really rebuildable reliably. Pain to change, it's under the battery tray and miserable to get to.

My 97 Honda Civic runs good and up until now, no problems, but when I turn on the key to start it, nothing happens. Have new battery, fully charged, lights on dash do not go off when I turn key to start. ...


Bypass the clutch switch. If the car starts then replace the switch.
If this will not work, then you need to troubleshoot the starter, from the fuse up to solenoid. Might be anything from a bad fuse, bad relay, bad solenoid, corroded starter copper contacts, or a bad starter. Hope this will help.

Nothing happens when key is turned and clutch is down, no clicking, no lights, battery is fully charged and terminals are tight. 1994 eagle talon fwd 5 speed 1.8L


Sounds to me like the ignition module went out. I would test the ignition module, then I would test the clutch safety switch. If these test out fine I would test the starter and replace it if it is suspected to be bad.

No lights really seems like the battery might be dead, or a fuse is blown. Check the main and alt. fuses.

1997 saab 4 cyl non turo give check gearbox light


Take it back to the Dealer........Their Problem not yours.
It is possible that a plug was removed during the service and at some stage the ignition was switched on before the plug was reconnected , this would cause a check light and the computer would store this until the light was reset.
Hope this helps.

1980 Tr7 ignition problem


With the little information you have provided and me not being familiar with your vehicle I can say that the battery connections could be loose or corroded. Battery not fully charged, not engaged in park or clutch pedal not completely depressed. Starter motor pinion jammed in flywheel ring gear. Starter solenoid faulty, starter motor faulty, ignition switch faulty.

Saab 900SE 2.0T sensonic clutch / gear problem


It's possible that your clutch needs bled and/or have the fluid level checked in the clutch reservoir. The only other thing I can think of that would cause the problem that you're explaining would be that perhaps your throw-out bearing is starting to slip or maybe your pedal isn't auto-adjusting properly. Not too much more that could be causing the problem you described. Hope this helps and have a great day!

1985 saab wont start the key will not even turn


If the key won't turn it sounds like a problem with the reverse gear locking device. You'll need to remove the gearlever/ignition housing and replace or reset the 3 gears inside. If the ignition barrel is faulty you'll still need to remove the assembly to get it out.
