Possible that a commutator brush has dis-lodged from its holder...try measuring resistance to motor.....should be low around 2-5 ohms but not zero and not infinity.....the latter a clue to brush problem...the motor, if brush dis-lodged can be repaired...a matter of dis-mounting it and inspecting brushes then pry on brush with strong needle point to re-mount it....

My saab 900se won't crank


If you get a click or tick sound, then that would suggest to me that your starter motor solenoid is working, but your starter motor itself is stuck or worn out.
Check power to the starter motor when turning the ignition key to the crank position. If it is receiving power, then replace the motor.

You have to put hydraulic fluid (power steering fluid will work too) in the convertible top motor. The motor is in the trunk, on the left hand side, under a panel. Pull the panel off and that is the electric motor for the top. You'll see a reservoir where you put in the fluid. Put in the fluid and you'll be good to go.

Convertible Top Not Working Properly


This is not a low fluid problem, this a contorl motor problem. I had a 1989 Z24 conv. and the same thing happened. I replaced the motor and the top worked just fine.
