Question about 1999 Saab 9-5
Alrite, I have a series of questions...I currently have a 1999 Saab 9-5. I went to work last night and when I was ready to go home, my black lever on the gear won't push up therefore I can't move the car from Park! It's still at work and I have no clue what the problem can be. My mom's friend who was a mechanic suggested that the fuse may have blown, but I checked each fuse and they all seem to be fine. I'm clueless, I don't want to tow the car till I'm sure it's something I can't fix. Someone please help!
Reading from another site, it seems that this issue is common. There is a way to get it out of P. The problem is due to a fault in the microswitch that is fitted on the Shift-lock solenoid. In order for you to be able to select another gear, disconnect the Shift-lock manually by pressing down the key in the hole next to the selector lever, while at the same time shifting the selector to the neutral position. Will refer you to the site from which I got this information and it also gives info on how to change out the solenoid.
