Question about 1995 Saab 900
This is a very common problem with the Saab ignition / key.
look at your key and see if it is worn down and smooth,, if the key looks worn then take the key to a automotive locksmith ( locksmith ONLY ) and have them read the key and see if they can cut you a new key to factory spec's. if the key looks pretty good then there is a chance that the ignition switch has a bad spring/stuck wafer inside - try and drip a small amount of ( Teflon based or silicone based ) lubrication down inside the lock and cycle the key in and out a few times and then drip a few more drops of lube inside and then cycle key in and out again,, then try and turn. ( do not use to much lube -- you are not trying to drown the ignition out,, a small amount goes a long way ).
also while you have the lube out -- spray some in all the door and truck locks to make sure they stay functioning well into the future.
if you happen to have a spare key that might have cleaner cuts on it -- use that one to test the ignition,, also try and flip the key back and forth as you try to get the ignition to turn.
if this does not free it up then there is a chance that one of the wafers is split and the ignition switch will need to be rebuilt or just replaced,, a automotive locksmith will be able to do this way cheaper than the dealer.
