Re: 96' saab safety neutral switch
It is under the battery tray. Here is where it is and how to get to it. Here is another procedural tutorial on how to remove and replace it. Assuming that this is an automatic, the NSS is a common problem. A common, cheap and easy ten minute bypass method has been developed to get around the problem or at the least to use to confirm the diagnosis of a failed switch.

Honestly I work on so many different vehicles and dont know specific location. It is only one of 3 locations. I assume the transmission is automatic so that rules out the nuetral safety switch on the pedal assembly. So that leaves automatic, which can be located on the parking pawl portion of the transmission. It is built into the selector switch that tells you what gear you are in. Or the nuetral start safety switch can be located on the shifter inside the car. Hope this helps.
The park/neutral position switch prevents the car from being started
when the transmission is in any gear other than Park or Neutral.. When
the transmission is in Reverse (with the engine running), the switch
completes the back-up light circuit, illuminating the back-up lights.
Fig. 1: After removing the console, you can access the
park/neutral position switch.
The back-up light switch is incorporated into the neutral/park safety
switch. The neutral safety switch on 1988-94 models is mounted in the
Neutral Start/Back-Up Switch The procedure is for switches that are mounted on the
transmission only. This adjustment is performed with the switch
removed from the vehicle. Neutral position tool J 41364-A or its
equivalent is required for this procedure.
Position tool J 41364-A or its equivalent onto the park/neutral
switch. make sure that the slots on the switch are lined up with the
lower tabs on the tool.
Rotate the tool until the upper locator pin on the tool is lined
with the slot on the top of the switch.
I'm not sure what you mean by "neutral safety switch". I have the shop manual for this car (I also have a 2001) and there is nothing listed under "neutral" or "safety" or "switch" in the index that looks like it.
