There is a lock in the ignition lock cylinder that holds the key in the run position after going to START. The locking mechanism is made of lead which will wear after while creating these problems because of the softness of the metal, but a replacement should last you as long as the original.

SOURCE: Replacing ignition switch on Saab 1996 900s 2.3 I 5 speed

You take all the center console and plastic ducts from between the seats. There are 4 10mm bolts holding the shifter mechanism to the floor. Take these off and do your best to flip the whole housing to where you can access the bottom side. The ignition switch is attached under there. As I recall there are 2 T20 screws holding it on.

SOURCE: Ignition Switch Removal

you'll need to remove the console, as the key switch is between the seats. remove the shift boot cover and undo two console hold down screws (Torx 25) in front of the shift lever; there are two more in the aperture remaining when you take out the rear ashtray. Turn on the ignition key so you can put the shifter into neutral, and slide the console up and out between the seats (squeeze fit between the seat belt connectors) It's much easier if you get a sacrificial key cut, then cut the lobes off it!

with the console out, you'll need to remove the gear shift housing, for which there's a special Saab tool - they are 3 point heads. A six point socket with 3 points filed out might work. rotate the gear shift housing 90 deg to one side, to get at it's bottom, where there are two screws holding its cover in place.

With the cover off, you'll find two screws (T25) one on either side of the switch, holding the switch in place. Remove these and you have the switch. Note connections and alignments for re-assembly.

Hope this helps, if it does please give a "thumbs up"

Thanks

The switch needs to be replaced and it requires some special tools if it's in the steering column. If it's on the floor any shade tree mechanic can do it.

1996 saab 900s starts but turns off


Failing crank position sensor (CPS) is possible. If the ECU does not get a constant pulse from the CPS the fuel pump does not switch on, so no start due to no gas. if it is failing, the pump may activate intermittently.

How do i get my key out of a 1996 saab 900


As part of the safety/theft detterent system, most SAABs will only allow key removal when YOU PUT THE (manual) TRANSMISSION IN REVERSE. Not sure how it would work with an automatic transmission. If yours is a manual transmission, give that a try. I had a 1992 SAAB 900S convertible. Ran like a raped ape but the A/C gave out on us. Miss the old girl though.

Hope this helps!
