SRS light blinking then staying on?
A flashing/steady-on SRS light indicates a problem with the SR system. Because the system contains an explosive, it is best serviced by a Saab trained and certified tech; you can be seriously hurt working on it yourself. SRS system problems can be diagnosed and fixed, and the light reset, by the dealer or trained workshop tech.
Pulling the bulb from the warning lights on the panel treats the symptom, without curing the cause - you've still got whatever fault triggered it in the first place! Definitely not recommended for a safety feature. (You wouldn't just pull the bulb if your ABS light stayed on, would you? Wouldn't you want to know why?)
The best source of info on this car is the "Bentley Bible" aka the Saab 900 Official Service Manual, costs about $40 from Amazon!
