i would have it converted to a regular 5 speed not very hard to do and parts are reletivley inexpensive used, you will need a clutch pedal assembly and a gearbox out of a 96-01 saab 9-3 with all the clutch lines and then its a matter of changing out a few plugs to trick the comuter, there is a write up on this if you are interested will save you lots of headaches down the road -jeff

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.

dont think you will find one as evan the new haynes books dont have wiring diagrams only block diagrams as with the wiring diagram you can bypass the factory immobiliser.which means less work for the dealer when the immobiliser cuts in for what ever reason

SOURCE: Starter wiring messed up need help

there should be a large battery cable red going to the large terminal of the solenoid, another thin wire going to the flat blade connector which should go to the starter switch, The way to test the wires to find out which one is the ignition switch wire is to get someone to sit in the car and turn the ignition key as if to start it and you can use a simple test light to see which one goes on and off as the ignition switch is turned on and off.
There should be another wire that connects to the same terminal as the battery cable which goes to the altenator, about twice the size as the small wire is. If there are any more wires I am not sure where they will go to.
Hope that works for you

Wear is the fuse for reverse lights on a 1996 saab 900se auto ?

There isn't one. The switch is on the transmission. Usually close to the shift cable. I don't work to much on Saab's so I can't tell you the exact location.

Buy yourself a factory wiring book

Not a Haynes or other manual
They will be too generic & not your

Have to try Helm.Com for gm,ford,chry & others

The internet will have your manufactures site,

May have to buy a CD

Won't be cheap, but good info that will help you, won't be

You can go to a local auto shop & have them print just
the parts you need, of the under seat wiring

Help! Changed battery but still don't work for a long time

you probably have a short in the amplifier under the driver's seat. I had the same problem. Bought mine used, but the amp had water damage due to the vents for it on the left side of the driver's seat letting in water, probably snow or something that fell in there. Was $1200 to replace. Basically your car will be fine for a couple weeks, maybe a month then the battery will die.
