    The other day, returning to car after parking, 'Service steering lock' message comes up - steering locked & won't allow me to start. Locked, walked away, came back again. No joy.

  4. Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi I’ve got a few 93 models and I’ve had some door lock problems over recent times. I noted when experimenting with the two cars (2003 and 2006) that the door locks in the older model have an extra set of micro switches and this allows the car to know what state the lock position is in I.e...

    My classic 1993 Saab 900 Turbo has the SRS & Anti lock light on dash. Nobody including the go to Saab specialist here in Vancouver has a scanner to diagnose the issue. Can anyone help out with a local specialist or to let me know what scanner to buy? Thanks so much!

    I've got a 2011 93 Saab and had the dreaded Steering lock malfuntion error for some time. Looking through old treads I've seen suggested things to try is a new battery. Done that.

  10. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Basically my 2001 9-3 RHD convertible is stuck in P unless I use the override (bodge key, screwdriver etc. into the rectangular recess next to the shifter). Obviously I'd like to eliminate the easy options first, so I've started looking for the relay which is responsible. However, this is...

    Hi All, I have a SAAB 9-3 TTID (2011 model) which I have owned for a week. I'm really pleased with the car except for an intermittent issue with the front passenger door lock. Sometimes when the car is unlocked with the fob, the passenger door stays locked. The snib goes fully up (as if it has...
