Having problems with your 1997 Saab 900 ?

I was rolling down a window when all of a sudden the follow 4 things STOPPED WORKING and haven't worked since: - All power windows - Heater blower - Horn - Wipers All of the relays I've found seem in tact and the fuses are fine. I've even tried replacing the ignition switch module per another Saab owner's advice. Does anybody know what could be wrong?

Answers :

Is the car a convertible? If so the window controls operate through the convertible top computer.
By ignition switch module are you talking about the part under the lock cylinder? They do fail a lot.
What do you mean by the relays are intact? Have you checked for power at each fuse with the key on?

My 95 ford ranger won't start. it's a manual transmission with 227,000 miles on it. We've replaced the solenoid, the battery, and the starter and alternator are both working fine. When we try to start it, nothing happens, it doesn't even click anymore. We're trying to replace the neutral safety switch and the ignition switch, but we can't find either. Or could the problem be something else entirely?

Car wont start (wont turnover). The shift interlock solenoid is broken because I can now move my shifter to any gear even without having my keys in the ignition.

I have a 97 Saab 900 and randomly, when I rolled down the windows: All of the power windows stopped working, the heater blower won't turn on, the horn doesn't work, and the wipers won't come on. All at once! I've checked all visible relays and fuses and I've even torn apart the center console per somebody's advice and tried replacing the ignition switch module with a used one I got at a junk yard.

Ignition switch So the wire to the ignition switch seem to be shorting or something, when I try to turn on the car on all the dashboard lights dont work, neither does the radio auto headlights, heater or the fuel pump.

My bet is the ignition switch itself or the connector on the switch is bad.You say things seem to work when you move the wires. This is classic indication that the switch is bad. Let us know if this fixes the problem. Robert ... 2001 Chevrolet Malibu
