Saab Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.The problem you are having may be a problem with the Column Integration Module (CIM) and Ignition Switch Module but in order to determine what is failing the first thing your going to need to do is to have the system scanned to see what fault codes are setting. Unfortunately a Tech 2 scanner with Saab software is needed to diagnose and repair this issue. This in most cases means the dealer will need to do the scan for you. If you have access to the scan tool and can get me the fault code and or codes I will try and help you.
Yes this system requires a Tech 2 scanner which Saab dealer have and also some GM dealers. It sounds like something has lost programming but the only way to know if in fact that is the case you are going to need to start a system scan.
Unfortunately I do not know of a way. I can open the post back up for you if you would like to see if someone else may have more information for you.
Okay, doing so now, if someone else has something new to offer they will respond.
hi, does cars have a problem with immobilizer control module (CIM) with is integrated with steering column switches assembly , this is something good locksmith or dealership have to fix for you, used parts can be used for repairs but require some electronic repair skills, and dealership will not do it for you or go used parts way. they will want to replace whole module with new ignition keys.
