Customer Question

2008 Saab 9.5 aero w/2.8 v6 t and 6spd auto trans. Went to friends shop to have trans fluid exchanged. Had to remove battery and casing to get to filler for trans fluid. After car was put back together "steering lock malfunction stop safely" shows in dic. Now key will not turn ignition at all making it difficult to get any other codes. Are in process of cleaning contacts on ignition switch and sim. Is there possibly an easier option that escapes us? Thank you!

Looks good to me (hook up) and unable to scan since the ignition switch is locked and key will not turn car on.
