Sid displays steering wheel lock engaged. The key stays in the locked position.
First time it has happened
My tachometer doesn’t work it just goes wherever it wants. My speedometer doesn’t go lower than 7 mph even when the car is stopped and in park and my turbo meter only goes about a quarter of the way down. Could it be an electrical issue and if so which fuse controls these? Also the lock button on the inside of the drivers door only works when the door is closed.
I am getting a steering lock malfuntion when it put the key in the ignition and it will not turn at all. I have replaced the ignition switch the battery and the key fob battery with no results.

The passenger seat in my saab convertible 9-3 2003 will only recline so far back before making a clicking noise. The seat is controlled by power, it can move in all the other directions. But can only get to about an 90 degree angle. I took the seat out the gears appear intact.
