Saab 9-3 (9440) Frequently Asked Questions 2003 - 2011


Ignition Switch Frozen

SAAB 93 1999, recently had the ignition switch INOP, Key would go into the slot but key could not be turned to start car, Since the weather was sub zero for over 60 hours, I decided to try heating the key with a candle lighter, after heating the key about 4 times it TURNED--yeah. So it appears that a snow flake or several drifted into the switch, melted and then re froze making the switch INOP. That night I used a hair dryer and a little WD40, switch works great, keys go in and out with ease. I did look up the SAABSITE pricing and FAQ for a new switch, Great service
