srp Does reverse work?

NickTurbo900 Pull battery terminals overnight.

Sorry man it doesnt sound good. Here in the US ive junked a half dozen cars with good gearboxes. They are pretty stout. If the rest of the car is that good then spend the $ and put a used one in.

Try saabcentral for more uk folks.

NickTurbo900 What is the code?

Is the the shift cable moving the gear selector switch on the transmission?

Where are you located? UK?

You are probably going to need some (techII scan tool) help no matter what the problem is.

Maybe this is why they sold it? Did it happen really really soon after buying it?
