I'd be inclined to get into the workings behind the switch and make sure it hadn't dropped off or just got stuck. If it's where I think it is, I think the gear stick surround pops off quite easily, exposing the area underneath. If the button has just got stuck, I think just unplugging the switch from the electric block behind it should do the trick; that, or the other way round ... As in you'll need to bridge the contacts. Good luck, Paul 1989 900 Turbo S http://saab.go.dyndns.org/
