Right they are different, Saab's ignition is center location Colbolt is steering wheel. One true fact is when GM's safety engineer reported the problem. Year 2000 was before any Colbolt ever seen the light of day, so exactly what car was the engineer filling his/her report on.

Your right I can get my 9-5 to reproduce the shut down and I could very well chalk up what happend as a fluke, as a glitch and would have if there was never an ignition fault with the company who makes the car brand.

How many Saab drivers ever tuch the key while the cars in motion, how many times dose anything touch the key. Colbolts steering wheel key mount has the drivers knees bumping into the key chain wiggling it, excessive glamor hanging from the key had been to blame in which they suggested to only use the key itself to avoid the problem.

Personaly I couldn't get the Colbolt to shut off on me, how GM researchers found the process to get it to repeat in its fault is beyond me. Perhaps they should put Saab through the same tests.. But wait there's no need to becouse the car dosent exist.

I'm just saying your Saab ignition isn't far from Colbolt and in 2001 there wasn't Colbolts what cars were filed under the report from the engineer we'll never know. I'd bet if all Saab drivers started lightly touching the top of their ignition key while driving you'd have more reports of it. But doing that is not even in the context of driving a Saab. Nothing ever touches the Saab key and if there's a key chain no weight is ever on it.

Even at the peak of Colbolt sales only a few had reported the problem the few who died. If your going to make tapping the top of your Saab key a habit to see if you should play the lotto that day. Just know the motor will not restart by just turning the key to the off position then to run to try to get the motor fired back up. The car need to be fully stopped with shifter in park and key turned to off then to run. If your at high speeds you'll have to fight power steering in an automatic untill your stopped. How do I know this because I tried to go straight to run to start the motor then cycled to off then to run possession to try to get the motor fired up nothing. The problem is there and it's hiden under your if
Ignition key.

I'm a diy'er and having a dead motor for me is fun and exciting all at the same time. But for grandma, she would never touch the key while driving and the chances are 1% being how I've tried over and over. The researchers who found out the problem in a lab may be able to up that %age but as a daily driver of a Saab that's were its at.
