I still have a no start situation with my ‘86 Turbo 900. I’ve replaced the distributor with a used one and confirmed that it’s not the ignition amplifier relay now I’m thinking it’s the ICM. Do these ever go bad? How important is it to put the exact right one in as I see there are lots that “work” for. The one in there now is 0227100139 which is for a 9000

They definitely do fail, and usually fail completely. There are only two versions for B202s... 0227100139 which is for a turbo, and 0227100124 which is for a non-turbo. 9000 and 900 use the same modules (along with a bunch of other cars too).

I was told by my local Saab dealer that I need part 0227100137. I hate to just throw parts at it, could this be the reason for a no spark as that’s what my local Saab specialist said.

If you have the ignition amplifier in the fusebox, throw it away and bypass it according to the Service Bulletin. They fail all the time.
Look it up, but I think you jump it 3 O'clock to 6 O'clock.

I don't know, I remember it from 1986.
Try the Service Information Suplements in the Stickies, ask the internet.

Bosch 137 and 139 are interchangeable. Same part, with a bunch of other possible cross references too.

See here, for example-
