Same thing is happening on my 1994 ng900 / gm900.

Reverse lights on while in Drive or in Park.

People keep saying.. "hey.. your reverse lights are on..!!"

Did you find a solution to this yet ??

Are you serious ??:cheesy:
Your police have nothing better to do ??:nono;

And the neutral-b/u switch is probably misbehaving itself.

Guys... Is this the correct replacement procedure?? I found it on thesaabsite.com.

Since I don't feel like shelling out $500 for a switch... What is the cleaning procedure for this neutral safety switch ??


Gear Selector switch replacement information: 94-98 Saab 900
Put in the shifter in Park and Remove the Battery
Remove the dipstick
Remove the servo pump pipe mounting bracket below the battery to get to the gear selector position sensor.
Remove the lever
Remove the gear selector position sensor bolt & nut
Unplug the electrical connector and Remove the sensor off the shaft.
INSTALLATION:
Plug in the connector and mount the sensor on the shaft.
Fit the gear selector position sensor's nut & tighten to 6 lb.ft ft of torque
Re-install the lever but do not tighten it and move the selector lever to position Neutral position. Lift off the lever and check the position of the gear selector position sensor (You can do this by checking that the engine starts with the selector lever in positions P and N and that the reversing light comes on only in the reverse position, continue to adjust until you get this correct)
Tighten the bolts to 18.5 lb.ft ft of torque
Clean and lubricate the fluid filler pipe's O-ring with Vaseline and re-install by tightening to 18.5 lb.ft ft of torque
Install the pump pipe's mounting bracket & put the battery back in

A INTERNET search yields this : bending a section of metal can fix the neutral switch - from The Saab Site..(SaabNet)

http://www.saabnet.com/aas/2005.W48/1078687533.3488.html
But the gentleman's query was never answered.

The VW unit also stopped functioning for the B/U lights; I saw NO WAY to fix this; thus it was off to Hanks..

That is not to say the Saab unit cannot be cleaned, I just think no-one has done this yet..
