I know this is quite common but the cause varies. It can be the ignition switch module (ISM) or the CIM, or the steering lock itself. Or all of the above!

Presumably you also moved the ignition switch over to match the key, so maybe worth trying swap of the CIM?

Fantastic project – hope you get it going soon! G'day from across the ditch!

She runs.....great feeling.......still a few niggles...... have to start by shorting across starter relay - think both my SCL are toast (or bricked)- pulled one apart, discovered a pin that locks teeth out, have removed pin from the one fitted, but still have "steering lock malfunction"message. Have gone back to Aero rear fuse box, this has sorted the flashing rear lights. Had to modify the +positive terminal, as without the "blow out fuse" had Airbag Light on. Tech 2 is saying we have issue with Yaw sensor, so tomorrows task is to dig deep below the gear selector and change that, hopefully this will rectify traction control issue. Have a cornering light issue ???? Not sure what to look for here. The good points the XWD system seems all good, she runs great, tracks straight, steering wheel straight, but will still get a wheel alinement done. Need to re-gas air con.

Saab say that the yaw sensor needs a Tech2 reset if work is done on the steering. If the wheel speeds, steering angle and yaw sensor don't match within limits, it throws an error. A reset may be all that's needed.
