Problem is probably the key recognition module below the ignition switch. You will need the service manual to fix this.

Is it a manual transmission? I know some of the older
Saabs need the transmission in reverse to get the key out. Try wiggling the shifter and see if it helps with turning the key.

0300 is misfire detected. 0246 turbo waste gate error and 0201-4 is injector malfunction.
Long overdue for a service at a Saab/Volvo service department I suspect.

two main things

Anti-theft system activated.

Fuel pump issues

or any number of sensor issues. Connect it to a code reader

Did you test the low beam electrical circuit using a volt meter ? Look at a wiring diagram to see what all is involved in turning the lights on ? Do you know how to test electrical circuits ?
Also reading service repair manual about the head lamps opp. would be a good thing to do .
The major common components of this system are the body control module (BCM), ambient light sensor, multifunction switch, park brake switch, and the headlamps.
The headlamps may be turned on in 2 different ways. First, when the driver places the headlamp switch in the HEADLAMP position, normal operation occurs. Second, with the headlamp switch is placed in the AUTO position, automatic lamp control (ALC) occurs. During ALC control, the headlamps will be in daytime running lamp (DRL) operation in daylight conditions, or low beam operation in low light conditions.
The low beam relay and high beam relay receive battery positive voltage directly from the battery through the HDM and COILS fuses in the underhood fuse block. The BCM supplies a ground signal to the low beam relay coil for automatic headlamp control and normal headlamp operation. The BCM also supplies ground to the high beam relay coil for high beam headlamp operation. When the driver places the headlamp switch in the HEADLAMP position and the dimmer switch is in the low beam position, the low beam relay energizes sending current flow through the left and right low beam headlamp fuses to both low beam headlamps. The dimmer switch sends a ground signal to the BCM in the high beam position and a momentary ground signal in the flash-to-Pass (FTP) position from G102 to deactivate the low beam headlights and activate the high beam headlights. With the headlights in the low beam position, the high beams may be momentarily turned on or flashed by activating the FTP portion of the switch.

Low Beams - Standard
The standard low beam headlamps receive voltage from the headlamp driver module located in the underhood fuse block. The body control module (BCM) controls the headlamp driver module with the headlamp low beam relay control circuit. Low beam control is determined by a signal on the headlamp dimmer switch signal circuit from the multifunction switch. When the headlamps are requested ON and the headlamp dimmer switch signal circuit is open, the BCM sends a pulse width modulated (PWM) ground signal though the headlamp low beam relay control circuit to the headlamp driver module which illuminates the low beam headlamps at a 100 percent intensity level. The right and left low beam circuits are independent and are fused separately in the underhood fuse block. The LOW HDLP-RT 10A fuse supplies voltage to the right low beam headlamp and the LOW HDLP-LT 10A fuse supplies voltage to the left low beam headlamp. The right and left headlamps are grounded at G103 and G107 respectively.

Your best bet mite be to have a qualified technician check it

Slide under the bumper and look on the back side of it. You will find the bolts that attach it to the body.

1999 Saab 9-5 | Answered on Nov 19, 2019

I changed my steering column universal joint and the Anit skid light came on. Reason being the sensor for the steering wheel needed re calibrating on the Tech 2. The computer can sense if the steering wheel is not straight. Two Hall sensors are inside the column module pick up movement from a gear and this is relayed to the Hall sensor. My car has a later steering column universal join so I had to rotate on the spines to get the steering wheel near straight then get it re calibrated. all ok now .

The stability control system uses the abs wheel speed sensors to detect when a wheel is losing traction and would presumably apply the brake on that wheel to maintain traction.

The system is the Vauxhall (GM's British operation) version of a traction control system further refined by Saab's engineers.

Stability control failure means the system will no longer be available to assist the driver maintain traction.

I take help from online websites that have this service like helping in repair some like reliable-store have instant help.. others are a bit slow which I don't prefer... rest is up to u.. U can also get free manuals

Saab Cars &... | Answered on Aug 15, 2019

Yes cheap/bad gas can cause that.
P0300 is random multiple cylinder misfire. Meaning they are all misfiring in no particular order. Bad gas or a coil going bad can cause the same problem.
