Question about 2000 Saab 9-3 Viggen
I would do the same thing take it to auto zone or Oreilly and see what those guys have to say. I usually take to a couple different shop to do free scan tool. most of the time they all say the same problem.
But Sounds like your car might have a sensor problem. could be MAF or BAF sensor. not too sure.. but you should definitely take it for scan tool test.

If the engine is still running without noises , stop worrying
the turbo could have died in which case have it replaced
yes the fault codes may reveal the area of the fault but if it is a mechanical failure , it may not show up
engine lights report on engine AND transmission faults so the indicated problem may be electronic related to the transmission controls

Sounds like you will need to have the codes read at SAAB dealer to confirm no fautly sensors have caused this to happen.
There may still be a bad component that is triggering lamp.

As Saab is in relation to Subaru.....the first thing I would check is the spark plugs, ignition coil and spark plug wires. Have a technician check them for carbon tracking as if you are getting some hesitation and is inconsistant you may very well have a missfire. Minor problem but could be costly depending upon if it's got a single coil or one for each cylinder.

my 96 900se turbo auto trans was doing the same thing. whats most likely is that the shifter cable is not fully letting the car grab the park gear, which won't let it turn on. or it may be the neutral safety swtich that needs a good cleaning or replacement. I hope this helps, in my case it was the shifter cable.
