    hi bob,

    i never heard of an exploding radiator before, do you mean your car suddenly overheated with lots of steam, or that some major part of the water cooling system broke (?hose/radiator) and your car suddenly lost most of its water ?

    there are several major engine malfunctions that can cause your engine to suddenly overheat, and you might want to first exclude that possibility (if your engine severely overheats for a prolonged period the engine can seize up (lock up). hopefully that is not what happened.

    i have not heard of a "general switch" that is activated on a saab engine as a safety measure to protect the engine in case of overheating, but if there is wouldnt it show a specific error code on the SID ? your car is a diesel engine, so that might have other causes then a petrol engine.

    hopefully some more knowledgeable people can provide more specific answers
