: 9000 No start

26th January 2003, 03:20 PM
I am nowhere near the car, so all I have is second hand info. Anyway, my mom told me the 90 Saab Turbo Cd just refuses to start. It wouldn't crank, so she put a battery in it. Now it cranks, but doesn't fire. Upon further investigation she noticed that the serpentine belt is *missing*. She insists that is why it won't start. I can't see why that would cause the car not to run. Kill the battery, yes, because the alt is not turning, but still run. If it was the timing chain, I could see that it would not start, but not just the serpentine belt. Anyone have any insight on this?

Thanks in advance,


P.S - For those who tell me to look at the car, it is about 380 miles away from where I am right now.
