  1. Crank No Start

    9-5 Workshop
    This is for a 2009 9-5 with 166k mi. Two weeks ago my car would crank but not start even with a jump. Had a new battery put in and all was good.

  2. Acceleration cut, engine dies. Fuel pump/DIC?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hello, Well, I've been working on my 2001 9-3. A week ago my car cut out in power during acceleration and then died and wouldn't start up. Crank, no start. The next day I went to go check out the car and it fired right up so I brought it home. Ignition pressure measured 5psi-10psi, idle was...

  6. Saab 9-3 Ignition Cassette questions and advice request

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    I have a 2000 Saab 9-3. In June the ignition cassette failed and I replaced it with a mailed-ordered replacement. The failure was noticed by the engine light coming on and noticing the resulting OBD codes. Last week while pulling into a parking lot the car died, would not start and was...
  7. Aftermarket DIC?

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Found this aftermarket DIC... The website states "They have the original Saab SEM capacitor which insures they will not cause a check engine issue in OBD I cars. " Opinions?
