    Hey everyone. I've been gone for awhile, enjoying a well running SAAB. I really didn't enjoy driving that will running SAAB in the winter though. Convertibles are cold, and it's a convertible, in the winter. I have been casually looking for something cheap to drive next winter, with no big...

  6. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Howdy, first time on a forum so excuse me if I somehow mess this up. I’m having an issue where the radio, A.C, and all the lights inside/outside work fine when I turn the ignition on, but there’s no crank or start. The battery is good at 12.4v (also load tested it). The starter is new (just...

  8. 9-5 Workshop
    I have a 2002 9-5 Aero wagon with 97,000 mi. For the last few of weeks I've been experiencing an intermittent no start. The engine will still turn over and the battery is strong. There are no check engine lights. At first I thought it was DIC related. Being a good Saab owner, I carry a spare in...
  9. C900 Workshop
    Hello everyone, I have a 1990 Saab 900s. When I try to start the car it will turn over without firing up, but when I turn the key back, it will sputter a bit sometimes. I did notice tho, that when it sputters it is running the wrong way. Any thoughts? I have checked with the timing light, and...

    Bought a new truck a few months back, during that period of new truck bliss the 08 9-3 2.0T 6 speed sat untouched for about a month. The 12v battery had died(fairly new battery) so I pulled it and charged it, replaced the key fob battery at the same time. I believe the BCM is in some sorta...
  11. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I bought my son's 9-3 last year and unfortunately it has sat for the majority of that time. Just before the 4th of July I had to move it and with a jump, did just that and took it for a spin around the block. Other than a dead battery, there were no issues, other than message saying alternator...

  13. 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. Then we had that polar vortex and the car once again would not start when I was leaving work. Had it towed to the shop and they said once the charged...

    Background: Bought a 1988 Saab 900 8V non-turbo from an old man. He told me the car was running before he let a friend work on it for him.

Mine started off as intermittent, now it's rare that the car starts at all. Car is a Saab 95 2.0T, 2004. Turning the key you get the “standard” dash lights...
