98 V6 2.5L NG 900S, on starting, displays what appears to be rapidly cycling power-loss to the electronics. When it catches, all is fine. I recall that I had similar symptoms when I flattened the battery once, but I've charged this one up full as a tick. It MAY be better when warm, but I'm not certain of that-(I don't get to drive it that often) Might this be a sign of the ECU "playing up", or do they normally just die straight out?

Welcome to saab central, when you say a power loss in the electronics, do you mean only the interior electronics, or does the engine also have some acting up issues?

The dashboard electronics are the most noticable; they go crazy, flicking on and off, and the starting appears to follow that interrupted power symptom as well, but strangely, I can't say if it's the starter motor power cutting in and out, or the ignition. I think it's the ignition that goes missing.

Thanks for your help, it's HUGELY appreciated.

My vote is on the ignition switch itself.

Sorry, can't go into more details!

thanks,,, I'll check that out. It WAS the last thing I touched when I had a prob getting the key to release. Maybe I didn't get everything back exactly right.

Hmmm, check out the ignition. You may want to make sure the battery is in good condition as well, I know it's almost too obvious, but sometimes thats all it is.
