I have owned my 1999 Saab 9-3 for almost 2 months now. It has 140k miles on it and runs like it has 40k. I have had no problems with it what so ever. Until 3 days ago. I came home from school to pick up some stuff, i went back out to my 9-3 and tried to start it. Nothing happened. It turned over but didn't start. I couldn't believe it, it was just working 5 minutes ago. I waited for my dad to get home to get his insight on the problem. He checked the obvious problems (spark plugs, battery, ect) He couldn't find any problems. He then proceed to check the car with a code scanner. The error codes P0001 and P0020 came back.
- Code P0001 Fuel Volumne Regulator Control Circuit Open
- Code P0020"B" Camshaft Position Actuator Circuit
He concluded that something was wrong with the CPS (crankshaft position sensor) He tested it using a meter to find the ohms and said there was no problems with it. He rechecked the spark plugs and noticed they were dry, meaning no gas was reaching them. He predicted something was wrong with the fuel pump or filter. We will check it tomorrow, Its 11:30 at night and we need to go to sleep. If someone has any suggestions please share it will me. I will greatly appreciate it.
thanks in advance!
I now see i made a mistake in my title, lol i meant 9-3
