Crankshaft Position Sensor (CPS) is your first place to start.

Agree, you can confirm that if the tachometer needle don't move when you crank the engine
use Oem one not cheaper others
Agree. However the sensor is just a simple coil, no rocket science there. I would go for the cheapest I can find.

If the needle moves when cranking first thing to do is replaceing the Ignition coil cassette. This IS rocket science use OEM, as new as possible.

I would like to respectfully disagree here. A part can be simple yet still poorly made. There are examples of many on these forums who used a cheap non-OEM CPS and regretted it soon after. This is a mission-critical part, and I'd suggest Bosch or Genuine Saab.

Agree 100% with your comments regarding the DIC.
