    When I pulled up to stop light the car just quit waited 10 minutes started back up but for only 4 times, then it die'd had to get it towed. Replaced the fuel fiilter but there is no fuel getting to the filter. No power to the pump.

    My 1994 900se turbo set for two days over a weekend, a cold one, and i did not see a need to go anywhere. The Following monday tried to start it for work and would only crank over, and over. Full Tank of Premium gas. It does not have the power to the fuse panel inside the drivers side dash for the fuel pump. I did test the pump and it will work. Is it an ignition prob? (i.e. Key) Has new batt., new plugs. I have been under the dash to see if wires came loose or were pinched, they were not. Anything will help as it has been sitting.

I have a 1994 Chrysler labaron i have replaced the fuel pump & filter & the relay but it still blows the fuse

Sounds like a short somewhere in the circuit. If you are able check all wiring coming from the fuel pump for any chafed wires or loose connections check connectors and harnesses for corrosion or loose connection which can cause resistance. also check for any signs of melted or burnt wires or connectors. hope this helps some.

I assume you've checked the battery and it's connections. Next I would look for a fuse or fuse link that feeds the ignition switch. If that is okay, it points to the ignition switch and it's wiring. I hope this steers you in the right direction.

My saab 1994 900 s has no power to fuel pump

Fuel pump runs or not ? If runs and no presure at out put line than either the pump is toast or the filter (before the pump) is plugged or plane Jane no fuel or a pin hole in the suction line (draws air instead of fuel), if the fuel pump does not run, than check the fuse and the connector at the pump to ensure power goes to the pump.

Hey, I just replaced the fuel pump and fuel filter on my 91 Saab 900s and the care turns over but does not start or it starts for a few seconds while pumping the gas and cuts off when you stop the gas....

take out your shrader valve in the fuel rail and bridge 30 and 87 on your fuel pump relay. Run the pump untill there is no more air in the lines.

I have a 89saab. I have no power to the fuel pump?

Check fuse 22 (10 A - 1989 to 93) it's the fuel system, and fuse 30 (20 A) it's for the fuel pump; there is a relay located behind right side trim panel in front of passenger foot well.

To test the relay, remove it and jumper between sockets 30 and 87b (middle and bottom); if the pump runs, the pump is OK and the relay suspect. If the pump doesn't run, then a circuit is suspect, eg power from relay to pump, or power from battery to relay, or a ground connection. To check these you'll need a wiring diagram - get the "Bentley Bible" - aka the Saab 900 Official Service Manual, costs about $40 from Amazon!

16 valve manual:

8 valve manual :
get the appropriate manual for your car and enjoy the Saab!

Most likely it's the relay.

Possible other causes are:
blocked fuel filter - under right rear, in front of gas tank (fuel spills are dangerous - don't smoke, etc!);

broken wire connection to pump - check continuity between fuse 30 and pump connection;

dead pump - you could provide power to the pump to check if it runs;

The fuses for classic Saab 900s are located under the hood on top of the fender driver's side. This includes fuel pump fuse.
