    97 saab 900 se 2.0 turbo ... check engine and check gearbox lights are on. Both lights came on after a rough start up. Has had a hard time starting up, will turn over and over in 10-20 degree temperatures. A little better in 30 degree weather. But both lights are on and continue to stay on. Now hearing a small consistent squeal (like a wet belt squeal) when car starts. Also running a little rough. Just got 4 new tires and an alignment. Taking to the mechanic tomorrow for a tune up and to check out those lights...

Where do i puchase spark plugs for my 1992 saab 9000 non turbo in lakeland,fl


Both Auto Zone and Advance Auto carry the plugs you need for your Saab....you can check on-line for the store nearest you...if they don't have them in stock they can order them for you and you can usually get them the same day. I have never had a problem ordering plugs for my 1997 Saab 900S nor for the 1997 Saab 9000 and 1999 Saab 900SE that I work on for friends.....hope this helps.

How do you check the ignition discharge module to see if it works properly


Diagnostic Procedure .
  1. Check the ignition discharge module's ground connection
    • Connect a test lamp to battery positive (B+) and pin 6 of the ignition discharge module's connector. The test lamp should light up.
Is the test lamp on?

YES: Continue with point 2.
NO: Check and rectify the wiring, including grounding point G7P. Then continue with point 4.

  1. Check the ignition discharge module's 12 V supply
    • Connect the test lamp to pin 10 of the ignition discharge module's connector and battery negative (B-).
    • Activate one of the ignition coils by means of the ISAT scan tool. The purpose of this is to cause the main relay to operate.
The test lamp should light up.

Does the test lamp light up?

YES: Continue with point 3.
NO: Continue as described in "Fault diagnosis, main relay".

WARNING: The electronic ignition system generates up to 40,000 Volts. Such voltages can prove fatal to people with weak hearts or those who are fitted with a pacemaker. All due caution should therefore be observed when carrying out any work involving the ignition system .

IMPORTANT:
The ignition discharge module must be positioned with the ignition coils downwards during the test so that the transformer oil will provide good insulation in the high-tension part of the coils.

  1. Check the operation of the ignition discharge module
Sparks should be produced on each spark plug that is activated.

Are sparks obtained?

YES: Change the spark plug and continue with point 4.
NO: Change the ignition discharge module and continue with point 4.
  1. Final check:
    • Try to start the engine.
Did the engine start?

YES: The remedial measure taken was correct.
NO: The fault is not in the ignition system.
