Question about Cars & Trucks
I have a 1989 Saab 900 s and recently the computer system seems to be throwing a temper tantrum, when i open the door the dash lights come on and i can here ticking/and circuit noises coming from where the computer is located, when i try to turn the car on the starter turns over but it seems like the fuel pump isn't triggered on. what is my first course of action troubleshooting?

It looks like you have an issue with the starter not engaging the flywheel correctly. Does it make a BrrrrRRRRRRRRRRP noise? Best advice: Replace the starter. Do not get it rebuilt. If you replace the starter ASAP, you may be OK. If not, you are going to have to have the transmission pulled, and you will have to replace the flywheel; that is what is being damaged by the bad starter drive. This is, unfortunately, a common issue.
Thanks for choosing FixYa for advice!

SOURCE: my motor making a ticking noise
make sure the battery is fully charged, and then if so, you have a starter that has went out.. you will need to replace it...
also, make sure the battery cables are tight and clean

CHECK IF TURN SIGNALS WORK, USUALLY ON GM CARS IF A BULB IS BURNED IT WILL TICK FASTER, IT IS AN INDUCATION OF BURNT BULB - COULD BE FRONT OR REAR

remove the AC relay to shut the AC off all the time. Not sure why it wont start but you may havea security lockout. Fully charge the battery to proceed.
