You can try syphoning the fuel out, but gas tastes horrid!

Another option is to use the fuel pump to empty the tank; it's high pressure, so be careful with the flow from the end of the fuel line. The banjo connector at the end of the fuel rail atop the engine is easy to disconnect, but won't be the easiest to get into a container (use an approved container - and avoid burning up your car: cold engine, no sparks) You might want to push the end of the banjo into a large diameter rubber hose, and clamp the hose to the banjo line, so that you don't have leaks and can get the fuel away from the engine bay without having to hold or balance a fuel container.

Good luck!

Easiest way, is to disconnect the fuel line from the fuel rail and jumper the fuel pump circuit in the fuse box.

    An even easier way is to just drive the car.

If the fuel tastes terrible... add some ice, orange juice and invite friends over to help take turns... (it was too good to pass sorry) LOL.

Engine turns over but my Saab 900i s won't start, and fuel not getting into engine, but, I have nearly half a tank, can the crank sensor stop the injectors from sending fuel into engine?

Yes, it will. The crank sensor sends pulses to the vehicle computer, which uses them to synchronize the firing of the injectors with the rotation of the engine. If there is no input from the crank sensor, there will be no injector pulse and no spark pulse.

You Probably need a new fuel pump(comes with fuel sending unit). But you'll want to proof it out before you start buying expensive parts. If you access the fuel pump, remove it and inspect it. You will narrow it down. The float could have fallen off or failed, the sending unit could be damaged (use a multimeter to test), or the wiring or plug to the sending unit could be corroded or broken.

Leak on diesel fuel tank after filling it, 1994 Renault Traffic

Well because of the age I think you need a new fuel tank. It could be a rotted fuel line, sending unit, or hose . You will still need to drop the tank to find out what you need. NOTE, use up most of the fuel before dropping it. you dont want it to fall freely or damage will come to electrical components.

Ignition switch on my 1987 Saab 900i

You may need to remove the ignition housing assembly to find out whats wrong inside. There are a series of small gears which connect the ignition barrel to the ignition switch & also operate the reverse gear lock mechanism. You'll need a special 3 pronged tool to remove the assembly - available from SAAB dealers.

Saab 900i 1992 model

I had a similar problem with my 94 Saab 900, I needed to reset the radio code because the one in my user manual was wrong. If you can remove the radio from the dash (you can buy a tool or make it with metal clothes hangers). Pop the radio out and the correct code will sometimes be written on the top of the radio.

Either way entering this correct code did nothing for me on startup. But the solution is far out - turn the ignition key to "on" without starting the engine so the electrical system is on. Then leave this for 1 hour. When you return the HID will display "enter code" (exactly like if you hold down the BAND button - but that doesn't work like this does). Now enter the correct code.
