Question about 1993 Saab 900

2 Answers

2003 Saab 9-3 won't start. Battery appears to be fine.

Tonight saab would not start.  Battery was fine. A tow truck tried to jump it but tow truck person said the battery was fine.   All lights lit up.  When key was turned there was a clicking noise  At one point, the car started and I was able to get home.  But then the fan for the defrost would not turn off when the car was turned off.  Removed fuse and replaced it.   But then car would not start up again.  Same thing.  All lights came on and clicking noise.  Help!

You could try tapping the starter and/or having it checked by a mechanic. If the vehicle is starting once in a while, have a mechanic check the Crank Shaft Position Sensor located on the Intake Manifold under an aluminum bracket. The wire to the sensor leads towards the throttle body. the connector at the throttle body is blue. This sensor is notorious for giving out gradually. If this is the problem, seriously replace it as the vehicle could die when driving (i've heard, but don't quote me on that). I owned a 2001 9-3 turbo and the same thing would happen until it no longer cranked. I replaced it when i researched the issue on the internet. The car turned on as soon as i replaced it 8) and did not have the same problem again.

Good luck!

    You have a loose wire on the starter. Even a little makes a big difference. Check all your connections.

Ok, those systems might still work because the not require as much energy as the starter. Check the Battery Voltage with a good Voltmeter. If below 12, there might be your problem!

Sounds like your starter motor is bad. Is the starter motor spinning?
