Hedlights on my 1992 Saab 9000 just stopped working
I just bought this Saab a week ago its a 1992 and only has 85,000 miles. two days in to driving it the headlights wouldnt turn on. I contacted the guy who sold it to me and he said to flicker the high beams a couple of times and they will turn on. When I triad that the high beams flashed once or twice and then they stopped working too! I have asked the seller if he had any other suggestions but I haven't heard back.

take it down to autozone and use there portable computer and see what codes are in your
computer the counter person will be glad to help you hook it up and explain what the codes
are that's a good place to start
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.
If i were you i would get back to where you bought it as soon as posible, if he's any kind of dealer and with a reputation to uphold he will fix it for you, and you say he specializes on this type of car he most likely knows whats wrong with it.
Jumpstarting cars with electronic ignition is not a good idea. Your car is also fitted with an immobilizer, hence the alarm going off. Get someone to drive you to a place that sells suitable batteries, and fit the new one. You should be fine.
Your Saab does not have a timing belt, it has a chain. You need to remove the chain tensioner and see how much it has extended. If it has plenty yet to go, your chain is fine to go more miles. If it is fully extended or nearly so, you are on borrowed time.
