SOURCE: While driving, all warning lights on dash suddenly were lit. When I stopped the car, it wouldn't start again and sounded as though the battery was dead.

Probably the alternator died, then used up all the power in your battery to keep the car running.
Have your alternator tested and maybe replaced. The battery needs tested also.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: My battery keeps dying but my alternator is fine

First, DON"T check your alternator that way anymore. It's not good to do on newer systems! The best, quickest check I can tell you is to put a volt meter across the battery. Running with accessories off you should see voltage of about 13.5 to 14.5.
With all accessories and headlamps on high turned on, it should not drop below 12.5. (and that is the absolute low end!).
It sounds like something in the car is staying on. check the glovebox light and interior light delay and make sure they are OK. Otherwise, you will have to start checking entire system for a draw that's taking out the battery overnight. To check, you can pull one fuse at a time and see if draw goes away, then check system that fuse serves.

I believe it is your factory anti-theft system. check your owners manual for how to disengage same.

The easiest way to check is with the car running, disconnect the positve side of the battery, if the car dies, then it is the altenator, if the car keeps running then it is the battery. If you have a volt ohm meter, check the chrge going to the battery you should get between 12 and 14 volts if it is lower than 12 you have an altenator issue. the altenator should always produce enough to charge the battery and run the car at the same time, if not then the battery wears down.

Lights flash when trying to jump start a saab 9000


Read the owner's manual about jump starting. It may be different than 'normal' cars. Also, the lights flashing is probably related to the car's alarm needing reset. .....again read the owner's manual for more info.

Battery died after 1 week of jump start ?


Charge it all the way up. Then take it to a auto parts store and get the battery and starter and alternator tested.

Hello, my girlfriend has a Saab 9-3 as well and her battery just died I think. Funny, she got it from a Regency Chrysler dealer and the battery is a 12v GM battery. Is this a problem? What battery...


No, a battery is a battery as long as its 12volts. I would take it back and have it tested, if its bad Im sure they will warranty it. This would be a good time to check the charging system to insure the alternator is putting out the proper voltage and amps to keep the battery charged.

1999 saab 9-5 while driving it is jerking, at times it does not start without a jump


If the battery cable are not corroded, replace the battery. The battery is a very important component of an electrical system. Any check engine lights? 99 models often have a hole burned into the turbo hose on the right side of the car.

Based on the information you have provided your problem is one of two things
1.Bad fuel pump -to check this have the fuel pressure tested if above 40psi you should be able to start the vehicle. (you can borrow/rent a fuel pressure tester at an auto parts store)
2.Bad crank and cam sensors -these are what tell the injectors to fire, so if you have good fuel pressure to the injectors but still no start I would replace both the crank and cam sensors.

alternator gone bad, 100%. as the voltage starts dropping, all the lights on the dash will go crazy because the electronics cannot perform their self diagnostics, as they do not have sufficient voltage.

1999 Saab 9-5 SE


I own a  99' 9-5 V6 turbo SE.  Had the same thing.  Started smelling gas in the car, sometimes.  Instead of not starting it died (as in the engine stopped) on a barren stretch of road at night.  Towed to the Saab dealer: Conclusion?  Replaced the fuel pump and sending unit. Don't ask how much.
