Follow the positive cable from your battery.  The path is Battery - Starter - Alternator. On the back of the motor. the positive connection can sometimes be an issue with corrosion.

Hi my name is collins

Double check your connections to your starter, and the DIC (on top of the engine).

Engine diagram

I don't have a diagram but the starter always has a connection to the battery. Follow battery connections and you will find the starter. It is always on the opposite side of the engine that the belts are on.

Where is the starter relay located under the dash of saab 93 SE 1999 convertable manual. Car will turn over once but not engage. 2nd attempt nothing. Battery, starter motor and crank shaft good. New...

I'm not sure if the relays are marked by letters and numbers but the relay should be identified by the letter "K". One quick question; on the second attempt do you lose ALL power to everything? If this is the case you may be looking at a bad ground and would check the ground wire for starters at where it connects to the engine block. Wish I had a diagram of the fuse layout and hope it's marked by letters and numbers for you. I hope this helps and good luck.

Hello I am having a problem getting my 2003 Saab 9-5 Aero to start. There is no check engine light on at this time. It all started literally when at random times it would fail to start after driving for...

might be a neutral safety switch problem. I had the same issues. good luck.

1. Removed positive lead on battery.
2. Removed panel below steering wheel.
3. Located Fuse 36 and removed the fuse.
4. Located the Relay box and located the starter relay.
5. Using electrical pliers I removed the insulation from the green/black wire coming from the bottom side of fuse #36.
6. Using 18 Gauge wire, I wrapped a piece of wire (jumper) around the exposed section of the green/black wire. The wrapped the splice with electrical tape.
7. I then removed the starter relay and located the #86 contact.
8. I connected the jumper wire to the #86 contact.
9. I then reconnected starter relay.
10. I placed the car in "Drive", turned the key (slightly), and the starter turned.

I don't have an owners manual and my 2000 saab 9-3 tries to start but won't. Trying to save a tow bill.where's the starter. someone said u can tap on it.

The fact that the engine is turning over means it is not the starter. It's clearly working. Tapping it will do nothing for you.

When an engine won't start, it's indicative of not getting fuel or not getting spark at the cylinder.

How to replace a starter

assuming you have either a 2.0 or 2.3L engine the starter is located on the back side of the engine. You may have to remove the air intake tubes from the throttle body. It sits just under the intake on the transmission. If you need further clarification let me know
