Question about 2000 Saab 9-3 Viggen
Hello, I have a 200 Saab 93. It all of a sudden started not starting. it turns over perfect but it just won't start. the engin rolls over but won't start. then if you come back and try it again 2 hours later it will start just like nothing ever happened. i replaced the battery and have had it in to a international specialization mechanic 4 times. he can;t find any thing. it could be a number of different things. some thing to do with the ignition or spark plugs, gas hose??if any one could help me with this problem i would love to know.
The eletric fuel pump in the tank may be operating intermitently.try turning the key without starting it you should hear a little hum(2 to 5 seconds)if not wait your 2 hrs and try again.or if you don't hear anything the 1'st time leave the key on then reach under there and tap the tank with a rubber mallet to see if the pump starts if so there's your problem.hope this help's.

I have the same problem, looks like it appear when i stress the car. also the door lock doesent work when i cant start, appears like everything is dead. solution is to wait minutes to hours until it starts. or try to hit middle console or slaming the door several times. then it starts.

Could be you crank shaft positions sensor, I have a 2000 93 Viggen and it had the same symptoms yours has and the Crank shaft positions sensor fixed the problem.
