The 3 main reasons for cut off are ignition cassette, fuel pump or cranckshaft sensor!

SOURCE: Saab ignition problem

it is definately the main relay. if you replace the relay then you will fix the problem. Over time the circuit board cracks and causes it to go bad.

you should check your fuel pressure and be sure it is within spec, is this a 2.0T or a 2.3 non turbo and also this is fuel injected correct? same as the U.S.A. 97 saab 900s? if it is a 2.0 with direct ignition try changing out the DI cassette with a friend or junkyard unit to see if that solves it -Jeff also please rate

If you have an automatic transmission and notice that the engine bogs down as you slow, the tranny may need adjustment as it sounds like it isn't releasing as it should as you stop.

Saab 9-5 Aero Wagon 2000 wont restart when warm or after running


I have a 1999 Saab 9-5. I had a similiar problem. The car would always run cold. It would get hot and the engine would quit. It could be anywhere. One mile from start to 50 miles from start. Once it cooled down it would re-start but the cool down time was always different. Only difference for me was my car would crank, just not run. Replaced the crank position sensor ($60), no more problems! Good luck!

Saab 900i 1992 model won't Start


sounds like a fuel problem check for spark and try to get the car running on ehter (aerosol starting fluid) spray it into the air intake (makesure not to spray the filter just take it out) and have a helping hand turn the key if the car runs, then its a fuel problem prbly the fuel pump, NOTE: When running only on ether the car will sound very funny this is normal, IF the car wont start problems are elsewhere such as a timing belt slipping, no spark, no compression, Bad coil, weak starter, bad valve ect etc HOPETHIS HELPS feel free to e-mail me at fixya@whypayforhelp.org
