Chances are you have a short, usually a faulty wire. This can be a simple leakage from an insulation problem, or attachment that is loose. Tighten all fittings and remove any debris that cover the battery posts, especially corrosion. Check electronic connections at the starter. The starter can be tested outside the car for continuity and functionality.

Did you put plug wire grease on the ends of the wires? especially at the distrib. end. If it has a distributor, check the cap for cracks. One good test is to use a spray bottle, and spray the plug wires, the distributor, and see if the rpm changes. It shouldn't. If it does, you should be able to see a spark jumping someplace, and probably hear it as well

Saab 93 convertable, Rain water fills the drivers footwell when the car is parked downhill.


I am not sure if it is the same problem I had with my '04 93 SS, but there is a cabin air filter that has a drain next to it that allows the rain water to run down to the ground. Mine was clogged up with leaves and other junk which caused the rain water to leak through the filter into the cabin. Being that yours is a different body style, your filter may be on the drivers side which would cause this. I would try to look up where your Cabin Air Filter is and try to clean the drain.

Moisture in your ignition system can cause this to happen , start with a cap/rotor and wire replacement. More then likely this will cure your rainy day blues.
