Look on the dash in the middle near the windshield.
There is a RED led does it flash when you put the key in and turn it on ?
or does it go out ?
If it keeps flashing then you have a security problem.
there is a good place to call if it is security
called lost saab keys dot com.

Also what does the SID display by the radio say ?

The theft prevention electronics can cause it, The engine control module can cause it, the ignition control module can also cause it.

The first step is to determine if it's a spark, fuel, or compression problem. Here's a quick way to find out which of the three is missing. Remove a plug wire, insert a Phillips screwdriver or spare plug piece of bare wire into the plug wire boot and place the end near the engine block (do not hold the plug wire while cranking the engine unless you want a shocking experience). If there's a spark when the engine is cranked, it has ignition. The problem is either fuel or compression. If the engine has an overhead cam with a timing belt, loosen the cover over the timing belt and check the belt. If the belt is okay, the problem is no fuel. Listen for the electric fuel pump in the fuel tank to make a buzzing noise when the ignition is turned on (you may have to open the gas cap to hear it). You won't hear anything if the pump has died. Diagnostics can now be focused on the fuel pump circuit to determine if the pump, relay or wiring is causing the no start. If the relay has voltage but the pump isn't running, you'll probably have to drop the fuel tank to check the wiring connector at the pump. If the problem is no spark, anything in the ignition circuit that creates the spark may be at fault. Use your AutoTap Express DIY to look for an RPM signal from the Crankshaft Position sensor while cranking the engine. A bad Crankshaft Position sensor is a common cause of no starts. The signal from this sensor goes to the PCM or ignition module that switches the ignition coil(s) on and off. If you have an RPM signal, a bad ignition module or PCM may not be switching the coil(s) on and off. Using a voltmeter, check for voltage at the coils with the key on and while cranking the engine. The voltage should be switching on and off. In ignition systems with a single coil and distributor, a bad coil or a cracked distributor cap or rotor can prevent the spark plugs from firing. On multi-coil, distributorless ignition systems and coil-on-plug systems; one coil failure may cause an engine to misfire, but it won't prevent it from starting. What's causing the no-start? All engines require three things to start and run: spark, fuel and compression. If any one of these isn't there, you aren't going anywhere

check connection or ground, as heat sets in, causes high resistance, and then signal will go open...verify ground and wire repair...solder is best for repair VS b*tt connector

1989 Chevy 2500 pickup. Two months ago I was driving and truck just died. After it cooled off it would crank for maybe 5 seconds then would not crank. Replaced plugs, wires, cap, rotor, and coil. Still...


You can have the coil and module tested at most auto parts stores. The module provides the ground signal to the coil. It could also be the pickup coil in the bottom of the distributor.

My truck wont start i dont know whats wrong with it but it cranks over but wont start


Have the Pick up coil tested. Take it in or try the following.
A pick-up coil, technically known as a stator, provides a low-voltage digital on-off signal to the ignition control module where it is interpreted as an RPM signal, also called PIP or profile ignition pick-up. The ignition module uses that info to decide when to fire the ignition coil. This signal from the pick-up is most likely a ground signal, but I suppose some systems might switch the positive on and off. You will have to use a special low-voltage test light(a regular 12 volt test light will not do), find the signal output wire from the pick-up, and measure the output while the engine is being cranked. You should see an on-off pulse indicated by the light blinking on and off. Remember, this is providing the stator has it's power supply and ground needed to operate, and that the distributor is turning as needed while the engine is being cranked.

Wont Start - No Spark


Older VW's and Audi's are notarious for this type of behavior. You actaully need a Vag or good diagnostic tester to tell you which plugs are mis-firing. You will need to replace a coil-pac or two. VW's issued a recall notice about 3 months ago about this issue and intends to re-imburse owners on certain models and years for coil-pac repalcement. After market coil-pacs should cost less than $50.00 each. Hope this helps.

If you are on your original fuel pump, be advised that they are known to last, on average, about 100,000 miles. Another common fault, besides that and the direct ignition cassette you have already mentioned, is the crankshaft position sensor. The prelude to total failure of this component may prevent starting or cause stalling and rough running. The ECU needs the signal from this sensor to know when to signal the DIC to fire a particular plug.
