Question about 1999 Saab 9-5

Check engine light on 1999 Saab 9-5 Turbo

I have replaced the fuel pump, the ignition coils, the plugs, the crank sensor, the battery, the gas cap.....and the check engine light hasn't gone off....any suggestions? If I disconnect the battery will it go away when I re-connect it? UGH - this car costs WAY too much to maintain.
Thanks for any help

Your fuel pump could be on its way out; check under the back seat when the ignition is turned if the FP could be heard, also check the fuel pressure at the fuel rail under the hood. You can just pull the valve cap when ignition is on to see if gas flows out of the valve. The CPS could be the problem as well if it's an auto check the neutral switch to. And check all vacuum lines for wear or break and replace if needed.

My saab 95 won't start I think its the Direct Ignition how can I check it


Need year and 4 or 6 cyl. Assuming 4 cyl, need to know year and miles. Is the check engine light on? Easiest way is to swap out. Have to be careful with the DIC. Must be attached to plugs, must be upright. Could get 4 plugs, make sure it is up right and attached to computer. See if there is spark. Usually foul electrical smell if DIC fails. Also could be CPS (Crank Shaft Positioning Sensor).

Engine cranks but won't start


Check the fuses/relays for the fuel pump and make sure you are getting gas to the fuel injectors. Also check your fuel filter....if it is clogged it could be stopping the gas from getting to the injectors....good luck

Saab 95 1998 - wont start


The most common problem is the Direct ignition cassette, followed by the crankshaft position sensor. I am assuming that it cranks, but won't start.

1999 Saab 9-5 SE


I own a  99' 9-5 V6 turbo SE.  Had the same thing.  Started smelling gas in the car, sometimes.  Instead of not starting it died (as in the engine stopped) on a barren stretch of road at night.  Towed to the Saab dealer: Conclusion?  Replaced the fuel pump and sending unit. Don't ask how much.
