Saab 2001 93 Convertibale starting issues

I have a 2001 93 that does not start all the time. The power comes on but when I try and turn over the engine nothing! I mean nothing not even a sound. I have to wait sometimes up to an hour before trying again and it starts. It starts fine first thing in the AM but when I drive somehwere and come out it wont start. I have gone to the dealer and they found nothing on the diagnostics. What could the problem be and cost to fix?

Thanks

Check the coil pack or the ign switch below the ignition cyclinder.. since the ignition is in the console dirt (coffee) grim gets the connector fouled up sometimes.. check those first..
if those are fine check the starter .

Our saab was driving fine, we parked and went shopping after an hour came out and it wont start. Replaced the battery and it still wont start. It is a manual so we are able to pop the clutch and it...


Sounds like an immobilizer/alarm issue...only way to properly diagnose is with a Saab factory scan tool...unfortunately..
Try another key if you have one....also lock and unlock the vehicle a few times with the key fob...or door key to insure the alarm/immobilizer has been turned off.

Hope this helps!

2004 Saab 93: A/C doesnt turn off, car now wont start


remove the AC relay to shut the AC off all the time. Not sure why it wont start but you may havea security lockout. Fully charge the battery to proceed.

1995 Saab 900 Same problem with stalls dies no warning


It appears to me to be more of a loose or damaged battery or ground connection, either on the battery, the starter, or a power wire somewhere. Next time you have dim lights, get under the hood and wiggle wires around, to see if you can get them to brighten up. When you do hit the right wire, you'll find the problem.

Saab 93 diesel not starting


Being a diesel, Your car has Glowplugs in it, no sparkplugs, when you turn the key on, you need to let it sit for at least ten seconds so your glowplugs can warm, that would solve your cranking issue, as far as the dash freakout you had, most likely it was error in your ECU, and having a dead battery means something is either left on or there is a ground somewhere in your wiring, If you have alarm system equipped it could be a wire on that or a number of other things, not a pro at Saab by far but im relating to problems i have had with Ford. Not sure if it works on Saab but its worth a try, Hold your Trip Meter down and turn ignition to start while holding, the background should come up with a bunch of number, and you yank the Book out of the glovebox and correlate info from your dash to whats written in the manual! Hope i shed some light.

2001 SAAB 9-3 SE won't send signal to start


Is your SAAB automatic? If so, it is most likely the Neutral Safety Switch. I have had the same problem, it is very common in automatic Saab 9-3 models made in 1999-2002.
