Hello, have you tried to unhook the negative side of the battery for about 10 minutes and then go from there . It should reset the computer completely .

The 12 volt battery(LUCAS 065/3) on my FORD FIESTA 1100cc is 4 years old, in that time i have only driven 1,600 miles as my journeys are usually very local. I make sure i use the car twice a week to keep...


Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.

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.

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.

On my saab vector ignition key functions


I have a Saab 93 Vector and although my key does not have that function my manual says the following; 'Press once - Turns on exterior and cabin lighting, for 30 sec, or turns off lighting. Deactivates panic alarm. Hold and press for more than 2 sec - Cars with car alarm: panic alarm (activates alarm manually).
There is another section that says the button turns off lights and larm when activated and the car remains locked. The panic alarm can only be activated when the car is stationary and it will be silenced when the car is driven away.

Hope that makes sense. Enjoy your Saab 93 - I know I do every day.
