Died on freeway and would not restart ? When you turned the key what happened ? Did the starter engage and spin the engine ? Or nothing happened . Why did you charge the battery ? Did you drain it trying to start it or it drained when driving the vehicle an it killed it ? Before replacing parts did you have it diagnosed or did you just replace parts ?

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 .

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.

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.
