SOURCE: I lost my Saab Car Key, where can I get a

lostsaabkeys.com is the way to go......they're very fast and convenient. You only need to unscrew the driver's seat whch require and allywrench and take out the twice module send it to him and when they get it.......they can do it and send it off to you expressing shipping. So it would literally take only a week to get everything done. I love the key to my 02 saab 9-5 and i asked the dealer for the rplacement and he said $1200. But lostsaabkeys.com only cost 600 dollars. they very good and prompt and recomment it to anyone with a saab car.

SOURCE: Saab 9-3 SE won't start!!!

My boyfriend was having the same problem with his 2002 9-3 and in reading the user manual i found the following...when the car wouldn't start this morning he tried it and instead of having to wait 15 minutes for it to start, it started right up. Oh and his screen didn't give an error.

Electronic starting interlock
(immobilizer)
When the key is inserted in the ignition, a
signal is sent to the receiver. If the signal is
verified, the engine can be started.
Each time the key is removed from the ignition,
the electronic immobilizer is activated.
If a fault is detected (e.g. in the transmitter)
”KEY NOT ACCEPTED” will appear on the
SID.
In this case, you can still start the car if you
turn the ignition key to ON and press one of
the buttons on the key.
Take the car to an authorized Saab dealer to
have the system checked.

If the car does not start
If the text "KEY NOT ACCEPTED" appears
on the SID when the engine refuses to start,
the trouble may be a fault in the transponder
of the key or in the receiver of the ignition
switch. Proceed as follows:
• Turn the key back to the LOCK position.
• Turn the key to the ON position.
• Press one of the buttons on the remote
control (the LED on top of the dash stops
flashing).
• Start the engine.
Try the other key. If it works, the trouble is in
the first key.
Call on an authorized Saab dealer for
inspection and correction

See if your getting spark at the ign. coil first (passengers side on that year) if you are change the crank shaft sensor making sure you mount it as close to the engine as possible so it never gives you trouble again.

Car won't start. it tries to turn over, but just doesn't .battery replaced several months ago so it's not that. The red "GEN" light pops up. Is that the generator signal? Manual doesn&


Interesting. They haven't used generators in over 50 yrs.
But yes that was the warning light for the generator.
If you have a volt meter that would tell you what the system is doing.
If the engine will not crank, and the battery is fully charged, you would need to check the connections at the starter for voltage and ground.
And the red warning lights would normally come on until the engine starts.

I have 2001 mercury courage replace alternator 2wks ago ran great. Now today will not start. Tried to start and it would click when I turned key now won't do anything doesn't have any power....


Could quite possibly be you have a bad starter. I would have it tested. Could also be a bad battery. If, when jumping it, you used too high of a voltage, could have shorted out a wire somewhere

Why won't my 1997 Saturn SL start?


you have spark at the plugs ..thats something

spray stay you mug
into the throttle body see if the motor will cough

tank needs draining and have fresh fuel
fuel pump has a filter and fuel relay

crack the fuel line connection to the rail to see if there is fuel reaching the rail and correct pressure

if sitting 6 years.. not being run regularly
do a compression test
lifters may be stuck
rings may have lost tension

Your first problem is to find out why the intermittent no-power problem. Honestly, that sounds like a loose conmnection somewhere. check all your grounds for clean and tight conditions Also, battery connections and alternator connections. Double check your power distribution center for any loose wires or poor connections. Once you solve that problem, then you can diagnose the other problems with poor idle and temp. gauge.

Sounds to me like the starter or starter relay, OR did you check all the fuses? When the starter doesn't click or turn over the engine it is likely a problem with it or the power supply to it. Start with the easy thing. check the fuses, then the relay.
The P0300 is usually caused by something other than the spark plugs or coils. A fuel/oxygen sensor can cause this code. I would say that doesn't have anything to do with not starting.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

CAR WON'T START NOT GETTING ANY GAS


My girlfriend has a 2004 Alero and she just had the same problem less than a year ago. It turned out to be the fuel pump. This can only be replaced by a shop since you have to remove the gas tank to get to it.

If the engine cranks easily and doesn't even sound like its trying then you probably have the same problem. Sorry, but its not going to be a cheap fix. You can replace it yourself, but unless you really want to deal with dropping the gas tank, I recommend you take it in.
