2001 saab 9 3 won't start. I can jump start it

2001 saab 9 3 won't start. I can jump start it (it's a standard transmission obviously) but it won't start with the key. Sounds like the starter is trying to engage but the engine is not turning over at all. It's a 2.0T.

If you can jump start it, I am leaning towards a new battery. I recently bought a new battery as my 6-year old Optima (red top) refused to hold charge. Jump-starts and compression starts (rough on transmission) were OK.

Sounds like your starter motor is bad. Is the starter motor spinning?

'01 SAAB 9-5 won't jump start


Are you sure you had the polarity right on the jumper cables? Some cars had positive ground, you know!

Whatever the polarity, you may have a bad ground ... such as rust at the connection. Try measuring with a voltmeter between one battery terminal and ground, then the other battery terminal and ground. Do the same measurements between the battery and the engine block. If you get a difference, you have found the problem! There is also a possibility that the vehicle had a "fusable link" which is designed to burn out if there is an overload!
