Question about 1999 Saab 9-5

1 Answer

I can drive it no problem for a whole day. The next day I was driving down the road and get about 3 miles down the road and I was slowing down to stop at a light and it stalled when I tried to start it there was no responds it was totally dead. It happened that I stalled next to a transmission shop they came out to help with a portable battery. When they hooked it up to the battery it still would not turn over so they move the positive connecter to another place. The place they move it to was up near the windshield on the driver?s side they pulled a small cover off and under it looked like 5 or 6 small rectangular (I don?t know what they are) an next to them is the end of a threaded post and a hex nut screwed about a ½ inch down it . The transmission guys put the positive connector on it and when we tried to start it, it started right away. When they went to take it off because the car had started it shut off immediately. They had to leave it on to get it into the shop. They keep it over night and the next day it started right up with no help. Can you tell me what might be wrong?

U have a loss of power to the system due to a serious electrical issue, u will not get this solved on the fixya web site, this needs to go to the Audi dealer where they have the proper test gear and factory repair manuals to track this down, there also may be a factory service bulletin on this issue, the dealer can check that easily through the Audi service system computer link.

2002 Chevy Tahoe. Around 3 years ago the 1st


If a vehicle shuts off while driving down the road. then restarts after about 10 minutes, its a bad crank sensor or the wiring to the sensor. A check engine light may not turn on. If the light is on. You can take it to any auto parts store to have the code read by a scanner for free. Auto-zone, Advanced ETC. Its worth a try! But first check the fuel pump relay, It may be getting hot and shutting down pump. Try swapping a relay of the same type, if it is ok, thats the problem. Hope this helps!

Drive cycle has to do with normal everyday type of driving. So many stops, so many miles, fast driving, slow driving. My car went thru a drive cycle in about 38 miles on my way to work. My daughters took 3 days and about 78 miles. So just drive it like normal.

1991 Camaro RS v-6 will start but dies almost immediately


Keep it simple and replace the fuel filter first, if thr fiiler has not been replaced within 30,000 miles or 1 year. Then it's a good chance that it's going to be the fuel filter.

2001 S-10, Blowing "ECM Batt" fuse after running for about 30 min


that fuse feeds power to fuel pump relay circuit that feeds pump could be defective pump,or damaged circuit wires that shorts out! and not a good idea to put higher fuse in circuit could cause more damage to circuit! but i know when your stuck, u do what it takes,so inspect circuit related to fuse,
