The way to start is to ck your battery for 12V & clean bat terminals. Ck the ignition fuse &locate & ck the starter relay for power & ground. Jump the relay between the 2 conn (pwr/grd) See if you start.. Key on If OK r/r relay, If it doesn't work, follow the RED wire to the starter & ck for 12V there. Also ck for a good ground conn at the starter (both with good readings & clean conn. If all is well there when someone else is turning the ignition key to start, then the starter is NG If readings at the starter NG, relocate the starter relay. Good luck, Frank M
check the coil pack or the ign switch below the ignition cyclinder.. since the ignition is in the console dirt (coffee) grim gets the connector fouled up sometimes.. check those first..
if those are fine check the starter .
Start with some more basic checks? plugs, ignition wires, ignition sensors (spray em with contact cleaner) also a little more information on Exactly whats happening would be nice, for all we know its your battery, (i.e sounds, sound are important) heck shoot up the starter with a can of starter fluid....or take it to a dealership, ( I do'nt personaly work on Saabs ) they sometimes will tell you a few basic things to try and will get right to it
A SAAB dealer should be able to print one out for you. BTW that engine is practically identical to the V6 used in a caddy Catera, and Saturn Ion. Those diagrams would be the same, so you might want to search that also.
More than the starter motor it is probably the ignition block. If you have practice servicing your car you can easily test the starter motor, connecting it to battery (ensure you have neutral gear on). More likely you will need to change the ignition barrel, that is usually cause for this problem.
