My 2002 saab 93 will not start or even turn the engine on occasions. It only shows the dash lights and indicators at times. When the car sits for 15-20 min it starts up in a normal fashion. this only

I have been told everything from a security issue to a ignition problem. I don't know if it's a temp. problem or if something is being reset after time. It seems to be electrical in nature. Should I see an expert?

Possibly a sticking solenoid on the starter motor..... more likely if the car will bump/tow start.

After 14 years it might be time to change your O2 Sensor. Many people think it's too difficult to change but with the right tools it's a breeze. The sensor could cost about $20-30. and you will need a special tool $10. Watch this video and other like it to get more information about your particular car. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4tAyWfdHB8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7uqmYkl7t0c

Hello I am having a problem getting my 2002 Saab 9-5 to start. There is no check engine light on at this time. It all started literally when at random times it would fail to start after driving for awhile....


Almost for sure this is the CPS sensor that is on the front of the ENGINE under the heat shield to the right. It's a bit tricky to replace, but not bad if you have small fingers, etc....

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.

Check engine light Saab 05 93 Linear


Take the car to a local auto parts place and they should be able to scan the computer and give you the code that triggered your check engine light. Most places will run this scan for free. Even if your Saab appears to be running fine it is prudent to have this checked to avoid a sudden break down. I hope this helps. Good luck.

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.

2001 SAAB 9-3 SE won't send signal to start


Is your SAAB automatic? If so, it is most likely the Neutral Safety Switch. I have had the same problem, it is very common in automatic Saab 9-3 models made in 1999-2002.

Service engine soon light


if certain that car has no sensor then carry on with self preservation (plus,leads,filter and such) as the warning light does come on sometimes to tell you to service/ take to a garage to service.
