Not sure on this one.....if it's "drive by wire" that means the accelerator pedal is connected to the intake electronically, and that may be where the A9 code comes from. Saturns are drive by wire and it's a common failure point for them. spark, compression and gas is all you need for the engine to run. you can put a fuel pressure gauge on the rail to determine fuel, assume that the compression is good, and pull a spark plug and ground it while cranking to see if gets a spark...

an engine needs fuel, compression, and spark to go....check those things first. Put a fuel pressure gauge on the rail, then remove a plug and ground it to see if it sparks, lastly, run a compression check on it. make sure the cam is turning as well.

it is reporting of a problem in the transmission that needs attention. run the fault codes and have the transmission serviced asap.
