2002 Saab 9-5 Aero, Start Issue - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I have a 2002 Saab 9-5 Aero, 5-speed, with a touch above 90K on it that was running perfectly until circumstances caused me to leave it parked in western Pennsylvania for four months. Not surprisingly, the 2-year-old battery was a "goner." However, with the battery replaced the car still won't start. It will crank, and the fuel is making it to the engine, but no start. Anyone, any ideas? Does the fuel making it to the engine rule out a fuel pump failure? What about the ignition cassette?
Barring the purest of coincidences, the HINT here seems to suggest the problem occurred from the car just sitting so long.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I'm trying to relocate to my native Pittsburgh region for family reasons and knowledgeable SAAB techs are few and far between, likely meaning a very long tow.
