I ALWAYS suspect the battery first. With a fleet of 6 vehicles on the road and friends and relatives needing help, I caughed up $19.95 and bought a HF battery load tester. Old fashioned tech with wires that heat up as the load is applied and old analog meter. Tells me what I have. Batteries are very failure prone and they are in a hot environment in a Saab. If you want long battery life move the battery to the trunk.
Also inspect your battery cables carefully. Internal corrosion can be another problem.
