Take to the dealer. They replace one for free since it's under warranty. Check your manual see if it's still under warranty in your area. Mine just died about 2 month ago. I have a '95 SAAB 900SE. They try to charge it but won't work so just replace a new one for free. Didn't even charge me labour, but I did wait for 3 hours though. The one they gave me doesn't seem to be a factory battery (well, it looks different and is a third party brand) but it comes with 6 year warranty. : ) good luck, GarDian gardian_gnopsamail.com On Fri, 23 Apr 1999 00:18:28 GMT, trikster2nopsamejanews.com wrote: > > > >I think I've trashed my 1996 SAAB 900's battery. > >It won't take a charge, perhaps because I left it sitting for a couple of >months without starting it. > >Yes I know, I'm an idiot. > >Anyway, should I just go to the dealer and get a genuine saab battery or would >I be better off getting a 3rd party batter (any recommendations?). > >The battery that came with the car says "Made by Varta Sweden".
