Charles, I am no tech, but i would look at the fuel pump relay. If you are not getting voltage at the pump during the start sequence, I would suspect the relay. There must be a way to bypass it to verify that the relay is the problem. Look at the townsend site documents under 'engine' or on the saabnet website to see if there is a note on this. I had one go down on my old honda and just bypassed it to verify that it was the culprit.
