This issue has been discussed on many other SAAB forums. If your car would start after you let it sit for a while then I would bet you it is faulty crancshaft position sensor (CPS). I had this problem myself when computer wouldn't diagnose it. I replaced it myself on my '01 9-5 V6 engine and if fixed the problem. Hope it helps. KP.
