1999 SAAB 9-3 Shutting off mid-drive... possibly electrical?
Posted by Nate F [Email] (more from Nate F) on Thu, 12 Sep 2019 09:21:54
So I’ve had a 1999 SAAB 9-3 for a little over a year and in the last two months I’ve run into a problem with it stalling mid-drive. After I was stranded in southern Oregon (about a month ago) due to it stalling and refusing to start up, I eventually replaced the fuel pump and filter after I described the problem to a couple mechanics and was advised to do so.
It ran well for a few days but still stalled a few days later (it started back up less than 10 minutes later) so I got a new fuel pump relay. Again it worked well for a few trips but when it still persisted I was told the crank shaft sensor was the problem so I replaced that last week and it’s still giving me problems.
It’s unpredictable and inconsistent when it happens but I can usually feel it start to give out when driving and one of the ways I’ve avoided it completely stalling is to drop it into a lower gear cause for whatever reason it doesn’t catch on the correct gear.
I haven’t had the money to take it to a shop and get it checked out, otherwise I would think the problem would have been correctly identified by now but I’m hoping someone out there can point me in the right direction.
I’ve also tested the battery and alternator with a multimeter, both readings came back fine.
