Having problems with your Saab 900 ?

I have a 1997 saab 900s it had been having some trouble idling when the gas was low( i believe this was from trash in the tank/ fuel filter issue.) now, without any warning the engine quit. i still have power, and the starter's good. all the levels appear to be good as well. the engine simply won't catch.

FIrst thing i would do is check fuel pressure on the rail. IT should be on top of engine near spark plug holes. THere is a valve that looks like a bicycle tube valve, press it and see if you have gas. Be careful its under pressure. You really need to put a measuring device on there and see if you have correct pressure.

The check engine light keeps coming on in my 2004 Chevy Tahoe. At first when it came on, it would show a warning message that states Reduced Engine Speed and the Tahoe wouldn't have any power.

Engine wont turn over. No power is going to the "command wire" to the starter when we hit the ignition switch. We can "jump" the command wire on the back of the fuse box, and hear the solenoid click. We have replaced the starter relay in the fuse box, but still no power to the command wire. It seems that the probem is somewhere from the fuse box to the ignition switch. How can we tell if the ignition switch is bad, and not routing power to the solenoid?

While driving down the highway, my 2004 Chevy Tahoe displayed a reduce engine power message. The accellerator pedal at that point had no effect on the engine even though it was still running. My manual told me to check the gas cap by lossening it then retightening it. It corrected the problem for about 30 miles, then the solid engine light came back on with the same message. After going through the gas cap procedure again several times, the light and message warning went out. I made it home but

Fusable Link Two times in the past 6 months I have had the link blow on me. When the link blows the instrument panel goes blank and the engine shuts off but the headlights, power windows/locks, power seats and horn still work properly. It seems that everything electrical on the car works except anything tied to the ignition. However, if the key is inserted into the ignition, you can operate the windows yet the radio does not along with the starter. Not even a click.


When a fusable link burns, it is an indication of a dead short to ground. With that said you have to find the short to repair the problem. This can be tedious and time consuming. A wiring diagram for that circut will be an asset. Wish you success in ... 1989 Chrysler New Yorker
