my saab cuts out then wont start, if left for about 45 min it starts again.
What is wrong with my saab, it cuts out when driving or sitting, it then wont start, if i
leave the car for about 30 45 mins it will then start again, but when it cuts out again
i have to go thru the same process, i have changed the plugs but still the same.
Check the crank shaft sensor. It or another sensor may be heating up, failing, then when it cools down letting the car start then starting the cycle again, until it eventually fails completely. You could also or have your mechanic hook it up to his handheld diagnostic computer and take it for a ride until the sensor in question fails.
I changed the crank sensor in my Saab and it still would not start after being driven short distances. It was the neutral safety switch, I changed that and it has not happened again :-)
