Asked by Oct 25, 2013 at 08:06 PM about the 1999 Saab 9-5 4 Dr SE 2.3t Turbo Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The Radio and all the electrical instruments are working fine, including the air and heat.  Do I just need a new battery?

If your radio and electrical instruments are still working that means the battery is ok. Did the car cough and sputter before cutting off? If you have lots of gas in the tank it may be the fuel pump.
