I own a 2008 SAAB 9-3 2.0T Yesterday after work I went to start it and it gave me a complete Theft Alarm Warning and would not start. I called where I bought my vehicle and they stated to disconnect a battery terminal cable and leave disconnected for 10 minutes that this would reset the computer. I did this and it worked (and cont. to work a few times until parked at home in my garage with no problems) This morning I went to start my car, it would not start .. three times I tried this again with disconnecting the positive cable and leaving for 10 mins each. Now when I try to start my car I get a " click - click" and the engine light stays on . What does this mean ?
