sorry there is no quick fix for this. your car needs to be plugged into a saab computer for diagnostics, and be sure the technician knows EXACTLY about the starting problem, by having it noted on his test sheet, or speaking directly to the opperator. better still, be there when the test is carried out, so you are sure the car shows him the problem.

this doesnt have to be a main agent... many places will have this equipment.
