CAR CUTTING OUT

1998 SAAB 9-5

Electrical problem
1998 Saab 9-5 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive 120000 miles

this problem has appeared 3 times and all I think related.
first I had problems starting the car, apon which I was told an earth wire was installed. The car performed for about 3 month untill one day will driving the car cut out. This time the car would start when turning the key but instantly cutout again. I returnrd it to the mecanic and he serviced and soldered the wire this time and this got me away again for 2 weeks, but the same problem has happened today. While driving everything died. The car sounds like it fires when the key is turned but as soon as it kicks it dies again. Hav you an idea of the problem. Your help is greatly needed. I dont know if its electric, fuse engine. Im clueless
