Possible the injector ground driver circuit within the computer is defective, injector fuse or injector wiring

It is a sedan. Tried to get a rent a tester to check for code, but none of the auto part stores have one. My son drove to work one day, and when he ot off it just turned over and wouldn't start. I rules out the fuel pump and had spark. Noid light test failed. I might have to tow it to a saab shop to have them test for codes.

Use a test light to check for 12 volts at the injector. If there is, then they are not being grounded by the ecm. If there is not, you need to check the fuses.

What is the fuel pressure? How did you determine the pump is good?

You also need to check the crank sensor as its main function is to toggle the injectors.

It was cord to the brain. The clip was bent and the connection came loose. Thanks too for your input. Steve
