Thank you very much for both replies. I am still waiting for the problem to happen again so I can come back with some good info. I will say, though, with the 1st answer, I originally dismissed the fuel pump only because I hear it power up when I turn the key to the on position right before starting. I now keep my fuel pressure gauge in the car so if it happens again I will be prepared to check it. The second answer (crank sensor) I did not consider, aw well. I have no experience with Saab dist. Ignition system but I do with GM products. I have never seen this as an intermittent problem. The car was always dead until the sensor was replaced. Also, at least with the GM cars I worked on, I never knew how to check between whether the problem was a bad crank/cam sensor or the control module. I always bought the sensor first because it was cheap and if that did not fix the car, I put the control module in. Thanks again for the replies.
