I parked my car at my driveway and went on Vacation for 4 days. After my Vacation I try to start the Engine in the morning and the Starter turned but no Ignition.
I check everything out and found no Voltage to the Fuel Injectors.
I changed the Crankshaft Position sensor and have also Sparks. It will run on independent fuel source
I don't know what controls the Injectors. Is it the ECU or the twice system?
Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

Check green/red wire coming out of Ign Dis Module it supplies power to injectors. If you have power and no ground then ECU is possibly faulty.
I'm confused your post started no power know no ground. Let me know

Are you checking at injector terminal? If yes then ECU must be grounding the pulses indicate injector on/off. Can you feel or hear injector click? Can you get a noid light hook up will tell if ECU is firing injector

All at the same time!

I did not see where you did a fuel pressure test, to find out if fuel pump is working or not, plus check relays located under the d/s dash panel, just below where dice unit is located, saab ecm do not go that easy, & saab system is all about power to grounds so do not mess with it if u do not understand it, check basic system first, do not get all technical, saab's are expensive to repair if u blow the ecm module.
