SRP, thought that yesterday when the entire dash panel went completely black. Had one of my friends at work about to give a jump when he noticed one of the terminals loose. He pushed it down securely on the lead and it started. Took it to Sports Car Service (SAAB specialist here in Wilmington) they checked it - no start again. This morning getting off work at 6:00am, took about 25 minutes for it to start.
They have it again "trying to figure" what this could be - starter, ignition switch, nss or whatever.
