GenuineSaab I have seen a few of the starter relays fail. If you try it they simply arc internally and light up. Simple fix is to swap it with another in the board to test.

Intermittent starting problems

I have an '97 9-5 Auto with the 4cyl

Most of the time the car starts fine. But, 1 of 10 times or so the starter doesn't engage. Battery is fine. Garage replaced the neutral safety switch but that doesn't seem to fix the problem.

When it doesn't start I just have to give it 5 to 25 minutes and then it will start. Moving the gear selector from park to neutral and back doesn't help.

Any thoughts, suggestions, comments? The guys at the import garage seem at a loss. The Saab dealer in town is absolutely worthless. Love the car, but I have a two year old and it's winter. I can't keep it if I am not confident it's going to start when I have my little girl in the car w/ me.
