Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Car Model: Saab 900SE
Started car yesterday - no problem. Drove round corner and stopped at crossing. Car cut out and would not restart. When turned key sounded similar to when immobiliser on but it wasn't on and lights on dashboard said check engine. Lights then went very dim on dash. Couldn't get to start but then after 10 minutes tried again. Started! Got into parking space and switched off engine. Tried to start and same as above! After many tries called the AA. AA mechanic came. Tested battery, looked at points and everything else couldn't get it going. Thought could be electrics and tested all fuses said was no problem with these. Spent good hour but no success. Car still wouldn't start although did manage to get it going twice and full brightness on lights on dash for few seconds but dimmed again and wouldn't start minute car switched off. AA left saying thought may be ignition switch and I should get it to garage to check. Windows were open and these could not be closed- still open, as won't close even with key in and switched to start position and very dim lights on dash.
I am in Glasgow centre - any ideas details of decent garage so appreciated?
