Customer Question

Hi, my 2004 Saab 95 manual transmission, has developed an ignition problem, where there is a delay between turning the key to the ignition position, and the engine turning over. Some times the delay is a few seconds, sometimes it won't do anything. On the dashboard the usual lights appear, when the key turns to the ignition setting, there is a click but then nothing happens. The lights don't change, dim or flicker. Nothing happens. Any thoughts please?

Hi my name is Ross, I'm a car technician and I’ll help with your question.

Does the click come from the engine bay or from behind the dash?
