Well, we did ask some questions, that you didn't answer, to get it to the next step......

Obviously, something happened since you drove it in, and it now doesn't start, and has all those codes....

We are not there, so it'* hard to say, what happened...I mean in a situation like this, your tech obviously is in over his head,,,,,,hopefully he keeps up his end of the bargain, if the Saab dealer finds he did something wrong....

The only thing I didn't answer was if he sprayed carb cleaner into the intake to verify lack of fuel.

Thank you.

I will definitely post results.

I finally got it back today. It was done yesterday, but when I went to pick it up, the climate control fan wasn't working. They kept it, checked it in the morning, and it worked fine. RRRRRRRRRRRR Oh well.

It appears that when changing the plugs, they pinched a wire under the manifold. Grounding out something that shouldn't have been grounded!

Three hours labor to repair, and one fuse.

My thanks to those that responded. I truly appreciate you taking the time to address my issues.

Many regards.

Funny, but it was a similar situation, that caused me to become an auto tech....

I had a leaking rear valve cover on my Eurosport, with 2.8 engine.....had a GM shop do it....got it back, and then I had a check engine light....when they put the new valve cover gasket/old valve cover back on, they trapped the O2 sensor wire under the valve cover......it eventually cut into the wire and grounded it out, causing the CE light....

Fact is, someone showed me how to get flash codes...when I found out it was a code 13, I thought maybe they disconnected it and forgot to reconnect it....I found the wire under the valve cover.....brought it to them the next day.....they were booked for the week.....so I "convinced" them to give me a loaner until it was fixed right.....got my car back the next day.....

Figured I could diagnose these cars , and became a tech....
