I replaced the thermostat but the code reset. Chris from California confirmed what I suspected, that the ecm wants to see the temp rise at a specific rate. Chris also stated that it is important to use only oem thermostats in this car. I suspect this was the p... Trouble codes: P1117 (manufacture specific air/fuel metering).

1997 Mercury Mountaineer 5.0L No Start VIN: 4M2DU55P4V
Apparently on this vehicle, the CMP sensor aids in more accurate timing of fuel and spark, but it is not necessary to start or run. Also the CKP voltage of 1.5 to 1.7 volts is more than adequate. The PCM was the culprit. Thanks for the help Tom

I'll close this as a fix, however the car was never "perfect". I borrowed another SAAB from a local dealer, balanced and switched the wheels and tires from one vehicle to another, not knowing what to expect. Upon driving the car, the vibration was everywhere...

thanks for the excellent responses. you kept me from getting bit by something i didn't know. as it turned out, there was a logical connection between hitting a post and a dead fuel pump. when it hit the post, the fuel pump actually fell off of its mount in t...

2006 Volvo S60 T5 2.4L steering angle sensor VIN: YV1RS59236
Ok Really looks like a bad clock spring customer declined repair till next month. I was told by the dealer they sell the steering angle sensor and clock spring together. I assume it only needs a clock spring from replies here. Neither item needs coding.
