    It happened all of a sudden without warning, just died whilst driving normally so i rolled it to a safe place and tried cranking and it just turns over but won't fire up.

    My CEL came on & the local garage diagnostic showed unidentified fault. The light switched off. When it lit again I went to Saab...they think it might be the Crankshaft position sensor but will take while to order new one. Is it safe to drive in meanwhile?
