Customer Question

I have a 1989 saab 900 base, startred then died after driving ten feet, turns over won't stat.
I've changed the fuse, relays, fuel pump, still won't start.
The silver Jentronic smells like burnt plastic, could that be the problem?

If I run a hot wire from the battery to the fuel pump the car will run.
