    key remote not working

    Hi
    I have a 2005 95 sedan and the remote control on the key just stopped working.
    The spare key is the same, I changed the battery, still nothing.
    I can unlock and lock the car with the key and all the door locks work.
    I can drive the car, everything appears to work ok, but the led in the middle of the dash is not on, I cant be sure it was working before the problem started so this may be irrelevant.
    My first thought was a twice module issue, but if it was was I would expect other functions controlled by it would not work as well.

    Any suggestions please

    Thanks for the advice
    Thankfully I found the problem, I took my car to a saab gentleman where he found the lock barrel is not popping up correctly, all I need to do is remove it and clean and lubricate it

    Usually when the lock barrel doesn't 'pop up' when the key is removed, the radio stays on.
