    My son had my 2007 9-3 convertible yesterday. He went to get food and when he came out the fob wouldn't work. He couldn't even open the car and the manual key did not open it. So, he was locked out. Tried new 2032 battery to no avail. Finally called AAA (in Virginia) and they came and opened the...

    I first noticed it on the 'Spare' key, the plastic has become soft and when I took the Key out of the Fob it was covered in Green Goo. I thought it might be the battery that had leaked and went to get the handbook to see how to replace the battery. That's when I noticed that the regularly used...

    When i bought the car i am pretty certain both keys for it worked with no problems, last week i noticed one had stopped working so i opened it up to find out the type of battery it needed. I ordered two new batteries, 1 for a spare, which arrived today. Having fitted the battery, the right way...

    Hi, I have 2002 SAAB 93 and have got a problem with the key fobs. Yesterday I couldn’t switch the car fully off (engine stop but nothing else). You usually get that clunk when you turn the key off, this didn’t happen. I could remove the key, but not lock the doors or switch the alarm on. I...

    My car battery went flat last night, so flat the remotes stopped working. Is this normal? How do I convince the remotes to start talking to the car again? All internet search results regarding batteries and key fobs result in information about flat key fob batteries... So I'm hoping saabscene...

    Hi thought I'd just pass this on.... One of my remote keyfob's stopped locking the car....so I bought a replacement off of e-bay for a fiver and instead of getting it reprogrammed for £35 at a dealer, I removed one of the micro-switches and replaced the faulty one... cheap cheap cheap. Only a...

    Hi, I've only got the one key and fob for my 2000 9-3 and it is making me twitchy. They are separate items, and I was wondering what the best/most cost effective way was to go about getting a replacement? Also, would it be possible to get a key and fob as a single unit? Cheers, doidge
