    New Member Introductions.
    Power door locks work intermittently. Fuse#16 is ok. Any suggestions on other things to check?

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    Last week, my son could not get back in 2001 SAAB 9-5 SE 3.0L V-6 (doors electronically locked with key button) after working-out. AAA used a tool to unlock rear driver's side door... setting off car alarm. My son jumped-in and started car with key to make alarm silent, then drove home. Next...
  3. Passengers door central locking not working

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I have the 9-3 1.9TiD Vector Sport and the central locking on the passenger door is not working, nor is the Internal light when the passenger door is opened.

  5. Love my SAABs - hate remote key locks

    Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)
    I love my SAABs - I have a 2000 9-3 Convertable and have just bought a 2006 9-5 1.9 Tid Vector Estate which is brilliant except for the remote central locking. The central locking works when the key is inserted in the door, and will unlock remotely, but not lock remotely. I have been following...

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi Guys, My door locks are driving me mad, it's both o/s door locks they work mostly fine in the cold weather but as soon as it's warm neither of them will lock and unlock. The rear is worse than the front but being both on the same side it's a right pain when they both won't unlock. I have...

    Hello My name is Max, I live in the United Stated and about 2-months ago I purchased my first Saab, a 2004 Saab 9-3 Convertable with about 65,000 miles on it. About 2-weeks after driving the car off the lot the head gasket blew but the GMC dealer was kinds enough to make the repairs for me...
  8. No power locks

    Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    None of the power locks in a newly purchased '99 9-3 work and I've traced the problem down to the TWICE unit itself. Swap in a different TWICE and the locks work, but of course the car won't start! (not a good trade off!) Is it possible to disable the locks logically or is it probably the...
  9. Auto door locks

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    I'm told my doors should lock after a certain speed but they dont. Is this a fault or is it something that needs setting up first with Tech II? cheers
  10. Door locks not working

    Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    Some advise please.. Both of my door locks have been a little sticky since i got the car, year and a half ago.. Never been a major issue though, a little wiggle did the job.. During the really cold weather recently, the locks were great, seemed to work fine.. Now that we're all thawed out again...

    Hi My '06 9-5 Estate was stolen recently after a house burglary. The vehicle was recovered, but the locks now need changing. After speaking with the repair garage this morning i've been told that they haven't been able to source any replacement locks from Saab and couldn't give any...

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    My key fob still turns the alarm on and off but the door locks have stopped responding. Using the key locks/unlocks the drivers door, but the other locks don't follow. Any ideas what the problem is? Cheers Dave

    Hi everyone, I have a power door lock poltergeist. My car automatically unlocks itself. This has happened three times in a week. I lock my drivers door with the key, trunk and passenger locks engage. I have parked in the same spot next to my house for many years, I lock the car at night and...
  15. 1995 9000 aero ignition sets off door locks

    Saab 9000 (1984 - 1998)
    I have a 1995 9000 Aero. When I turn on the ignition it often sets off the automatic door locks and interferes with the engine turning over. Seems to put extra load on the battery and the engine at first hesitates and then turns over slowly before picking up speed and firing up. Since rear...

    (Repost to the correct place) Any of you had to get the locks replaced? I've got a 2000 V Plate, 93 auto.. The key is very bad in the drivers door, sometimes it won't even go in, other times it goes in but doesn't turn, others it goes in and takes alot of wiggling to get it out!! Passenger door...

    Hi All Please help! My 900SE 1996 has a problem with the door locks. In deadlocking the car and trying to move the key back to the upright postion it is really really stiff - to the point where I do not want to use the deadlocking. In addition to this I am unable to unlock the doors at all...

    Saab 9-3 Sedan/Combi/TurboX/AWD(2003+)/Conv(2004+)
    Hi, I've just got home from work and went to close the door and it just bounced back open again as if hitting the seatbelt. I've checked the lock and the catch isn't fully open. I've tried using the key manually, the buttons on the fob and the switch in the car and nothing helps. To make...
