  1. Classic Saab 9-5 (1997 - 2009)

  7. Classic Saab 9-3/GM900 (1994 - 2002)/Conv ( -2003)
    I accidentally left the lights on in my 1999 Saab 9-3 convertible and the battery died so (understandably) the electronic key won't unlock the car. The problem is, my mechanical key will not unlock either door (??) so I can't get in to the car to pop the hood for a jump. Any thoughts?

    Last June the control unit in the drivers door for my 9-3 SS failed, resulting in the the door not opening from inside or out and all switches on the door being dead.
