Not true. The one I bought came complete with the transponder, and the remote and was cut for my car for $100. No fob necessary.

So you got the the type 2; Sorry, but you said Transponder Key which is the type 1; thanks for the clarification a $100 is a good price for a type 2 complete; Did it come with the back cover as well?

I bought a key with the electronics off of ebay and then had a key cut by my dealer since the electronics cost the most out of it.

Sorry for the confusion, yes it is a type 2 and the key came complete including the back cover for $100.

i looked that that page but it looked like there was only one order form and the least amount of keys you could buy were two? It didn't even list prices. So did you have to call them to order just one key?

I called them and told them my situation and they were very helpful. I don't think that they readily advertise that they will do just the keys. They are more into reprogramming the entire security box when you lose both your keys or have a malfunction. Just give them a ring and see what they can do for you.

Default Key programming

Hello, I recently bought a 2006 9-5 wagon that came with one key. The dealer (not Saab) had a second key cut and sent it to me with the remote and told me I need to get it programmed. My mechanic has a Tech 2 scanner but he probably hasn't done a Saab key before. What do I need to tell him and will the original key still work after the second key is programmed?

you have to have both keys with the car when you program it. the Tech 2 provides a very good step by step guide to program new key. Mine was done in like 5 minutes. Took longer to get the tech 2 hooked up.

Default Key programming

My wife (now ex-wife, but not because she lost the key ) lost one of my keys. I recently ordered a new key from a dealer and now I need to get it programmed. I've seen many posts that claim this should only cost about $60, but my local independant service place claims it's more like $150. Unfortunately, the closest "authorized" Saab Service Center is 450 miles away and I don't want to drop $150 if I don't have to. Now my question...do I need an existing programmed key in order to program the new key? If I somehow managed to lose my last programmed key could I have the car towed to my local shop and have them program the new key, or would I be screwed?

As I understand it you would be screwed. You need to have one working key in order to add more keys. An indy charged me $60 when I added a new key.

Is this along the lines of; "I have a good friend who has lost his only key..."?

If there is no key, then I think you're in a bit of bother. If you have one key then this is what I've done:

If you have lost all keys, you are not totally screwed, but it will cost you more. Most places will charge you around $3000 to get going again. Clearcom Tech will charge you about $800. Just go to http://www.lostsaabkeys.com

They have instructions on how to remove your TWICE module, and ship it to them for programming. Good Luck. JFP

Most of us just buy a used twice ( or pull one from a junk yard ( if they have a key) they have no idea what it is. Got one and a key for 100 bucks for a customer. and reprogram all the other keys to the new TWICE.

Your solution requires that the donor TWICE module comes with a donor key as well to start the process. Does it not? The Clearcom guys will give you two new keys programmed to your TWICE box if finding a donor TWICE module with key is not an option.

There are 3 people breaking 9-3 and 9-5 cars right now in the classifieds. I know each has a key and twice to spare.

Not disagreeing with you at all, just wanted people to know there is a much cheaper solution.

Well, I didn't want to risk it so I emailed to confirm the programming fee from the first independant service place I called and the price mysteriously increased to $188 plus tax. When I asked why they ignored me. So, I called another shop way across town (Albuquerque, NM) and found a great guy who programmed my key for $48 and spent some extra time with me to identify a strange leak from my cooling system that produced an orange wax like drip. The leak was pooling on top of the transaxle and eventual dripped off onto my garage floor like orange candle wax, weird. Anyway, now I've got two keys! If anyone needs Saab repair in ABQ, you might want to check out Jeff's Saab Shop...he was really great.

if you havnt figured it out yet check your coolant return line from the turbo as well as the coolant return hose from the radiator. My return line leaked when I changed turbos and didn't have it tightened enough, ended up adding some Teflon tape to the threads and re-tightened and that stopped my leak
