  2. Auto unlock won't unlock after I fit new battery, driver's door lock.

    Evening all! Today I fitted a new battery to my 2006 Saab Linear TiD 1.9 Estate. Which was nice, but now the central locking has developed an issue: all the doors lock as normal after I start driving (anti-hijack feature), but they no longer automatically unlock after I stop the car and switch...

I was expecting the car battery to be flat ... but...
  4. 1992 900s Intermittent Central Locking

    C900 Workshop
    Central locking works about 40% of the time. When it does all doors lock/unlock and do it with gusto. I've been searching around the forums, seems to be a lot of info about this for newer generation cars. I found less info for the C900, but it looks like it could be the ECU? If so, where can I...

  9. 1997 NG900 Central Locking Issues

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi, I am the proud owner of a 1997 Saab 900s coupe and while there have been no shortage of things to catch up on that were neglected by the previous owner(s?), the central locking and the alarm have worked beautifully in the year I have had the car. Then, this past weekend, ironically the same...
  10. 9-3 conv central locking automatically unlocking

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hi, My 1998 9-3 convertible has developed a problem with the central locking system which causes it to open the doors at random, meaning I can't leave the car locked and guarantee it will remain secure, which is obviously quite a big problem! I've done some searching around on the net and found...
  11. Central locking not working

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Saab 9-3 2001 2.0t. Had a cold snap recently and the central locking has stopped working, or more specifically the key has. I have replaced the battery to no avail. Still not functioning. I have also noticed that when I withdraw the key the radio stays on, which is somewhat odd. Cheers
  12. Battery Drain. The culprit? "Central Locking"

    C900 Workshop
    So, one consistent problem with the '89 Conv has been that the battery will drain itself dead after sitting for a few days. I took to Youtube in search of a solution and found this video from Scotty Kilmer: Scotty's videos are entertaining, informative, and to-the-point; I would definitely...

  16. Door lock actuators

    9-5 Workshop
    I have a '98 9-5 SE and need to replace one of the rear door lock actuators. I notice the door lock has the GM stamp on it and I was wondering if anyone if the door lock actuator is a common part with other GM vehicles?
