    Hi I have a 2005 9-3 Arc convertible and I need a second key made since I just have one and it's starting to come apart.

  4. Key fob/ignition lock/electronics stay on

    9-5 Workshop
    Took my car to have the shifter slider replaced. We do not have a Saab mechanic in town. They had trouble getting her back together. When I brought her home, I could not turn her all the way off. The radio remained on (punched it off) and the door gonged when I opened it. I could not lock...
  5. Comfort Package Vert Open/Close

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I don't have the comfort package open/close feature. As I understand it, I'd need a completely different ECU to enable it. Has anyone added this feature aftermarket? For clarity, I'm referring mostly to activating the convertible top using the aux button on the key fob.

    9-5 Workshop
    First, I am new here so be gentle. I have a 2004 95 wagon that my buddy gave me with only one key. The remote doesn't work at all. Battery tested good, but still no go.

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi there, first off let me say that I did as much googling and searching of the forum as I could, but either the thread didn't exactly fit my situation, or I had no clue what I was reading. Sorry if this is a redundant thread. Anyway, I got a 04 9-3 Linear in January. It came with one key fob...

    I just brought a 2005 9-3 and I really like it. I have questions about the key fob. My key fob is original and the rubber body has broken down. I want to replace the key fob and buy a second since I have just the single key. It appears that there are two ways to go. Buy an original key fob...
  15. Do I have to have a key fob?

    9000 Workshop
    My car didn't come with a key fob and the radio was cut out, and I heard that this might cause it to have starting troubles. Is this true? Can I use newer Saab fobs (all in ones like for the 9-3), or only the teardrop kind?
  16. Broken Magnet on Key Fob

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    The magnet on the key fob circuit board is broken. Otherwise, it's in one piece and the key can remotely lock and unlock the car fully. Of course, the car won't start because the ignition is dependent on the magnet. Is there another way to turn the ignition?
