  1. Key Not Accepted

    9-5 Workshop
    Hello, So I've read a lot of other topics on this but none of the tips in there seem to have helped. My fiance's 2001 Saab 9-5 keeps giving the "Key Not Accepted" error. Now, the display is also going but is somewhat readable. I have tried putting the key in, turning it to 'On', and pressing...
  2. New Metal key...how much?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I've been thinking maybe I should have a backup metal key to go along with my second FOB. If I were to lose my only key and something happened to the electric locks i'm screwed. Does anyone know how much that costs at the dealership? can they still make copies? and can it be done on the spot...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Hey All, I've recently had an issue when turning off my car. I put the car in park, pull out the key, and expect the doors to unlock and the lights to come on, like they're supposed to do. But that has stopped happening. Then when I go to remove my key and open the door, the car dings like...

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Weirdest thing happened to me today. Replaced passenger side inner light due to someone backing into it. Got everything back together and go to test out the lock...it won't turn.

  6. Key fob came open now key won't turn

    Saab 9-2X, 9-4X & 9-7X Workshop
    The key fob came open a while back and we glued it back together. It worked fine. IT came apart again and we put it back together and when I tried to put the key in the ignition it only went half way. At this point it still worked to lock and unlock the car. We have a spare non-remote key that...

  8. key transponder question

    9-5 Workshop
    My son lost the extra key to our 9-5 wagon, so I am casting about for the most cost-effective way to replace it. I can buy the key blank pre-cut to my car from eeuro for a very reasonable $37. The all-in-one blank does not include the remote alarm transmitter innards which are another $117. Does...
  9. 2008 9-5 Only Came With One Key

    9-5 Workshop
    As the title states my car only came with one key. I asked how much a spare would cost and I got quoted about $350 by the dealer. I asked what if I got a new blade and bought a used fob online, he said they can only be programmed once. I highly doubt that is true. I did some research and found...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I got my tires replaced at Les Schwab (so shoot me but I needed a new tire like now) and they told me I needed new brakes. I had an appointment set for later in the month to do so, so I declined. One week later I get a horrible grinding noise while driving home. Since no one has touched the...
