  1. 9-5 Workshop
    Probably I'm too stupid (once again 😁 ), but I would like to unlock the rear (hatch) door with the remote. As for now, I have to unlock it with the key and lock with the switch in the door (which I sometimes forget...).

    The Drivers Lock Switch in this 2007 9-3 2.0T Cabrio isn't working tried replacing the switch to no avail. Then replaced/programmed the door latch/lock module, which also did nothing. the Door locks with the key and with the passenger side switch. It gets power and groun. Anyone run into this...
  3. 9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I made a post about this a while ago but it didn't bother me enough to really do anything about it until recently. Basically, my driver side locks (both doors) behave erratically. Sometimes one won't lock or unlock, sometimes both. Sometimes they work just fine. When one or both fails to lock...

    Having an issue with my electric locks sometimes failing to operate, but it is a little strange. Sometimes they won't lock, sometimes they won't unlock. 90% of the time the only lock that is affected is the driver door, but sometimes the rear driver side door will also not cooperate. Passenger...

    So my drivers door does not open from inside or outside. The remote unlocks all other doors and also the little knob on the drivers door pops up. So the question is why does it not open ? Is it electrical or mechanical? I understand the problems there is with these locks when either the outside...

    A trick I discovered today which might be of interest to the community. I am not an automotive mechanics and work on my car when I really have to. recently, I had to change the end-plate on my car (2002 Saab 9-3 SE Turbo Convertible) and to do so I removed the engine from the engine-bay. On...

    Hello I have a 2004 saab 9-3 aero. I'm having issues locking the doors. The car used to lock and unlock with the remote but now it doesn't.

    Hello, I own a Saab 9-3 Combi (2006) since a few years and I recently had an issue when trying to start the car. When I was putting the key fob in the ignition switch, the SID was displaying the message :"Steering lock malfunc. Make safe stop", it was impossible to turn the key so impossible...

    First of all did something happen on this forum where passwords were reset? I tried logging into my old account today and not only would I not accept the saved password on my iCloud Keychain but it wouldn't even accept the password that saabcentral would send me when I reset it? Second, I have...

    So when I bought my 04 vert almost 3 years ago it had one missing item that I thought rather strange. It came with a blanked out door lock switch on passenger side. I have seen other verts with the switch there so i figured it was just some weird option fitted. Fast forward to now and recently...

    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. Can't get it out of the vertical (locked) position. It was working flawlessly just before I replaced the light but...

    A little while ago I was receiving the infamous driver's rear door lock failure in which the door would neither lock nor unlock with the FOB or buttons on the driver's/passenger's door(s). About a week ago I finally got around to replacing the lock actuator which seemed to be the most...

    Alright, I know there are all kinds of places that have saab original parts, I just cant seem to find them. I need two things, 1) passenger door lock actuator (door wont unlock/lock with fob or door buttons, must be done manually) 2) directional nozzles on headlight washer fluid dispenser...
