  3. My new 9-5 Aero, a question about keys...

    9-5 Workshop
    Hiya The latest Aero (2002 NZ new) came with 3 keys in various states of repair. On the right is the one that manually unlocks and starts her - it had tape around it and the remote apparently doesn't work - although I haven't tried a new battery. The centre one is cut to shape and has a small...

    Just at the beginning of the summer I acquired a pretty sweet 00 9-3 Vert, and have since fallen in love with the thing. Just last week though my girlfriend sent the key and remote through the wash :cry:. At first try after this event and after a very thorough attempt at drying it out, it...

    Hi all, I bought a used remote on Ebay, and i took it to my saab mechanic and he said he can't re-program the remote and that once the remote has been programmed to a Saab, it cannot be reprogrammed to another?

  8. Replacing Battery in Remote

    9-5 Workshop
    Can someone tell me how to replace the batter in the keyless remote? I can take the key out but don't see an easy way to get the remote open to get to the battery. I'm hesitant to try it apart and damage it permanently, especially since I only have one remote. Thanks, Jim

  12. Helping the key fob hold out a bit longer

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Having recently picked up a 2006 9-3 vector sport I soon realised that the previous owner hadnt been to gentle with the key fob so the lock\unlock buttons looked a bit worn and split slightly on the sides of both buttons. After seeing how much new fobs cost I took one of the originals apart and...
  13. 900 Turbo Se Keyless entry remote

    I'm finding that the batteries in my keyless entry remotes are dying at a very fast rate.....every couple of months it seems. They also dont seem to work more then 15-20 feet away from the car. First is that distance normal for that particular year car? I bought used, and it's the only way...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I did a search, but couldn't find what I was looking for. Based on checking around ebay and around here, I ordered myself a gently used fob w/ cut (not my cut) key from ebay and swapped out the circuit board from my old beat up key. So now I've got a great fob and need to replace the...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi, I recently got a 2006 9-3 2.0T, just a few days ago though the remote entry started acting weird. I heard the alarm go off in the morning, and since then it's been not really unlocking with the remote. Sometimes after driving for 15 minutes+ it will let me use the remote, but after a few...
