Does anyone know if there is a locking gas cap available for the 9-3? An aftermarket cap would be nice as I am 120 miles(200km) from the dealership.
I don't want a student to sugar my gas tank. :roll: Thanking you in advance, Doug

Be careful with this one becuase there have been reports that the locking fuel door circuitry is now disabled on the 2005's, so purchase would be useless. I installed the locking mechanism on my 2004 Linear w/o a problem and it locks with the rest of the locks.

Thanks to all. There is not a locking gas cap available for the SS according to GenuineSAAB. I wanted something simple rather than retrofitting a lock to the fuel door. Oh well,

It seems part way through 04 they defaulted the BCM program option to "without gass door locking" it takes us about 20min to program.

I bought a locking gas cap brand: Stant Part no: 10518 about 1 month ago and it works fine. No nasty fuel warning lights have flashed on.
