Question about 2004 Saab 9-3
We've just returned from being away for 2 weeks and neither of the keys for our 93 are working. We've manually opened the door to get in the car, but cannot start the car or use the keys to open the trunk. I have a hard time beliefing it is the battery in the key, as both of them are not working and we've just replaced the car battery a few months ago.
Is there anything we can try before calling a tow truck?
I have the same problem, and it happends sometimes. seems like it happends when I "stress" the key ignition when I turn off the engine.
Begins with when I get to the car and gonna try to unlock it doesent work, and need to use the manual key to unlock. if so I cant start the car. I don't hear any click when i put the key in lock and I cant turn it around. if you figured your problem out plz tell me. I hope same solution that works for me working for you.
If you look on Internet its alot of people that having same problem.
my solution is when I slam the driver door hard or hit the middle console with my hand I suddenly can start the car and the ignition works also the door locks begins to work.

Replace the battery in your FOB (your key)
your key has to talk to the computer for it to start
if your battery is dead in your key it will not start
