Possible door lock actuator. Or you have a mechanical failure in the mechanism. Id remove door panel and inspect the mechanism but if you dont know what to look for, take to a reputable shop

you need to spend some time triing the best you can to get the top of the door panel open a bit to see what is broken inside, most likely a clip.The other thing to try is a slim jim to get the door open then repair the door lock.

SOURCE: cant unlock saab convertible

This is usually from lack of use, try lubricating the locks with a teflon or graphite based lubricant. Hold the dust cover open and put some in the locks, also put some on the key and work it in and out, and twisting a little each way, it may take a couple of applications to free up the locks.

Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: cant unlock my saab convertible with key

I had this same problem and I fixed it by opening up the door panel and accessing the door handle mechanism by removing the membrane that covers up the access holes. After watching the mechanism work by manually lifting and lowering the lock as well as actuating the door handle, I noticed that the door handle mechanism was causing the lock to bind as a return spring was not letting the mechanism return to neutural after the door handle was actuated. This blocked the mechanism from unlocking even with the key. Believe it or not all that was required was a little wd - 40 on the mechanism and the problem disappeared. The lock once again worked both with the key and with the remote. 15 minutes to take off the door panel 25 minutes to diagnose, 20 minutes to think about what might be causing the spring not to work correctly and less than a minute to remedy. I hope that I can save you the 45 minutes. Good Luck

Our saab was driving fine, we parked and went shopping after an hour came out and it wont start. Replaced the battery and it still wont start. It is a manual so we are able to pop the clutch and it...


Sounds like an immobilizer/alarm issue...only way to properly diagnose is with a Saab factory scan tool...unfortunately..
Try another key if you have one....also lock and unlock the vehicle a few times with the key fob...or door key to insure the alarm/immobilizer has been turned off.

Hope this helps!

Your KEY will not unlock the Door? That has nothing to do with the FOB.

OR do you mean your FOB will not work at all?. If it is a PROGRAMMING ISSUE, you need to contact your Dealer

My Porsche Key fob no longer unlocks the doors


Insert key into door barrel or ignition lock and turn key, whilst doing this press the unlock/lock button, the led on the dash should flash to indicate this has initialised the key to the car, then remove key and test operation of remote. If this fails then a new remote plus coding to the car by your dealership is needed
