    thanks ewashmidas. do you know what the process will be and whether or not I will have to bring the car into the dealer in order to have it programmed or fit? The problem is that I scraped the side of the car and dented it getting out of my garage. I threw the key down in a fit of rage and it got disformed by me slamming it on the ground. So Since we lease, I want to know if I have to fix the dent prior to going back to the leasing company. I'm wondering if they need the actual car to make a new key. do you know that?

Is it just a "physical" fit problem?
Because if it is merely this and not your electronics you could always buy another key on ebay like this

.......then all you would have to do is pop open the casing like you were going to remove the battery, instead pulling the little circuit board also and replacing it with your own one in your damaged fob!!

You should call the Saab dealer, they are the only ones that will know the cost. I bet you will need them to make you one anyway.

    I would call the dealer, but there are a lot of vehicles you need to take in to have the key made and programed to the car.

Fault with saab 9-3 aero

Hello I have a saab 9.3 SS 04 and had the same problem.

- intermittent wipe doesn't work, at all
- windscreen washers don't work, at all
- "normal" continuous, and fast wipe work, but the wipers
freeze in the middle of the windscreen if you let go of the
control stalk, rather than sweeping back to the resting position
- same "freeze" happens with the manual wipe (push down on the control stalk)

The weird thing is that, this morning, for about 10 minutes, it seemed to fix itself,
partially - the washers started working etc - but the intermittent wipe still didn't work. However not long after that it went back to the symptoms described above.
also if I unplugged my car battery for a minute the washers worked for several seconds but again same problem occurs.

Solution is to replace your wiper motor. its that "simple"
worked for me. The wiper motor has a lot of electronic stuff and seems to control the washer engine.
Good luck.
