SOURCE: Re-programming SAAB 9-3 remote from anoter car.

Like a lot of SAAB components, the manufacturer has tried to make them as least attractive and susceptible to theft as possible - try fitting a stereo from one SAAB to an identical model - it won't work. It is a question of divorce and marriage.

The components (electronic ones) are married to the individual car. Your remote from another car would need to be de-prgrammed by a dealer with full SAAB diagnostic equipment (if it is possible to de-program the remote), before being married to your car. A 9-3 can have up to 3 or 4 keys (mine has two - there were three but it's a long story!) with different levels of access for the car. Without the donor car available to electronically divorce the donated remote I am not sure that they will work.

Also bear in mind that different overseas markets use different UHF frequencies for remotes for car locking systems and unless the remotes are a perfect match for your car they may never work.

Slide out the metal key insert from the remote and check the engraved code on the inside curve of your remote to see if the part number matches or comes close to the one from your original key.

Seperate key fobs only can be programmed in the following way.

Turn ignition on/off 8 x times (allow all functions to stabilise) after the 9th on - press a button on both remote fobs. then turn ign. off. use good remote to lock and then try new remote to unlock/lock. sometimes it works first time - sometimes you have to repeat actions. good luck.

To program your vehicle's key fob you will need a scan tool. Select PROGRAM RKE on the scan tool and follow the instructions on the scan tool screen.

Your key can only be programed at the dealer. They have to use a scan tool and a unique id code that they get from the factory. It is done this way to help insure that the vehicle is less likely to be stolden.

Saab 2003 key not recognized how to by pass to get it started


There's an antenna for the transponder receiver built into the key surround on the 9-5, it could have had a knock or be faulty.

On the 9-5 if the transponder stops working and you get a key not accepted message then you can override it by pushing the unlock button on the key remote with the ignition turned to on and it should let you start the car.

How do I program a new key fob for a 2007 Grand Prix? Bought a replacement on e-bay.


Hey Lisa,
You are going to have to take the car and the key fobs to the dealership .
They will need all of the fobs , as they are all going to need to be reprogramed at once ;
The fob on an 07 Pontiac only can be programed using a diagnostic scan tool .
They will connect the scan tool to the vehicle.
Turn key to on position.
Select 1 body,
then select special functions
then select program key fob,
select the number of key fobs you want programed.
Press and hold the lock and unlock key simultaneously for about 15 seconds until the power locks cycle to confirm the remote is programed.

I hate to tell you this but you have to have a scan tool in order to program the new key fob. Typically only dealerships tend to have those. That device is necessary to communicate with the alarm module. Contact a dealership and bring all keys/fobs with you. I would expect to drop anywhere from $30 - $50 dollars.

1999 Chevy silverado z71trying to program a new key fob


Use this procedure for New Body Style.
1. Close all doors
2. Insert key into ignition
3. Hold down the power UNLOCK button on the driver's door panel, continue to hold down
until instructed to release in step 9.

4. Perform steps 5 through 8 in a fairly rapid succession.
5. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.)
6. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
7. Turn the ignition to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the engine.)
8. Turn the ignition to the OFF position.
9. Release the power UNLOCK button on the door panel. The vehicle should respond by
door locks locking and unlocking automatically. (If locks do not cycle after you let go,
not before you let go of the unlock button, then the vehicle has not entered programming
mode and you must start procedure over. Remove key from ignition, open drivers door
and return to step 1 ). If the locks do cycle automatically then proceed to step 10.

10. Hold down the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the remote until the doors lock and
unlock. This may take up to 30 seconds.

11. Repeat step 10 NOW for each additional remote. (Including any existing remotes).
12. Turn the ignition to the ON position to exit the programming mode.
13. Test remote(s).

Programming the keyless remote


if you have the original remote, you can do it yourself. My remote was working without a problem until the other day when all of a sudden it didn't work out of nowhere. I thought it was the battery (might have been and needed to be reprogrammed after replacing it) so I changed it. Still didn't work. So I did a search and found the following instructions: Click Here

The answer is remarkably simple:
1. Get in the car and close the door.
2. Turn the key to the ACC position
3. Push the unlock button on the remote until the blinkers flash once.
4. Get out of the car and test the remote. It should be working fine. ( I actually was able to test it while in the car)

P.S. I would change the battery first.

Re-programming SAAB 9-3 remote from anoter car.


try and find a saab authorized dealership, not a gm'er who may or may not know. If you have a remote, then they should be able to 'reprogram' ALL keysets at one time to the same signature/frequency that your car is set to.
