Just replaced the battery in a 2006 saab 9-3 and now the display is saying that the "key is unrecognizable". what do i need to do to make it read the key again?

You may have to take the car to the dealer to have them reprogram your TWICE unit using the TECH 2 to recognize the key. They will charge for that.

Unfortunately you will have to take a car the dealer. There is something wrong with the column integration module. There may be a recall relating to this too.
