Question about 2008 Saab 9-3
Seeing the date that you posted this, I wonder if this has been resolved?
For your car, if the remote does not open the car door after the battery in the fob has been replaced, do this.
1. Get next to the car with doors locked
2. Push the Unlock button 4 times in succession as you count, one, two...
3. The remote receiver should recognize your fob now
As for the dash LED, it may be unplugged somewhere. The DI cassette has little to do with it. LEDs have an ginormous life span and should not go dead - at least for the life of your car. Does it EVER flash?

Does the key still pop the trunk/hatch? That would also indicate whether or not it was the key remote. If that function works it's probably nothing on the car (i.e. "receiver") end.
There is a very good SAAB forum that would likely be the best place to find out if somebody has has this issue before and what they have done: www.saabcentral.com

Most likely you have a bad TWICE unit. it is located under the driver's seat, at a low point in the floor and often gets wet.

Your tonneau motor is probably bad, though reprogramming the limits may fix it. You will need the factory tool, unfortunately. There is a lot of information on this webpage. Be sure to read the information relating to updates on 1995 models.

Had same problem, in the boot right hand side, behind the removable panel there is :
1 - a hydraulic reservoir which must be at correct level.
2 - a black box (stc) this controls the roof system,
switch ignition off then pull the 2 connectors off for 30sec then reconnect.
This worked and hope this resolves your problem

May sound a little stupid im just trying to cover all bases but have you made sure the car is unlocked. If the car is locked then the fuel door will be locked.
