SOURCE: can't remove key from 9.3 saab convertible

If the car is a manual transmission car, it has a reverse lockout function. The gear shift lever must be in reverse to remove the key.

The switch needs to be replaced and it requires some special tools if it's in the steering column. If it's on the floor any shade tree mechanic can do it.

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

SOURCE: 91 Saab 900 Ignition switch is stuck in lockout can not turn key.

Thanks for returning and placing your comments. This "jiggled the key while held the shifter all the way back released!" quickly solved my problem today. Otherwise I was in panic how to move my parked car out of restricted street cleaning side. You should add this to saabsite forum. Saab 9-3, 2002

2005 Saab 9-3 Convertible randomly unlocks (mostly the trunk) with horn beeps. Key fob will not lock/unlock car (battery replaced). These might be separate issues.


If this only happens when the key fob is close enough for the car to "hear" the signals transmitted from it then chances are the fob is failing. The FOB will have to be taken apart, cleaned and inspected for contamination/corrosion/stress cracks.
If the car does this on it's own even when the FOB has no battery or is too far away to be heard, then the problem could be internal on the TWICE (Theft Warning Module) or a power lock switch.
Since you said the horn beeps I would say it is most likely a FOB inadvertently transmitting signals even when you're not pushing buttons. Repair or replace the fob and you should be okay.

How do i get my key out of a 1996 saab 900


As part of the safety/theft detterent system, most SAABs will only allow key removal when YOU PUT THE (manual) TRANSMISSION IN REVERSE. Not sure how it would work with an automatic transmission. If yours is a manual transmission, give that a try. I had a 1992 SAAB 900S convertible. Ran like a raped ape but the A/C gave out on us. Miss the old girl though.

Hope this helps!

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.
