Question about Mazda Tribute
Same result using remote or button on door panel. Rarely do all doors lock or unlock. Changes daily which ones work and which do not. No pattern
Try taking the central control panel loose and spraying the switch with WD-40 to see if that fixes your problem. If it has been used often it may have residue build-up on the contact points in the switch and WD-40 will make it work again. Your remote activates the main control button inside the car so I think this should solve your problem.

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

I had a similar problem with my son's 1998 Jetta K2 4 door. I sprayed loads of WD40 into the locking area from the end of the door through the clip slot, worked the mechanism sprayed some more and finally it start working. My mechanic said these are very prone to moisture causing rusting on the moving parts.

Before you bring it to a garage and pay good money check the fuses. Usually its as simple as that (located near the battery in the engine bay)
Hope this helps.
