Replacing the battery should not affect the key programming. The only way to program the key to your car is with the Saab Tech 2 computer. This can be done at a Saab dealer or at many independent Saab repair shops. It shouldn't cost much, it can be done in 15 minutes or less.

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.

How to change head light bulb, drivers side, 2006 Saab 9-7X


Easiest way is to stick your hand in front of the battery and take the dust cover off, twist the bulb and done. I'm lucky, have smaller hands! lol, If you can't get to it, remove the battery for easy access.
The passenger side requires removal of the aircleaner box.

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.
