Saab gas tank locked

In the trunk, there should be a carpet panel and the gas door side. Pull the carpet siding back and there should be a lever labeled gas gap manual. Use that to manually release the lock

On 2006 saab conv trunk wont unlock using handle on trunk lid, works using remote and door button

Saab have an auto-lock to thier trunks. So that nobody else can open your trunk while you're in the car etc. If you open and then closes a doot the lock should unlock. If not, your modell is only unlockable with key/doorbutton.

Trunk will not open !

The trunk lock is incorporated in the central locking system. This means that you can either lock or unlock the trunk by means of either of the front doors. You can also operate the trunk lock directly with the master key even if the vehicle is centrally locked.

Are you sure it is the Master Key? Try the key in the glove box lock. The power door locks should unlock the trunk for you turn the key if it is right over to the right turn it right over to the left . you turn the key to far right to stop the boot been opened when the doors are not closed.

Keep us updated.

How do Idisable the alarm

  • 1

    Close any open doors, and lock them all from the driver's door. You should hear the other doors locking when you turn the key in the driver's door. Check the other doors to make sure the lock indicators are in the "Locked" position.

  • 2

    Wait at least 15 seconds. Then, unlock the driver's door with the key. This should disable the alarm.

  • 3 Take your car to the Saab dealership if the alarm engages even with the car unlocked. That likely means there is a contact inside the lock on the driver door that is faulty.

    The trunk release (both on the door and on the key fob) stopped releasing the trunk lock on my 2002 Saab. The only way to open the trunk is through the emergency release pull inside the trunk. Is there a...

    If the fuse is okay, check to see that the latch is not bound in some way, and that it is properly lubricated. A dry latch sometimes will not release.

    2001 Saab 9-5 Power Door Lock 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:
