Question about Saab 9000
Have the cuts check by the dealership if the codes match the cuts made. I think since the car is older than ten years the wear inside the lock cylinder is too severe so that is why the new key will not work.
I am a cetified locksmith so I do know what I am trying to explain to you

When you loose the keys you have to get a twice unit and a chip and then program them using the Saab tech2 tool. There are two different alarm remotes and chips. One is 1/4 X 1/4 X 1 inch long and the new style chip is actually built into the remote head. The easiest thing to do is to have a new key made by vin so you can use your existing locks and then buy the twice unit and chip. When ordering the key you must order a key that matches the type of chip you need.
-------------- The new key can be programmed by old key or by the TWICE UNIT tool.As you have lost the old key but you have made the new key ,but it will not work till its programmed but to program you need the twice unit. The problem isn't obtaining a key but programming the new key. Since you need the old key to perform a program, the new key is useless. You will now have to purchase a new alarm module (900.00) plus the labor to install and program it.
This module is called a TWICE unit. It is responsible for the anti-theft feature in your Saab. But ask the dealer to reset the key and then try.Many dealers have reset tool.After that reset the key works without any programming.But if he the dealer is not helping then you will require the above mentioned tools to do it. Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
