Question about 1999 Saab 9-5
There is a sensor mounted on top of the ignition switch that looks at the magnetic "chip" in your car key when you stick the key in. If it doesn't think you have the right key (because of a defective key or "chip") it won't let the ignition switch start the car. There is a reset procedure Try this:--- Insert key into ignition and turn the key as if to start. Nothing will happen. Release the key but do not remove it. Push one of the three buttons (doesn't matter which) on your alarm. Now turn key to off position and then turn key to start. It should start at that point. You'll still have a message on your display "key not accepted." Although this works fine. click this link for more help http://www.saabnet.com/tsn/faq/keyfaq.pdf Thanks.

U are going to need the Audi dealer to scan the factory anti-theft module and see if the key receiver is defective or the module is the problem, without the Audi scan tool there is no way to diagnose this without guessing, no matter what u think is wrong the new parts must be programmed or u will have a no start,the trip to the dealer is unavoidable.
