2001 Saab 9-5 Power Door Lock problem

Power door locks stopped working when using the key. Button on the center console does lock and unlock the doors. I replaced the battery in my key... still doesn't work. Any ideas? Perhaps a fuse?

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

Doors wont all lock at the same time on my '95 saab 9000cs. i have to manually lock them individually. My dashboard lights flicker, sometimes the lights will stay on and sometimes i have to tap the switch...


When you use your remote or insert your key in the Drivers Front door all the door locks should work at the same time by the door lock motors electrically. If you have to manually unlock the door because it will not lock or unlock by the lock motor, you need a door lock motor. The drivers and passengers front doors can unlocked with the key manually only. The rear doors you have to pull up the latch. 
If NONE of doors unlock electrically with the remote or drivers door lock, intermittently or all the time, you will need a Central Locking Electronic Control Module. Pressing the remote button you will hear the "beep", but no door locks will fire at all. 
If you have a few odd door locks not working intermittently or not at all, you will need a new door lock motor for each door lock that malfunctions. You can hear if the door locks are working electrically. Yes, they are common problem. 
If you can hear the door lock motor working but the door still doesn't unlock you need to take the door panel off and lubricate the door latch assembly and work the lock, loosening it up. This is common as well.
Sometimes a bad door lock motor can blow the central locking fuse. You will notice it because it will take a second or two longer to lock and unlock compared to the others. If the door lock motors seem fine, install a the next step up in amperage fuse. (From 15 AMP to a 20 AMP)

Most likely you have a bad TWICE unit. it is located under the driver's seat, at a low point in the floor and often gets wet.

you need to spend some time triing the best you can to get the top of the door panel open a bit to see what is broken inside, most likely a clip.The other thing to try is a slim jim to get the door open then repair the door lock.
