thanks Pete the thing I do not understand is that the key worked a couple of times during repair but now the key will not work so they are saying impact has caused problem. I know the battery went flat and had to be recharged and then after that it did not work Is it just a reprogramme situation The key for a saab fits into a switch near to handbrake Confused as they got an 'expert' but did not diagnose problem!!
HI Pete could you reply to my comment? Thanks Colin
they had to replace the doors so the only electrics they would have worked on would be the electric windows. I am just concerned they have created the problem and then intend to charge me for it. I am assuming however you agree it could have been caused by the impact in which case they would be entitled to charge me for the repair which so far they have failed to resolve !
ok thanks I think that is as far as we can take it. I am in uk and you are in US! I may have to get a second local opinion if they eventually fix it depending on what they charge me.. Regards Colin
they have replaced the electronics box and it started after being reprogrammed BUT the horn not working so they are saying it needs a new cim if so does that seem right and are new keys required Thanks
bad news as expensive to replace ! i just could not forsee all this after my accident!
The problem is I took the chance of buying back the car as written off . Gamble is not paying off!
ce la vie Thanks Colin
