Hi, My Name is ***** ***** for posting your question to just answer. I am a independent contractor for just answer, and ASE Certified Master Auto Technician with 20 years experience. I am confident we can resolve your problem together.Please remember I don't know your skill level. I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle. It may take a few back and forth replies to get to a satisfactory resolution.There will probably be some equipment needed for a proper diagnosis. If you are not comfortable with this or do not have any test equipment please let me know ASAP. I also try to give all of the information you may need expecting a positive rating. I am not compensated for my time until you leave a positive rating. Your rating should be based on the service you received.
A quality scanner can unlock the ignition. I doubt the keys are the fault. Do not remove the CIM until you can unlock the ignition and properly diagnose.
This is not a body shop type of repair. I suggest a SAAB specialist or a shop familiar with them
Unlocking the ignition will likely not make it start. It will give you access to properly diagnose
Hello, I have not heard from you in a few days. Do you still need assistance? I also noticed you havent left a rating. I have assisted in good faith and am only compensated when you leave a positive rating. Please let me know if there is anything else you need to leave a positive rating. Conversations can always continue after a rating is received.
I have never had any problems unlocking the ignition with a Tech2 scanner. Ask your specialist if they are using a tech2. Hard to believe a saab specialist is having problems with this.
I hope everything has gone satisfactorily. Please don't forget to leave a rating. Your rating should be based on the service you received. I have assisted in good faith and am only compensated for my time when you leave a positive rating. That is 3 stars or more. If there is any reason you cannot leave a positive rating let me know before leaving a rating. Let us know if you need help in the future.
