HI,

I am sorry that you have not been helped yet. I just came online and saw your question

Unfortunately this one does require a Tech2 scan tool. None of the aftermarket key programmers will program it

I do have the tech 2 but for some reason the software doesn't give that option . I go to diagnostic then to all then it just goes to reset codes. Do I need 'tis 2000 to add keys?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
My tech 2 is original I have the 10 MB Saab card
