Customer Question
Have a Saab 900...

Have a Saab 900 reg R997 GPN and neither remote nor key working to open doors

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the key stripped or worn?

No key is fine but remote for doors is worn. Remote for boot works fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your 900?

1997

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 900 yourself? What have you tried so far?

No skill at anything mechanical. Just looking for replacement remote. You are my first port of call

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No thanks
