Forum rules

When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the post subject/thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

For Tech II issues or help requests please state the following in your title ''Tech 2 help required - state issue and your location ''.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.

Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Car Model: 9-3 Aero
Recently had to smash my rear window to gain access to my car. Here's the story...

Locked the car, went to work and came out after my shift to find the remote didn't unlock the car, close range or far, angles etc so i got a new battery for it from the shop and still nothing. Took out the metal key and it wouldn't go in so took some force and it turned and made clicking noises but the door would not unlock. So I smashed the window to get in and the alarm went off but the key fob still didn't work to put off the alarm or unlock the door. Wasn't until I climbed in and started the engine that the fob worked again and now I'm scared to lock the car. Any ideas what went wrong/how to fix it?

The car is a 2006 9-3 aero. Other than that it's never had any electrical issues.
