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, note compliant threads will be moved back when the mod/admin team next visit the Pit Lane. if your thread has been sat in the Pit Lane for 24hrs+ after editing, pm Tech II to request release)

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 Models: Saab vector tid estate
So just bought saab 93, key fob was working periodically, replaced the battery and still nothing, went off yesterday to do my cbt, miles away from home, managed to lock the car with key fob, however on returning to car, wouldn't unlock with the key again and worse still, key wouldn't turn in the ignition...tried everything just wouldn't budge, called breakdown out, he was baffled, after about an hour suddenly the car refused to start ..???? Whilst doing this messaged coming up was, steering lock malfunction and key not recognised, now repair man thinks its either the key or the ism? Has anyone else had this issue and should I try a new key first? If so done need to go to Saab for a new key...
