Having problems with your 2003 Saab 9-3 ?
2003 saab 9-3 sport sedan. Car was fine then one day, electronic (nub)key won't turn in cylinder. When key is inserted into lock cylinder you should hear column unlock which it doesn't. Tested key battery and its good, battery in car is good, all fuses and relays are good. Key looks a little beat up though. Any ideas? Thanks

The 1st thing i would suspect is the key, have a new key made and programmed, if that is not the issue you will need to have the security system tested by the dealer (requires the use of a dealer onlu scan tool) you may have a defective transponder receiver in the the steering column, but do the key 1st, I have checked and it does require a trip to the dealer to have the security module programmed to the new key.
