Need more information, what year your car is, which transmission, exactly what it does when you turn the key and what the error message on the info display says, etc.

Try pressing the unlock button on the remote after you get the "key not accepted" message and see if it starts.

Well there is another problem. when i got the car it had keys with dead batteries in them. with replacing the key batteries i also replaced the siren under passenger wheel well. Mine had got went and sorted out. had to replace plug as that thing burnt up lol. Anyway the key never worked for auto lock or truck pop.

Any body have a tech2 around Green Bay w.i. thats willing to lend a hand. This is my second saab 9-3 and i really like these cars, but both have given me random problems.

Ive had this car for a 4 months, ran fine started in cold weather (40 below) now i got problems

You should still try what I suggested.

If you don't have at least one key that will start the car, you will need to buy a twice and a matching key from Ebay. Then I believe you will still need a guy with a Tech II to match the TWICE to the DICE and ECU. You definitely need a Tech II to add a second key so that this doesn't happen again.

If you want to work at it and get a TWICE with ALL-In-1 keys, you can work it out so that you keep the same key blades and don't have to change locks.

SWEET! Even better, you had two keys made. And the best, looks like you've found a fair and honest shop!
