new Saab Fob

I have a 2008 Saab and was hoping to buy a new/used fob that will work from ebay, but I am worried about it not working. Can I buy a fob and just have it re-programmed, or must I go through the dealership and buy a new one?


Thanks,

John

what alot of people do is take their old fobs buy a new one and replace the new internals, but i dont know if thats your issue. if you wanna buy a new one on ebay you can, but the dealer charges something like 150 bucks for programing. :S

Sport Sedan keys can't be re-used once programmed.

If you just want the buttons not all falling apart you can swap yours into a new case, but the key itself new @ the dealer is only about $80. A good automotive locksmith may be able to code it for you too, but call your nearby dealers and indies to check, the price can vary wildly.
