Help - just purchased a '91 Saab 9000 with a single key. Didn't know there was remote entry key fob, or that the car even had an alarm. Have driven it for 2 months and alarm spontaneously sounded while I was driving and at the same time, the heater blower started working at high. I cannot turn either the alarm or the heater off, and it has been sounding non-stop for over an hour. I tried closing all doors and hatch and turning key to right and left. Can't find fuse. Local Saab dealer "doesn't work on old Saabs" and won't even look at it, and local car mechanic couldn't figure it out after about 20 minutes of trying. Local mechanic looked for fuse, kill switch, and finally disconnected battery, but as soon as it was reconnected, the alarm continued to wail. Obviously hard to drive around with alarm blaring, and have exhausted local mechanic resources. Need help desperately right now. Thanks in advance to anyone who replies.
