Re: Second key not working - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
Thanks, Anders and Justin. I had more time for diagnosis tonight.
1--(slightly) warmer weather did not make it start.
2--replacing the key battery did not make it start.
4--remote lock/unlock did work, but I still got the "key not accepted" alert. Meanwhile, checking the readout (hold the unlock button) confirmed I still have 2 remotes and 2 keys registered.
6--holding the known good key next to the ignition while turning the bad key was still "key not accepted."
6--holding the brass orchestra ticket away from the ignition did not work.
7--pressing the unlock button while turning the key (as the manual and Anders suggested) worked, but the next time I tried starting the car, it still did not accept the key.
So I have a workaround, and I have a good key. If it ever warms up again, I'll have another try and see if maybe the car battery output wasn't enough to get a good signal from the transponder to the key and back.
