GM isn't going to lift a finger to help Saab at this point. The fact that they still even acknowledge security access requests via TIS is actually a surprise to me. I would have thought they'd have discontinued that a long time ago. But, it's free money to them so who knows.
If you're serious about running Saabs, I would probably encourage you to buy a tech 2 from a questionable source and then get software to use it from a different but similarly questionable source. Ultimately, it's probably the best long term shot. Tech 2 is a dying business (GM switched interfaces a decade ago) much less Saab Tech 2. It's not going to make business sense for shops to maintain those tools soon, and the new stuff (MDI, etc.) doesn't reliably work on older Saabs.
