Only if you have a Tech2 and know how to use it. The Tech2 is the Saab tech's interface with the car's computers. Some independents have them now. The tool is anywhere from $2K to $3.5K depending on who you buy it from. >If it can only >be set by the dealer, is it something they do for free or is there >generally a charge for this? The dealership where I work does not charge for this to OUR new car customers. > >Also, is there anyway to get the alarm to not chirp when arming and >disarming...I want the alarm to work and the lights to blink (to let >me know its been set), but I could live without the chirp... Yep, again with the Tech2. You can set the beeps from 0 to 7 for each event( ie. unlock, lock, trunk unlock, etc.). You can also do things like have a self-activate, so that the alarm will arm itself after a programmable amout of time. >This is my first Saab, after many years of owning Toyota Celica >convertibles...don't know why it took me so long to notice the Saab. >One heck of a vehicle. Yeah, I like them a lot. I started at a Saab dealer in July of 1994 (19 total years as a tech), so I got to see the horrors of the early NG900 convertibles. It got so bad, that I would pray for a rainy, cold spring. The 9-3 convertibles however have been very trouble-free. Yes, things still can and do go wrong, but it is rare. Consideing that we have had the car close to a year now. Sometimes, I wish I could afford one. Enjoy yours in good health. Steve Crowe ASE CMAT/L1, Saab Qualified level tech.
