Subject: Re: 9000 CDE engine disabling


I had thought that this was a problem inherent only in New Gen 900s. On the 9000s- at least the 95 and higher modelsyears that i've looked at, either locking the drivers door with the key, or using the key fob button activates the alarm and related engine disabling features. On the new gen 900s however, only using the key fob activates the alarm and locks the doors. The key in the drivers door can only be used to lock and unlock the car, not arm the alarm system. I would guess that if you lost the key fob or the battery went dead and you didn't have recourse to use it, and the car doesn't start - someone with a the Saab Tech2 gizmo could do it (i.e. a saab dealer). The Tech2 if you haven't seen one before is a ruggedized portable computer device with a huge backlit, touch sensitive LCD screen on it. It's almost as expensive as it sounds. It makes me almost reluctant to lock my car using the key fob! -T 96 900S On Tue, 1 Jun 1999 21:13:38 -0400, Steve Brezina <sjbrezinnopsament.math.uwaterloo.ca> wrote: > >Hi.. > >My dad just bought a beautiful '96 9000 CDE V6.
