For a 9-5 with a manual gearbox you have the obvious problem with the gear stick locked in the reverse position. But that is not enough, the Trionic engine management computer and the TWICE security computer does not allow any engine functions to operate until TWICE has been able to get an known ID from the RFID transponder embedded in the key handle. The key has two locking functions, the laser cut metal key for the mechanical lock, and the RFID transponder embedded in the handle. The remote transmitter is either a separate unit (1998-2000) or integrated in the key handle (1998, 2001-). You could disable the security system by placing the key in the ignition, extracting the RFID transponder and gluing it close to the ignition lock, re-program TWICE and Trionic, etc, but anything you do will lower the theft security of the car. -- G–ran Larsson http://www.nospam.com/saab/
