Well, I guess your dealer is right. The key needs to be cut according to your VIN. At very least you could use it only as a remote for alarm but yo won't be able to start the car with it as it physically does not match the ignition box not the door lock. I paid $200 for the one for my 9-5. Radek caffeine wrote: > I recently bought a 2001 Saab 9-3 that only came with one key. Wanting > a spare, I purchased a keyless entry remote+key off of Ebay.
