It is set up so that doors automatically lock at 10kmph. One push on the remote unlock button unlocks all doors. Also, one push on the remote lock button locks all the doors, while a second push within a few secs deadlocks all the doors. My system works as it should (I think). Several times I have driven off with the boot unlocked, didn't notice the lamp alarm on the dash until after the doors had locked. Stopped, hit the unlock button on the console, got out, slammed the boot, drove off, and the doors locked again at 10kmph and the boot stayed locked. I do have one other "funny" though. I have the Recirculate button set on all the time as a default, as I mostly drive in the city. If I stop the car, turn off the engine, race into the deli for a few minutes, then come back and start the car again, the recirculate button is off. However, if I leave the car turned off for several hours, when I turn it on again, the recirculate button is on as it should be. Saab mechanics verified this but couldn't fix it. --=20 Regards, Peter Wilkins
