Subject: Re: 99 9-3 Lost key


I've seen every now and then a "theft kit" on ebay for the Saabs that includes two keys and the TWICE modules as well as the locks to match. Generally a lot less than what the dealer would charge you for the parts, but someone with the computer system would have to put it in. But yea, don't lose that last key, it's big trouble. Last time I lost my 2nd key, I was at the dealer getting a new one within a week.
