Since you mentioned this, I'll take the opportunity to point out a couple things about Saabs that you might not know: - if the remote goes dead and you locked the car with it previously, you will _not_ be driving that car until you replace the batteries. - you can change batteries anytime, no dealer programming necessary. When I notice that the distance from which I can unlock the car is decreasing, I replace them. - if you have only one remote, get another one *now*. You will have to have the dealer program it. However, if you lose the only working remote to a Saab you will spend $1-2K for a new computer. You can buy a duplicate remote on Ebay if you like, but you will need to have the dealer program it *before* you lose your only remote.
