Despite advised cleaning methods well documented previously here on SaabNet, my 2008 Aero with the side face cut keys has developed a worn sticking point internally to the lock cylinder which catches a spring loaded pin and prevents the final popup and turn off of an accessory circuit. I have the radio on when I turn off the ignition to be sure a flick wrist key removal technique has accomplished the final popup. Otherwise.. battery drain overnight and no start the next morning. I ordered a replacement lock cylinder through a multi-dealer Saab parts source, but the replacement lock cylinder and key is the earlier edge cut key style and the supplier noted that the OEM face cut style is no longer available. I'm holding off installing it and have the inconvenience of still carrying the old key for driver door and glove box. Strange that my son's 2004 Arc with the face cut key hasn't worn like mine. I have noticed that a previous Saabnet discussion had a welcome photo of a disassembled lock cylinder core and the individual spring loaded wafer "pins" that represent the keying cut. Maybe I find a used functional face cut keyed lock cylinder and rebuild it with my particular wafers. I had to do this with a previous Honda CRV with crappy door locks. To be clear, my lock cylinder wear is not these core wafers, but inside the cylinder barrel and a worn spot in the pin ramp that hangs up.
