Photo of the Month |
Friends - haven't posted in awhile here but still soldiering on celebrating my 17th year with my '95 9000 this month. I just got it back from the body shop who sandblasted and welded the summer away taking care of all of the rust and painting and blending both sides of the car. He looks brand new - will upload a pic or two when I have a chance.
In the meantime, when I picked it up from the shop, immediately noticed that both remotes don't work for the alarm or the trunk. The key will lock the car, but the LED doesn't light up. The central locking button in the console works only if the car is running, and the trunk opener on the door works fine. The clock is resetting itself each time the car is started, and the radio isn't turning on at all. Clearly something got messed up in doing the body work (both front fenders, bottoms of all 4 doors, rear wheel arches) but I can't pinpoint what. The shop is a great body shop but not a Saab shop so they don't know. Any ideas what might be tying all of this together before I give in and take it to my Saab shop?
