    Program transponder on 9-5 aero wagon

    I've searched the forum but couldn't find a clear answer. I apologize if this was covered already.
    I purchased a 2000 9-5 aero wagon that only came with a single key. The key doesn't have the buttons on it etc.
    I bought a replacement key fob on Ebay, with an uncut key and factory oem internals.
    I've been to a dozen locksmiths that advertise transponder programming, and none say they can program a saab key.
    Can anyone point me in the right direction, I'm worried if i lose the only working key in really in a tough spot.
    Thank you!

    Just google Saab 9 5 lost keys. Lots of options. There are many suppliers who can cut you a transponder key from your vin, with that and sending them the new key and the ecm they can make work.
    another option is to get the parts you need from a member and just have a separate key for the door.

    This transponder key doesn't get programed to the car, the car gets programed to the transponder key. Instructions for programing both the key and remote fob are in the WIS and you will need access to a Tech 2 for programing.
    Like Mike says, you can the key cut from the VIN, send your working key in with parts from the car and have both keys programed to work. Or you get your own Tech 2 and WIS, or you take the car to someplace that works on Saab and pay to have it done.
