Saab began using transponder based systems in 1999 on the 9-3 and 9-5.
All "99 to '03 1/2 Saab keys may have the chip code cloned to a properly cut replacement
blank which is much less expensive than using dealer diagnostics to program keys to your car.

When all keys are lost to one of these cars, there is no diagnostic procedure for programming new transponder keys. The dealer procedure is to replace the security module located under the driver's seat. We have the technology to decode these modules and we are able to originate keys.
