Saab Re Flash and Remote Programming
There are a number of different car keys that your Saab may use depending on the model and the year it was manufactured. For Saab 9-5s from 1999-2002, the cars utilize a standard transponder car key. Not only must the key be cut properly to the ignition so that it is able to turn, but the key must also be programmed to communicate with the vehicle’s computer. Without proper programming, the vehicle will not start. If our auto locksmith has to make a key from scratch, the process is more involved than you find with many other manufacturers. In addition to creating a new key, our locksmith must also re-flash the car’s computer in order for the new key to be programmed. This feature was added by Saab to increase the security level of their vehicles. Many other mobile locksmiths are not able to perform this computer reflash, but Phila-Locksmith can. This means that even when you have lost your only key, there is still no need to have your car towed to the local dealership.

No matter the service that you need completed for your Saab, Phila-Locksmith should be the first call to make. Saab is a particularly difficult car maker for locksmiths to service, especially when the existing car key has been lost. Unlike many other manufacturers, where a new key can easily be added to the system without as much labor. For Saab vehicles, the car’s computer must also be re-flashed. Most locksmiths are unable to do this, however; Phila-Locksmith’s professionals push themselves to offer the most services possible. In addition to the difficult labor involved with providing replacement car keys, there is another reason that Saab car key services are both difficult to come by and more expensive than other manufacturers. In 2012 Saab filed for bankruptcy, this has made replacement Saab keys, remotes and ignition difficult to come by.
