Issues with locking/unlocking driver door with key fob.

Asked by Jan 03, 2014 at 11:03 AM about the 2007 Saab 9-3 2.0T

Question type: General

I have a 2007 Saab 9.3 turbo. The issue I am running into is the driver door. Here is a list of issues:
1) When pressing the "lock" button on the driver door it will not lock the driver door or any door for that matter. However, if you press "unlock" it will unlock all doors. I am then forced to manually press down the lock to lock the driver door.
2) The driver window will not roll down (electric).
3) When pressing the unlock button on the key fob, it will unlock every door except the driver door.
4) In order to "unlock" the driver door from outside, I have to take out the metal key from the fob and manually unlock the door (if I do not press the "unlock" button on the key fob before doing this, the security system will start going off once I open the door).

Please help! :) Thank you!

I must add, i had the battery replaced about 2-3 months ago...i didnt notice these things happening right away, but i believe there is a connection between the two....

sounds to me, like there's a wiring issue in your door harness, have you been unexpectedly blowing random fuses? on that note, have you checked your fuses? it's possible something that shouldn't be has grounded itself or crossed wires somehow. #4 shows that your FOB and the computer is communicating properly, which means the problem is between the computer and the door. definitely, crack open the door, and give the wiring a look-over.
