If you got the convertible, the control unit is located under the rear seat (pull up) on the LEFT (when you stand in the car on the right) hand side under the massive metal bar, behind the drivers seat. The other two things screwed under the bar are ABS-antilock control unit in the middle and the clarion audio amlifier - if equipped... The remote control is coded by a code ROM, a small chipprint, that is inserted into a socket in all remotes and the control unit. There´s a number printed on the chip, but it has no relation to the ROM-key inside, so if you want to install another remote control (as I did), you have to change all code ROMs (4# all remote controll ROMs and control unit ROM ). - The system is from ALPINE. Then there are different operating modes for the alarm system. There´s a service button under the codrivers seat (RIGHT HAND), on a metal plate where the glass-breaking microphone is installed. Use this button to change the operating mode.(alarm disabled, ignition key on, press it for some seconds until the red alarm LED driver side speaker grill flashes) Modes: A) panic/test function: press remote for >5sec and alarm turns on - always 1) remote locks/unlocks door and enables/disables alarm after some seconds (interieur light off) 2) remote only operates alarm system (lock doors using key) 3) service mode (key- ignition on) - press button - alarm disabled (for service center) If there was an alarm and you want to unlock the alarm system and press the remote button, the alarm key will display an alarm code (flash sequence) to determine what happened (I have the codes but don´t know them by heart...). Then you have to press the remote button a second time to unlock the alarm system. Best mode is 1) if you have all doors closed and turn on alarm (red LED) - there should be no alarm after the interieur light turns off (10sec)- if there´s an alarm threre´s a faulty door switch (hood, left right door, trunc ,rear seat) . When you try to open the locked trunc (pull short and heavy) it may turn on. So, I wish you lots of fun with this great car, (the last real SAAB???!!)
