Excllent Mark

I have had quite a few of these done last time I was at dealers.

I do like the idea of doors locking when moving off - especially if wife driving with handbag on passenger seat!

There are lots of other things too such as:

- changin the wheel/tyre size for speedo accuracy
- how far the boost gauge moves

I'll see if I can dig them out

I've always hated the rolling lock and couldn't get it taken off the current car soon enough, though obviously it depends where you live (and what your wife does with her handbag...). Maybe I'm just claustrophobic, but, Saabs esp being such secure cars, I shudder at the thought of people trying to get in and help you in the event of an accident. I just punch the central locking button when urban!

Wonders... is there an auto unlock in the event of an accident?

Now that's a good point: it's a smart car so that might well have been designed in (e.g. if airbags deployed doors unlock).

As far as I'm aware from bodyshop - the collision sensors for the airbag deployment release the locking mechnism.

I might have misheard but it is certainly plausable if my old Volvo 940 had it!

Yup, that does make sense.

But then if you don't manually deploy the central locking you forfeit the pleasure of hearing your kids say "Dad, are we in the badlands?"...

I'm sure that I've read somewhere that in the event of an accident locked doors are much safer than unlocked. The reason being that if they are unlocked the doors may open themselves at an inopportune moment but if they are locked they will stay shut so you can't get ejected from the vehicle (which can happen even with seatbelts on) and no limbs can get crushed (which happened to a friend of mine who was a passenger in a car when he only had the window open and his arm flung out the window).

See what you're saying quino...............I actually carry a glass hammer as I have been first on the scene of loads of accidents where doors were still shut and locked and no one could get in................ Its quite surprising now though with the number of vehicles having a/c that very few drive around with windows down!

My only fears are finding accidents with soft tops involved - as you say flying limbs (not always attached)!

I'm pretty sure there is a fail safe that activates with airbags to allow doors to be opened - most locks are burst proof anyway even when unlocked.

There is also a secondary risk that the locks get opened by people flailing around. Anyhow, I carry about one of these for emergency entry as my glass break hammer:

(it's also useful for removing bits of rubbing bodywork when someone has driven into your car)

And there is the answer Jim,  you dont really need to lock 'em because im sure i'm right in thinking Saab's have burst proof locks. ;)

I have bought six new (or pre-reg) 9-5s since 2003.  The first couple came with a booklet listing many of these options for the customer to select what he wanted and these were programmed in free of charge by the dealer.  Then there was no booklet and I asked the supplying dealer to make some adjustment to my favourites (eg number of seconds for the boot to lock after moving off).  I was told that these was no longer possible.

So, was the dealer being unco-operative or has the system changed since 2006 or thereabouts?

My 2007 9-5 still had the Tech 2 lists in the back of the service book, even though I bought it as a used car.

Local dealer set it all up to be much the same as the 2002 car for me.

Ther might be some minor differences, but it looked much the same.

I got my mechanic to set my 9-5 so that my car doors all lock at 10KM/hr the other day. The car has locked me out twice now while i was in the trunk sorting things out. The first happened randomly and i went through hell to get home and back to my car running for hours! The 2nd time i rolled town the windows to see if it would do it again and it did!... Going to get the bloody thing changed back to no autolocks!
