Good Morning.

This normally comes with the car on a credit card sized document, however if you do not have this, we can purchase these for you at a cost of £30 plus VAT.
Common Vauxhall Key Problems
Remotes Stop Working – On the Vauxhall Vectra, Zaifira and Astra there is a common problem with the battery housing, where the housing breaks from the circuit board. There is a quick fix (padding out the inside of the remote or by soldering the joints) but these short term fixes will not last very long. Our mobile workshop can supply new remotes and programme it to your vehicle.
Broken Key – It is common for pre 2004 keys to easily break, unfortunately this sometimes happens in the lock or ignition. If this happens to you, we can retrieve the broken bits and supply and programme a new key.
The Vehicle Won’t Start and the Immobiliser Light is Flashing – this again is a common problem. There could be a number of reasons why this is happening (1) The microchip maybe lost, which is very common on vehicles pre 2005 (2) The chip is broken, which is common on a Vectra or Signum after 2002 (3) The vehicle may have an electrical fault. Our specialist equipment can diagnose the fault and we can recommend the best solution for you..
