Common Vauxhall Issues
Remotes not working
On Vauxhall's Astra, Zafira and Vectra models there are common problems with the battery housing breaking away from the circuit board. There is a quick fix which consists of padding out the inside of the remote or trying to resoulder joints, but both of these will only work for a short period of time. We can supply brand new genuine remotes with a 1 year guarantee.
Keys are easily broken on vehicles made prior to 2004. We can retrieve the broken part from of the lock and supply you with a new key, even if you are stranded. Our mobile workshop can come out for a little extra charge to get you up and running as quickly as possible.
My car will not start and the immobiliser light is flashing.
There are several things which can cause this light to flash: A lost microchip from the key, which is very common on cars upto 2005 (as is a broken chip on a Vectra and Signum after 2002). Both of these problems can be sorted by a new chip or key. The other is an electrical fault. We have the equipment to diagnose these faults if you wish.
FAQ on Vauxhall
I need a spare key/remote but I have no Car Pass
There's no need to worry. We have software on our machines which can read the majority of Vauxhall immobiliser codes. If we cannot read them we will ask you for your log book and a small fee to obtain them from Vauxhall UK. Please be aware that obtaining a Car Pass from Vauhall normally takes upto 48 hours on a working day, so if you have this information at hand it will make the job both quicker and cheaper.
My Vectra 2003 key stops the car from starting.
Yes, we can upgrade the older style key to a more hard-wearing flip remote key. The reason that the car won't start is that the transponder immobiliser chip is connected to the circuit board and when the remote buttons wear, the microchip gets damaged.
I have lost the chip out of my Astra 2000 remote key
We can supply a new chip and program to your security codes. This can be done without supplying a key if it is not required.
I have a Corsa C, but the remote is not working. Can you help?
We can replace your remote for a new genuine one, which will come with a one year guarantee. There is no need to replace the full key if it is not needed and we do not even need any codes as we can extract them from the ECU using our specialist equipment.
The immoiliser light flashes on my 2002 Movano van and it will not start.
These vans are based on the same system as a Renault Master, which also have the same fault. The microchip breaks down and a new key is needed. Bring your remote to us for testing and we will try to retrieve the immobiliser information. If we cannot, we can order a key to your chassis number for you.
I have tried to change the battery in my remote and I've accidentally broken the battery housing.
It is advisable to have a new remote, as any attempts to repair it will only last for a while and it may break again at an inconvenient time, rendering the remote useless. If the car has an alarm then we need your security codes if you have them but if not, we can still program a new remote using specialist equipment.
I have lost my keys. Can you help?
We can supply you with new keys or remotes on the road, using your security Car Pass. As we try to keep costs down for you, it maybe worth your while waiting for us to obtain the required codes if you do not have them. We can work on most cars without the codes but there will be an increased labour charge as more time will be required to complete the job.
My car keys have been stolen. I need help urgently.
We can help but it is likely to be expensive. Sometimes it can be more cost effective for us to get the vehicle moved for you and then complete the job when it is more convenient. We can change the locks and supply programmed keys so the keys stolen will never work again.
I have broken my key in the door/ignition lock. What can I do?
If the vehicle cannot be driven we can come to you and retrive the broken part out of the lock. We will cut a new key and get you up and running. If you can drive the car to our workshop then we can book you in to do the same job, but at a cheaper rate.
