    Default 3 Button key fob

    I have had a search in the forum, but can't find anything to do with replacing the non-flip keyfob with a 3 button flip key. I'm sure someone's posted something.

    Anyway, does anyone know if you can fit/adapt the non-flip electronics into the flip key shell, or can point me in the direction of the correct post?

    Many thanks.

    shame its not a simple job, john.robertson2 may well have a very valid point, but its surprising how many people are selling 'used' flip keys on ebay, thought you couldn't reprogramme an already programmed key.

    iirc kman told me that once a flip key's been programmed it can't be reprogrammed again.

    yup, thats what i thought too. i feel sorry for the poor mugs who buy them & pay to have them programmed only to find theyve wasted their money.

    its also surprising how many people are selling, on ebay, the info thats on the 'Vectra Secrets' thread! I mean, £2.50 including postage to tell someone how to activate the anti-carjack feature, not alot of money, but i wonder how many mugs have paid up?

    I have bought 2 flip keys off of e-bay, both came with a blade cut for another car, and both described as the being the spare, and after cutting new blades they both programmed into my car.........................but, I could have been lucky.

    yeah I've seen those advertised, it's the same with most things though, if some scroat thinks he can make a penny he'll try to, I'd be interested to see how many people pay for the anti-carjacking- it must be enough to at least pay for the ebay fees of auctioning them by the tens/hundreds.
