    Default Key Help.

    I recently purchased a new Vectra and my key is in desperate need of replacing.

    The only prob is that they are £120 from VX (the quote i got from my dealer anyway).

    I have found a shell on the bay of e for £17 with the three button option.

    The questions i need to know the answers to are though:

    Where, apart from VX direct, can i get the internals from for a new key?

    Would a three buttone key work (With right internals) on my car (56 plate Vectra SRi).



    Many Thanks in advance for any answers.

    The way I understand things, you need the right series of key (they are lettered K, T, R, etc) for the correct blade.
    Once you have the correct series blade, you then need your key code (from your Car Passport) to enable 'someone' to cut it for you.
    Then as long as that key has not been programmed to a different vehicle, you need someone with a suitable OpCom/VxCom/Tech2 facility to code the key to your car's immobiliser.
    If you have a boot release button inside your car, then I'd guess the boot release button on a 3 button fob should be capable of being active.




    Of course I could be wrong.

    Thats what i was thinking, but that means i would need new internals doesn't it? As anything else would be pre-registered. the internals are the only bits im finding hard to get lol

    Though im unsure what you mean with regards to the series of key?

    Where and what is this reffering to sir?

    I will go and check the boot release thingy, though i THINK this is only on the estates?

    With regard to 'key series' look on your car pass and you'll see the key code.... for my 54 3.2 GSi hatchback, I have H series 3 button keys so my code is H**** (* being numbers).

    Ok, that's the locking/unlocking. Now you have the blade profile and immobiliser transponder to deal with.

    Yep!

    Any idea where i can get one of them from? Someone told me if i can get a new transponder bit then i can use opcom to sort it, but finding one seems to be a major headache atm.

    I think you're getting into the realms of opening up your old key and trying to fit old parts into a new key.
    You could try just using OpCom to try and recode the new key you have.... who knows, you might get lucky!

    Well just remember the advice as far as this site is concerned is not to use any device or software that you have reason to believe may not be the original and full version. Full original OpCom retails in excess of £500 so if you choose to purchase and use anyhing cheaper, then it's at your own risk.
