    Default Anyone recommend a dealer to reprogram my CID

    Ok so I've got a 'Virginised' CD70, which can slot in and be programmed via Tech 2 no problem. However I have a CID which is still 'married' to the car it came out of and I don't have the details of it, PASS code pin etc. I have it on good authority that I can work around this by

    With tech 2 go to:
    Infotainment system-->DIS-->Special functions-->Read ECU Identification. Then read the VIN number of the vehicle that your display has been programmed. With the VIN number try to find the 4 digit pin code from a vauxhall dealer (you will be charged for that). With this pin code go to infotainment system-->>DIS-->>Programming-->>Reset ECU. Then program your DIS with your cars pin code and finally plug your EHU and program it to your new display.

    Now I've heard that Vauxhall dealers are often not keen to give out security details to you without a V5. And obviously if I don't own the car the screen originally came out then I haven't got a V5.

    So I asked Evans Halshaw at Chilwell, Nottingham near where I work if they would do the full procedure above which would mean they could get the PASS code for the donor vehicle, but would not ever have to divulge the info to me. They said it couldn't be done, despite me showing them the instructions above.

    I actually can get the Tech 2 programming done elsewhere, so I said ok then if I get the VIN number details off the screen can you get me (sell me) the 4 digit pin (PASS code) details for the donor vehicle ? They say no, there is no such database. So I say so what if you need the PASS Code and someone has lost it. To which they replied that you give them the VIN number. They send it away to HQ. A new PASS code is created and they then have to re-program your car. It is not possible to get back the original PASS code.

    I know this to be wrong, but they were adamant about it.

    So can anybody recommend a Vauxhall dealer please who can either do the full procedure or at least get me (sell me) the PASS Code detail translation from the donor vehicle VIN from the screen from my helpful Tech 2 person.

    I live in Chesterfield and work in Beeston, Nottingham, but am happy to travel more or less anywhere for someone to do the job right

    Either that or is there any other way to get the PASS code info translation.

    afaik mate if you want security code for the car it came from you will need log book for car there are people who can decode screens and set them to delivery mode but you will be hard pushed to goto a dealers with a chassis number and ask them to get you a security code for a car you dont own

    Bit of a short trek for you, but I would recommend midpoint garage in northwich near crewe...

    They only charge 2/3 the price that vauxhall does, and they DO know what they are doing. Had mine done there by the boss...good man!!

    Everything is done by appointment, so it can be arranged to suit you (even saturdays).

    Check their website and give them a call..

    Not sure, but regarding everything else...they are the dogs danglies

    If there is a way round it, they will know it...but I am sure they will want to take all the security precautions that Vx do. They are far too professional not to.

    Hence why I said phone up first.

    Thanks everyone.

    I didn't really think a Dealer would give me a security code, but I can't see why they couldn't do the work from beginning to end. Find the code for themsleves to do the job and never need to give me it.

    But certainly in this case, they really did give the impression that they couldn't rather than wouldn't if you see what I mean. Impossible to do was their stance rather than anything around security etc.

    Anyway I've got some options now. I've had a look on that Belgian website and it looks promising. It says they can decode all Vectra screens... So I've sent 'em an email.

    I'll report back here to let everyone know how I get on
