    confused Issues on getting a new key

    Hi guys I only received 1 non flip key with my 2002 2.2dti vectra when I bought her, my key's buttons are starting to play up and as we are due our first child I want a spare but I have a few questions. Firstly on my key I was expecting to find a crypto chip beneath the horseshoe key part but there isnt one? does this mean it might have a Fixed code Transponder? as this would be cheaper to clone rather than buy new and tech 2 it to the motor. Next I did look into getting a new key and was gonna be charged £156 for the key and coding it to the car, the chap said they no longer make the horseshoe key and it would get a flip type key but he said my ecu wouldnt accept new keys. Is it right about the flip key and if so did the price sound right? if he couldnt get the ecu to accept a new key does this mean the ecu is knackered?? if so is it possible to change them on the 2.2 dti? as i though it was part of the fuel pump. Phew sorry about this huge message with loads of questions ive unfortunately got to the end of my knowlage. Thankyou for any info any of you can give me.

    I had a problem the other week with my key I got a second hand one off the guy at work put my chip in and works the car fine, but I,m guessing if you don,t have one I,m not sure how the key would work?

    No idea to be honest, but I've got a flip key with my 2002 2.2DTI, so you can get them to work.

    I bought the car with the keys like that as the 'spare' non-flip is knackered!
