    Default Cim problem?

    Hi All,

    My Vectra started not recognising the key intermitantly, took it to the stealers and they said I needed a new key. Got this and worked for about a week and started playing up again.

    Revisited Vauxhall and they can't fault it, but suggested it would be the CIM. Got told this would be £200.

    Took it in today and they phoned me saying the cost was £450.

    Anyone have any ideas whats going on? the actual price of a CIM? if this will even cure the problem? Really don't want to be spending this much on the car, want shot really.

    £468 to fit a new one to my Vectra.

    If you are going to go to Vx to get one and have it fitted, i would get them to offest the cost of the new key against it.

    Thanks, sounds like someone made a mistake saying allow £200 then.

    Will try to get them to offset the cost of the key if I go ahead with them cheers Aidi.

    Many thanks Rushy,

    Will get my car back tomorrow and give this a go.

    Every now and again whilst driving the fault light will come on and the indicators, wipers etc won't work. Agin no faults seem to be stored.

    No probs mate, but I fear your 2005 car may just fall out of the faulty plug age range, but its well worth a try and its free.
