    Default Vectra - no key - need advice please

    Hi All

    Got a vectra here but have no keys at all with it..
    Its a 2006 vectra exclusiv 150bhp..
    I have other spare keys from similar models but i was wondering if the chip was the same is it possible to reprogram the chip in this so that it will start this car instead of going new

    thanks

    Normally from a repossession which is then sold on.

    I think I would go to the trouble and expence of changing the locks. I would hate to think there were keys out there that would fit my car.
