    Hi All,
    Purchased A 2006 Vectra 1.9 cdti 150bhp That Had No Key.. Its Actually Was Lying Up Not Going For About 10 Months..
    Anyway Car Was Displaying The Miles On The Clock ..
    When I Got The Guy Out From Main Dealer To Reprogram The Key, The Mileage Went After This But Can Be Sure If Caused By Him Or Was About To Go Anyway..

    The Car Is Starting Ok But Has No Power, Will Drive Along At 15mph Its Also The Got Abs Light On, Power Steering Light ( No Power Steering In Car At All) Engine Management Light And As Said Above Dash Clock Not Working, Road Of 4 Dashes Where Mileage Should Be And Speedo Clock Etc Gone Too.. Also The Car With The Spanner In It Comes On Now And Then Too

    I Have A Autel Scanner But Wont Work Properly On Car As Only Bring Up 1 Fault The Air Mass Meter P0100.. The Guy At The Garage Put His Device On It And It Brought Up Nothing At All ..

    Someone mentioned that one fault can affect the others too

    Anyone able to help please Thanks

    think you have just found out the reasons why it was sitting idle for 10 months.

    Did you not get a test drive before you brought it?

    Is it not a pain putting a capital letter at the start of every word?

    hi it was a repossession and got no key with it so sold as seen no test drive...

    Spoke to main dealer and he says that one electrical fault for example the dash clock may affect the others and bring on other warning light but he told me its sounds very serious and needs it in but they charge 60quid a hour i think

    To be honest I think you have to start with someone with Tech 2 such as the dealer. I would imagine that it is going to be very costly and I hope you paid a very low price for the car. I would have thought that it was sold with no key for a reason so you could not test drive and then find all the faults. I doubt it was a repro and they only gave this reason so they had an excuse why you could not test drive it. I would sell it for spares if you paid a really low price for it to try and get your money back
