    Default remote locking

    Hi just asking if anyone else has had a problem the same i had?
    Went out to car pressed button on remote and car didnt unlock, tryd it few times and nothing. Went in home to get spare key which is new and it unlocked, so tryd locking it again with original key again and nothing.
    So used new key and it locked. so just out of interest i swopped batterys over, that was a mistake cause after that none of the keys worked. So i unlocked car with the key in the door the alarm went off so put key in the ignition and started engine, alarm then stopped sounding and after went to lock car with remote and it worked, so i did this with the other key and a presto that worked to.
    Used the car and all seems ok now. ive not had the battery disconnected under bonnet at all. WHAT COULD HAVE HAPPENED?? any ideas anyone

    it's possible that your old key just needs to be re synced to the car i'm sure there is a how to

    Its possible for the key to unpair if the button is repeatedly pressed when out of range. I had it went my daughter and nephew got hold of my keys.

    the battery is low on your first key which is why it needed to be re synthesized

    Put key in the ignition turn it but don't start the car, press lock on the fob then unlock, your key should then be re-synced

    Had to do it to mine when I repaired the switch.

    Yes, that's one way to resync.

    There is another way for newer Vectra's as well - which is documented in the handbook (you know the one that no one bothers to read.)
