    Default emboliliser problem on 2002 1.8LS

    First of all i would like to say that i havent got a clue about cars i am a complete noob.
    I bought a Vectra c 1.8ls and it was running great for a few months now i have a problem,i was out on Friday and for a few hours then returned to my car and put key in ignition,i got the car with a pad lock light.
    I effentually got the car moving after removing the big fuses in the fuse box beside the battery housing and replacing them.When i got home i switched off the car and guess what the same light with the car lock came on in the dashboard.
    The next morning i tried and the light stayed off so i was like happy days,i did a few short journeys and everything seemed fine.Last night (sunday) i went to get the missus some flowers and a card for valentines got back in the car and the same light car and pad lock came on again.I pressed the luggage button on the key and the indicators flashed once,i tried the key and sweet it was gone again.
    Any ideas what could be causing this?
    This is my first problem so i dont want to rant on too much any help appreciated
    Thanks
    Tony

    I have already replaced the cars battery (about 5 weeks ago) and the battery in the remote (key) on Saturday.
    Do i have to bring it to a vauxhall dealer to get a computer reading or can the average mechanic use his own computer?
