    Default Vectra c transponder problem help needed!!!!

    Hi all,

    I need some tech help please, got a vectra c 2.2 petrol, and the transponder around the ignition barrel has got damaged inside, so obviously the car now won't start! So I'm going to attempt to solder ithe 2 metal connectors to the transponder back on, an what i need to know is will the transponder need recodeing?
    And also if I get a new steering wheel column with the transponder in it, will it need coding in?
    Thanks!

    hello mate, pretty sure it wont need re-coding although if u were to put a second hand one on you will need to get it coded.

    If all you are changing is the code reader "coil" that goes around the ignition barrel area then no re-coding will be required as the key "chip" will still be recognised by the immobiliser ECU

    Soldering the wires may actually work so worth trying first anyway

    ashe said above the transponder is just a reader and doesnt need coded. it only reads the code and sends on the information.

    Brilliant, thanks alot, so even if I replace the coil, it still won't need recoding! Yr gonna try n solder it first tho, try n save some cash, just means taking the steering wheel off, but suppose it's not too big a job! Thanks again!
