    Default several questions, 1 issue, new key

    hi guys,
    being a cheap git i went and bought a second hand vectra key off the web,

    got a blade cut

    soldered a few bits and using op-com got it coded to my car.

    it starts the engine, and manually opens the door.

    my questions are as follows

    1. if im manually opening the door using my key should all four 4 door pins pop up?

    2. all the digits on both key casings are exactly the same so the frequency should be the same. i have a may 2007 cdti sri flip key so which synchronization method should i use?

    3 lastly when i unlock the car the car alarm goes off but the second the key is put in the ignition the car alarm stops and the car is completely startable.

    any light shed on this is greatly appreciated.

    Regards

    Dave

    There are two options; full open or drivers door only
    I have mine set to drivers door only

    Unlocking the car by remote, or by inserting the key in the drivers door lock?
    If it is the drivers door lock, then that is correct
    Normally this is required when synchronisation is lost, and inserting the key into the ignition will silence the alarm
    You may then need to press lock and unlock on the handset to resynchronise, then remove from the igintion barrel
    This typically happens to me once a month, quite annoying when you walk up to the car and don't notice it didn't unlock

    unlocking via the door lock, cant synchronize the fob seems to be issue.

    i keep setting off the alarm but simply putting the key in the ignition turns off the alarm. Thankfully lol.

    i am a little lost on how to synchronize. the book says to simply put the key in drivers door and unlock....that hasnt resolved the remote locking unlocking issue. maybe i have picked up the wrong frequency fob, but it appears to have all the same codes on the casing 433mhz xx.xxx.xxx etc

    thanks for the help mate. any more advice apprectiated.
