    Default Check safeguard keeps coming on display

    I've now got my vectra GSi back from expensive ecu & cim module replacement as before I put the car in for repair the display was saying check safeguard - I was told the immobiliser had burnt the ecu out.

    I've had the car back a few weeks and its started saying check safeguard again!!!

    I'm not sure what to do now, whether to replace the immobiliser with an aftermarket brand like Toad or Cobra or to give Vauxhall another chance to sort it? Car was repaired at Underwoods in Tiptree.

    Get the alarm codes read so you know whats at fault.

    Mine turned out to be a blown fuse.

    Never going to Blunderwoods again, they wanted £45 plus whatever it was for repairing the fault so I left quickly, they reset it and as soon as jumped in the car check safeguard came on again.

    And that was after I spent nearly £700 on new ecu and cim module...

    Basically I've lost patience with them, Hornet alarm and immobiliser will be replacing the one on the car end of this month...
