    I reckon you are going to need to either get the fob repaired (you don't say what broke, so this may not be an option), or, get a new key.

    Should be able to get a new one from Vx if you have your car security pass (gives key code/security code) and possibly even get it less 25% if you register for the Vx Masterfit Scheme online (it's free but gives you 25% discount of parts and servicing).

    The cheapest way of doing this though would be to buy a "virginised fob" suitable for your car (around £40-£50 from ebay), get a blade cut to your car code again via ebay (around £10). Then get someone local to you with Tech2 or equivalent to program it to your car.

    Alarm annoyances gone

    I went to get the battery changed and when they opened it up something broke off so I presume I will need a new fob. I've asked in rowcliffes and they want £200 (to be honest I think I prefer the sound to paying that!)

    I would not want to be your neighbour if every time you opened the car the alarm went off. Its likely that the bit that broke off can be soldered back on or similar.

    You can't re-program a used key fob for a Vectra-C or Signum.

    Only thing you can do is either buy a fob which has had the chip replaced with a new one, or buy a new fob tht has never been programmed to a car before.
