    Default Please can someone help ? vectra 2.2 sri dti

    I have a vectra c 52 plate sri dti 2.2.
    One day i went to start the car and nothing just lights on the dash board and a picture of a car with a pad lock through it came up looked in the manual and said the imobiliser is not reckoning the key. so my friend give the car to a friend he said he changed the modulator (dont no what one) and nothing so into vauxhall main dealers it went and they put a control modulator on and tried to programme a different key still nothing so i paid the bill of (£238.00) they wanted (£478.00) ?? then i had to tow it home and now its been stuck on me drive for 2 months is there anyone who could help in anyway.
    New to this so hope i done this right.

    Many thanks lee.

    2 months and i wouldn't have paid the dealers if they didn't sort it. There must be a simple reason, surely.

    Crank and cam sensors shut the car down when they go bad, not sure if the DTi has them though, PM Mark GSi he will know for certain.

    The Engine ECU is part of the immobilser system. If the ECU is faulty or 'blank' (know by experience lol) then that can cause this problem. Also the CIM also needs to recognise it too.. So could be either of them 2 causing the problem and not much else, surprised they havent picked up on this... and also the key transponder being faulty too..


    No other defects will cause this particular symbol (padlock) to come up.

    Not applicable in this case mate, although they can cause it to shut down as you say but not with the Padlock symbol showing in the dash, purely immobilser related.
