    Default Spare Key triggers immobilizer

    Hi All

    Have tried to use my spare key in the vectra this morning, the engine turned over, started, then gave up and died. The engine light was flashing, on/off, the book says its the immobilizer. This key was the original one, till I changed the battery in the fob and started using the other key fob. It will open and close electric door - no prob. Tried turning the key in the ignition and pressing fob buttons, lights came on, on fob, but doors etc didnt lock, which is what usually happens. Maybe Im answering my own question, i dont know. How do I get this key fob to work without activating the immobilizer, if that is the problem?Any answers would be appreciate, thank you.

    Changing the fob battery won't make any difference as this is only needed for the remote central locking.
