    Default Car With Padlock Warning Light??

    Sorry. I must first apoligise as i'm posting this on behalf of a friend. He phoned me this morning to see if i knew what this warning light is. He drives an 04 2.0 club. He tells me that it is a car with a padlock through it and the car wont start. My missus is away in my car so i'm unable to look it up in the manual. Can anyone please help me. Thanks in advance

    Means the car thinks its the wrong key in the ignition.. The key has a little black bit in it which is the transponder, make sure that hasnt fallen out. Other possibility is the CIM.

    unfortunatly he's like me and doe's not have a spare key. Is there anyway you can reprogamme the key from inside the car as if the battery in the key was dead. I beleive you could do something similar in the vectra b?

    Its the computer module in the steering wheel I believe. It can cost around £400-£500 to replace and fit by VX.
