well guys its been a little while, so here is what i have been facing. remote fob stopped working, turn out to be the battery holder came away from the board. being a cheap arse i went to local auto electrics place to see if they could re-solder it. well two broken key-fobs later I decided I had wasted enough the cheap way. went to local Perry's vauxhall to get the security code for the car, I wasn't putting a lot of faith in hoping the ECU had not been changed since new. £35 and 3 days later I got a call from Perry's, they had all the codes for the car, "Bonus" but i have to wait 2 week for the little card. i made arrangements to go get the codes from them. after some pratting about with them over the codes they had miss placed since ringing me I finally had them in hand and headed home. in the mean time I ordered 2 more key-fobs and a transponder so I would have a spare key as well. using a nice piece of kit, I entered the security key i was dismayed to the fact it didn't accept it. I was on the verge of scrapping the car, but something told me to ring Perry's and check the code with what they had. luckily i did as the moron had written the code down wrong. tried the correct code and all went through and programmed up nicely. this now means i need a new key for the spare transponder and key-fob, I can tell you guys that Timpson's "www.timpson.com" will charge £15 for the privilege of supplying a new key so there you go what a run around, in end it cost me nearly £100 just to get sorted so i can lock my car and have a spare key.
