Has anyone on here coded new keys to a vauxhall.

Reason I ask is I've been asked to code a new key to a Vectra but have read on some Vauxhall forums that it can be troublesome i.e car gets stranded a won't start as op-com won't code key/s successfully.

I ask here because I know that some vauxhall forums hate the op-com kit and just rubbish it.

Don't want to kill someone's car especially on my drive!!

If no replies might have to experiment on wife's astra

Martin, do you know for a fact that you cannot code a second hand key. Have you tried as I was going to buy one and give it a go but if you have already done so then I wont bother.....:thumb:

The transponder chip is a one shot deal. You can buy the chips off the internet or if you know anyone at Timpsons :thumb:

I can easily get a transponder chip, I recently transferred my old style over to the flip blade type and it works perfect.

I was left with a blade and empty key fob. I bought a new transponder chip and coded it to my 307.

Both keys start car fine but the spare has no circuit board so no central locking function.

So I wanted to get a second hand key and put the circuit board in my spare key and hopefully code it.

I can say for a fact(as Ive tried), that the circuit board is matched to your car

Sorry Daffy I meant for the Vauxhall not the 307. I thought you were asking about that with all the other mails being for the Vauxhall.

Hi

i program keys to Vauxhalls on a regular basis using Opcom. As long as the transponder is brand new & the correct chip id for the car then it's pretty straight forward.

You'll also possibly need the 4 digit security car pass to unlock the system to allow you to adapt new keys dependign what year Vectra it is.

If it's an early Vectra A then there is other software that can extract the pin code. It also works on other Vx's. Generally older models though.

I have an MVP key programmer & it can also extract pin codes on certain models. As far as Vx cars go the newest i've extracted the pin on was a 2005 Corsa C & Tigra B.

If your mate hasn't got the car pass then it can be bought from Vx but he'll need V5 & id. They charged me £30 when i had my Vec C.

My key supplier can also get me pin codes. I think they charge £20+vat for vx codes
