Once you lose your car keys, you automatically go into panic mode. More so, since most dealers will tell you for a new key, you need a new lock, ignition barrel, and ECU box.

Spare Vauxhall Car Keys
If your Vauxhall vehicle only has one key that starts the engine, Car Keys Solutions strongly recommends that you get a second set of keys so, in case of an emergency or if the key that you currently have gets lost, you still have a backup set. Being proactive can save yourself of great inconvenience and a dent in your pocket if you, unfortunately, will lose your only car key.

It is important to note that Car Key Solutions uses manufacturer level software. So, you can rest easy knowing that your car locking system is in safe hands. Essential to know we cover car key programming on any model of Vauxhall no matter how new.
We do not recommend buying Vauxhall replacement keys and fobs on eBay, Amazon, or scrapyards. It is almost impossible to program such keys into your Vauxhall van or car. Why? Each Vauxhall car key has a transponder chip that can only be programmed only once before becoming useless.

CAR LOCK REPAIR/ IGNITION BARREL REPAIR
Sometimes it isn’t the key that is the problem – it can be the lock. If you are having problems with a door lock or the ignition barrel, then our Car Key Solutions experts can provide you with a quick and efficient service.
Damaged Vauxhall Keys Repair
Vauxhall car keys do breakdown from time to time. The following are some of the problem Vauxhall owners experience:
There are several Vauxhall keys that break, sometimes even in the ignition or lock. If this is your situation, we can remove the broken key and provide you with a new Vauxhall key replacement or repair it on the spot.
On models such as Astra, Zafira, and Vectra, the remote often stops working. Mostly the culprit is the battery housing breaking from the circuit board. In cases of faulty remotes, there are two solutions. The first is the fix where we pad and solder the battery housing to the circuit board. However, for long term guarantee is useful to consider a replacement key.
The best option, therefore, is to program a new key to your vehicle.
Immobiliser light flashing and the vehicle won't start
Several problems cause this problem. These include:
- the key’s microchip is broken, a common issue in Signum and Vectra models produced after 2002.
- the microchip is lost, a common problem in Vauxhall vehicles predating 2005.
- the immobiliser goes out of sync; a common problem is seen on Vauxhall Corsa D when the battery goes down. Find out more here.
Or, the problem is not with the key or immobiliser system but the vehicle’s electrical system. Either way, we have specialists and equipment who will diagnose the problem and come up with a solution.
Keep in mind that, with a faulty key, it might be possible to repair rather than replace it. But that does depend on the key problem. Contact us first if you have a faulty Vauxhall key and ask if the key repair service is applicable. Repairing a car key cost is a fraction from a new replacement car key.
Understanding Vauxhall Car Keys
Vauxhall cars have a standard manual key, remote key or keyless key. Regardless of key type, the blade profile is unique to the lock and ignition of your car lock.
Another important note is that the original design remote keys that came with Vectra C and Astra H are no longer produced. The original design was replaced with the new flip-style fobs. The point is, you need not worry when auto locksmiths provide you with a key that does not resemble the original, as often key manufactures release upgrades on car keys.
Whether you have a manual or remote key, it does have a transponder. The transponder is a small chip hidden in the key that deactivates the vehicle’s immobiliser system allowing the car to start. However, newer models have this chip in the PCB. That means that these models can only use a remote key, and the chip cannot be lost when the key is taken apart.
Newer models like the Vauxhall Insignia or Vauxhall Grandland X, use keys with a proximity sensor called keyless keys. This proximity sensor allows starting the car by pressing a button rather than turning the key as is on classic cars. Such keys are not too complicated for Car Key Solutions to replace.
The Vauxhall Car Key Replacement Process
The first step into the car key replacement process is determining the key number. With the key number, we can cut and file a key to fit your lock. Then, we unlock your car with the new key. But, the process is not over until we program the key to open and start your vehicle.
What Is Needed To Replace A Vauxhall Car Key?
There are two critical pieces of information required to replace a Vauxhall key. The first is the key number. The key number helps in the cutting of the blade to fit your lock.
The other critical information needed is the security code. The security code is required to program the transponder chip and remote.
These two pieces of information are available in the Vauxhall car pass, a piece of paper found in the manual supplied with the car. In older models manufactured before 2004, the key number is also in the ECU.
What If You Do Not Have The Codes Required For Car Key Replacement?
You might have misplaced the car pass, or never even had it in the first place of you bought a second hand Vauxhall. No need to fret. We can still provide you with a new key for your car. We have the tools and specialised equipment and software required to get the information we need to make a new key for your Vauxhall car or van.
The key number is not a big issue as we can simply decode the lock and extract the key code to which the key needs to be cut. This process involves a tool that picks and reads the lock.
As for the transponder chip programming, we have software that can extract the security code. In the rare event, we are unable to get the code; we will retrieve them from Vauxhall main dealer as we’re authorised, the auto locksmith. Once security code is obtained transponder chip, or the remote key will be programmed to the immobiliser system.
