LOST VAUXHALL KEYS

It’s so easy to start panicking when you realise you can’t find your car keys. And the panic can only get worse when your local Vauxhall dealership calmly tells you you’re not only going to need a new key, you’re also going to have to have a new lock, ignition barrel and Electronic Control Unit (ECU). And then of course there’s the wait involved, the cost of a hire car to keep you on the move … and then the huge bill you’re presented with at the end of it all.

But there’s no need for any panic: just one call to our friendly customer service department from anywhere in London and the Home Counties, and one of our mobile technicians will be with you in less than sixty minutes. He can create a whole new key for you, program it, synchronise it with your Vauxhall – all while you wait – and yes, you’ll get a bill with your new key, but it’s going to be just a fraction of the amount a dealership would demand.

SPARE VAUXHALL KEYS

If you’ve only got the one key for your Vauxhall, then we really do recommend you have it duplicated. It’s an easy, fast and inexpensive service we offer, and when you think of something untoward happening to that one and only key you have and the inconvenience you’re going to have to deal with as a result, you’ll understand why we say it’s not an expense – it’s an investment.

And no matter what kind of duplication you need, whether it’s a remote, fob, standard or flip key, we have the technology and expertise to get it done for you.

And we really don’t advise you to buy a second-hand Vauxhall key or fob – the microchip inside it (a.k.a. the transponder chip) has been programmed to synchronise with just the one previous vehicle, and can’t be reprogrammed for yours.

Car Keys Solutions, though, has the most up to date hardware and software to program a new transponder chip in a matter of minutes and make sure it synchs with your Vauxhall – no matter which model you own.

UNLOCKING VAUXHALL DOORS

Keys locked in your Vauxhall? And you’re stuck outside your car? The situation isn’t as hopeless as it might feel: our automobile locksmith specialists can get to you within an hour anywhere in London and the Home Counties to open up your car doors quickly and safely – without leaving so much as the tiniest mark anywhere.

VAUXHALL DOOR LOCK / IGNITION BARREL REPAIR

Problem with your door lock? Or with the ignition barrel? We can be with you in less than sixty minutes to solve that problem for you. If your key refuses to turn … or if the blade has broken off in the lock or barrel … or even if the lock or barrel is so worn that the key just won’t work properly there any more, we’ve got the skills and equipment to solve that problem for you – quickly and cost-effectively.

VAUXHALL KEY REPAIRS

Even the toughest of car keys is vulnerable to some kind of damage, and here’s some of the problems Vauxhall owners have experienced:

BROKEN KEY

If roughly handled, over time a Vauxhall key blade can weaken to the point where it snaps off either in the car door or in its ignition barrel.

We have the equipment and skill to remove that blade and replace it – or even replace the whole key – for you, right there and then.

FAULTY REMOTE

Remotes can stop working mainly because the battery housing has become disconnected from the main circuit board. One solution we can offer is padding the battery housing and re-soldering it to the circuit board. We can’t promise that it’s going to be a long-term solution, though – instead, we’d recommend replacing your remote completely.

FLASHING IMMOBILISER LIGHT / VEHICLE WON’T START

There could be several causes of this problem, including:

A broken microchip in the key – a common fault in post-2002 Signums and Vectras.

A lost microchip – common in pre-2005 models

Immobiliser system de-synchronises

Fault in the vehicle’s electrical system – often due to low battery power.

Whatever the cause, we have the specialists and dealer-level technology to diagnose the problem and provide the solution.

If your key is the problem, it’s possible to repair it rather than replace it – and for a fraction of the cost of a new replacement key. So do get in touch if you have a faulty Vauxhall key to see how we can help you.

ABOUT VAUXHALL KEYS

Vauxhall vehicle keys can take the form of:
Standard manual
Remote
Keyless
No matter which type of key, the blade profile will only work with its car’s locks and ignition barrel – none other.
Vauxhall have been upgrading their keys over the years – the original remote key design for the Vectra C and Astra H, for example, has been replaced by a new, flip-style fob. So there’s no need to worry if a replacement key style doesn’t match that of the original.
Both manual and remote key styles contain a transponder – a microchip that responds when queried by the vehicle’s immobiliser system. If the response isn’t precisely what the immobiliser is expecting, then the system prevents the engine from starting. Transponders for newer Vauxhall model keys are hardwired into their circuit boards.
Keyless keys, for models such as the Insignia or Grandland X, don’t have a blade to open doors or start the engine – it’s all done through a proximity sensor, so as soon as the keyless key is close enough to the outside of the vehicle the doors unlock automatically. And once the key is physically inside the car, the engine will start at the press of a button.
And if anything untoward happens to a keyless key, there’s no need to worry – even though they’re extremely complicated, they’re not too complicated for us to replace!

VAUXHALL KEY REPLACEMENT

First of all, we need to determine the code number on the key that needs replacing, so we can create a key blade that fits your car’s door locks. It won’t open them yet, though, until the transponder in the key itself is programmed to respond to the vehicle’s immobiliser system so the doors will unlock and the engine will start.

But where to get that key number from? And that transponder code?
They’re both found in the Vauxhall Car Pass supplied with the vehicle, and for older vehicles – pre-2004 – the Electronic Control Unit (a.k.a the ECU) also holds the key number.

WHAT IS NEEDED TO REPLACE A VAUXHALL KEY?

There are two critical pieces of information required to replace a Vauxhall key. The first is the key number which helps in the cutting of the blade to fit the lock.

The other critical piece of information needed is the security code which 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 can also be found in the ECU

MISSING VAUXHALL KEY CODES

You may have misplaced the key and transponder codes, or perhaps not even had them in the first place if you bought a second-hand Vauxhall. Don’t worry, we can still provide you with a new key for your car. We have the tools, specialist equipment and software to get that information to make a new key for your Vauxhall car or van.

The key number isn’t a big issue as we simply use a tool to pick and read the lock to extract the code to use for cutting a new key.

As for the transponder chip programming, we have software that can retrieve the security code your Vauxhall’s immobiliser system is looking for

In the unlikely event we’re unable to get the code, we can get it from the main Vauxhall dealer as we’re an authorised auto locksmith. Once the security code is obtained, we then program the transponder chip or the remote key to synchronise with the immobiliser system.

EMERGENCY VAUXHALL KEY REPLACEMENT

If you’re stuck in the middle of nowhere or parked outside your home and you have to be somewhere in a hurry but your Vauxhall key is either broken or missing, that definitely comes under the heading of “emergency”. But there’s no need to panic because we’re ready to create and program a replacement key for you from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm seven days a week, and can be with you within an hour anywhere in London and the Home Counties.

VAUXHALL DEALER … OR CAR KEYS SOLUTIONS?

There’s nothing wrong with trusting a Vauxhall dealership to create and program new keys for your vehicle. That’s as long as you’ve got the time and money to spare. And as long as you don’t mind arranging for your Vauxhall to be towed there so they can make any additional adjustments to your vehicle’s security system.

The problem is, though, that no car dealership is equipped to deal with any key-related issue in a hurry: you may have broken or lost your key, or you may even have locked yourself outside your Vauxhall … and dealerships can’t sort that out by the roadside, in your office carpark or while you’re relaxing at home in the evening - while you wait.

But we can, and at a much affordable price than a dealership, plus a twelve-month warranty and that’s what we’ve done for thousands of very happy customers – just have a look at all the glowing reviews they’ve left for us!

So … dealership or Car Keys Solutions? The choice is yours!
