How Do Vauxhall Car Keys Work?
All Vauxhall Cars sold since 1995 are equipped with a factory-fitted immobiliser system linked to a small glass chip embedded in the car key. The immobilizer system searches electronically for a transponder chip when a key is inserted into the ignition and turned. If the correct chip is present, the immobiliser system will allow the Vauxhall vehicle to start. If the immobiliser system fails to detect a chip, the fuel supply to the engine is cut off. This system is normally impossible to bypass, override or remove a Vauxhall immobilizer and still drive the vehicle. This process may be known in the industry as a “crypto coding system”.
Vauxhall car keys manufactured prior to 1995 contains no transponder chip, and this will significantly reduce the cost of a new car key. It is important to know that second hand chips and keys purchased via the internet will not start a Vauxhall vehicle, as it will first need to be diagnostically paired using dealer-standard equipment.

What If I Need My Vauxhall Car Key Duplicated?
If your Vauxhall vehicle only has one key that starts the engine, Car Keys Solutions strongly recommends that you purchase 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 you more than £100 if you unfortunately lost access to your vehicle.
Why Should You Choose Car Keys Solutions Over The Dealers?
If all of your keys are lost or broken, an authorised dealership can replace your Vauxhall car key – but this process can cost around £800 if all of you locks are changed. In addition to this, dealers are also likely to need the car to be transported to the dealership before they supply the new key. This can incur tow-truck charges if you have no other way to get it there, and you may also have to do this more than once. The entire process generally takes around 10 working day, because keys will need to be ordered in, often from abroad. After this, your key will then need to be programmed.
On the other hand, our highly trained Vauxhall car key specialists can usually provide you with a fully-working car key at the roadside, if all of your keys are lost. We can give you a quality replacement by cutting and programming a bespoke new key to the existing lock barrels and immobiliser. We will gain entry to your vehicle even if you are completely locked and also extract a snapped key from inside the lock and cut a replacement on the spot if a Vauxhall key or remote control FOB has become trapped. We will then programme your key on the spot, as you wait, while providing this service all at a fraction of the price that dealerships provide it at.
