Lost Vauxhall Keys
Once you lose your car keys, you automatically go into panic mode. More so, since most dealers will tell you for a new key that you need a new lock, ignition barrel, and ECU box. Car Keys Solutions is an experienced car key replacement company that will provide you with a new key with same day service.
We can come to you at the roadside. We will unlock your car without damaging it, and we’ll make you a new key while you wait.
Spare Vauxhall Keys
If your Vauxhall vehicle only has one key, Car Keys Solutions strongly recommends 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.
We stock a wide range of Vauxhall keys. So you can rest assured we can program a new key for you as you wait. Whatever you need – be it a remote, fob, standard, or flip key – we can help.
It is important to note that Car Keys 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 key has a transponder chip that can only be programmed only once before becoming useless.
VAUXHALL CAR LOCKOUT
Our expert locksmiths are trained in secure techniques to gain entry into your car without leaving a scratch. If you have locked your car keys inside your car, we can gain entry and retrieve them quickly.
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 Key Repair
Vauxhall keys do breakdown from time to time. The following are some of the problem Vauxhall owners have experienced:
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 it’s useful to consider a replacement key.
The best option 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 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 offer 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 key repair service is applicable. The cost of repairing a car key is a fraction of that for a new replacement car key.
Understanding Vauxhall Keys
Vauxhall cars have a standard manual key, a remote key, or a keyless key. Regardless of key type, the blade profile is unique to the lock and your car’s ignition.
It’s also important to note that the original remote key design of the Vectra C and Astra H are no longer produced. The original design was replaced by the new flip-style fob. So you need not worry when auto locksmiths provide you with a key that doesn’t resemble the original, as often key manufactures release key upgrades over the years.
Whether you have a manual or remote key, it will have a transponder inside. 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. This means that these models can only use a remote key, and the chip cannot be lost when the key is taken apart.
Newer models such as the Vauxhall Insignia or Vauxhall Grandland X use keys with a proximity sensor – these are referred to as ‘keyless keys’. This proximity sensor allows starting the car by pressing of a button rather than turning the key as is the case with classic cars. Such keys are not too complicated for Car Keys Solutions to replace.
The Vauxhall Key Replacement Process
The first step of the car key replacement process is to determine the key number. With the key number, we can cut and file a key to fit your lock. Then, we can unlock your car with the new key. But the process is not over until we program the key to actually open and start your vehicle.
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
What If You Do Not Have The Codes Required For the Car Key Replacement?
You may have misplaced the car pass, or perhaps not had it 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 and specialist equipment and software required to obtain the information needed 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 for 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 unlikely event we’re unable to get the code, we can retrieve it from the main Vauxhall dealer as we’re an authorised auto locksmith. Once the security code is obtained, the transponder chip or the remote key will be programmed to the immobiliser system.
