Hi there chaps,
Does anyone have an idea as to what a Vauxhall dealer might charge for re-programming a Corsa C key so that it will work with my car? I can't find my spare :(

Cheers,
Dan :)

its in the manual and you don't need to pay, you can do it yourself.

Just checked the car manual.

It reads:

synchronising remote control:

  • Switch on Ignition; system will then remain in synchronising mode for 30 seconds
  • Briefly press button (either open or close option) on the remote control unit while the unit is in the ignition.
  • The central locking system locks and unlocks to show that the remote control has been synchronised.

Thats only synchronising a pre coded key back to the car!
Coding a new 1 in requires tech 2 as you need to programme in immobiliser codes etc!!

why not pull the chip out of the old key then put it into the new key then there is no need to get it reprogrammed. should work ok. pain in the ass that you can't code the vaux keys like the ford ones
