My Vauxhall key is broken do I need to replace it?

Vauxhall keys are renowned for falling apart and breaking. If you key is broken it may be possible for us to make a quick repair rather than replace the whole key. Having said that it really does depend on the key as some Vauxhall keys still need to be replaced should they become broken or damaged.

Vauxhall car keys explained

Vauxhall vehicles operate with a number of key types. A standard manual key will open the door and start the car when turned in the ignition. A remote locking Vauxhall key will do the same, with the added functionality of locking and unlocking the car from buttons on the key fob. There are a few variations of the blade profiles on each key type. It is useful to note that the original style remote keys supplied with the Astra H and Vectra C are no longer produced and have been superseded by new flip style key fobs. Our car locksmiths know this so there is no need to worry if your replacement Vauxhall key fob looks slightly different to your original.

Both manual and remote locking keys contain a transponder key. This is not actually a key but rather a small chip concealed within the key that serves to deactivate the vehicle’s immobiliser box and allows the car to start. The transponder chip is now integrated into the remote PCB meaning only a remote key can be coded to the car and there is no chip to lose from the key when taken apart.

The latest models of Vauxhall Insignia’s now use a proximity style key which allows the car to be started at the push of a button. We can provide these keys and program them to your Vauxhall, even when all keys are lost.

steps for replacing a lost Vauxhall key

Programming replacement Vauxhall keys

Vauxhall cars are very popular in the UK so we frequently provide replacement Vauxhall car keys. We have invested in software that is able to extract the security code to reprogram keys to the car’s immobiliser box. In fact, we can provide the full range of remote lock and keys for all Vauxhalls.

For replacement Vauxhall keys the two pieces of information required are the “key number” for cutting the key blade and the “security code” for programming the transponder chip and remote locking fob. This information is held on your Vauxhall car pass, a credit card sized piece of paper that is usually found in the front perspex of the black leather manual folder that is supplied with the car.

Can you cut Vauxhall keys if I do not have the codes?

You may have lost or misplaced this piece of information or never received it if the car was purchased second hand. Do not worry as our mobile locksmiths can still provide you with replacement Vauxhall keys – many other locksmiths are unable to do this because they have not invested in the specialist tools and equipment required to extract the required information.
