    Help My alarm!!

    Help!

    I'm at my girlfriends, and I locked my Astra using the keyfob. Now I go back to the car, and for some reason the keyfob won't now let me unlock it. If I open the door using the key the alarm is gonna go off!!

    I've put a new battery in the fob, and it's still not working!

    Any suggestions??

    Factory Vauxhall alarm?

    If so yes when you open the door the alarm will go off but as soon as the key is switched on in the ignition the car will recongise the transponder signal and disarm the alarm

    lol....i had this the other day,

    i just unlocked the car, then locked it again with the key, set the alarm with the key in the lock (hold to lock again then return to normal postion) then once the alarm was set unlocked it again with the key

    im sure theres an easier way but i just did it automatically and it worked,
