    New Mk4 key?

    Bought an Astra mk4. Has 2 keys, one without buttons on just a basic one and one with buttons but didnt work. Opened up the case and the battery had leaked all over the circuit board and a tiny chip fell out. So obviously it doesnt work. Dont know why that happened but oh well.
    So what do i need exactly? The key still starts the car and manually opens the doors.

    Looking for the cheapest option. Can i get the key off Ebay or do i have to go direct to Vauxhall and if so how much will it cost?
    Thanks

    You can get the remote from ebay but the car still needs to be programmed to it.

    You can always get a astra mk4 keyfob from ebay and then ask vauxhall how much it'll be to program the keyfob to unlock and lock the car... as long as you swap the immobiliser chip over though!


    EDIT:



    the small chip there, keep that :P and you should be able to get vauxhall to program the keyfob... providing your going to be using the original keyblade too. (or a blank one cut)

    There are two types of remote key, you need to get the correct one.
    One is for remote central locking, the other is for cars with alarms & central locking.
    They're not interchangeable.

    Well mine doesnt have an LED so does that mean i need to get one without an LED then cause theres one on Ebay with an LED im watching.
    Mine doesnt have an alarm either.

    Have a look at the board itself as there will be some numbers on it.

    I know but on Ebay not everyone quotes the numbers. Surely the one with the LED will be for the alarm?
