    Hello MarkT: the OPCOM program you mention above is interesting, can it do the usual diagnosis of engine troubles? Where can I buy a copy, what cost?

    thanks for the info Mark.what i noticed from your link is the transponder numbers.the numbers on my chip are pd79735s so it looks like i will have to get the pcf7931xp/c,as i have 1997 mk3 astra.
    i went to the vauxhall dealer and told them about the chip i bought from ebay,and they laughed and said they dont work and they can order a chip and program it for £80 + vat.i will try to get the right and let you guys know.thanks guys

    right guys i bought a chip from vauxhall £20 tried to program it,and i still dont get any coms fail/sucessful so i guess it has to be my opcom diag not operating correctly.so it looks like i have to take it to vaux and have them program it.
    unless you guys have a better plan.
    thanks guys

    plenty of people on here with opcom or TEch2s, post up a wanted in your area.

    Cheapest way for the MK3 astra keys is get one cloned by a key cutter.

    About £20 to cut a key and copy the immob id onto the new one.
