    Key button not working!

    The button on my key doesn't work.

    It works in the door and to start the car.

    It was the only key i was given with the car.

    I have changed the bat but still nothing.

    Does anyone knoe where or how to get this sorted?
    Also, where and how much to get another cut?

    Have you tried resetting it ?

    Put the key in the ignition and turn it (1 or two turns cant remember specifics)

    Then press a the lock button on the key to register it, the car should lock then unlock.

    Then remove the key and try it outside of the car.

    If this fails contact vauxhall for a replacement

    I think you'd have to get the key cut, as it will come blank, then put your transponder (I think that's what it's called, the small black chip inside the key for the immobiliser) into the new key and get it programmed.

    Saying that the key part unclips, so you could just use the new buttons and clip your key on. The astra's handbook shows all of this.

    Just try resetting it first mate, I think you'll find all the pressing of the button when you're outside of the cars sensor range can throw it off, I've done it many times. A simple reset solves all problems.

    Yeah it's meant to light up, have you checked the battery is up the correct way? If it still doesnt work after the reset then look on ebay for a replacement
