    I've got the exact same problem with my astra also bought a couple of weeks ago... have you tried putting it in the ignition and pressing the buttons?
    If this doesn't work then the key will need to be reprogrammed to the car using tech 2 or opcom which vauxhall charge £50 for!

    Best bet is to find someone in your local area on here who has opcom/tech2 or buy one yourself which is what I'm doing

    hey, i had EXACTLY the same problem, geordie bandit posted me this solution and its worked ever since... he's the best at helping!!

    with regards the key, id advise removing the remote part away from the u-shaped section which contains the blade, u will see a small notch on the reverse where u can stick a small flatblade driver or similar to lever the 2 pars away from each other

    seperate the fob part in 2 - easily flips open - now get a piece of paper - fold it a few times to relatively same size as battery ish - and place on top of battery, close fob and refit to blade - probably a case of the contacts on the battery holder coming loose and doing this makes a better contact - albeit ideally temporarily - altho mines been like this for about 4yrs

    insert key in ignition turn to 2nd click - dont start engine, press lock button and with a bit of luck it will lock then auto unlock itself

    hope this helps like it helped me!! :-)

    seeing as no ones answered the question.....

    CR2032 is the battery u need

    as already said though, if it doesnt work like above then youll need it reprogrammed or replaced. easy enough if u know how

    post up ur location or ask in ur regional forum for someone to assist
