Quick question(s) (I hope)... Some thieving git has had my keys away meaning I now only have one key for my car. This is slightly risky and I am also concerned as I part my car near to the gym where my keys were nicked.
I don't fancy paying Vauxhall anything so am going to have a go at resolving this problem myself...
Can I buy something like http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/2-BUTTON-REMOT...item230c9658f5 which consists of a new blade and new transponder chip along with a refurbed key fob
And then buy one of these: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...=STRK:MEWAX:IT
And then use Op-com software to do the following:-
1. Make the car forget the lost key transponder so the missing key can longer be used to start the car
2. Make the car forget the lost key fob so it cannot open the doors remotely
3. Program the new key with an immobiliser key so it can start the car
4. Program the refurbed key fob to arm/disarm the alarm and operate the central locking remotely
Finally get a blade cut (I assume a good lock smith can do this)?
Does the above sound feasible? This seems like the cheapest way of doing it (30 for the keyfob and blade, 30 for the op-com, 5-10 to get Timpsons to copy the key)... I want an op-com anyway...
As a further add-on, is there any particular issues with op-com's on eBay will all of them allow me to do the above operations? Does anyone recommend a particular seller?
All above said, how much can I get a key sorted and working in Leicester for?
