    Hi All, Facing a strange problem recently in my Vauxhall Zafira B Life. The central locking signal seems to be very weak. Changed batteries in both key fobs and still the same. Need to get very close to the car to get it locked/unlocked. Each day it seems to be worsening. Once inside the car...

    Cavalier, Calibra, Vectra, Signum, Sintra & Insign
    My 09 Insignia’s key fob has gone mental today. The unlock button locks, the boot open doesn’t open and the lock button does nothing. Nothing has been changed and the key will unlock the door manually but the alarm goes off for a second and it works in the ignition. I’ve tried a new battery but...

    Hello guys, happy new year to all. Unfortunately I’ve dropped my keys down the drain. I have bought the exact same fob from eBay, is it possible to program it to my car? Or have I just wasted my money buying it?
