HI my son lost the remote key for his 2005 corsa c.
I have purchased a new key with ID40 chip
I have been able to program the remote using Opcom but programming the immobiliser fails
On first try it has registered a new key, number 3 but the chip programming failed.
Future attempts get the message non transponder key
I did clear some fault codes relating to transponder programming failure but it doesn't want to recognise the chip in the new key

I can see that I can delete all keys but loath to do that as I don't want to mess up the one working key that I have.

Any ideas?

It could be the opcom but it's more likely to be a dodgy chip,
when i was working as a Vx specialist i sold and programmed hundreds of ID40's,
the only really reliable ones are the Phillips like this>

The ID 40 chip you have is actually an ID45 for a Peugeot.
That would be why it didn’t work then
Thanks, I have ordered a new one based on the previous post. Time to have words with the seller....

Andyl, could you let me know where you got the data that says my chip is an ID45 from a Peugeot?
It would help me when speaking to the seller, thanks

Generally the chips are pre programmed to type/manufacturer then you can program them to the car with opcom,
Andyl may well be correct,i'm really not sure,
Having been caught a few times if a customer ever came to me with one of these chips i'd just bin it and use a Phillips which i know will work 👍

Ok so my new transponder has arrived.
Just want to ensure I have the sequence correct. I remember last time I was asked to insert the key in the ignition to programme the transponder but I already had the key in the ignition to power up the car. Should I use a good key to get to that point?
But then I would have to turn the ignition off to insert the new key.
Appreciate your help as I don’t want to make any mistakes.

Just put the key with new transponder in and switch on the ignition, follow the programming instructions on screen
