Vauxhall /GM Opel
The immobiliser system on these vehicles requires a four digit pin code to be added before any new or replacement keys can be programmed. The vehicle would have come with a security pass containing the pin number. If the pass has been lost then most locksmiths will require you to apply for a replacement via your main dealer. The pass will cost approximately £25 and will take up to three working days to come through.
Dealers for these makes now require a copy of your photo driving license, front and insede V5 doc, and this to be sent as an email or text or they will not give out security codes.
You could be without your car for five days if you go elsewhere!
We can read the pin code from the immobiliser unit at the roadside and therefore cut out the waiting time and have you back on the road again without delay
Toyota / Lexus
Unlike most other vehicles incorporating this type of security system, If you require new or replacement keys, it is necessary to remove the engine control unit (ECU) from your vehicle.
The dealers will charge in excess of £1000 to rectify the problem and will set about replacing the immobiliser system.
We can rework the data in the existing units, therefore removing the need to replace them, at a significantly reduced rate, while you wait.
We can also erase data stored on previous keys that may have been stolen or retained by previous owners, giving you that extra peace of mind.
Peugeot / Citroen
Please note that in order to re-programme your keys, a 4-digit security code and radio-code are required. These numbers are stored on a blue plastic card found inside the service and handbook folder that should have been provided to you at the time you purchased your vehicle.
If you don't have these, don't worry. We have specialist equipment the enables us to read the pin codes from most of the immobiliser units and for those that cannot be read, we can obtain the information required by contacting your local Peugeot dealership, on your behalf.
The immobiliser system fitted to these vehicles requires a 4 Digit Secret Pin Code to be entered to enable the new replacement keys to be programmed.
Unlike most other manufacturers, VW/Audi Dealers DO NOT have access to the pin code for your vehicle. They cannot therefore provide you with the pin number despite what other people may have you believe.
This however is not a problem for us.
