If our locksmiths are struggling to reprogram a car key into the system via the ECU, BCM or the Instrument Cluster. We can sometimes perform something called a technique called an EEPROM on the Vehicle Immobiliser System. The usual way in which a key is programmed to the car is from the obd socket. On older Vauxhall cars rather than newer ones' communication from our machinery to the car cannot be obtained. This is where the EEPROM technique is handy to us locksmiths. We take out the module in which the immobile is located for the vehicle on which we are working on. Then program the car key direct to it rather than using the OBD socket trying to find its way through the Can Bus system or Analogue as the circuits may be damaged in some shape or form.
If you are a Trader, Mechanic or An Auto Locksmith we supply EEPROM work for all trades. We ask that you call us first to make sure it is a module we cover for EEPROM work and then we can advise on what to do next. We supply this service for most of the Vauxhall Car range.

On many of the Vauxhall older car range what actually happens is one of the modules loses their synchronisation to the vehicle and data gets corrupted which is why the key sign appears.
