Holden cruze immobiliser

My daughter dropped her key and someone ran over it we have opened it up as she said she could hear something rattling turned out to be the battery.... everything looks fine obviously the plastic part of the key is broke but the internal where the central locking parts are look fine but I am wondering if it is a transponder problem? I would check this but I wouldn't know where it is

SOURCE: imobiliser problem

If im not mistaken,your car should have an alarm reset/override.Below the steering column,on the dash should be a slot where you put your remote transmitter to deactivate the alarm.If that works,you then need to have your remote checked and coded by a vw dealer.Good luck.

SOURCE: I have the same problem with my Daewoo Lanos

The transponder key has a chip in it.That is a programmed chip.But if this transponder key is not working then ,you will have to get the another transponder key,the other option is you can get the another key made from the local lock smith and then get the key programmed from the lock smith or from the dealer.Some lock smiths have the key programming device but if there is no lock smith in your area then you will have to get the key programmed with your dealer.Also you can try your preset key getting it re-programmed and check if it supports. ----------------- The exact procedure in which the transponder key works is as follows:---- Transponder key

Transponder keys may also be called "chip keys". Transponder keys are automotive ignition keys with signal-emitting circuits built inside. When the key is turned in the ignition cylinder, the car's computer transmits a radio signal to the transponder circuit. The circuit has no battery; it is energized by the radio signal itself. The circuit typically has a computer chip that is programmed to respond by sending a coded signal back to the car's computer. If the circuit does not respond or if the code is incorrect, the engine will not start. Many cars immobilize if the wrong key is used by intruders. Chip Keys successfully protect cars from theft in two ways: forcing the ignition cylinder won't start the car, and the keys are difficult to duplicate. This is why chip keys are popular in modern cars and help decrease car theft. Many people who have transponder keys are not aware of the fact because the circuit is hidden inside the plastic head of the key. THIS IS JUST FOR ADDITIONAL KNOWLEDGE ((((((On the other hand, General Motors produced what are known as VATS keys (Vehicle Anti-Theft System) during the 1990s, which are often erroneously believed to be transponders but actually use a simple resistor, which is visible in the blade of the key. If the value of the resistor is wrong, or the key is a normal key without a resistor, the circuit of the car's electrical system will not allow the engine to be started.)))))))))))))).

------------

This means that the programming of the Transponder Key has been corrupted or the Programming data of the Key in ECU ( Electric Control Unit ) has been lost or not responding. You now have to get a new Transponder Key. You can get it on E-bay for $30. After you receive it, reprogram the car to the New Transponder Key to the ECU By the lock smith or from the dealer.

---------------

I know this may sound weird, but people used to come to our Auto Repair Shop with the same issues, 98% of the time the cells in the battery were so bad that the vehicle just didn't have enough power to run the vehicles computer, causing everything to flat out just go wacko. I would first have the battery, and the charging system checked. Hope this solves your problems. Replacing the battery is a inexpensive fix, considering the average battery should last 3 to 5 years.

How to program holden cruze key


Hi Jibo Take your car to a Holden Dealer it needs to be programed via computer access. This is one job I have seen go belly up on numerous occasions. My advise purchase key from Holden program through Holden In one hit you will need to supply two keys for programing. I have known in the past for a customer to purchase key elsewhere and give it to Holden and programing has failed the head aches caused to customer it really isn't worth it.Good luck.

How do I adjust hand brake on 2010 Holden Cruze after replacing pads


you don't, hand brake is not adjustable. If hand brake does not hold something else is at fault. Possible streched cable however it would not be unusual for the handbrake to be high but it should hold vehicle on a hill.
