Holden vx commodore immobiliser
to fix the key you need a screw driver to pry the to halves of the key casing apart (make sure you have a spare set) taking care not to damage the internal electronic component board, because this electronic circuit board (cct bd) is powered by a 3 volt battery (which is also used to run the bios on computers) can be purchased for about 3 dollars from **** smiths, you need a small pair of side cutters to cut the metal tag connections between the battery and the cct bd taking care to note which is the positive and negative tracks on the cct bd, then using a soldering iron desolder the metal tag connections from the cct bd take care not to damage the copper tracks on the cct bd, try to use the proper desoldering technique (the copper gauze or a suction gun) to remove excess solder from the metal tags because they need to be removed, when the tags are removed from the cct bd there is a small hole on each copper track for the positive and negative reconnections to the newly purchased battery, use light audio speaker wire, black for negative and red for positive, presolder the wire ends first then cut the bear ends down and solder to the tracks taking care not to cross tracks with the solder, then shorten the both positive and negative lengths so the battery and the wires will fit back into the casing of the key and resolder the wire connections to the battery, before closing the key casing test the key to see if the immobiliser is operating then relocate the ring seal and close the two casing together with tape or reglue with arildite glue. if your soldering technique is not up to scratch practice your technique until you feel confident and this should save you about $100
