Hi
I have read with interest the problem with only having one key to my Omega V6 Estate 2001 model, with alarm.
I have made a temporary repair to the 2 button key fob and as a substitute to soldering ( I have shaky hands) , I used super glue to attach the broken battery contacts to the mother board. It works but intermittent button operation due to possibly inferior battery contacts.
Thanks for the advice on locking the car manually , via the rear door as opposed to using the key fob.
Any suggestions to an Omega Owners forum member that I can possibly reward with business to either match the original key and fob or 2 new keys and fob for the Vehicle.
I live in Croydon area London.
Kindest regards
Squire 1.

Really you'd be better off starting your own thread.
I guess being an estate yours is two button as opposed to the later saloons some of which had a three button, for the keyless boot. The key, immobiliser chip and the CL remote plug together into one unit.

Martin Imber, also a member on here,  offers a repair service for these keys. £12 to fix the battery holder. Or £17 to do the buttons and shell as well. Order through his website here.

However expect to be without the key for a few days. Also your superglue might be an issue, ask him.

Replacement remote circuits are readily available as are the shells and the buttons and blank ID40 chips. The battery holder is not so easy. However you would need access to a Tech-2 to program the new remote to the car. And also for the immobiliser chip if you replace that.

So repair/refurb of your existing key is very good value. Way less than the cost of a new key and programming by an auto-locksmith, assuming they are competent, which is where this topic started.

Estate fibs are 2-a-penny, and I think IanSoutham has a tech2 and is your neck of the woods...   ...ish

There recently were a guy here in Sweden who inherited a 2002 Omega Estate Sport 3.2L!! It didn't have any keys but were not locked.

He was able to get a new pair of keys from the GM/Opel dealer, it did cost a bit but it then included reprogramming of the CPU.

May be worth checking out.

Jumping in on this post as my recent purchase is a facelift 02 model with no boot lock  :D

The fob does not work I have emailed Martin Nimber so will hopefully get some luck with that.

I opened it and the battery holder is just floating around inside like a rat in a barrel.

The switch in the car does not work so to open the boot I have to climb through to pull the handle inside the boot not very easy for an arthritic 60 year old and will be fun if i get stuck in Tescos car parl  :D I am sure it will cause a few laughs.
Is the interior switch near the radio linked to the key fob somehow? might try to fix this.

You know that you press & hold the switch?  :-\

Maybe I did not hold it long enough but I suspect the battery holder inside the key housing should be connected to the circuit board? it is just loose inside.

I think it's just a myth  ;D
