Asked by Oct 19, 2013 at 03:44 AM about the 2002 Vauxhall Vectra

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Showing a light in the dashboard that looks like a paddlock

1 Answer


Is the Security light on too? "If your engine won't start, and the security light is flashing, wait ten minutes. The flashing light should go off or illuminate without flashing. When it does, turn the ignition off, wait twenty seconds, and then try to start the engine. Remember that this is only a temporary fix; the fault will happen again. The most common repair is to replace the ignition lock cylinder or Passlock sensor and perform a relearn procedure."
