Hi Derek,

Can you get a scan done on the vehicle with TECH2 please?

It will have a code relating to the HSV security system.

You say refuses to fire up, so do you mean no crank, or crank no fire?

How many working keys do you have?

I have 2 keys, I'm a long way away from anyone with a diagnostic computer...

Hi Derek,

Unfortunately this is the first thing you need to do, I do it for a living, I have a TECH2 in my hand most days.

Maybe a mobile diagnostic tech can come to your house?

Is all of the car including PCM, BCM original factory parts?

Yeah thanks Gary, but at $242 per hour for a call out puts it out of my reach at the moment...thanks again

Hi Derek,

Your best bet is to have it towed to a Holden dealer, preferably with a HSV tech.

Whereabouts are you?

I'm in Brisbane.
