I have a 18 plate Vitara with key fob. I tried to open locks with emergency key but nothing happened. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

Not quite sure what an "emergency key"is?
We have had our vitara from new and it came with 2 keys and both open the doors via remote and both open the doors inserting the key in drivers door lock.The alarm works ok so confused as to what key is being talked about!

If you have push button ignition then you rarely use a key.
However theres an emergency key inside the fob.

Ah! Thank you :-)
I have the old vitara and thought I was missing out on something but now I realise I just have an older version with the old key that does not even fold in half!

Hmm that's not right! It seems like you have the wrong key if it won't turn the lock then I bet the dealer has mixed up the keys.
You should have two keys do both not work?

i would speak to where you purchased the motor from,and explain the full situation but do not let lem fob you off because if you need that key in an emergency then your stuffed,they sold you the car so get them to sort it asap,they may even send it to a suzuki dealer to look at so be prepared to maybe take it somewhere else but only on vauxhalls authority and get it in writing to protect your consumer rights:!:

You may get a discount off the cost if you mention you are a key worker ?
The seller may use..... Lock down........ as an excuse to delay ?

Enough already.... Laughing

Well, got key issue fixed today, apparently someone ( last owner? ) had been in at it and not connected some link rod properly, sorted now. But what is the purpose of it, as when you open car with it alarm goes off. Shocked

Yes, hold the key close to the push button.
