    Mine used to do the same so I would remove the key, reinsert it and car would start. Eventually I replaced the remote battery and no more no starties.

    Fuel cap latching mechanism trouble

    I have noticed the lever on the floor has a tendency to stay up, sometimes even gets caught on the mat, so every time I pull the fuel flap lever I then push it back down again but I agree they are poor design and you cannot afford to be rough with them.

    SRS Air Bag Fault VY

    If you unplugged seats with the battery still connected then that will cause the srs to show, but the seats are not the same even though the plug may look the same. eg Some VZ seats have air bags whereas VY don't have to my knowledge.

    VZ Random Start

    Check drivetrain could be dodgy oil pressure switch which my son fitted to the wife's car last week to get rid of a similar dash problem, however, and I have mentioned this a few times before, how old is the remote, and even better still replace the battery in the remote as I have done. Not hard...

    Locked diff

    Of course you can. Commonly referred to in the 60's and 70's as a CIG locker. Probably called today a BOC locker considering BOC bought out CIG/changed name from CIG.

    VZ Seats into a VY

    Here are a few to read up on. https://forums.justcommodores.com.au/threadloom/search?keywords=vz+seats+into+vy&tab=0 Main thing I would caution is some VZ's have air bags in the seats so you will need to remove them or they may go off at a very unoppurtune moment.

    Shocks for a VZ Wagon (Country Pack)

    I had pedders fit new rears to my vz wagon 5 years ago and they have now done 25,000 k's, and the valves in them have been knocking for the last 15,000 k's so I am not a pedders lover.

    Vz Shaking Problem

    I understand what you are going through, nothing worse than vibrations, been there, done that, but you have not answered my questions. If you were up here, I am retired and happy for you to use my wheels and I have trolly jack compressor rattle gun stands etc etc but you have to do the work...

    Vz Shaking Problem

    Is it harmonic (comes and goes) or continual. ? If possible borrow a set of no vibratey wheels off another car to try to rule out wheels. And check play in wheel bearings at the same time. And don't think balancing wheels will rule out wheel problems. I had the wheels on my wife's car balanced...

    Water patch on floor

    Had a vp years ago had water on the floor behind drivers seat. I found it was getting in through the door rubber. If you think it is coming up through the floor when driving then maybe a rubber plug has been left out when the car was built. Look under.

    2006 vz front end noise ?

    And sadly it is not just the motor game overcharging, it is everywhere. Mate called me he had just had a quote to install new hot water system in his home at $2800 plus another $2000 to remove the old solar hot water. I told him $1500 to $1800 for the new water heater and he can hop on the roof...

    When putting the case back together, 3 small spots of super glue are good to hold it together but not so much that you cannot pull it apart again, as I did today to take the pic.

    Vz remote key

    Ah, but they can be opened, AND, you can fit a cheap slip in battery after chopping the tabs off the existing battery. I used a very small screw driver and hammer to lever/chop off the tabs then simply slipped a new battery between the tabs and closed the case. The battery I used was from a...

    Intermittent o2 sensor Fault

    No, bit far from the Sunny Coast. Bank 1 should be passenger side of engine and sensor 1 should be closest to engine.
