    I was told by Holden i could get a key code from them for my VR if i buy a blank off them. I imagine a fob would be much the same.

    You can get a replacement chip that will allow your car to start and run without a working keyhead/fob.

    Or it may work out cheaper to replace the BCM and matching keyhead from a wreck. Can usually be purchased on Gumtree for under $50. Just need to make sure you get one from a VR as the VS will not work.
