I got a opel vectra cdx model 2000/01 and changed the battery of the car key, then when I start the car it won't start anymore everything is dead, is it the immobilizer? how to fix it?

Welcome to Just Answer, An immobiliser fault on the Vectra would let the engine spin over with the key but it would not fire..

This sounds more like the main vehicle battery has gone flat, try charging it or starting it with some jump leads, let me know how you get on.

Best regards, Vauxdoc.
