Hello

Recently i've bought a key with electronics inside, and a virgin imobiliser, Because it has arrived on saturday and was so impatient that i wanted to make the key work, i've removed my blade from my original key, and tried to reprogram both of the key's using Diagbox, i started by entering code from the card, and after reprograming both key's, there was no error about immobiliser on the dash. After following the re-sync procedure told by diagbox, i re-programed my original key, and (as always) it is still unlocking the car using remote, but the cheap Chinese key is Actually just sending the signal but not unlocking the car ( Non can bus sidelight, so i can see, that they bright, bsi also makes a relay sound) But the car does not unlock, i have i trying to put the key in the ignition and rotate it to ACC Position and hold lock key for 15 seconds, but it didn't help, a have also tried with opening the bonnet and removing + terminal from the battery, that didn't work either.
Any idea how to sync it so that i can unlock the car using the bought Chinese key ?

Thanks! :)

When you turn ignition on before you press abs hold turn it on all the way to the position before you start it then press and hold lock button

If that don't work then the cheap eBay key don't work and that is the exact reason I don't buy them on ebay

I know that it's my fault for buying a cheap chinesee key, today i went to local car key's guy, and he cut the key to suit my car, he also told me that 407 doesn't have a groove in the key, and that that's the reason most likely because the remote is not working (mine had it ) had to replace the blade, not same frenquency or something like that, and that most likely the key is for some other car for example (207,308).

but, he also told me that there is a way, to copy the code from one key to other, so that the board iside the my key is the same in one that i have bought from aliexpress, but that can't be done using PP2000, it requires some other tool, that can scan my chip inside my key, and make the same code on the other chip in chinnese key.

Thanks for your advice for syncing but it is not working.. :(

If anyone on the forum knows how to fix this, it would be really helpful for me and all other people who are actually trying to program a cheap key.

Thanks.

As trustme says - if the key is the wrong one then it will always be the wrong one. Your locksmith guy was correct in saying that there are machines that can clone a key but the clone has the pre-requisite of having to be the correct key type.

Well for now i can unlock the car mechanically, and start it, since the key is programed in bsi, but no remote.. Well, i guess i will just have to live with that for some time, in our local shop new key is about 120 euros and they guaranty that remote is going to work, and everything is going to be fine. :)

Anyway, my idea was to get a spare key, in case something happens to this one since i got only one when i bought the car...

So it is now even possible to clone the key ? :confused:
Guy that i have bought the key from, told me that he could refund me, but it's not that big deal, i mean i still get the key to start the car if nothing else. :D

Thanks for your time to reply guys! :thumb:

i may be able to supply a remote for cheaper but i need your vin number to check

you can clone a key yes (meaning the transponder part that starts the car) but you can not clone a Peugeot remote not any way that i know of anyway

Thats all you can do with aliexpress keys. Start stop the car. They are originally for 307 and don't fit 407s lock/unlock pattern fine. I haven't found a cheap chinese key that works with a 407 for locking/unlocking.
