Having been off the road since March, someone in my household has misplaced BOTH keys for their Pug 206. I'm hoping that, based on the VIN / registration documents, Peugeot can make them a new key. Does anyone know how much they can expect to be charged for this, please?

I suspect it will be cheaper to get a key blade and buy a blank fob myself: I know that I can buy a new fob, and get it programmed by another user on the forum who lives nearby; I've done that bit before.

Question: Can Peugeot make me a new key blade based on the VIN / registration of the car? Will they do so, or try to stick me for a complete fob?

Subsequent question: With a new key blade only, will the owner be able to drive the vehicle to my contact's house to get his fob programmed, or does he require a completely operational fob in order to immobilise / drive the car?

Thanks again, Peugeot Owners!

Key blade will only operate the mechanical locks.

Without a correctly coded transponder immobiliser chip the engine won't start.

I first suggest the person looks again for the misplaced keys.

An automotive locksmith will be able to create you a new immobiliser fob and blade even without a key (as long as they can get in the car :) but expect a bill of £150 or more.
A dealer can also do this but charge even more!

That's the cheapest option.
Any new key would have to be coded into the car for the immobiliser to work, requires specialist software. A dealer can do this, but of course they would need the car to be taken to them.

Happy enough that I can code the fob to the car, but if chap with the kit has to come to me, it may cost me more than just a case of beer! Thanks again.
