WARNING DO THIS AT OWN RISK

Step 1
Open drivers window & prop up bonnet, close all doors and windows except drivers window & bonnet.

Step2
Put key in ignition (through drivers open window) and start the car.

Step 3
Turn off car and remove key (through drivers open window) DO NOT OPEN ANY OTHER DOORS OR WINDOWS

Step 4
Wait until mileage display goes out. Then wait another 3 minutes

Step 5
Disconnect the Positive (+) on the battery terminal. BONNET SHOULD BE OPEN AND PROPPED UP BY NOW. IF NOT RESTART PROCEDURE

Step 6
Wait 5 minutes. After the time has elapsed, Reconnect the battery LEAVING THE BONNET OPEN

Step 7
Wait 10 seconds after battery reconnection, then turn on and off your SIDELIGHTS Through the drivers open window. DO NOT OPEN ANY WINDOWS OR DOORS

Step 8
Put key in igniton, start car and hold the lock button on the key/fob for 20seconds. THROUGH OPEN WINDOW

Step 9
turn off the car, remove the key. The remote alarm and central locking will work from the keyfob.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You are now finished!!!

For the second fob, start fromStep8 . All the fobs must be reprogrammed in under 10minutes of battery reconnection.

MAKE SURE ALL FOBS HAVE A WORKING BATTERY BEFORE DOING THIS. FOLLOW THE STEPS CAREFULLY TO AVOID CORRUPTION OF THE SOFTWARE WITHIN THE BSI. CORRUPTION OF THE BSI CAN CAUSE SYSTEMS WITHIN THE CAR TO MALFUNCTION OR NOT WORK PROPERLY.

re-synch

I have a 406 R98 which i'm told is a mark one , i have also been told today by the main agent that the procedure listed will only work for mark 2's,he claimed that the mark one had the key and receiver are twined and i need to replace both, slightly annoying as i have just got a replacement fob and although i have done a procedure very close to the one listed sure enough nothing happened (re; remote locking won't work, car starts no problem ).I will try your method but i don't hold out much hope.Is the main agent right or was he really trying to get a sale ?HELP !! Thanks

Hi, has this method been tested to work with a Citroen Dispatch? I am trying to program another RCL key fob I bought off ebay. The key obviously does not fit the ignition, I am just trying to program it to use the RCL function (not to start the engine). Is this possible? I have an original (working) key fob.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers for the reply. Sounds like it could cost more than I initially hoped. When you say the key had to fit in the ignition, do you mean the key has to be able to turn in ignition on? Or just be able to 'fit' in the ignition?

so can you get a blank key and fob case and transfer the circuit board across or would you still have to do it this way as both my keyfobs where taped up and i would guess the remote batterys have been flat for a long time as neither remote works ?

...snip...

I was following the steps here and accidentally had the ignition off when I pressed the lock button. So the car locked up (closing the drivers window and nearly taking my arm off).

So the keys are now locked in, the bonnet is still up. Is there any way I can get in?

(I've no other keys, the wife has lost the main key which I why I was trying to program the spare - it's never worked).

Edit: I now see why Betty said to use at own risk

If all else fails and you don't want to risk damaging anything...Get key blade code, have new blade cut and use new blade with mole grips in drivers door lock. Not a quick fix but no damage!!!!

I forgot to check for replies in the drama. Got a mate who's an RAC man to come out and do the coathanger trick. Luckily it wasn't deadlocked.

Also luckily the primary keys were found so technically all worked out well.

Only issue is the car. Have advised the missus to trade up for something like a 1980's Lada. It'll be more reliable.

Outstanding. Went to local Peugeot dealer in Milton Keynes (Perry's) and they were unable to help. In desperation I used this technique and it worked a treat :) .. Much to the amusement (then amazement) of my skeptical family.

Am so grateful I stumbled onto this excellent site/forum.
