hi all,

 

we've just put a deposit down on a 2009 xsara picasso, the only issue is there is only one key which is the non remote spare. i was wondering if i were to buy a fob with the circuit board would it be easy to program the remote to work with the car?

 

or would this require lexia?

 

 

thanks in advance

It will require Lexia, although Timpsons do offer the ability to cut and program keys for all cars so worth asking them. Early Citroen cars had a credit card sized card with a code number on it. This was to allow you to get keys cut and programmed. They stopped issuing them though as many went missing. The dealers will tell you the code based on VIN number but some will expect to supply the key too

thanks for the reply,

 

i suppose it will be a dealer job then, i have contacted a mobile car key service so i will wait to hear back from them.

Sorry I don't know cost. You could talk to dealer and get a quite. Also look on eBay for blank key with fob. Try Timpsons too.

we will, we're going to make sure the car is okay and reliable first before spending money on it.
