Car keys and Peugeot remote keys

We are specialists in supplying and cutting keys and can assist with virtually any model past or present. We also supply replacement Peugeot remote keys and can often reprogramme existing units in the case of a fault. These services can be quickly carried out to duplicate any remotes and cut any keys from existing patterns. However, we can also now offer a 'cut to code' service for keys for many later model vehicles. As a result, lost car keys or broken car keys need no longer be a major problem. Please visit our main page about car keys and vehicle remotes, or contact us and we will be delighted to assist.

Peugeot vehicle

If one of your Peugeot remote keys has stopped working, it may sometimes be possible for you to re-synchronise it without needing our assistance. This may be the case if the battery has been replaced or buttons have been pressed a number of times when out of range of the vehicle. We obviously cannot guarantee this process will always work, but the procedures for various Peugeot models are shown below. Please note, re-synchronisation is usually only possible where a remote has previously worked with a specific car and in most cases will not work otherwise. For a number of vehicles, remotes and remote keys feature a 'one-time code', which means that a remote coded initially to work with a specific vehicle cannot be re-coded to work with a different car. Because of this, we strongly advise against buying remotes from any unknown source or used remotes. If the procedures below are not successful, please call us. We will be able to help you and if you are reasonably local, we can come out to you and assist.

PEUGEOT 306 remote key programming
There were three main variants of the Peugeot 306.
1993, 'Phase One'. This has a louvred radiator grille. The remote key is an infra-red model with an LED on the the fob. When fitted, the immobiliser has a keypad inside the vehicle.
Late 1997, 'Phase Two'. This variant has a one-piece radiator grill and the lower part of the bumpers are painted body colour. The remote is an infra-red type with an LED on the fob. This is very much like the Phase One model, but the immobiliser circuitry is included in the remote key.
1999, 'Phase Three'. The bumpers are painted all in body colour. The remote is a radio-frequency device without an LED.

Peugeot key types

There are various keys and remote keys available for different Peugeot models. Prior to 1995, all keys were 'standard' types, with no inbuilt security devices. After that date, various keys and remotes were produced, but all have electronic security incorporated. The basic types have a security chip. This does not use a battery, but is recognised by the vehicle's security system and allows the car to be started. Other types with locking/unlocking buttons use a small battery and synchronise with the car's electronics.

Nearly all Peugeot remote keys are programmed to a specific vehicle and require a PIN code for initial activation. This is a 'once only' code, which means that once programmed, a remote will never be able to be used with a different vehicle. If you have this code (it is normally on a small card together with the other vehicle documents) we can easily provide replacement remotes. Even if not, we can obtain the code for you.
