    Default Peugeot 206 replacement key

    Hi,

    I bought a 206 a couple of years ago second hand with only one key. I'm getting it ready to sell but I've managed to break the key. It can still be used manually but not remotely. I've heard replacement keys are expensive through Peugeot, but is there anywhere else I could get one? I'm in Brisbane.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    I have just bought a 206 GTi with only one key which is slightly annoying as this car will be used by both myself and my girlfriend.

    We asked our local Mr. Minit who advised that because the keys are coded they are quite expensive to replace. He quoted $130. I am not sure if this includes remote locking though as currently the key we are using doesn't work remotely.

    I would ask around and see if there is a common pattern to the pricing.

    The dealers have us by the short and curlies with these immobiliser keys. Blank cases are cheap (eg French Connection). Cutting is cheap at a range of local locksmiths. The trap is the immobiliser chip inside. Fleabay dealers can supply complete units which may or may not need cutting. You will then need the PSA software to code the chip to the car, which can be done for $$$ at a dealer or by someone here who may be able to help.

    Do a Google search on the forum, as it comes up regularly.

    Some Mr Minut franchises can cut the key and duplicate the immobilizer chip. I paid about $100 a few years ago to duplicate a Honda key + chip.

    So I would suggest the price you were quoted is key and chip. The chip can be duplicated by reading the data off your existing, working key and then writing to another chip.The chip is enclosed within the top section of the duplicated mechanical key.

    I'd suggest Mr Minit represents value - but check and get a price from a D(st)ealer (make sure it includes the key, chip plus reprogramming the car to accept the new key)

    The price will be for the key and chip only imo.

    ^ Agreed 100%. I got a spare for my 306 just as a backup and it was a smidge under $100 for the key to be provided, cut and the immobilizer code copied across. Getting a key that does the central locking as well is what costs the big bucks. Peugeot quoted me somewhere around $300-400.

    It seems as if all you need is something like: Carprog Full V6 8 With Software'S Activated AND 21 Items Adapters Tool | eBay

    or Original X 100 X100 Plus Auto Programmer English Version Cheap Price | eBay

    Not sure which but the second one looks like it will work. So judging by the price, after the 3rd/4th customer, they've paid for the price of the tool

    You can pair multiple remote locking fobs with each car (if they have the removable transponder), buy a second hand one of teh 'bay and put the coded insert and cut blade into it. If the cut blade isnt compatible with the fob you can always take the blade and coded insert out of it and just have a dangly remote opener along with the key.

    good clarification addo

    You CANNOT use (as in, reassign) mismatched secondhand transmitters ("fobs") on may newer PSA product. Do not believe the internet - this misinformation is recycled endlessly.

    The ability to re-assign chipped keys went with the change to transmitter boards that incorporated the transponder chip.

    As the OP's key still opens and de-immobilises, it may be just a surface mount contact switch to replace.

    Just bought a key from ebay for $49 from a local locksmith, reprogramming is done with PP2000 and pay 15 odd to have it cut, cheap and simple.

    Hi everyone,

    Thanks for your replies, I just want to clarify something (sorry I'm not techno savvy). When I said that I broke the key, I broke the bit inside the black fob. There's a green bit (chip?) with a big silver bit and two small silver bits and the two small silver bits have broken off the green bit (are you following? ) So when you talk about getting chips duplicated/coded I'm assuming I can't do this as the chip is broken (I think?) Any ideas? Thanks L

    You've broken off the microswitches by sounds of it. Easy fix for someone who can solder repair SMDs.

    No mean to Roodog: my spare 206 key looks like this - where is the chip on that? It feels like solid PC/ABS Is it inside that plastic?moulding?

    Hi,

    I have the key with a broken chip. I'm not sure what you mean by the code so I guess I don't have it. I went to a Mr Minit who said he could only do a key that worked manually and I'd have to go back to Peugeot for a remote locking key.

    Would you be able to do a replacement remote key for me and if so, what sort of price would I be looking at?

    Thanks
