    Default 405 Keys

    Have lost a key......

    Are the remote locking/unlocking codes (when using the button on the key) tied in with certain key profiles???

    Hi

    The remote unlocking code for a 405 isn't tied to the metal key part.

    You can find the remote unlocking code number for your car on a yellow sticker that is attached to the remote receiver unit inside the roof consul or inside the keyfob on a white sticker.

    You also say you have lost a key, Please note that the lost key CANNOT be erased from the 405s security system & will still unlock your car if someone finds it.

    Thanks LeePower..

    So you cant alter dip switches or replace a chip to change the remote code in the car to match a new remote key?

    Hi

    I think it can be done but its a right pain to do, But dont quote me on that.

    It would be much easier to get a replacement set of 2 x remote fobs & matching receiver from a scrapped 405, Take you less then 10 minutes to swop.

    Or if you want a more secure system get an alarm with RF keyfobs installed.

    Here we only get one remote and one ordinary key... If we got 2 remotes it would be no problem as the second key I only for emergencies and could just get that key cut at any hardware shop.
    But when you only get one remote..... Down to cost again .

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    hi,

    got my remote key replaced when i bought my car, as the button was missing. without the metal its about $145 from memory from peugeot dealer. you will need the code & proof of ownership to order.

    so its not cheap. might be worth a closer look at those electronics from Alan S. or, just stick the key in the door! however i found it very low down and i have to hunch over to get the key in. very annoying, especially when using the remote is so much more fun

    I know the guy who has the info I posted the link to and he has done a few over in the UK with an average cost of about $5 from some place like Dick Smith/Tandy Electronics.
    A few over there have tried what he recommends and reckon it's dead easy and works 100%

    Yes, this works very well but some of the components are a bit hard to get locally. Most of the info is correct but the later 405 fob uses a chip where the coding is integral rather than by drillings in the PCB- this makes things a bit confusing but isn't as bad as working out the connections from the number code.
