Lost Citroen keys replaced for less
We replace broken, stolen or lost Citroen car keys in London areas for less than the main dealers. If you have have lost your only Citroen key and choose to have them replaced by a Citroen dealer you will be in for a shock. The dealers will ask you to come in and see them with you V5 and ID to order the key. Thats right it has to be ordered – and it will normally take between two and five days to arrive. When the replacement Citron key arrives you will then be asked to take your car into their workshop to have the key programmed. How do you do that when you have no keys? It will cost an extra fee to have your Citroen recovered on a truck.
Sounds like a lot of hassle! The good news is we are in business because there is clearly a need for our service. Keep reading to find out just how we replace lost Citroen keys.
How our Citroen key programming service works
Our solution is much simpler. Call us on 0800 1583798 for a quick chat about your lost Citroen key problem. Don’t worry too much about preparing details, we will ask all the questions. If you have lost your Citroen keys we will ask you about your car and your old key and then provide you with a cost for coming out and making a replacement key for your Citroen. If you are happy with the quotation we will arrange a convenient time to meet at your car and make the replacement key. We can provide basic keys to keep costs low or full remote locking keys that operate the central locking from a button. We carry new un-cut Citroen remote keys in our stock and will cut the blade in our mobile work-van while you wait. We will then code the key to your Citroens immobiliser system using a special diagnostic coding machine. Again, this is all done while you wait.
Citroen car key types
There are a few different types of keys used with Citroen cars but there are two main blade profile types and these are listed below.
This is a Citroen remote locking fob key with a flip style blade on a HU83 profiel blade
This is a non remote key with a SX9 blade profile, sometimes called a cruciform because of its shape
We can supply both of these style of key and provide a service for cutting and programming of the transponder chip.
A walk through of a Citroen car key replacement
To cut a Citroen key blade we need a special key number that gives us the information on how the key needs to be cut to operate your locks. We can obtain this key number on your behalf from a Citroen dealer. This makes cutting the key quick and straight forward. If for some reason their is no code on file for your Citroen key we can remove a door lock and take it apart to see how the replacement Citroen key blade needs to be cut. Once the key is cut and turning the locks it will need to be coded into the car. Each Citroen key will have a transponder chip concealed inside the plastic head. The chip needs paring with the Citroen immobiliser to make the car start. We plug a machine into the Citroen OBD port and program the new key to start the car. If the key has remote locking we will then program the fob to open and lock the doors.
If you have a broken Citroen car key we can sometimes repair it or worst case cut and code a complete replacement for your Citroen key. Stolen, broken or lost Citroen keys are not a problem if you call The Auto Locksmith.
