ABOUT CITROEN KEYS & FOBS

No matter which model Citroen you drive, if you need anything from a simple key duplication to a whole new set of programmed keys, you’ll find it – and more - right here.

  • Modern Citroen keys comprise three components: a metal key blade, a transponder ship and an internal circuit board
  • Transponder chips keep car theft numbers down, but they also make key replacements complicated if you go to a Citroen dealership. Dealerships can take up to ten working days to have a replacement key ready for you, while we can replace a Citroen key right there and then.
  • That fast Citroen key replacement doesn’t depend on your location, either – as long as you’re somewhere in London and the Home Counties we can be with you within an hour of your call to us.
  • We’re all about providing a high-quality service at much lower than dealership prices.
  • No matter what the problem is, our Citroen key replacement service will get you back on the road again quicky, conveniently and economically.

WHAT CITROEN KEY SERVICES DO WE PROVIDE?

LOST OR BROKEN CITROEN KEY REPLACEMENT

Lost your car keys? Broken them? Dreading the expense and inconvenience of having your car towed to a dealership? No need to worry – we can create a new set of keys in minutes, without the need for a tow or the standard dealership ten-day wait.

CITROEN KEY DUPLICATION

Only got the one key when you bought your Citroen? Now would be the best time to have it cloned to create a spare key in case anything happened to it. Just call us and book an appointment with one of our mobile Citroen key replacement specialists.

CITROEN KEY PROGRAMMING

It can happen that your remote fob or the transponder chip in your Citre key can get out of synch with your vehicle, and will need special diagnostic equipment to re-synchronise it once again. A dealership may well charge you for a whole new set of keys, while our mobile technician will use the equipment in his van to reprogram the key right away – and it won’t cost nearly as much as that new set of keys from the dealer.

CITROEN CAR OPENING

Locked yourself out of your car because you’ve locked your keys in there? Just give us a call and one of our specialist technicians will be there within an hour to open up your Citroen without making a mark or leaving a trace of what he’s done.

CAR KEY REPAIR

A damaged car key is not a reliable car key, and there’s every chance that it will choose the least convenient moment to let you down. That said, it’s a simple matter for us to repair it – whether it’s visibly broken on the outside or there’s a mysterious rattle coming from the inside. Either way, when we hand that repaired key over to you, it’ll be as good as the day you first got it – if not better!

CAR LOCK / IGNITION BARREL REPAIR

It can happen that a key blade can snap off while it’s in the car’s door lock and in the process damage it. The same could also happen when the blade is in the ignition barrel. If that happens to you, call us and our technician will remove the broken blade and repair any damage it may have caused – for far less than what a garage or a dealership would charge.

HOW CITROEN KEYS WORK

Not many motorists know that before 1995 car manufacturers didn’t provide keys with transponder chips to reduce the risk of car theft. They work when the vehicle’s immobiliser unit checks the chip when the key is in the ignition. If the chip is recognised because it’s been properly programmed then the car will start. But if the immobiliser unit doesn’t recognise the chip in the key there’s no way the car will switch on. So it’s practically impossible for a thief to steal a vehicle using a key with a matching blade. Citroen vehicles from 1995 onwards are equipped with a coded engine immobiliser, of which there are four different kinds:

STANDARD IMMOBILISER

This is the basic system, where the immobiliser unit antenna picks up the correct transponder signal code when the key is within range.

PASSENGER COMPARTMENT PROTECTION CONTROL UNIT (CPH)

This is the next step up from the standard immobiliser and alarm system, now including central door locking and ultrasonic sensors.

BODY SYSTEMS INTERFACE (BSI)

The Body Control Unit (BCU) comprises the alarm and immobiliser, with control over the vehicle’s functions such as lights, horn, windows, doors, locks, indicators, wipers, boot and more.

CONTROLLER AREA NETWORK (CAN)

This is a more modern immobiliser system which still depends on the BSI, but instead of communicating through a serial interface it does so through the CAN.

CAR KEYS SOLUTIONS – SO CONVENIENT!

No need to worry about getting your car to a garage or a dealership when you need a new key – our technicians can come right to you, wherever you are in London and the Home Counties, and cut you a new Citroen key right there and then. They can also safely get into your locked vehicle if your keys are in there, and safely remove a broken key blade from your door or ignition barrel. If you purchased your Citroen second-hand with only one key, we really do recommend you have that key duplicated – just in case. But if you need a new key in a hurry, all you have to do is call us.
