Whether you’re in need of a brand new set of Citroen keys, or you’re looking for a duplication service in order to be prepared for the future, we can provide you with an extensive range of services to suit your needs.

  • Modern Citroen keys are comprised of three different components: a metal blade, a transponder chip and the internal circuit board.
  • Transponder chips ensure car thefts are minimised, but this also makes replacing the keys even more complex. Your Citroen dealership may require up to 10 working days to replace the key. We can replace it on the spot.

HOW DO CITROEN KEYS WORK?

Very few motorists are aware that if their car was manufactured after 1995, then it will have a transponder chip embedded in the chip. When the car key is inserted into the ignition lock, the immobiliser nit of the car checks to see whether it can recognise the chip. If the chip is correctly programmed to the car, then the car will start. If however, it is not, then you will not be able to switch the car on. This technology is usually impossible to override and has the clear advantage of making it almost impossible for car thieves to steal cars with the crude expedient of copying keys. All Citroen models are equipped with a coded engine immobiliser, as long as they were manufactured after 1995. However, there are four different types of immobiliser systems that perform an assortment of functions.

STANDARD IMMOBILISER

This happened immediately after the keypad system became obsolete, and compromises of the immobiliser unit and transponder aerial being able to pick up the transponder signal code.

PASSENGER COMPARTMENT PROTECTION CONTROL UNIT (CPH)

This is the next generation of immobiliser and alarm systems and commands a number of additional constituents to help further the vehicle protection system with the likes of ultrasonic sensors and central door locking included.

BODY SYSTEMS INTERFACE (BSI)

This system principally integrates the alarm and immobiliser into the body control unit. The BCU commands each and every body unit including lights, horn, windows, doors, locks, indicators, wiper boot and more.

CONTROLLER AREA NETWORK (CAN)

This is one of the latest styles of immobiliser system and still employs the Body System Interface. It communicates through the control area network instead of the traditional serial communications interface.
