Remote Locking
#1
I picked up my 2005 2.0Hdi Desire at the weekend but was only given one key - this key is the non-remote type.

So following on from the "Trim Level" thread - can anyone tell me if the Desire trim came with remote central locking as standard?

If not, can it be retro-fitted?

You will have remote locking. I found this spec sheet which shows what you should have

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

Thanks Chris,

So should it just be a trip to my local Citroen dealer to get a remote key sorted out?

I imagine they will charge me handsomely for the priviledge!

I have just asked my local dealer about the key as I had to call them anyway.

If you still have the code card (should be in the handbook folder) then £73.90 for the key plus £70.00 for coding (both inc. VAT). If you don't have the code card then add another £24.12 for a replacement code.

Is this the transponder code that is found on the code card?

I guess so. I have got a card with mine but admit that I thought it was for the stereo.

£168!!! :brickwall:

No, I didn't see a code card in the folder so wonder if the £168 cost put off the previous owner from replacing the key.

I'll have to look for a cheaper alternative :thumbsup:

Let us know if you find one, they must exist?!

Our key gave up the ghost some time ago and I've not bothered to see about replacing it as I thought it'd be expensive to replace (having had to replace one for a previous car a few years ago).

There are repair kits on eBay which might be worth a go if you have still got the key?
