Lost key :(
#1
Sad 
This Bingo is really being particularly truculent at the moment and to punish me just a bit more for buying new parts to repair it, it's now decided to hide it's keys from me...

I always leave the keys for all the cars and vans in the top drawer but this time it's dematerialised, probably only to reappear once I've shelled a load of cash out for a new key....

Anyway, where do I start?  Does anyone know where I can get a replacement key from in the NW/Bolton area?  It's a 2 button chip key affair (not that it matters as THAT refuses to work anyway...) 

And if anyone knows any ways to get in the damn thing without putting a window through Id be very grateful as there's a generator, 2 push bikes, 2 glass washers and an ice making machine in there just waiting to be flogged

Why do I keep buying French nonsense then try to convince myself that surely it won't be as bad as it was the last time I told myself I'd never buy anything French again?

This particularly odious specimen is a 2004 1.9D if that makes it any more palatable.....

I can understand your frustration, but it is hardly a fault of the car that you have lost the keys.

You do have the key card that came with the car, or is that someone elses fault as well?

No Solent sorry. You don't know this van, it's EVIL and definitely has it in for me. Even if I did have the key card it would be in the glove box. And yes, that would be it's doing too.....

I lost my bike keys the other day. Not in my pocket, on the key shelf, desk or coffee table. Had to use the spare to go on the Reading toy run and thought I;d look again when I got home. Wifey had moved my magnetic tank bag and somehow picked the key up on the magnets in the process, Durrrr!

Hoorah!

I've only dun found the key for it!

The battery was predictably flat so I swapped it for the one off my Vito and it fired up straight away.

The only problem now is the headlights are on all the time, the radio works/doesn't work/works and the indicators dont work. STOP is flashing nice and brightly on the dashboard and the speedo doesn't work either

These items used to work

I have done a BIS reset several times but no joy.

For an old thing with interstellar mileage it runs like a good 'un

Then again it should do, the replacement engine only had 80K on it.....

Any ideas apart from 'burn it'?

First thought would be before you disconnect the battery make sure everything is turned off including interior lights. Shut the door with window open, wait 5 minutes then remove battery terminals. Leave the connections off for 10 minutes then reconnect battery and then follow bsi reset. If you haven't got a remote key just skip that bit.
Are we there yet????? Huh

You could try looking after it, instead of abusing it! Regular servicing usually prevents the problems you listed - try getting it serviced - or use the Mercedes truck. Don't think Citroen ever made any heavy goods vehicles, does anybody know any different?
