Car electrics & key programming
As part of our comprehensive range of services, we offer thorough car key reprogramming to all vehicle owners throughout Finchley and North London. A law has been in place since the mid-1990s that states that all private vehicles be fitted with an anti-theft immobiliser, meaning that cars will not start unless the key specially programmed for that vehicle is used in the ignition. The system uses a transponder chip that communicates with the car’s engine control unit (ECU), ensuring that only specified keys will work, and this is often extended to door locks and remote control access.
When new keys are cut for a car, this key programming must be carried out, and the experts at Citroen-Peugeot Specialists have both the skill and equipment to provide this service at a highly competitive rate. We are also able to provide key reprogramming for faulty or defective keys, getting you back on the road again in no time. For more information, or to schedule a key reprogramming, get in touch or drop by our garage today. Please note: for security reasons, we require proof of vehicle ownership before performing key reprogramming.
