xantia/C5 keys.

Post by lankytim »

Hi all,

I've scored a coupe of 3 button keys from a 54 reg C5, can they be made to work on my late Xantia??
Thanks.

Probably not, but if you can get it to work, let us know. :lol:

Probably easier for me to get a C5 to go with the keys!

I'm pretty sure that C5 keys are a one-time only thing as far as matching to a particular car goes. There have been failed attempts to get them to match a different car than originally linked to.

And I've successfully learnt my existing keys on a different CPH on my Xantia, so if Xantia keys can be re-learnt and C5 keys can't they must be different...
