Interesting to say the least that the OP (with the same username :roll: ) asked the same question on another forum several months ago, except that his dad's car was then a Xsara!

Sorry to bring a thread back from the dead but I may have been a complete numpty and forgot his pin code in his Activa :(

Car has been parked up for a month and I've had another car with a keypad in the interim so I think I'm stuffed!!!!

Is there anyone with an ecu with a known code or anyone know of a service that will delete the bloody thing from the ecu if I send it off to them at all?

If it was easy to bypass it wouldn't be a very good immobiliser now would it ? :lol:

Every other model of Xantia fitted with one can be resolved very easily but the tct is the only issue one...

There must be a simpler way for this engine... Maybe dickieg knows a way as he aluded to previously and let's face it, how many of us still have the keypad if we can get rid of it?

Everyone I have I replace the sodding things with oddment trays as they do nothing but cause annoyance. Do you really enjoy putting the code in everytime you want to use the car...

Indeed, the TCT is the only one in my experience where the keypad cannot be rendered inoperative in the usual way... I do not know why this is...
