It should be possible to synchronise the fob without Lexia, just by turning on the ignition with a coded key, and then pressing the lock (or unlock, not sure which) button on the fob.

OK Thanks RichardW, I may just make the purchase and see what happens.

Yes, that will only resynchronise an already coded key transponder of course. But I can't say the remote locking / unlocking functions will work for sure though.

I'm sure you'll come back and confirm though :-D

If you are programming the key itself (as if you bought a new key fob), yes you will need the confidential customer code. This would of been supplied on a card with the vehicle. If you no longer have it, Citroen can supply this to you for about £15. You should be able to obtain your Key code (which is the code needed to cut a new key blade and is not the same as the confidential code for programming) plus the confidential code at the same time included in the charge.

You will need to show proof of ownership of the vehicle, like the V5, plus personal identification and something confirming address like a bill or similar.
