That doesn't make sense to me, as the Xsara Picasso from its launch in 2000 in the UK had Remote central locking as standard!

You just may not have the remote locking fob that you can order from your dealer that operates it, as these often get lost and not replaced. I really would not bother wrecking the car to fit this - as you could end up causing more problems, due to the multiplexed wiring on the Picasso.

What is the VIN number and I'll be able to confirm this for you, but I'm 99.9% sure it will have.

ok, so confirmed that they all have central locking, including yours.

Your version is just before the change to VAN CAN multiplexing. Your remote fob would of looked something like this:

Do you have this type of fob? If not you may have only been passed the other key that looked like this:

Regardless of type, each has a transponder chip incorporated into the fob. The larger fob in the first diagram has the additional circuitry to send the remote locking and unlocking requests to the vehicle.

If you are missing the fob, you can get one ordered from the dealer which will contain a new key blade and remote and they will code it to the vehicle for you.

There are aftermarket suppliers of copies of these fobs, but unless you get the right one you may have issues. Regardless it will need coding to the vehicle using Citroen's software. The part number for your fob is 6490L8 and these are £123.28 inc. VAT from Citroen for the remote fob.
