So that will just be for the starting then - no remote locking - but should be suitable to test the coding if it.

Yes, just want to test my aerials etc, if this works i'll (begrudgingly) order an expensive two button key!

Can mine be programmed to have the 3 button key at all?

No, that one would't serve any purpose as the middle button functions have to be a feature supported on the car itself - plus it would likely be a different board anyway. Let us know how you get on.

Back on the road!

Can’t lock the bloody thing though!

£5 pug transponder aerial was worth every penny!

Too right! AUX cable works now as well. Now to bury my head in the manual and work out how to set the clock and turn off TRAFFIC FLASH.

Was on the A444 earlier listening to Sledgehammer by Peter Gabriel and I was interrupted by the traffic alert!

Marc- would you add me to the list of people with Lexia and willing to help please?

Not even using the old key-in-the-lock method?

Excellent, well done for following it through.

I'll ask Steve to add you to the list, but could you perhaps update your profile to narrow down your location as the West Midlands covers a large area :-D

That’s normal, the same happens with the C3.

The cable holding the transponder aerial has worked itself loose over night. I’ve put it back in but can’t start the car.

Does it have to go in a precise way or is it symmetrical? I’ve tried both sides but no joy.

Do I need to clear the fault codes first?

Is this the replacement you bought that fits over the ignition barrel?

Yes, the cable end has worked itself lose as it does not have the same fitting as the Citroen one.

Kettle's boiling and i'm going to go outside and run the key programming through Leixa so I can get an indication of when the coil is working, as opposed to fiddling and trying to turn my engine over over and over again!
