C4 Grand Picasso Key Type

Post by niallmoran »

Afternoon folks - i've been looking at getting another key for our 2008 C4GP and i think i've worked out that i can do the programming using lexia if i get the code from citroen dealers and get hold of a new, blank key. Looking on ebay, there seem to be a fair few very similar but different 3 button keys and i was hoping somebody could point me in the direction of which one i need :?:

Cheers
Niall

Niall - it is very important that you get the correct fob.

The part number is: 6490A2 from Citroen - bit the specifics you need for the 3-button one are as follows:

Transponder: ID46 - PCF7941
Frequency: 433 Mhz
Key Blade: HU83

Some suppliers of genuine ones:

sorry, one last question (hopefully!) - how much (roughly) do the dealers charge for the PIN code? I see that car keys online offer the service for around 35 quid:

If it's about the same cost, then it would be much handier to do it online as our nearest citroen dealer is a fair bit away.

The charge can depend upon the dealership. On one occasion I got it for free, while at a later date (and for a different Citroen) the same dealership charged me £15.

You will need to take proof of ownership of the vehicle when you go.

I got the codes for our X7 and 308 a few months ago. Cost me £60!
