Remote control problem

Following disconnection of the vehicle battery, replacement of the remote control battery or in the event of a remote control malfunction, you can no longer unlock, lock or locate your vehicle.

First of all, use the key in the lock to unlock or lock your vehicle.
Then, reinitialise the remote control.

If the problem persists, contact a PEUGEOT dealer as soon as possible.

Reinitialisation

Switch off the ignition.
Turn the key to position 2 (Ignition).
Press the closed padlock immediately for a few seconds.
Switch off the ignition and remove the key from the ignition switch.

The remote control is fully operational again.

Changing the battery

Battery ref.: CR1620 / 3 volts.

Battery ref.: CR1620 / 3 volts.

If the battery is flat, you are informed by lighting of this warning lamp in the instrument panel, an audible signal and a message in the screen.

  • Unclip the cover using a screwdriver in the cutout.
  • Remove the cover.
  • Extract the flat battery from its location.
  • Place the new battery into its location observing the original direction.
  • Clip the cover in place.

Do not throw the remote control batteries away, they contain metals which are harmful to the environment. Take them to an approved collection point.

Lost keys

Visit a PEUGEOT dealer with the vehicle's registration document, your personal identification documents and if possible the key code label.

The PEUGEOT dealer will be able to look up the key code and the transponder code required to order a new key.

Remote control

The high frequency remote control is a sensitive system; do not operate it while it is in your pocket as there is a possibility that it may unlock the vehicle, without you being aware of it.

Do not repeatedly press the buttons of your remote control out of range and out of sight of your vehicle. You run the risk of stopping it from working and the remote control would have to be reinitialised.

The remote control does not operate when the key is in the ignition switch, even when the ignition is switched off, except for reinitialisation.

Locking the vehicle

Driving with the doors locked may make access to the passenger compartment by the emergency services more difficult in an emergency.

However, the vehicle unlocks automatically in the event of a serious impact causing airbag deployment.

As a safety precaution (with children on board), remove the key from the ignition switch when you leave the vehicle, even for a short time.

Anti-theft protection

Do not make any modifications to the electronic engine immobiliser system; this could cause malfunctions.

When purchasing a second-hand vehicle

Have the pairing of all of the keys in your possession checked by a PEUGEOT dealer, to ensure that only your keys can be used to open and start the vehicle.
