Peugeot 106 Keypad Immobiliser  
Peugeot 106 Keypad Immobiliser - Kearney
Please save me from this nightmare! I bought my Peugeot 106 about 4 months ago and the keypad immobiliser was not working. The previous owner did not know the code for the keypad anyway.

On Sunday I had a new stereo fitted at Halfords and whilst this was being done, the Halfords chap realised that one of the fuses was blown. He offered to replace it and when he inserted the new fuse, the immobiliser came on.

As I don't know the code, the previous owner dont know the code and Halfords washing their hands of any wrongdoing, the car is now at a Peugeot dealer in Stevenage.

Got off the phone with them this morning and they informed me that they are unable to reset the keypad! They have no idea what to do. The guy told me the last resort is to replace the entire ECU at a cost of £900!!! Surely this must have happened before and there must be a sollution?

Please help!!

Can't you just pull the offending fuse back out? Remember to tell your insurers though that the immobiliser isn't working as they'll love that if you try and claim in the future.

Is your 106 petrol or diesel? On a car of this value, drastic measures are in order to keep costs realistic (dealers have no notion of this concept).

If it's a diesel you can drill out the protective cover (or its shear bolts) from the stop solenoid on the injection pump - it's not that easy but it might be the cheapest option. A good local independent diesel specialist will probably have done a few if you're feeling faint hearted. Then simply rewire the shutoff solenoid to be live when the "ignition" is on.

Have you tried the default code number
one
one
one
one.................ie 1111

you may have to leave the ignition switched on for half an hour though prior to it reaccepting it

pewgot garage pah . get it out of there pronto i suggest

Tried 1111 and 0001. I specifically took it a dealer as I thought they would simply be able to reset the code with a master override. Apparently not!

Are there no specialist companies that can "hack" into the ecu to get the old code?

find a decent breaker that will sell you chipped key / ignition barrel and new brain £100 (try 24/7)
fit it yourself an hours job
or get a local independant


you may find a place that offfers to reset these
i never found one
most of them are liars cheats and not to be trusted they also want money to look and then say it cant be done
take my first paragraph as the way forward

It doesn't that often happen to petrol - it's usually diesels, where it's 'fairly' easy to override. As noted though, on the petrols it is encoded into the ECU, and not so easy to overcome. bba-reman will know if it's possible to re-code the ECU. Otherwise you probably need to get one from a scrappers with a known code and swap it over. Alternatively, ask the local lads hanging around they will probably know how to bypass it!

Is it illogical? It must be Citroen....

Is there no clue either in documentation, rear window sticker, or number plates, of the original selling dealer?
They may have a record of the code even if Peugeot UK don't.
I used this method to get the radio code for the missus' 306; even though it was seven or so years old at the time such info still existed on (either their own or Peugeot UK's) computer system, and took but seconds to retrieve.

You are all missing the fact that the valet number ie default has been changed therefore the ecu is encoded with the number a previous owner has inputted.(therefore any record at dealer will be worthless)
A man with a multimeter will not crack this trust me, i spent a week a few years ago trying, when these cars were common as they could come cheap if the 1111 code wasnt available.
Bba may be able to unset it but the million dolla question is.....................................can they do it cheper than a breaker?..............i tink not
But am always reddy to be amazeled
