There is nothing quite as infuriating as a Citroen car or van that won’t start because the immobiliser just isn’t working. The good news is that this isn’t something that needs a main dealer to sort as here at Eyden’s we are fully equipped to get you going again.
Common Citroen Immobiliser problems
Every day we get calls from people who are locked out or are having problems with their Citroen car or van and many of these problems are easily solved.
Common Citroen problems include;
- The Central Locking stops working
- Your car or van won’t start and the immobiliser light comes on
- The immobiliser light is constantly flashing
- The car starts then stops
- Your alarm is not working
- The key has an undefined problem and stops working
If you are suffering any of these with your Citroen van or car then don’t worry, we can help. The list above is not exhaustive and they are just some of the many symptoms of immobiliser faults.
At Eydens Locksmiths we are able to undertake immobiliser re-programming which means your Citroen car or van can work again without having to change your original locks and or keys. Avoid the main dealer prices, call out Eydens.
Citroen Relay problems
We are repairing lots of Ducato, Relay and Boxer ECU’s and immobilisers. These regularly get corrupted when the vehicles are jump started and then will not start afterwards. We can make good a repair on these by sending us the ECU and immobiliser box. This saves the need to have a new immobiliser and keys done at the dealers at a fraction of the cost. The good news is that it can all be done by post if you are at a distance and want to fit it yourself or we can also call out to remove the ECU and Immobilizer box for you if you are within thirty miles of our workshop.
The symptoms of this problem are that the car does not start after flat battery or jump start and key light flashes. Also Locksmiths and Technicians will notice that there is erroneous data from immobiliser or 8+ keys showing as programmed.
Many of us don’t realise the fault on our immobiliser until it has been diagnosed by a mechanic. Panic sets in and we think there’s something seriously wrong with our car, we just don’t know what exactly. Luckily in some Citroen’s, the dash shows an immobiliser fault – a really handy feature if you have it! Remember, an immobiliser fault doesn’t mean mechanical failure and can be fixed easily, although we do appreciate the inconvenience that it causes.
