If you have lost or broken all your car keys, we can come to you and provide you with a new set of keys in minutes, without asking you to have your vehicle towed to our base or wait for 10 working days like the dealer will.
If you have one key that starts the engine and just need a spare, you can either book an appointment with one of our mobile specialists or you can save money by coming to our Discount Shop in North London (248 Archway Road, N65AX) and have it done here. Remember: it’s always more cost-effective to have your car key cloned so you’re prepared if one of them gets lost or broken.
Sometimes your remote fob or transponder chip becomes de-synchronized and needs diagnostic equipment to get it working again. Should this be your case, give us a call and save money from applying for a brand new set of keys.
Have you locked your car keys inside your vehicle or just need urgent access to your car? Our locksmiths are fully trained with secure techniques to gain entry to your vehicle without leaving a trace.

If you have problems with your door lock or ignition barrel (e.g. a key blade that snapped in the lock or a key that refuses to turn into the ignition), Autokey Squad can come and service your needs onsite and prices quoted are normally far lower than garages’.
All Peugeot Cars sold since 1995 are equipped with an immobiliser system fitted on the production line and linked to a small glass chip concealed inside the car key. Even though your key is very basic and doesn’t contain a battery or doesn’t have any buttons on it, there is still a passive transponder chip inside of it that will allow the engine to start. The way the Peugeot security system works is, the unique immobiliser searches electronically for a transponder chip each time a key is inserted into the ignition and turned. If the correct chip is present, the immo system will allow the Peugeot vehicle to start. If the immo system fails to detect a chip the fuel supply to the engine is cut off. It is normally impossible to bypass, override or remove a Peugeot immobiliser and still drive the vehicle.
Peugeot Car Keys particularly are usually protected by a four digit security code used to programme new keys. The information is usually supplied to new owners at point of sale on a credit-card sized piece of blue plastic. The information is typically supplied with the other vehicle documents and service history in the vehicle glove compartment. If you have lost all your car keys, it would speed up the replacement process if you find this 4 digit security code and have it handy before the technicians begin work on your vehicle.
If you find yourself in the unfortunate situation of having lost or broken all your car keys, you might think that the Dealer is the only one that can help getting you back on the road. While, dealers can supply a new key that will start your Peugeot vehicle, our customers find that there are quite a few drawbacks related to booking with them:
- Towing costs: If your vehicle is locked or you don’t have a key to start the engine, you will have to tow your car to the dealer
-High Dealer Charges: Dealers have expensive showrooms and forecourts to maintain so by dealing direct with Peugeot. If all keys are lost, authorized High street Dealers can replace your Peugeot key fobs at a cost of £300 or more depending on the exact model of vehicle. Also, in some situations, the dealer might suggest the whole lock & ignition system must be replaced which will increase the costs even more
- 10 Working Days Time Delay before you can start using your vehicle: Because the Dealer will order the Peugeot car keys directly from the manufacturer, the ordering & shipping process might take up to 10 working days or even more.
- Few Visits to the Dealer: You will need to take the car there initially so the dealer places the order and then you will need return to collect the car keys and get them programmed to your car
- Take time off work: Because the Dealers normally work during office hours, you might need to take time off work or dedicate time in the weekend to deal with ‘lost car keys’ nightmare
Serving thousands of customers every year since 2009, the feedback we have received is that our service is more convenient for a number of reasons:
-Time & Place Convenience: Unlike the dealer that will ask you to bring the vehicle to their base so the technicians can start the car key replacement procedure, we will dispatch one of our car key specialists that will travel to you in a mobile unit clearly marked with our logo at a time & place that suits you the best. Our fully trained specialists can help with any car key related issue that you may be facing including being locked out of the vehicle, if your key has snapped inside the ignition, if you have lost all your car keys or if you just need re-programming or refurbishment.
-Save Money: Car Key Specialists offer better value on quality replacement Peugeot Car Keys by cutting and programming a bespoke new key to the existing lock barrels and immobiliser. Also, our overheads are lower than many franchised car dealerships with expensive showrooms – meaning we can often deliver cost savings to customers who buy directly from us.
-Save Even More: Very old Peugeot Car Keys (manufactured prior to 1995) often contain no transponder chip. This radically reduces the cost of new car keys for this age of vehicle.
-Money-back guarantee promise: All AutoKey Squad work carries a full money-back guarantee of quality workmanship. In addition to that all work is covered by 1 year guarantee
-Quality Assurance: Autokey Squad never compromises on quality and all our experienced technicians carry the latest diagnostic equipment on-board to ensure our workmanship on your Peugeot vehicle is completed to highest possible standard.
If your Peugeot vehicle was purchased second hand and you have just 1 key that starts the engine, Autokey Squad strongly recommends that you purchase a second set of keys so in case of an emergency or if the key that you currently have gets lost, you still have a backup set. Getting a spare key produced in advance can save you more than £100 if you unfortunately lost your existing Peugeot key.
If you have time, and can drive to our Discount Shop in Highgate, North London (248 Archway Road, London, N65 AX), you can get a spare key created here by one of our technicians while you wait. Prices are aprox. 30% lower than our Mobile service and up to 70% lower than what the Dealers charge.
Just to give you an idea of our Discount Shop prices, Peugeot basic keys can cost as little as £57 including VAT and programming.

“Most of the first Peugeot models fitted with transponder chip keys were equipped without a Pincode to protect the immobiliser chip. This made replacing Peugeot Car Keys relatively quick and simple – even transponder key cutting. However, the technology has moved on now as the latest stage in this cat and mouse game and I would advise always using an experienced car key specialist who can bypasss the Pin Code security. The systems were introduced after transponder chips and immobiliser systems started to be introduced into car security systems in the mid-Nineties. The ECU is an abbreviation for the Electronic Control Unit – it’s the computer that basically functions as the Peugeot’s brain and decides whether to allow the engine to start etc.
Many of our customers are relieved to see us – before calling us they often think that the only way to buy a new key is to approach the main dealership. As Peugeot Car Key Specialists, my company AutoKey Squad can genuinely offer customers massive savings totalling up to hundreds of pounds if a customer has lots all their Peugeot keys. We come to the customer’s vehicle to cut a replacement key, whereas Peugeot Dealerships will normally ask a motorist to get their vehicle to a dealer on a low-loader.
Each job is a bit different. My first challenge is usually gaining entry to the vehicle if a customer has lost all their keys. I use proprietary techniques taught by AutoKey Squad over the years to achieve this without leaving any evidence of my work on the vehicle. It’s another reason it’s worth hiring a professional firm of Peugeot Car Key Specialists such as my employer AutoKey Squad. I wouldn’t want to run the risk of letting some cowboy white van man Transit driver damage the vehicle I need to rely on every day.
There’s also another factor at play here. Because all AutoKey Squad technicians are qualified lock specialists, we can work with the customer’s existing locks. We cut and create a brand new replacement Peugeot key which fits the existing door locks and ignition barrel. After that, we use dealer-standard diagnostic tools to programme a small glass transponder chip into the Peugeot vehicle’s ECU.
I’ve heard many cases of Peugeot dealers booking an appointment four days later to supply a replacement car key. We pride ourselves on supplying new car keys to customers within a few hours.”
REMEMBER: Using an independent Car Key Specialist like Autokey Squad will typically save you around £40-£50 on dealership prices. In addition, a mobile technician will visit your Peugeot car wherever it is located to supply your new Peugeot remote control key at the roadside at a time convenient to you. Available appointment times include out-of-hours appointments during evenings, weekends or early mornings at no extra charge.
