Customer Question
I have lost the transponder...
I have lost the transponder chip from my key fob, Peugeot 206. And now, the car obviously wont start. it turns over, but will not start and an error message comes up on the display saying immobiliser fault. is there any way of deactivating/disabling the immobiliser? taking out a fuse etc? I only have the one key for the vehicle.
