Hi .

The problem with Peugeot is most aftermarket programming tools will not communicate with the Immo modules.

I suggest you have this done by the dealer or find another mobile locksmith that has the correct equipment.

I know this first hand as i had the same problem trying to program a customer Peugeot not long ago .i was using the SBB programmer and T100 did not work . had to take it to the dealer .

First check this link out as many locksmith carry the dealer programming software and will be able to assist you .

If the first keysmith just wanted to make a copy for you and you had the original key he could of helped you .

But without a key it has to be new programmed making it hard for him with his tools ..

All you did was lose the key so the system should be okay .
