306 Central Locking

    I have an N reg 306 D Turbo which is supposed to have an alarm fitted, I
    know it has an immobiliser because it has the keypad which I have to type my
    code in before setting off. However the hand book describes the locking
    operations with a key which has two buttons on. My key only has one button.
    When I press the button it locks the doors but the indicators don't flash so
    I don't think it is arming it.

    Do you think maybe I have a replacement key rather than the original? And
    if so any ideas on how to set the alarm when locking up?

  2. The way I understand it from the manual is that the second button on the
    remote is to deadlock the car, this means that the doors cannot be opened at
    all without the key (as apposed to being able to pull the button up from the
    inside, etc.). If you only have one button then it would imply that your
    306 doesn't have this feature. As far as the alarm goes, it sounds like you
    don't have one. In the manual it talks about a switch on the right hand
    side of the stearing column that can be used to disable the alarm when the
    key is in the ignition, I would imagine if you don't have such a switch then
    you don't have an alarm.

    I hope this has been helpful. I have recently bought a 306 myself and I have
    been finding new things on it that I didn't know about, so I've been
    learning quite a lot about it.

    If the indicators don't flash and you don't get a beep then either you dont
    have an alarm or its dissabled or even broken

    Very few peugeots if any have alarms as standard as peugeot are cheap whores
    who will do anything to save 5p and increase their profit margin

    Very few people get a peugeot dealer fitted alarm as who wants to pay
    £300-£600 for a £100 alarm system?

    The second button on the key if for deadlocking the car. If you have one
    button you have an IR remote key, if you have a 2 button you have an RF key

    My N reg 306 DTurbo has an alarm fitted as standard so I would assume that
    Alex's would too. My IR remote key has two buttons. A large one to
    lock/unlock the car and a smaller one to deadlock and set the alarm.

    I have seen replacement remote keys for sale that have only a single button
    and are therefore incapable of setting an alarm or deadlocking the car. It
    sounds like Alex has one of those. As far as I know the only way to set the
    alarm is to use the second button on the remote key. You can deadlock the
    car if you physically use the key to lock it and hold the key turned in the
    lock until you hear the deadlocks activate.

    I agree that Peugeot are cheap whores though. :)
