Re: van will not start
First let me tell you that i have never had the opportunity to service a peugeot, so all i can do here is give you a guess. it sounds to me like your vehicle uses key code matching technology, a security scheme where the vehicle and the key sort of talk to each other and if the key doesn't send the right code to the car the car won't start. just why this might happen i don't know but my guess is you are going to have to go to the dealership to find someone who has access to the equipment to sort it out. hope that helps

If you try to use a blank key chip in a vehicle that is meant to use a key with a chip installed, the chances are excellent that your vehicle will not start. The computer chip in the key mates with a piece of program code in your car's computer system. When the two halves are there, your Pontiac will start easily, however, if you attempt to bypass the coded key, your van won't start. For most drivers, this is not an issue, unless an ignition key is lost. If you lose the key you will have to replace it with a matching one which will prove expensive. It can cost up to $85 or more to replace this type of key in some cars because the key has to be encoded to work with your van. Unless you know someone with a blank spare for the same vehicle who will give the key to you, as well as someone who can program the key, then you will have to pay the freight on a new key and encoding.

Have the codes read. This will start you in the right direction. Quit taking advice from people who are guessing. The van died , the check engine light is on. read the codes and then we can help. Unless you want me to guess also.
go to a key cutter and they will cut a key for the van and reprogram it all at the same time,tip to reprogram put key into drivers door or ign and push any button and hold for 30 seconds and the system will reset.please rate this advice.adrian,,,,,,,,,
Before you start the vehicle make sure your door is shut and everything is off then insert your key into the ignition and hold down the Odometer Reset button and the turn the key to the on position(where all of the dash lights come on just before starting the van) this will start a self diagnosis of the van let go of the button the gauges should all cycle and all of the warning lights should come on then down where your mileage would be showing it will give you a list of any Fault Codes that maybe present if there is any write them down and call your dodge dealer or you can look some codes up on line.Hope this helped god luck.
Can mean many things, automatic gearbox, emissions problems and if it flashes, it is an immobilizer fault. The car can be driven, if running ok but the engine management system should be checked ASAP. You will need EOBD diagnostic equipment to find cause. vauxhall can check this 4 u but it will cost u £47 unfortuanely but 4 that price u can get the diagnostic reader ur self the port is under the ash tray or the cover below the hand brakeRAC.htm">http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/7402742/Trail/searchtext>RAC.htm
Unfortunately there is no solution to this except to take it back to Iveco for reprogramming.
I am led to believe from my locksmith that there are two types of transponders generally put into cars and vans.
The first is a simple chip wtih a code which matches a code in the car / Van
The second is a chip which has a set of codes. They are read in order and the car / van remembers which one was used last. If you use the wrong code in the sequence then the car / van will ignore it and not let you start the engine.
The Iveco is unfortunately in the second group. If, like me, you snap your key, you can superglue a new key to the old and it works fine. The chip doesn't need to be "too" close to the barrel. Yes, it looks ugly, but it's much cheaper!
You need to find out what code is in the computer. Either have it scanned or flip the key on off on off on off on.(three times) The check engine light will flash to tell you the codes. ie 2 long flashes, followed by two short flashes would be code 22. It will repeat each code three times. It will start with code 12 and end with code 55. Code 12 is start code and 55 is end code. What ever codes come up between these codes, write them down and post.
