I have seen one Xantia that the keypad was disabled, I asked the
customer the start code and he said "dont bother with that it has never
worked and starts fine if you leave it alone" So me being a nosey
bugger had a quick look, when i lifted the keypad out I noticed that
the Grey wire going to the keypad had been cut and put to earth.
I am not saying that this will do it, as I am not an electrical guru,
but it seemed to work on this one. Maybe someone else can comfirm
Be it on yer own head to try it.
im in mac ( email@example.com) gurgled happily, sounding much like
they were saying :
<tries to think>
I know that's been mentioned on the XM email list - IIRC it's a symptom of
poor connections. Take the keypad out, clean it all up, and put it back
together. If you get the keypad working, then you can clip a wire, but you
MUST have the green light and the car starting when you do so.
IIRC you can just disconnect it when the car is running. The other
possibility is fuse F2 (I believe). Someone blew that fuse in my Xantia
once (not me, a garage) and this disabled the keypad. Mined ewe it also
disabled the speedo as well.
