Ayup from the East Midlands...!

Post by Feee » 29 Jul 2013, 00:31

Hi, ~ driven a '98 ZX 4 last 3 years! (NON TURBO I'm afraid :()
BUT EXCELLENT workhorse. =D> Just wondered if it's possible to get hold of a 'remote fob'?
Mine didn't come with one but it's got the 'black knobbly bit' :oops: for one!
Wanted Citroën paint too but given up bothering with local Citroën dealer...
~ just get told their 'RECORDS DON'T GO THAT FAR BACK!' :evil: :x cheeky *******
Cheers Feeee

Hi Feee

I'm pretty sure I've got a pair of ZX remotes (that were working 5 years ago.... :roll: ) and the matching receiver computer (unless I chucked that a few weeks ago) - I'll check. If I've still got them you're welcome to them for the cost of the postage :lol:

Found them....but..... looking on service.citroen it appears the transmitter might be paired with the receiver in the roof (which I didn't save) rather than the CL computer which I did save :evil: Nonetheless, they're not heavy, and I am happy to post them to you if you want them to try - one of the remotes still lights up!! No idea if you can code the transmitter to the car as you can with a Mk1 Xantia.

#-o :roll: :oops:
Well... Forgot password to log in so not been able to get on for several months! :roll: #-o
Also had trouble with Internet connection. :x
Thanks for offer of help with remote... unfortunately... :oops: :x
Had momentary lapse of concentration... and killed my ZX off, well 'Beyond economical repair'
I believe is the phrase... :evil: :cry: ](*,)
So went out and got another one! :-D Dare I say even better than my first one!
Last one had for 3 and half years sort of blue/green, park next to green car looked blue,
park next to blue car looked green! If you get what I'm saying!
This other one is labelled as BEIGE [-X BUT it just looks pale gold thank goodness!
Slightly lower spec: No sunroof, colour coded bumper/wing mirrors, front fog lights etc. BUT it has got a working radio!!! LOL AND a years MOT AND 3000 less miles!
Result... happy and looking forward to more years in my 'new 16 year old' ZX!!! :-D 8-)
What I don't get is having to change insurance half way through term means £25 for a 2 minute job whilst I watched him print the certificate and although identical car £156 a year more insurance EVEN though have maximum no claims PROTECTED??? Doesn't seem any point in protecting it if their just going to rip you off anyway...? :evil: :evil: :evil:
