so quite possible the missing key ( they are sold with 2) was the remote fob.

I'm not familiar with your van .. so cannot comment further,

BUT -
if it has driven motors ( for central locking)a common fix is get a remote fob from ebay, and spend @£80 getting it modified and coded into the vehicles body computer,

read one of the "NEW KEY" threads on the forum for more info.

my model doesn't have central locking.should it have?the key only goes so far in although the door opens and closes no problem on the rearm really struggling

have you used a paperlip /etc.. inserted to "full key depth"

to gauge that the hole is not blocked by a broken key/etc

that's the simplest reason for your issue.. otherwise it'll involve a strip of panel to see if other isses apply.

I've no idea if your rear lock should / is enabled to operate on the Central Locking.

I thought you can do that via the menu , to lock the doors the minute the van starts moving or with mes . mine is a 2010 ,I'll take it they'll be same. I've only got one key too.
