Forget all about reverse enginnering key fobs.
Key fobs use rolling codes to prevent nearby car thieves from reading the code with an RF-scanner when you press the unlock button and then be able to use this code afterwards.
If the key fob actually did send the same code each time the key was pressed then it would be way too easy for thieves to break into any car they wanted to.

A rolling code (or sometimes called a hopping code) is used in keyless entry systems to prevent replay attacks, where an eavesdropper records the transmission and replays it at a later time to cause the receiver to 'unlock'.
Such systems are typical in garage door openers and keyless car entry systems. The most widely spread algorithm for code hopping systems today is KeeLoq..

You are probably best off buying a new original key from your Peugeot dealer and have them progamming your car to pair it with your new key.
Here's how to re-synchronize a key if an already programmed key has lost synchronization with the car:

For some cars specialist hardware is required to re-program the vehicle keys.
The normal course of action would be to use your main authorised car dealer but this can prove very expensive.
Luckily, there are numerous auto locksmith companies available offering re-encoding other than using your main authorised dealer.
There are companies that will produce master keys or re-encode your transponders. If you've just lost your keys and your car is parked where it will attract fines or even removal calling an on-site auto locksmith specialist is probably your best bet.
Before you call the company check all your car's paperwork. Most cars have a code card supplied when new. Check your car's manual and service book folder for this. This code may be required when creating new master keys. The alternative may be far more expensive so make a thorough check for this information.
