Peugeot 407

I have had a valve stem break (electronic monitoring system) when removing a punctured rear tyre, so now the dash is just reading STOP with the spare (normal valve)fitted. I have purchased a repair kit for the valve stem which the local company will put in when they put on a new tyre for me tomorrow, but the Peugeot agent has told me that IF it works then the computer will have to be reset (by a Peugeot agent). Is this correct or is there a more simple answer? The Peugeot agent also told me that it is impossible to repair the wheel valve and that I should be having a complete new unit fitted to the wheel. They have quoted me a rough figure of £100 for the valva plus fitting £30 and resetting the electronics at about £40+. When I said that it sounds like a lot of money they suggested that I have all the wheel valves replaced with normal rubber ones and do away with the dash monitoring / warning system. Can anyone help?

Answers

I had this issue with my last 407 (55 plate saloon), where the car alerted me to low tyre pressure, so I attached the pump and the stem snapped off. I purchased replacement stem from eBay for about £15, and a local independent garage fitted it for £10. No need to reset the sensor as it remains the same. I then did the same with the remaining tyre valves. It happens because the stems are aluminium and corrode/weaken over time, especial if you have lost the caps. If an actual sensor breaks then you do need to get the cars computer resynced to the new sensor. The same independent garage sourced me one for about £70 fitted and the sensor resynced. If you can't get a garage to sync a new sensor there are loads of people with the Peugeot software whom can do it for the price of a coffee. Davr from West Sussex

Peugeot 807 2005

I’ve got a problem with my Peugeot 807. At first I got the message that the passenger airbag was deactiveated and the airbag fault and the warning lights turned on. Sometimes it disappeared but now it’s back. Now also the wipers and lights doesn’t work, but if I turn the ignition on and off it starts working again for a while. Also the warning light for "Antipollution fault" turned on. Can anyone please help me?

Answers

Have you been able to fix this fault? I have the same fault only while the engine is off the lights/wipers work ok and the passenger airbag deactivated/airbag fail is displayed after a few seconds. Once the engine is started the wipers and lights come on and can not be turned off. (It was raining and dark when I looked at the car). The only thing I could find was the lid on the under bonnet fuse box was loose and there was moisture in it. I sprayed some wd40 in there and have left it to dry out Phil from Rutland

What would cause the brakes to stick on my 52 plate 106? After i have been driving for a bit the brakes stick on and the car will hardly move. I have recently had the discs and pads changed to the front but when this happens the front wheels get really hot.

Answers

It is almost always the flexi hoses between the Caliper and the brake pipe. They degrade inside over time and eventually they stop allowing the caliper to release. Also, conveniently they are easy to replace. It can often happen if perhaps, someone unbolts the calipers and lets them hang down on the flexi hoses when working on the pads or bearings and such.

!. What causes the DEPOLUTION SYSTEM FAULT ?? 2. Why is my car very sluggish and slow on the slightest of incline ??

Answers

Mine did this as it had sat around a while. I put redex into the fuel tank, gave it a good drive and it`s been fine now. Also check the sensors, when they get dirty antipollen filter comes up sheena sedge from Kent

Depollution control means that the engine computer has had to make a control to the fuel injector system as the output gasses are wrong. Two main possibilities, spark plugs need changing as they are misfiring - when that happens the engine management system cuts the fuel to the injectors. Or, the injectors are blocked - in fuel additives MIGHT help hopefully as new injectors VERY Expensive.Royston Wareham from Kent

Answers

Could be the wheel bearing making that noise, or where the brake disc is behind there`s around dust plate, could be that catching the brake disc, so you have to check that, but maybe try another garage if that mechanic doesn`t know that. Andris from Ireland

Hi. What type of steering fluid do i need for my 407

Answers

It is called "Fluide DA" and is fully synthetic power steering oil. I think you will have to get it from a Peugeot or Citroen dealer as I did for a top up. I cannot remember the price but seem to remember that a litre bottle cost me less than 20 euro I do not know how you can bleed the system but suspect that you can just run the engine and hence the pump. Perhaps one of the experts can confirm this and advise on how much fluid you need if your leak has lost you all of the original. Good luck with the problem. Andris from Ireland

Peugeot Boxer

Hi I have a 1996 boxer 320 2.5 TD. (Don't know if its mwb 0r swb) When starting from cold, no problem and runs ok on steady tick over. After a few minutes as the engine warms up the tick over becomes less even and the running lumpy. If a small amount of throttle is given and held on for several more minutes, and then removed, the engines fine and returns to a steady tick over again. If you study the dashboard temperature gauge during this period the bad running always happens just as the hand/needle starts to move indicating the engine is warming up. I have had this problem for 3yr and lived with it, but would really like to know the cause. Thanks Keith

Answers

Hello, possible temp sender to ecu keeping it in cold. Too much fuel, is it smoking slightly when this happens?

Have you over heated the engine? This can damage to the head cylinder. If she does not heat up and use water then it’s the relay by radiator. Cam belt needs changing at 70,000 miles, so if you acquired the car with that milage then it’s more than likely it is original. Get it done as it can cause serious damage.

Answers

Replying to myself, found answer to my problem on another page. The problem with your boot lock is caused by 1-- the boot release handle lever stuck in 2-- the boot release handle micro switch full of water The boot lock is released by the release lever pushing on the micro switch which tells the BSI to unlock the boot catch. The micro switch is in the boot handle, this can be removed by removing the inner tailgate trim then removing the 2 securing nuts on the handle, disconnect the switch wire connector and remove the whole handle. You can now check if the release lever is stuck by moving the lever, you should be able to hear or feel the micro switch click. Sometimes the little spring tag that returns the lever is broken or cracked causing the lever not to fully return causing the problems with the boot not locking,(WD 40 can be used on the lever pivot point to help free it up a bit). If you are happy with the lever operation a new micro switch is required, these can be bought from any Peugeot dealer Owen Elves from Wiltshire

Have you checked the child lock screw hasn't been turned to the locked position? This screw is located in the step of the actual door under the door locking mechanism. You can turn it with the ignition key. This isolates the interior door handle from operating and only allows access from the outside. Failing that does your Peugeot have a door lock switch on the dash? This locks the door and prevents the outside door latches working - access can only be gained by the operation of the inside door handles/ latches. Chris from Nottinghamshire

If this sounds like what yours is doing it'll be a new dashboard.

Just recently my car has started to cut out. It only happened when reversing at first but now it's happening when I'm driving. I'm not stalling it and no warning signs are appearing before it happens. The last time my car was in the garage I was told I had a small oil leak. Could low oil level cause the car to cut out?

Answers

Could be a small valve within the air /. Heat pipes, my Audi did the same thing and this cured it rob from South Yorkshire

Hi, the last few days while I've been driving my stop light has been flashing and my handbrake light comes on. My car isn't overheating as that's what I thought it would be. Anyone know what may be causing this?

Have you checked the brake fluid level? Could have a leaking wheel cylinder or front pads could be low rob from South Yorkshire

My Peugeot 307`s driver`s side rear light cluster failed. I assumed initially it was the bulbs. On taking them out of the cluster 3 out of the 5 were discoloured, although all the filaments were intact. I changed them all to be safe but it made no difference, the complete cluster still didn`t work. On closer inspection of the white plastic connector for where all the wires come in, I see the middle prong in the connector has melted or burned away, such that it is shorter than the other four. There is some darkening of the plastic around the base of the connector. Presumably this line has been heating up for some reason. My question is whether this is a known issue and whether it`s an easy fix for an Auto Electrician? Cheers. (307 Hdi Station Wagon/Estate)

It’s a common issue with rear light clusters, that pin which has melted is your earth pin caused by high resistance - simple fix repair connector Kev from England

Peugeot are renowned for this problem, more so if you tow. Fit another earth to the cluster. My block connecter has melted and I can't get one anywhere. Scappy is good but most have already gone. Main dealer is a rear wiring loom - ouch. Peugeot will never admit to this problem. According to them it don't exist. WAKE UP PEUGEOT IT DOES. Look at all the forums (if you dare) derek from Gwynedd

Can anyone tell me how to drain my camper van water heater tank. Where is tank and where any drain/ fill valve is situated? I have a Peugeot boxer diesel 2.2 Autocruiser.

Hi, it`s in the wardrobe, lift the lever so it points in the up position. Just got one myself Colin from Hertfordshire

The lever will empty the hot water tank / heating tank (if it gets very cold it will dump the water to prevent frost damage). There is a drain plug under the camper in mine an autosleepeer Nuevo. It`s a blue tap to the driver`s side mid way down the waste tank, should also have a drain. If your camper is not heated over the winter all water must be drained. One year the water in the shower hose turned to ice but it did no damage. Hope this is of some help noel from Ireland

I have the same in my car but it come and goes. If you're sure that it's the main reason then you should look for a second hand part. It'll be cheaper. Mourad from Australia

My son`s car recently ran out of fuel. We have bled the pump. The car starts and runs OK but lacks power and feels like it has got a really bad miss. Any idea what this could be? Thanks.
