Peugeot Boxer

I have a 2016 Elddis motorhome fitted with a factory alarm. All has been fine until today when I went inside the van via the passenger cab door.. I started the engine to top up the battery all fine. When locked the van up the alarm set as normal but went off after about 30 secs. This now happens each time I lock the van. The blue alarm light starts flashing after a few seconds - 3 quick flashes in succession, followed by a short interval & then flashes 3 again - this repeats until the alarm goes off. I have checked all doors & bonnet are closed. Any ideas?

Answers

2016 = still under warranty.. take it back to dealer.. besides, you ought to get it seen by someone who knows how the alarm is fitted, not how the vehicle works R Evans from Caerphilly

Peugeot 308 SW 2009

My Peugeot 308 SW had a STOP brake failure -ABS and ESP system failure messages. I visited a Peugeot specialist who had the ABS unit sent for testing but no fault found. He then tried replacing the under bonnet fuse box (apparently also a controller), but all this to no avail. He also tested wiring etc. I have had all original parts refitted and obviously still have the fault. I would welcome any info as to what could be the fault. Can anyone help?

Answers

Nice to know I’m not the only one who has this problem. I don’t have an answer but my 308SW Sport 1.6HDi (09 plate) has been doing this for some time. Local Dealer had it in a couple of times, once for a week, but couldn’t find fault - said it may be something to do with the battery level, but this was clutching a straws a bit I think. Surely something else would show up first before the ABS/ESP warning lights and a ’Brake System Failure’ message keeps appearing!! Dealer has said there is nothing wrong with the brakes and they will still work, but it is still worrying that the warning keeps coming up, especially for unsuspecting passengers. Something must be causing it. I’ve also started to get a strange smell through the ventilation system, AC on or off and re-circulation switched on or off. It does have an over heated brake smell to it, and is more promanent when starting the car than when braking. Any ideas? Paul from Dorset

Had a similar problem on my 307SW. Turned out to be the rear wheel hub sensor mounts had become corroded and were sitting too far from the hub. Hub has a magnet that passes the sensor, if the distance becomes too great the sensor fails to detect the magnet passing it and so the fault symptom. Removed sensor and cleaned up corrosion, so that sensor sat virtually touching hub, problem solved. Hope this helps.

Hi folks can anyone shed any light on y my speedo and also my mileadge doesn't work . At all wen van is moving . Thanks guys col .

Answers

I had same problem, the speedo drive is electric on mine, a small rotary gear driven generator is fitted in the top of the differential, held in place with one bolt, if you remove the unit wit the ignition switched on and turn this does the speedo work. ? if so the electrical part is ok, the drive is by 2 plastic gears these are cheap to buy, unfortunately the gear inside the differential is not easy to get to. depending on what transmission is fitted, some have a removable diff carrier than can be removed once the engine is pulled forward and the drive shafts removed. the gear just clips in. you can feel the gear inside if its loose with a small finger.

My wife just bought this 2005 1007 YESTERDAY. We vwere taken for a test drive and the car seemed to run great. We brought it home, parked it and didn't touch it until around 17:00 tonight. I turned on the lights and noticed they were a bit dim. We then drove about eight blocks to the store, went to back into a parking space and it wouldn't go into reverse even though the indicator said it was in gear. I pulled forward and parked, shut down the engine, went in store for no more than 4 minutes, came out and tried to start the vehicle and got " Transmission Gear Failure" "Right Door Failure" Left Door Failure", the "AUTO" light came on along wityh an asterisk. The car wouldn't even try to start! NOTHING! I tried removing the positive cable on the battery to reset the computer. NOTHING. The transmission Indicator Light on the dash pod wouldn't even come on. It would open either the right or left door and then nothing worked ... wouldn't even close the door. PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN. I've never seen anything like this in my entire life and she bought the car "AS SEEN". We can't afford to lose that L1,000 and now I don't know if we can afford to fix it! Thanks in advance.

Hi I got a pegeout 1007 2-tonic 2006 petrol. When I put a reverse gear at a steep slope it doesn't go back but instead goes forward and I control that with a hand brick. And same thing when on gear 1 it goes back before it moves. What could be the problem

Answers

The 2 Tronic gearbox is simply an automated manual gear box using a clutch actuator to operate the clutch and another to change gear. No hydraulic drive or torque converter. When at rest on a slope the car must be held on the handbrake just as in a manual. A design flaw perhaps but not a fault. Neil from Kent

I've paid out quite a bit trying to sort this problem on 58 plate. Only difference with mine is that my car would lose power, the throttle would be to the floor and I'd barely get it above 30mph. Also the cooling fan wouldn't shut off either. After three different mechanics taking a look/changing various parts and telling me that the main brain (computer) is on its way out and would cost £1800-£2500 to replace. I got lucky and found a really good electrical engineer who told me it's not the main computer. He changed the manifold sensor, spark plugs and put a product called Cataclean (can be purchased from Halfords £16) in the fuel tank to clean up the injectors. It is now a day later.. The car (so far) is driving great! The fan is off. There are no warning or engine lights on. All I can do is live in hope that this has sorted the problem. I wish you all the luck.

Either you’ve pressed the ’mute’ button, or there’s a fault in the unit that means it thinks that either the mute button is in operation, or the telephone interface is telling it you are on a call. Most likely cause is a faulty stereo John Greenslade from Powys

I have exactly the same problem since 3 days ago, i ve tried everything, pressing all buttons and even disconnecting the battery for several minutes, and the problem has not disappeared. I think the problem appeared last week when I was into the car connecting the sat nav with my smarthphone, but these two dispositives are external to the car, is not comunication by wire, they connect by bluetooth, and this fact I think has misconfigured the radio, even this radio hasn't got any display about bluetooth.

I have anti pollution fault on dash is it serious

Answers

Cheryl, it's not massively serious but it is something you'll need to get checked out.. the anti pollution system is just that.. part of the emissions process that deals with minimising the harmful gases caused by combustion.... so essentially all you're doing is chucking out more pollutants to the air.. However, you have a fault indicated which means that a message is getting to the ECU from a few possible components which it is not 'happy' with.. It will get a little confused as to how to deal with the message and won't be able to properly adjust fuel air settings, possibly timing issues and others.. in the long term it may (but may not) cause damage so it is advisable to find out what is causing the error. It could be a faulty sensor or component. R Evans from Caerphilly

Having looked in the handbook, I see that it is called F35 although none of the corresponding pictures (in the handbook) shows this particular fuse... and it is difficult to see all the fuse numbers when looking in the fuse box; I did a google search and found that somebody else on this site had previously asked about the same problem... but the reply bears no relation to what I see when I open the fuse box in my 3008, 2011 model. The reply was "In the passenger glove box on the right hand side remove the cover there. There are two fuse containers. A large one containing about twenty fuses and on the right hand side of that there is a column of about 10 fuse holders about 5 are used. 10 amp fuse . It is the top fuse ii red".

As you say, the handbook helpfully (not!) doesn't include a picture for that bank of fuses. It looks like you found the right collection of them though, to one side of the glovebox. When I was searching I just took out each red one in turn and checked them. For me each one was ok though and the problem was something more sinister... (a sensor). Mackie from Lancashire

hi there so today my reversing sensors have developed a fault, it comes up with a message saying parking sensor system faulty on the display above my stereo. i have checked the fuse and that doesn't seem to be the problem. i haven't had any rear end shunts and they seem to be free from debris. can anyone shed any light on this please thanks in advance

Hi, I can't answer your question why your problem maybe happening but I can say I got a 16 plate 3008 Allure on 1st March and I have had nothing but bother with the front and rear parking sensors. It started with an error saying PARKING ASSIST FAULTY. Its had all new parking sensors, front and back, new wiring loom, front and back and a new electronic control unit that controls the parking assist. My dealer has had my car for 14 weeks now and the fault is still NOT fixed. Grant from West Yorkshire

Hi, I had a "parking assist fault" on my 13 plate 3008 just last month. I checked the fuse first too, but it took me a while to find, and when I did it was fine. After that I took out all the sensors individually, cleaned the contacts and re-fitted them. Nothing changed so I eventually bit the bullet and bought one new sensor. I got it off ebay for about £48. (£101 from the dealer!!) I changed the first sensor and the system started working again. Not sure if I was lucky or not, but 2 weeks later it's still working... So just a dodgy wing mirror switch to sort out next! Mackie from Lancashire

Hi I have a 2006, 407HDI 136bhp SW model and have been given 7 litres of commercial 'add blue' to top up my de-pollution system. Does anyone know if lorry 'add blue' is ok for this vehicle? Thanks in advance Tony

Answers

This might destroy your engine! I have a 2007 2.0hdi 407. Mine does not take Add blue. It takes Pat fluid. Addblue and Patfluid (Eloy oil) are 2 different things. Addblue gets injected into the diesel particulate filter (its 70% water) but Patfluid is injected into the diesel tank Paul Mccartney from Armagh

Hi Folks. Checking the 1996 AS Harmony over prior to my first trip in it and I've just found that the Thereford Cassette toilet is not as described in the AS Owners Manual - it's a C3L instead of the C2. The only difference as far as I can tell is where you fill the flush tank with fresh water. The C2 has a filler which you swing out to fill the tank but mine, the C3L doesn't appear to have such a facility. Can anyone out there please enlighten me as to how I get water to flush the loo. Do I have to fill the main water tank and does the main pump have to be switched on. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading and regards to all. Grahame

Answers

Hi folks. I never thought I'd be able to resolve a problem posted by myself, but I have. I can confirm that the toilet flush for the Thetford C3L Cassette is supplied from the main water tank in the 1996 AS Peugeot Boxer 270S Harmony. Fill the tank, turn on and prime the pump, press the Flush button on the bog, and away you go. Thanks to all who were about to respond. Regards Grahame Grahame from Hampshire
