Peugeot 308 SW 2008

My Peugeot 308 SW`s seatbelt warning alarm keeps going off even when noone is sitting in the seats. This only happens with the three seats in the back of the car. If I have every seat occupied and everyone fastened in it also does it then. Any ideas why?

Answers

Did you find any resolution to this problem? Have exactly the same problem myself and garage can’t come up with a diagnosis or solution... It’s driving us crazy... Lesley G from Ayrshire

I also have this problem on my 308SW. First happened about 3 months ago - hardly ever use the rear seats - and no one sitting in the rear at the time. First one sensor went off - to stop I fastened seat belt and it was fine then after a couple of days the next sensor started giving problems ended up fastening all the seat belts. Then after week or so they started to go off again even with the belts fastened. After removing the seats and putting them back in to see if this cleared the problem booked the car in for a diagnostics check but before putting in I had to unfasten all the belts and amazingly all was fine so cancelled the diagnostics. OK for over a month then started up again. Currently I have two belts fastened and one not and have again got the car booked in. Extemely annoying fault. Did you get a solution?. What’s the problem and how do I fix it? (1.7cdti) Graham Tennant from Renfrewshire

Rear seat belt problem drove me mad as there seemed to be no rhyme nor reason for the alarm to keep going off. After a month of it with no ideas from various garages I took out the middle row of seats pulled up the carpet and disconnected the sensors from the wiring loom. Trouble is I can hear the wife nagging again now!! Jason from Lincolnshire

Mine started doing this today (20/2/13). If you take the seats out, detach the plastic trim from in front of, and behind the seats, and lift out the carpet panel, you will see a black plastic strip with a connector at the near side end. Disconnect the plug to disable the system. It’s less frustrating to disable the system and check any passenger’s have done up their seat belts then to try and sort out a random problem that I doubt will show up in a diagnostic check and will probably be expensive to repair. I suspect the fault is where the plug connects to the flexible PCM in the plastic ’strip’ rather than the wiring... Laurence from Dorset

My Peugeot garage had the car when the alarm was being issued, but said they couldn’t find the fault! All three seats started alarming yesterday (05/03/13) even though the seat belts were connected. Garage can’t book my car in till next week - and when I asked them to disable the alarm in the meantime, they said they couldn’t. Something to do with Europe regulations. Anyway, thanks to this helpful post I have now successfully disabled the alarm. Note - you only have to take off the front plastic strip - and to do so you just need a small screwdriver to release the clips over the metal bar. If Peugeot find the real reason for the problem, I will post here too. THANK YOU! Tony from Sussex

I have had the intermittent seat belt fault with 2 of the three rear seats in my 308 SW. After two visits to the Peugeot garage (first time said they couldn’t find anything wrong) they now say it needs a seat belt pickup, apparently a bar with sensors and transmitters, fitted. The quoted price £128. Asked if they could disconnect and they said no as may cause other faults. After reading this I will be disconnecting it myself. There is no guarantee that after being replaced the same fault won’t develop! Rather not waste my money CLC from England

I wish I had read this forum before I booked my car in - it is now in the garage for the 4th time. I have paid to have one seat belt stalk replaced (and labour!). Then it was reccomended that I replaced the ariel base unit (after the garage spoke with Peugeot in France). I also did this. I’m over £300 out of pocket and it hasn’t resolved the problem. The seat belts alarmed the day after I got the ariel base unit fited and now the seats don’t alarm when my passengers don’t put their seat belts on. So frustrating... Diane Hedlund from Mid-Lothian (Edinburghshire)

My wife has this problem with her Peugeot 308 SW, the rear seat belt alarms keep going off. I have read the above posts but cannot find the correct plastic trim to remove? Could some one please a little clearer and explain how to locate and remove this trim to get at the connector? Mark Smith from Berkshire

Thank you so much for your answers, this problem has been driving me mad. On my 308 under the nearside rear seat, lift the carpet, remove plastic cover and slide the connection apart. No alarms, but peace at last. Well done all. Norm from Sussex

Had the same problem. Warning light stayed on along with the very loud alarm beeping even if nobody was sat in the seat. Tried taking the seats out as some have suggested and it made no difference. Took the car to my local garage. Using WD 40 with the plastic arm attached to the canister, the mechanic sprayed a liberal amount into the offending seat belt connector. He then clicked the seat belt in out a number of times and then the warning light went off. So far no alarm either. He then did the same for each seat belt just to be sure. He thinks the fault is caused by poor seat belt connector contacts. I’m assuming it’s my kids dropping god knows what food/liquid into the seat belt connectors. If any of you have kids/messy people, it might be worth a go. Hope this helps Chris from Caerphilly

Thank goodness for this web-site my rear seat belt alarms have been driving me and everyone else in the car nuts for months now. I have tried the seats up, down in and out of the car I shall try all the options mentioned here and keep my fingers crossed. Paul from Suffolk

At last, I found somebody else who suffers from this crazy faulty beeping in Peugeot 308 SW’s. I live in Turkey and have one 2009 model 308 SW, it was very good, in the beginning, but then suddenly it started beeping randomly. It is very same problem I have, one of the rear seat belt alarms goes off even when nobody sits on it. I asked this stupid problem many times to local service stations around, but no solution came out. But what I have really realised is this problem goes off when the weather is particularly wet or rainy as well as during a couple of days after it rained or snowed, in my opinion. For example in summer when the climate is relatively dry there is no such problem ever. But especially in winter it goes crazy. I think it is really connected to the humidity level at medium. I am really curious about your experiences in summer and winter - has anybody noticed this difference yet? Enbiya Türedi from Turkey

I had exactly the same problem with the intermittent rear belt alarm going off on my Peugeot 308 SW. The alarm was completely random and would sound with/without someone in the seats and with/without belts. As I commute every day this was doing my nut. After various failed fixes I read this thread and I followed Tony's advice and removed the three rear seats; popped out the plastic clips over the metal bar with a screwdriver; took the carpet up; located sensor connection on nearside (ie. passenger side) and disconnected it. I put the carpet back down, clips on, seats back and sanity restored, for free!Iain from City of Edinburgh

Finally, others with the same problem as me! This has been happening with my Peugeot 308 SW for over a year now. It has been in the garage 4 times. (Thankfully Peugeot paid for last 3 visits). We have been without the bleeping for a few months but lo and behold, it has started again! I have always said it's the rubbish seat belt connectors so will definitely be trying the WD40 trick or failing that disconnecting the lot. I was told by the garage that if it is disconnected the car may fail its MOT, but I think I'll just reconnect it before the test! Such a stupid problem for quite a decent car! Rachel from Cornwall

Same problem, intermittent over the summer, now constant, different seat every time, seats in or out. Quoted £54 for a diagnostic (even if they find nothing) the kids are in isofix with their own seat belts. Thanks to Jason, 5 mins pulled the plug silence! 1811 from South Yorkshire

i solved the seat belt alarm on my peugeot 308 SW. The problem started when i puted a rubber car mat over my original peugeot carrpet mats. THE SOLUTION: i removed the carpet mats and ussed just the rubber mats. Probably the seat belt sensor is not buit-in the seats and it is under the mats Stefan Sirbescu from Romania

Could you please give more details on where the connector is placed? Maybe some pictures? I removed the seats, took out the six plastic clips and removed the plastic trim. There seems to be 2 sets of cables? One black and the other is made of mulicoloured wires. One of the cables ends into a hole on the cars metal frame ( right side - behind passenger seat) - the hole is covered by a rubber gasket- is this the one? It seemed that both wires went to the side if the car - Must I remove the side plastic trim aswell - or is the connector on the floor? Please give me some advise as the alarm goes off randomly - The guy at the peugeot garage said they did'nt find anything when they ran diagnostics on the car - It's probably because you're using child seats - he said. So we bought a family car which is not suitable for child seats? - stupid answer Pablo Cortez from Norway

I have had this problem for quite a long time as well and seem to have found a solution to our problem! I removed the sensor bar from under the rear seats and had a close look at it and it was covered in condensation. I put on the front room radiator for a week because its the biggest to dry it out and then refitted it that was in March it is now the end of May and no spurious alarm soundings. Removing the sensor bar is a easy job, remove the rear / middle row seats. Where the front of the seats clip onto the metal pivot points there are small plastic clips which can be removed with a small screw driver. Then pull back the carpet to reveal the sensor bar which is held to floor with 3 plastic clip like things about 2 inches in diameter. The connector is at the nearside (left) of the car under the polystyrene trim and this is just unclipped from the loom. Presto removed. Now the problem is how to prevent the condensation returning I am reluctant to spray with WD40 in case it messes with the electronics on the circuit board. Any help with this would be great as I'm not an electronics expert. The large round rubber grommet is an access to the top of the fuel tank and fuel pump and sender unit.

Just a tip regards the Issue of the Seat Belt Alarm going off, Switching this device off In my opinion is just the sort of thing that your Insurance would pick up on if an accident happened, the way I would go to solve this issue, contact Peugeot UK with your VIN Number & state that no matter what Peugeot agent / dealer you go to, they can not solve the problem, in my opinion this issue should be of concern to Peugeot & with the amount of complaints, they should put this right FOC.

Hello, I'm having issues with my brakes, it started out as when I slowed to while turning left the pedal would not go down, I would have to release and push again and you could hear a grinding noise, it then started doing this if I was turning right. It happen today when I was trying to break in a straight line, and I was pressing and releasing and trying to press the break peddle again but it took a lot of effort and to be honest I was quite scared. Sometimes my abs fault light comes on but rarely, this sometimes cause a wheel spin if pulling away the light will go off and no problems. I've changed all the brake disks and pads!

When I put the car in gear and let the clutch pedal out nothing happens, do you have any idea if it's the clutch or something else ? I was told the clutch was changed less than 6 months ago.

Answers

Find out if the clutch was changed / where and do you have proof? First check the clutch reservoir for fluid, if that's okay check around the clutch servo, is it wet? (clutch fluid loss). Depending on the driver and how they use their left leg (resting on the clutch pedal), this can burn out a new clutch. If you have checked all the rest, contact the garage that changed the clutch.

I have recently purchased a Peugeot 207. The car drove beautifully and had no issues for about a week. However since yesterday, everytime I turn the ignition I get a loud beeping noise that sounds like an internal alarm going off. There are no warning lights or error messages on the screen and this is not the seat belt alarm. The alarm sounds even if the radio is turned on or off and lasts for around 10 seconds. As soon as you start driving the noise stops and everything returns to normal. However, when you pull up, turn the ignition off and remove the key the alarm/noise sounds again and lasts for another 10 seconds. Has anyone else experienced this? If so how did you resolve the issue and what is causing it?

Lasts for about 5-10 seconds then fine again. I travel approx 250 miles per week. Problem occurs intermittently. Been into Peugeot dealership 6 times since jan, they've done a download but that hasn't worked and as fault isn't showing up on their diagnostics then they say they can't do anything. Warranty ran out yesterday! Anybody have the same problem or any advice.

Had this problem on my Citroen C4, (same engine). I found that a combination of 2 things helped to eliminate it. Firstly injector cleaner and secondly an EGR valve intake cleaning, made a huge difference....and massively improved mpg.Pete L from Ireland

Can anyone kindly tell me how to remove the rear light casing please?

Answers

Open the boot and remove the plastic casing above the light cluster. You should then see 2 bolts which need to be removed. Slowly but forcefully pull the light unit towards you. Shash from Greater London

Recently purchased off my mate who has advised there is a leak. Water is lwaking from "somewhere" the question is where and how i can fix it?? Water is going only into the passanger footwell and only occurs when car is washed or heavy rainfall. My mate has advised that the radiator has been changed but problem still persists. I have taken to ATS and been advised could be the windscreen. Has anyone had this issue and can u help?? Thanks

Answers

I had water in the nearside footwell, My 406 had roof opening, the problem of water was caused by the draining tube getting blocked by leaves and debris. A length of suitable wire enabled me to push the blockage out. In my case a piece of welding rod. chas clayton from Hampshire

Hi I picked up my 207 57 plate yesterday however, when coming to starting my car I turn the key and cuts out straight away. When I put my foot on the accelarotar and turn the key it's starts. I called the garage and they advised thats how i start the car up. Now I'm no mechanic but even I know that this is not how you start a car. I have booked it back into the garage for the morning however, just wanted some thoughts as to what the problem might be? The car was fully serviced and MOT yesterday therefore, spark plugs have been changed. Thanks

Hi The problem is solved :-) it took 3 visits to the garage and a visit to Pegeout. After changing the mapping sensor which seemed to solve the problem for 2 days the same issue remained.

I have a Renault Megane Expression DCi 106, Registration number HK59EZC. My problem is, when I open the Hatchback door after a storm it tips water into the car, it looks like it comes in by the back glass. My car has only 60,000 miles on the clock but I have no idea if it has been a problem from new as I have only had the car for just over a year. I'm told that Renault understand the problem and will see to it free of charge, how do I go about having them do this? I am very pleased with my car and have had 72 miles to the gallon on the M1, but in winter around town it is hard to get to 40 miles to the gallon.. w.m.mason from Nottinghamshire

Peugeot 207 CC 2009

The outside temperature is generally mid 25. The temperature gauge in the digital display of my Peugeot 207 CC intermittently, (not permanently), goes to minus and moves alll over the show. When this happens the aircon blows hot air / doesn`t work. The display also comes up with an error message - risk of ice! Is this a faulty theromstat and where it is located?

Answers

Sounds like the thermostat needs replacing... I have bought the 2009 207cc, mine keeps flashing in the console , but not what yours is doing a j from England

Hi Craig, I had exactly the same problem that you are facing, it took me months to solve it, at the end it was simple. The wire that connects from the passenger side door, all the way under the mirror in your case, is likely to be broken. Not the sensor. I had to change the sensor twice before the geniuses in Peugeot found out that was just the wire that was broken from inside. (After I showed them where it was misconnecting) They simply cut the wire from the mirror to the dashboard, past the door brackets and replaced them with a new one. Then welded and melted some rubber to cover the copper wiring, a really nice job since I thought they would just cover it with tape... To give you a hint if the wire is really broken, squeeze/shake the wire tubing that passes the wires from the dashboard to the door. If that is the problem, the temperature sensor doesn’t need to be changed, just the wire from the sensor. Cheers! Victor Carneiro from Brazil

i just had this dumb problems fix for good, for months even after i change the sensor at the mirror the problems of erractic temperture keeps coming back. today my mech took the bunch of socket out between door and the car body spray some contact cleaner and blow off any access with the pressure blower for abt 15 sec ......wah lah all back to normal , this require some additional hands as the door is quite heavy.

Has anyone experienced problems with the roof when just out of warranty? Mine has jammed, and needed a manual boot/roof fold down action, which was very complicated and took the RAC man several hours. Looks like one of the motors for the roof mechanism may have broken.

Answers

Can also be caused by the two switches that sense that the boot cover is in place are jammed/broken. Check these out with a multimeter Jon from Rhondda Cynon Taff

I had problems with my roof, took to a dealer and got told need to have back glass removed etc etc long expensive job!!!! Turns out the cable had come off which controls something to do with the sensors. Cost me £80. I am so glad. I found a guy whom has set up on his own after working for Peugeot Donna from Essex

I have a Peugeot 3008 and the eco lights flash when standing at traffic lights but it does not turn the eco on. Why is this please?

Answers

I only got my 2013 - 3008 e-hdi last week. Reading through the manual the ECO light will flash to let you know the engine will carry on running, according to the manual this could be for a number of reasons. I have found once the car has been for a run and the engine has warmed up the function automatically reinstates itself, thinking about it it makes sense, when you first use your car the load must be high with with all the electrics on etc. Ade from Portsmouth

I have exactly the same problem with my Peugeot 3008. When I first picked it up it was fine, I drive with no heating or radio and it flickers but doesn't go into eco mode. I was wondering if it meant the battery was getting low. I have driven it for over 60 miles so engine was warm but still no eco mode. I would appreciate it if you find any further info.

Hi James since my last comment I have found out the problem. I noticed that I was getting an error on engine management , it only last for seconds so if you blink you will miss it. This only happened the once. I took it back to garage as still under warranty, they saw the fault but could not identify it. So they cleared all faults. 19 days later it happened again so I took it back and they said it would have to go to main dealer. Vospers in Plymouth the Peugeot dealer said the code was relating to the battery. On the ECO cars there is a main battery and like a reserve battery for ECO this voltage was down so I had a new battery last Friday. Now the Eco mode works all the time. Beware the battery cost came to just under a grand !!!! Luckily mine is still in warranty. I knew it wasn't right after a week of having the car so for your peace of mind check it out. I have the error codes if you need them. Hope this helps. Lisa Collins from Plymouth

Thanks Lisa. That's answered my question . Will get ours booked in while under warranty. Lyn Jonez from West Midlands

Hi Lyn Glad I could help. They gave mine a health check which I think is about £40-45, this picked up the problem as well. If you need the error codes or part numbers let me know. I have spoken to a lot of people who have said the ECO doesn't work and they have put it down to the list that Peugeot give you of all the things that must be in place , outside temp, inside temp, radio on, heater on etc . I knew it wasn't right so glad I got it checked. Good Luck ! Lisa Collins from Plymouth
