I have a damp problem in the nearside front footwell and cannot find where the water is coming from. The carpet gets wet even when the car is standing and it rains. Can anyone help please

Answers

I had this problem and was advised it was a fault with the heater matrix. It would be water from the cooling system that is entering the footwell. KevM from Cardiff

Peugeot 308

The stereo/sat nav seems to have given up. For no apparent reason it suddenly ejected the cd and since then the ejection mechanism keeps working about every 20 seconds. Every thing else is now 'dead'. Also, the mile-ometer has reverted to KPH and I can't seem to change it. Any ideas?

Hi Peter,I was wondering if you have got your radio sorted out,,as mine is doing the same thing.if so could you please let me know how to do it Many thanks Peter Davies Peter Davies from Merseyside

Hello Peter Golden My 308 does exactly the same as you describe but Peugeot dealership say they have never heard of these problems before. Car is 1 year out of warranty so I am being quoted £1300 for a new unit. I have been on to Peugeot customers care with no luck. Totally disgusted and will never buy a Peugeot again.

Peugeot 206 CC 2004

My Peugeot 206 CC has a light on the dash saying that the passenger`s airbag is not working and has had this on for years. Just recently a beeping noise has started when I start moving the car. What is it and how do I disconnect it? Thanks so much.

Answers

I have the same problem but the air bag light has now gone off and the beeping noise is there whenever I am travelling. When I stop at lights or slow to nearly stop it stops then when I go the beep continues. It’s like a warning. Checked airbag and no faults show up using a computer but it still carries on. I could do with a answer as well John Bradley from Lancashire

I cleared this fault by using the ignition key to turn passenger air bag to off position and back to on position without removing key. Maybe it cleaned or remade a circuit Bill Turbutt from Herefordshire

Hi, I have had the same problem. Bear in mind the electronics are under the seats. Sometimes my air bag lights come on if I move the seats so I just play around with them and they usually go off. If still having problem take it to an auto-electrician, its cheaper than Peugeot Simone Sanders from England

Hi, I have an rather annoying beeping when I drive my 206 CC over 5 kms. My Airbag lights have been on for some time but I was not concerned with this. Took my car to an auto-electrican (4 times) they maintained I needed new wiring! The beeping had started a year after purchasing and after I had a reversing camera installed. Instead of purchasing the new wire which would have cost $1000.00, I negotiated the option of resoldering the wire, this however was not sucessful, as the beeping continued. I have just taken my car to another garage who informed me to complete a diagnostic test and fix the beeping issue they would require having the car for 3-4 hours! At $140 plus GST I am relunctant to spend both the time and expense. Needless to say, the air bag light is off ;-) Apparently because I had mistakenly placed my jumper leads under the passenger seat, I had triggered a microswitch which resulted in the airbag light going on my dash board. You may want to investigate this? I googled microswitches for a Peugeot 206 on Google and a diagram comes up displaying where all the microswitches are located. I will investigate whether these can easily be replaced in the boot and on the roof to help eliminate the beeping. Good luck with your air bag dash board light warning.

Peugeot 308

At 75,000 miles my 2008 Peugeot 308 (petrol, automatic) has just shown 'Error: Faulty Antipollution' message while I was driving. Even with the message on, the car continued to run normally but the engine management symbol (light) stayed on. What do I do?! Thanks in advance.

Answers

Hi, this is a common fault, if you google the error you will find many horror stories of people paying a load of money to try and fix the problem and also lots of helpful tips. This error has appeared on my 308 (2008 Reg) twice in the last 2 years, with now being the 2nd time, and is currently in the garage waiting for a new turbo sensor - what ever that is! NB If your car is feeling sluggish and you feel like you are at times towing a caravan then please be careful as you may eventually just lose power completely. I could drive with this error fault for a couple of months and then out of the blue my car just stopped on the motorway at 11p.m.! The 1st time it appeared I asked my local garage, who did not have a diagnostic device, to change the oil filters in case there was dirt from the diesel clogging up the flow of fuel and this solved the problem... yeah!!. However, this time, after using a diagnostic device my car allowed the mechanic to clear the fault and reset itself, the car was taken out for a test drive and no fault appeared. However, after letting the car sit for 3 hours another test drive was done and a different error has now appeared to the cost of £130 just for the new senor! So good luck and just take it to a good diesel garage or a Peugeot dealer. Shirley Gunn from Cheshire

Peugeot Expert

2008 expert professional, with 257,000 miles, regularly serviced every 10,000 miles. Driving the other day, van went into " slow / limp" mode, I was doing 60 mph@2000 rpm, when I tried to accelerate, there was no response, but it still plodded long, I pulled up and van cut out and wouldn't start..Its having starting issues, according to diagnostics, everything is fine, no broken sensors and everything appears to be working ok, am getting a good fuel flow and good pressure when ignition switched on. Running through diagnostics it's communicating and can see live information when trying to start. Getting round 150 bar when ingintion is turned on, when tiring to start the pressure drops, which indicates to me that the pressure / dump / return value ( what ever the correct terminology is ) is getting a signal saying that it's full / too much fuel... But with diagnostics it's still saying everything is fine... Have tried new pump, egr value, sensors etc...... I'm getting NO fault codes or waning lights, I'm erring towards an electical issue, has anyone experienced anything like this that could point me in the right direction.

Answers

Has your vehicle got diesel particulate filter fitted (DPF) ? If so it sounds as if it has operated and needs resetting. When it gets clogged it puts vehicle into limp mode. It can be cleared if it is still running by putting it in a low gear and driving at high revs, the extra heat generated burns off the soot and generally solves the problem other wise it is a garage job. stan coldron from South Yorkshire

Hi, approximately 3-4 times out of 10 when I pull off from stationery the gears judder making the whole car judder for a second or 2. This is really frustrating and embarrassing when I have friends in the car with me. Does anyone know what this could be? Is it something that anyone has had fixed by Peugeot? I love my car but this one thing is making me think about using a different car manufacturer when I renew later this year. many thanks.

Answers

This is happening to me. I keep thinking my car is about to stall, even though it is an automatic. I've only had it 5 months but it's still under Peugout 3 year warranty. It's at the peugeot garage now and they tell me it could be the gearbox or it could be wear and tear. It's only 2.5 years old, how could it be wear and tear? Which of course isn't covered by the warranty. Surely it's the gearbox, which is covered by warranty. Surely...I love my car too, but I have a feeling that this is a problem that will only get worse.

Problems with the ECO Stop/Start. If I charge up the battery the stop start works perfectly until I drive on a wet day with lights and wipers on, which is understandable, but after that it never works again even after long (26 Mile) journeys. The garage is trying to blame "my style of driving" and that I don't do long journeys but it doesn't mention anything about that in the handbook. Is anyone else having problems with the stop/start?

Answers

I have the same problem, car is just over a year old. Did a journey of 200 miles and still the stop start does not work. I think the Battery must be on its way out peugeot main dealer says not, and we just don't do enough mileage. I'm not convinced., anyone else know what to do. Rob from Kent

My Peugeot 407 has an ABS + Esp warning on the dashboard. According to the manual this won’t affect the brakes. Any ideas?

Answers

Yes, it will have it seen to. The most common fault is the clutch switch or the break sensor. Both quite cheap to repair Anton Pug from South Africa

Have a diagnostic check done in most cases it’s normally a damaged or failed abs sensor lead but theres 1 sensor fitted to each wheel so best to find out which one has failed and replace one instead of all 4 Terry Miller from Cardiff

I have the same problem on mine, the diagnostic check came up with a faulty pre heat control unit, still trying to find out if this is correct and where it is on my car Kevin Firth from Powys

It will NOT affect your braking performance, I had exactly the same problem for months and brakes were as sharp as ever. The fault was with the ABS sensor which is coupled with the ESP. You need to get sensor replaced, mine cost a few hundred pounds (sterling). If either of these lights are on during an MOT it is an instant failure Steve M from Neath Port Talbot

mine had the same problem. get a diagnostic check and that will tell you which ABS sensor is faulty. mine was one of the front ones, i bought a brand new one from Euro car parts for £22 +vat. easy to fit problem solved. Jason Catterall from England

Had abs/esp light come up intermittently, car went into garage nff, also repeated brake light bulb fail coming up, after spending several days trying to find the fault, in desperation I decided to check the wiring from the foot pedal, removed the pedal switch , opened it up to find the contacts carbonised, a quick soaking in a cup of cokacola and hey presto!, 18months later all is working fine still!! chris b from Switzerland

Our ESP code coming up on start up. Got car to MOT test centre. Our car has been laid up for 18 months and being put back on the road. The battery has gone flat whilst standing. We've changed the ESP/ABS sensor on the wheel that had some grinding done to it to get the old brake disc off and read about the ESP sensor being magnetic so we decided to clean that. As we removed it it was stuck solid and the only way of getting it out was breaking it and cleaning the whole out. So a new sensor bought and placed in, still ESP/ABS code coming up. Car gone to garage for MOT today and mechanic asked 'has the car been sitting with a flat battery for a while - if so yes, often brings up error code for ESP not working'. So hopefully that has it reset and fixed for us and hopefully the car has one through the MOT. x Jan Noble from South Lanarkshire

My car suddenly became very slow to go up hills and if you went down into first gear it would suddenly come to life and fly up the hill, then suddenly it developed a ticking noise. I took it to the local Peugeot dealer who said they were waiting for a took to take the top of the engine off, they had it three weeks and nothing was done. So my local garage went and collected it but say they cannot find where the fault is. At first they thought it was the timing chain, but found it wasn't that, they say it could be the Sensors, Variable Valve timing sprockets or Variable Valve control sprockets but will have to replace each thing individually to find out what it is. They cannot run the engine with the rocket off as theinlet gas covers the rocket cover. Im not sure what all this means, have you any idea what could be the problem?

When the lighting reaches the level of brightness required, release the button. Deactivation.

Peugeot 206 CC 2003

My Peugeot 206 CC`s boot sensor keeps beeping and the roof won`t open. Any suggestions?

Answers

Is the slide blind in the boot in position? Or try driving the car to another position because it stops working after a few goes if the car is in the same spot Kati Navar from England

You might be missing one of the steps to open the roof. Better check the user’s manual. If the boot slide blind is not open, all four windows are not open, or the roof locks are not open, or doors are not closed, or the hydrolic switch is loose. Normally that switch is used to operate the roof manually. Hope it helps you  Nadeem Ahmad from South Africa

Hi, not sure if you have sorted this but I had the same problem. All it was was the boot catch was locked. I moved the catch with a screwdriver and it has worked ever since. Hope it helps Hayley Smith from Scotland

If the boot sensor is beeping, it would suggest that the boot switch is broken or may have fallen off. Naturally if the car thinks the boot is open, then the roof will not operate Chris from Caerphilly

Hey, I’ve had the same problem 3 times now, it was 160 to fix in the Peugeot garage and the other times I’ve used a screwdriver. Simply it is the sensor. There really sensitive and if anything in the boot bumps it.... it’s unaligned and just beeps. Go into your boot, to your left hand side the roller shelf fits into a clip. The metal piece is a sensor. I’ve had to bend it in order for it to work now. Lol good luck Nat King from Renfrewshire

I had this problem and it was the control unit in the boot its located at the left hand side as you look into the boot at the back where the roof hinges. I got one from ebay for around £20 PEUGEOT 206 CC ROOF CONTROL UNIT ECU TEXTON 9644337080. Price from Peugeot £400 + VAT Claire from Devon

I had the same problem and fixed it the same way as nat King, I've bent the sensor down now and works every time. Hazel from Essex

This may be a red herring as we've had problems with the roof being stuck down. First time it was cured by slamming the boot, didn't work second time but there is a micro switch under the boot latch in the middle of the rear of the boot, which operates the courtesy light. I think it may also act as the sensor for the boot being closed. the switch 'opens' when the boot is closed, so I flicked it up and down a few times making the light in the book go on and off. Shut the boot and the roof is cworking OK again. So check that the boot light on the LHS is working and going off by carefully moving the small metal 'leaf' under the latch up and down with a screwdriver. Hope this helps.

Hi the roof for my 206 cc is not working. I followed this steps - boot empty - back screen on - hooks unlocked -hand break on In the book says that first the windows will open and then the roof. All I gel is just beeping, windows stuck so the roof. However the windows are working fine if I want to open or close them during the drive. What can I do? Many thanks Roxana Roxana Laura Dragan from Worcestershire

We've just had the same problem, looked on this site and got the answer, the sensor in the boot, the little metal clip that the cover fits into, we just fiddled with it!! Now working fine. Thank you all so much Carolyne from Devon

Peugeot 307 CC 2005

Hi, can anyone help? I have a Peugeot 307 CC with the antipollution light on and when the engine is warm it feels sluggish and chugging . It feels like it`s not firing on all cylinders. What should I do?

Answers

Check for blocked exhaust or faulty catalytic convertor or 02 sensor (so long as 98 grade fuel is being used) Paul Andrews from Australia

I’ve got a 307cc and have had this problem from the very day I bought it. Only by reading up on the internet about the 307cc Anti Pollution Fault, did I realize there are thousands of 307cc owners who have the same problem. Peugeot refuses to accept this problem and it costs at least gbp 75 by Peugeot to put it on an electronic instrument to have it tested "result - no problem". Just to find it happens again. So... I went to the garage, put the best petrol in my car and have never had this problem again, until just recently, when I put the normal leaded petrol in... Now my 307cc is sitting in the garage trying to be repaired. Advice; Put the best petrol in.... then there should be no problems... Or just sell it Lynda Seehaus from England

I’ve had the problem for the last 3 years. After reading on the internet, changed to the Super Unleaded petrol. Drove without a problem for the last year. 3 days ago, the Anti Pollution Fault reappeared... Had to have the car towed to the garage. Electronic reading was completed, with "9" faults... According to the garage, its now the "Throttle"... Its a beautiful car, but I think its time to part. Even Peugeot won’t admit there is a problem with the ´"Anti Pollution "... they say there is nothing wrong. Try changing to the best petrol.. but it can be lots of reasons...usually something to do with the mixture of petrol and air.... Lynda Seehaus from Wiltshire

Had the same prob with my 307cc 2ltr. Do not take to dealer, they will rob you and give you you a load of bull. The cause is the reading between the exhaust sensors caused by incomplete combustion. Carefully remove the injector rail you will get a small amount of fuel shoot as you release the fuel pipes, put a circuit tester on each injector to test for open circuit my fault was a faulty injector, got one from my local breaker yard, £25 problem solved. At the same time change the spark plugs as I did. The ecu will reset itself overnight, if not disconnect battery, leave overnight like I did and it resets itself. Hope this helps Terry from Nottinghamshire

My 307cc 1.6 petrol ran like a kangaroo jumping and spluttering. Got the old AA out and he hooked it up to his computer, turned out to be the coil. New coil new plugs touch wood runs like a Ferrari. He even cleared the codes for me, cost me nowt. Bought coil and plugs from local spares shop. Even put some Catclean in for good measure. Wayne from South Yorkshire

I had this problem on my 307 xsi had the diagnostics done and it was injector number 3 fault. The thing lots of people don't know on most cars you count the injector ports from the cam belt end on the Peugeots it is back to front so if your mechanic isn't that clued up on Peugeots he will change injector 2 and hence you still have the problem this was a mistake I made and after much research I found the problem and now my pug is running like a dream. Hope this helps M Hollis from Oxfordshire

Had the same problem with our 307cc. Put new spark plugs in, ran for a few miles, still no good. When I removed the plugs again I noticed that no3 cylinder plug (counting from the right) was different to the others. Looking at these replies I thought could be injector. When I unplugged the injector it made no difference to the tick over so I bought a new one and replaced it - easy job really - just take your time doing it Result - runs fine now. You can reset the anti pollution light by starting and stopping the engine 4 times - removed the key each time. Richyrich from Northamptonshire

Just to give you another thing to check - my '08 1.6 estate had the same problem, replaced the coil pack and it ran fine for 3 days before the fault came back. After a week and 3 different people head scratching, it was noted that there was damage to the part of the wiring loom that is plugged in to the coil pack. It appears to have been rubbing against the air box. The section of loom is available (£200+), but my mechanic carried out a 'temporary repair' to it. The auto electrician who I got to check it said it was perfectly sound. Not sure if mine was a one-off, or if there may be a common problem with the location or length of this part of the loom?

Hi! I had similar problems on one occasion. Even windows where not closing properly. With the engine running, test if you are getting 17 volts at the battery. I replace the alternator and everything went back to normal. Regards, Addison from Swindon

Thank you Jcb

Answers

Modern vehicles don't like lengthy periods of inactivity,ideally you should take them out for a spin every month. As for your problems try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes then reconnecting it, this often resets the ECU. I suggest this because your 3 problems aren't usually connected in any way other than through the ECU (although you might actually have 3 separate faults). Mick from Portugal

Linda I have an elddis based on the boxer that has the exact same symptoms, also the brake fluid/ handbrake light came on as well. The local garage have not managed to sort it so it looks like a trip to the main dealers - did you get a fix on yours? John T from Gloucestershire

Answer this question

George Matthews, Essex

Peugeot 207

Power steering motor replaced on 14/3/2017 by local main dealer following sudden and total failure of power steering overnight on driveway. No charge thanks to goodwill gesture by Peugeot. I live in a cul de sac and have a short driveway on a slight slope so on starting I have to immediately turn the steering wheel clockwise using effort. It is noticeable on most occasions recently that after releasing the steering lock the wheel is briefly stiff to operate as if there is an absence of power steering. I remember this occurring sometimes prior to the motor failure and put it down to the steering lock. I am concerned about this situation and would appreciate feedback.

Answers

If you are turning the steering wheel while the vehicle is still stationary you are placing excessive load on the system. Make sure you are travelling, even very slowly before you turn the wheel. Hugh from City of Glasgow
