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

Hi! When you turn the key,try your best to listen to the fuel pump which is under rear seat,in a calm place.If it does not make a sound,I think you must get it replaced.Please check the connections of the fuel pump as well.

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.

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.

Peugeot 306 2001

I`ve just bought a 2001 Peugeot 306 automatic 2 L. When turning off the motor I found that the fan still runs for about 10 minutes. The temperature shows normal about 90c. Why is this? (automatic)

Answers

I had a similar problem with my 1.6 306 and it seemed to be a problem, whilst the indicated temperature would be fine, the fans would run at high speed and keep running for sometime after I had shut down. After a bit of research it seemed it was a problem with the brown temperature sensor; I was going to replace it completely (they are only about 14 quid ($30 AUS) new off eBay) but simply cleaning the old one and giving it a wiggle seems to have solved the problem and I have had no further issues after 6 months. I appreciate that it's probably too late to be of much help but hopefully it will help someone! Pete from Oxfordshire

Peugeot 307 CC 2006

I have a Peugeot 307 CC and the driver`s door window switch for the front passenger window works only intermittently. When it does work the window stops about 5 or 6 times while going up. This has recently started to happen occasionally when putting up the back windows now too. Is this the switch or the motor? (1.6 petrol)

Answers

My window has started to go up and down, the window drops by 10mm. Peugeot have said its the door handle sensor. Hope this helps. Independent garage quote £100 each side. Peugeot £595 OMG! Carol Robson from Lancashire

Inside the door switch is a rubber pad just like a tv remote, This pad stretches, the switches don’t connect or jerk or only go one way. I had to buy a switch of ebay for £75 and it’s working fine. If you buy a switch and the same thing happens it’s the pad, so return it. Good luck. Bob from Angus (Forfarshire)

Definitely the control unit inside the motor ECU. Open the circuit board and see if faulty, get second hand ones and try, they are £280 from Peugeot plus £100 for coding. Jason Stead from Lancashire

I had the same problem, my drivers window got stuck down, and others windows started to ope on their own. turns out it was the switch assembly was wet. I removed the screw holding the assy in and took it all apart carefully making sure not to break any plastic hooks. I found under the rubber pad was all wet. dried the circuit board by dabbing with tissue and the rubber pad buttons. Made sure it was all dry, then put back together. Voila all working again. dave from Greater London

Yes, I had same problem on my Boxer. I took the gear box out and discovered that the slide tube for the release bearing of clutch had come away from the gear box. It is riveted on into a seal for the gear box, not the strongest of things but you need to replace release fork trupet and clutch release bearing, around 50euro I think and the bolt that holds the trupet sleeve are very tight.

Peugeot 307

I have been getting messages of Antipollution fault, Catalytic converter fault and Automatic gear fault every time when driving the car. The car is powerless and consumes petrol like nobody`s business. Now the car is no longer starting and before that it showed a message of battery charge fault four days before it went off. We tried to check the car and found that the pulley tensioner is damaged and the fan belt is not well tensioned. We replaced the pulley, jump started the battery, took out the battery to charge it but still the car doesn't start. A mechanic guy diagnosed the car and a communication error message appeared. He told me to buy a lock set that comes with computer box because the current computer box is dead. So I would like to know if this is true? Between the above mentioned faults which one can damage computer box? What must be done so that the car can start again? Will it help to buy lock set together with computer box?Kindly assist!

Hi there, it looks like your car recorded too many faults and chances are it could have lost its memory. I had similar problem with mine. The solution to the problem is that you replace all the faulty parts, because if you don`t do that it will continue to give problems. Catalytic converter most important and too expensive, don`t forget to check your petrol pump because it can be a source of all the problems. danny from South Ayrshire

Hi! I am far from expert but I had a chance to see those things from closer range. While I was remooving and reinstaling the radio, the same thig hapened to me. It is not very likely but check this. Remove the plastic cover just above the radio. Whith strong fingernails :) or with similar tool. What you can see now is ventilation tube that leads from the sistem to the vents. Remove that as whell. Now you should be able to reach in the back of the radio where all the cables are conected. What you are looking for is potentionaly loose or fall (fell?) of optic cable. If somehow was inserted badly it might loosened during the time and fall out. And when it is out ther is no picture on the screen. It is wery short and best way to conect it is with opened plastic cover and I think you must "unclick" the radio as whell and pull it for few cm (1inch) outward. If you find the loosen cable you must determined the position to click it back in. Try to folow the "sugested" position of the conector which cable formed . If not, disconect all the cables pull the radio out and see how it should be. I belive you need lets say an hour or so. I hope that's it. If it's something else I am not your man.

Peugeot 206

We have recently bought a Peugeot 206 and have some small problems that are annoying and would like to know how to fix them! Problems are as follows: Courtesy Light - the bulb will work when we use the "permanent on" switch, but won't work if we use the "door open" switch and then open the doors. Is this a fuse or a problem with the door connection? CD/Radio - it looks like another radio has been fitted and it will turn itself on when the door is opened if a cd is in and will also start any cd that is in the player from the beginning of the cd. The radio seems to lose its radio settings every time and needs to be retuned to find stations. Has this radio been wired in a strange way or is there a problem with the radio?Are these 2 problems connected in any way? Any ideas to overcome these problems will be gratefully received.

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

Peugeot 207 CC 2008

My wife`s Peugeot 207 CC had a timing chain fault at 18,000 miles, 6 months out of warranty but within an extended warranty period. Peugeot said it was fair wear and tear so not covered. I know Mini have done a recall for a tensioner and chain problem and as it is the same engine I thought Peugeot might do the same. Does anybody have any info about a recall on this engine? Has anybody had a similar problem that Peugeot have accepted responsibility for? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Answers

Hi Mike. I bought my 207 four years ago and have so far spent £1500 on repairs for the catalytic converter failing, and the problem with the anti pollution system. This week the engine has started knocking and my mechanic assures me the timing chain has gone, I have done less than 40,000 miles. Without question it has been the most unreliable and expensive car I have bought, needless to say it’s going and I won’t be having another Peugeot. Customer Support has been rubbish. Good luck Alison Lee from England

This car has a timing belt not a chain, anyway the belt lasts at least 80k - why do you want to change it? Chucri Kayal from France

Same happened to me, really noisy and engine running badly two weeks after purchase, car only 3 years old with low mileage. It was a failed tentioner on timing belt and luckily the garage agreed to have it fixed for me. The cost of the repair was £458 for parts + labour (which I imagine was VERY high as it needed collecting and transporting to garage and then whole engine out of car! Rreally pleased that I bought the extended warrantee!) Roy Wareham from Kent

The same just happened to me on my Peugeot 207CC with only 57000km on the clock. The Peugeot specialist has just told me that it may be part of the recall that was done on this model for this exact problem. I will find out tomorrow if it is and if so, I will not have to pay for it. I will keep you posted. And I’m sorry, Chucri, it has a timing chain, not a belt... Marc dos Santos from South Africa

My 207cc has just had timing chain done, back at Peugeot. It had smoke coming from the exhaust and failed its MOT, due to too much CO2. I had to pay for timing done as was not aware of recall. Jenifer Watson from England

Yep I have had this problem too, Anti pollution warning. Garage did diagnostics, it`s TIMING CHAIN. My car is Peugeot 207 sport SW 2010 with 32k on clock. Dawn Jenkins from Tyne and Wear
