Peugeot 307

I have a Peugeot 307 it's been perfect until recently. I Left it parked flat for a day and when I started it up it was fine but the steering had all but locked. I had to physically tug it with both hands to make it turn, no leaks, had a new power steering pump fitted which didn't solve it, have found that the only way to fix it is to disconnect the fuse and reconnect. This solves the problem for a day or two but then it goes again, this has happened once when driving. Does anyonE have any idea what wrong or how to fully fix it?

Answers

I was reading about a problem within Peugeot and i suggest you contact your nearest Peugeot Dealer and explain the problem. I am positive they done a recall due to this fault. Dont drive it until the problem has been rectified please. This is dangerous. dj kwik fit from Dumfries and Galloway

Hi, I just bought my Pug 307 SW hdi and it has the anti pollution fault! Have taken it to the garage and it won't connect to the diagnostics, keeps saying linking error. Checked fuses and wires, even taken out the after market alarm but nothing seems to work and I can't fix anything without the diagnostics to tell me what to fix. Can anyone help please?

Maybe the problem is the garages diagnostics. Try another garage if possible to rule that out. dj kwik fit from Dumfries and Galloway

The Service Warning Light comes on at speed. Can you tell me why?

Answers

It may be an indication that somethings not right service wise. But it may well be an electrical fault that Peugeot seems to have issues with. If your vehicle needs a service you may find it goes away after you get one done. But if you can lift the bonnet and check your oil and water and brake fluid levels to be on the safe side until you can get it serviced by a Garage.

Tebogo, South Africa

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!

Answers

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

I did read that you can damage the Computer if you connected jump leads in-correctly while trying to get power to the battery. However i would try a brand new battery and see what happens. Let us Know if you can. Hope this helps. dj kwik fit from Dumfries and Galloway

Alarm keeps going off for no reason in damp weather. Does anyone know how to disconnect it?

Answers

Some Alarms have an adjuster switch on them that makes it more or less sensitive depending on which way you adjust it. Try that first, if it has no adjuster or it dont help then perhaps the rain water is getting to the main unit and i would suggest protecting it by tying a carrier bag round about it to keep it dry.

I hac#ve a Peogeot 307 1.4Hdi, it was running fine with no warning lights or any sign of any problems when I went to go out again (3hrs after last trip) the cat would not start, there was nothing at all it would not even turn over, there was a clicking coming from the fuse box so I checked all the fuses and they were all ok so checked the battery, I replaced this and everything was fine but its done the same after just a couple of hours, could anyone tell me if this is the battery or something else?

Answers

Sounds like your alternator has packed in. But make sure your fan belt is still intact first. The reason i think it lasted a couple of hours is if the alternator has stopped working then it is unable to charge the battery and as you are using power and not replacing it the battery will quickly become flat.

Peugeot 308 SW 2008

My Peugeot 308 SW`s seat belt warning light activates with nobody sitting in the seat. Any solutions?

Answers

I have the same problem. The warning light and sound activates randomly. Then I discovered on my car that the sensor for open door for one of the rear doors doesnt work. The open door-alarm does not work the that door, it is possible to lock the whole car with the remote control when just that door is open. I will suggest the workshop that they will take a closer look at this sensor. Ka Bac from Sweden

Repaired the sensor. The problem continued. The car was parked inside the metal workshop a few days for a different reason. After that, there has not been any problems. Therefore I have a different suspicion. Could it be due to moisture? It was moist under the seats when it sounded like the most. Have been through it before, I also kept skis in the car. Had damp skis pretty much just before it started. Now it's dry and quiet. Ka Bac from Sweden

We get this as well on the rear passenger seat, and we also think it has to do with moisture. We park our car outside, and always seem to have this problem after heavy rain - possibly with rain from wet roads entering the underside of the car, or general high humidity. The dealer just wants to replace the entire wireless antenna at great cost, but I'm not sure that would fix anything. We've swapped seats around in position, and it makes no difference - it's always the rear passenger side warning that goes off (and then stops, and then goes off again, and so on). John from Australia

This first happened to me about a year ago. It was the back passenger left side seat that kept triggering it (right hand drive car). Didn't matter if I moved my son's car seat, changed the seats around etc. The garage ran a diagnostic test and turned out to be the transponder aerial. They changed that and it was fine... up until two months ago when it happened again. They said it's due to moisture so removed the seat, dried underneath, changed the aerial and put a piece of plastic over it to try and prevent it happening it again. Both times cost about £200 each to replace Gayle O'Boyle from Lancashire

Both times cost about £200 each to replace Gayle O'Boyle from Lancashire

We also thought that the transponder aerial might be blocked by rubbish that had fallen through the seat mounting holes while the seats were out. We used an air compressor through the holes to blow air around the subfloor, and the result was that after we did this the alarm went off on the seat on the opposite side instead, so we think we may be on to something. Through the holes we saw a few things blowing around down there (one piece of paper and an acorn cap) so our next step will be to blow compressed air through one hole until we blow the debris where it can be seen, then use a vacuum cleaner to try to remove it. If this works we'll post again here. John from Australia

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

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 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

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

Hi, my remote key fob for my Peugeot Expert is not working. I changed the battery but still no joy. The rubber buttons you push are worn so maybe it’s that? It’s the key with 2 buttons on the thin edge as opposed to the fat side. Any thoughts or ideas please? Thanks.

Try putting your key in the ignition, turn the key to start engine then hold button on key fob down for 5 seconds to activate. It worked on my Peugeot 307 2007 model Paul Davis from England

I was thinking it is nothing until I stop in traffic when the car starts showing me the battery light, then later shows Automatic Gear fault, then Abs fault, Anti Pollution Fault and Battery charging fault. I changed my Alternator thinking it`s the Alternator that`s not good but have the same problem with the one I bought. What do you think is the problem and what could the solution be? Thanks

Hi, when my motorhome has been standing over a short period and I start up there is a loud and rattling noise from the gear box, when I depress the clutch pedal or increase the revs it stops. Any ideas as to what it can be?

Answers

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. I used a little head on the screw heads. Hope this helps FOX peter from France
