Just last week I had the Anti Pollution system faulty message come up on the dash, car running ok but I think my petrol consumption has gone up, maybe just my imagination though. It`s booked in for diagnostic at weekend but thought I'd see what responses I got here to prepare me for any shocks. On a seperate issue, steering pulls to right a bit and wheel wobbles a bit at higher speeds then seems to settle down...any ideas guys? Thanks

Since having a major service at main dealers the centre dash display has changed, it used to display an accelerometer (foot too hard on throttle etc), date, day, time and temperature, also how many miles left of fuel in the tank. The agents don't know how to reset it. I`m sure that somehow it is connected to a radio control and or the button on the end of the wash/wipe control. I`m going mad trying to get the display back, can you help?

Why is my anti pollution sign coming on.What should I do ?

Answers

Hi Fran, I had the anti pollution faulty message appear a few months back on my 57 plate 207 and when the engine was on in neutral it sounded like the car was about to backfire. Turns out my catalytic converter was internally broken, I had issues with my oxygen sensors etc. I had to have new everything fitted in relation to the anti pollution system, costing approximately a grand! Peugeot garages will charge you about £70 just for a diagnosis before even doing anything to resolve the issue, but most other independent garages will do diagnosis for free and then leave it in your hands as to whether you want them to carry out the work needed or if you wish to take it elsewhere you can. Hope this helps - best of luck! Ps. Get it checked ASAP if you haven't already as it can cause damage to the engine! Nikki from Middlesex

Answer this question

Whiskey, Essex

Peugeot 207

Hello, could someone help me out with a problem I am experiencing with my new (second hand) Pug 207 HD1 1.6 3dr 56 plate please? First off, got the car home from sitting on the outdoor sales forecourt and everything was fine, about 5 hours later I went to start the car and even though it did start up on the second revolution the turning over to get it started was slow and sluggish ("yaw.... yaw"). When I got home I removed the battery and gave it an overnight charge and checked that the battery was fuly charged. A voltmeter shows me that the car out a voltage of 13 volts standing to max 14v on running at 50mph and after the battery went back in it started up ok. Three hours later and after a good run the same deal..... sluggish turn over to start (again x2 "yaw....yaw" slow turn overs to start the engine). Also the main problem for me is this, when the car`s ignition system decided to randomly turn over very slowly it knocks out the car`s computer memory, so the clock goes back to factory and date and presets and all the car radio settings, all gone! If this were a petrol car first I would have checked the battery, then on to the starter and finally the fuel pump. As this 207 is hdi with a common rail diesel engine I am a bit lost? Could the battery be knackered as I believe that the voltage should be above 13.3volts all of the time? I know it`s nothing to do with the glow plugs so that's ruled out, I have also heard that it could be a knackered old fuel pump or an air leak problem? I am doubtful that it`s an alternator issue as the car`s existing battery is not losing voltage, it`s just low (12v - 13v at best). The car itself shows signs that it`s been sitting for a long time in a damp wet Welsh valley due to the signs of moss and algae around the windows and seals and leaves inside the engine bay. There are also damp residue build ups around the engine block itself. I am having a clean up in the bay and now I have the car it`s dryer and there seems to be no serious issues with water or damp inside (especially near the ecu, obd socket or fuse boxes). There are signs that show that somebody has continuously jump started the car rather than just solve the problem as there are lots of scorched burn marks to the battery terminals and connectors! Some help please? Thank you. (Note: car runs perfectly, no signs of engine problems and this issue does not happen every time. I would say that the car drains the battery to the point of it taking up all the power for starting up and knocking out the computer and radio memory once out of every 5 car start ups, random and when car is started at all angles (parked)

Probably solved or sold it by now, I had the same problem, believe it or not it the windscreen washer pump, apparently water tracks from the pump to the fuse box, I assume its due to the pump seal failing ?its nxt to battery, lift of box lid, pull the middle loom plug out and there is possibly water in the socket causing the problem. dry out plug & socket with an air line if possible then spray WD 40 into them. You will need to replace the pump asap though. Martin from Gloucestershire

I am trying to change the rear light on my Peugeot 207 SW and have read some advice on websites (the manual is next to useless) but nowhere does it say whether or not the actual red plastic bit on the outside of the car, actually comes off? It talks about unscrewing the bolt which I have done, but I can't shift the casing and can't move the connector thingy either. Help!

Had same problem with my daughters car. It took a lot of tugging to release it - it then flew off and I ended up dropping it, chipping the pointed end of the lens cover. The rubber grommets that locate a couple of location pins harden over time making difficult to release. I advise using a thin broad implement (dinner knife) slide between the lens and rear car body by tailgate (protect with masking tape) to lever it off to the rear, not sideways (there are guides that locate the long tapered section that runs down the side of the car -its more controlled than tucking. Smear pins with a little liquid soap to aid re-assembly. Should also be easier to remove lens next time a bulb needs replacing. RIchard Wilson from Hampshire
