Hi, A slightly different Peugeot seat belt problem. My front passenger seat belt light always shows green as if the seat belt is fastened even when it not and there is no one in the seat. Any idea what is causing this? I would guess at some kind of contact in the seat belt stalk that should only be made when seat belt is inserted but has somehow stuck so it now thinks the belt is in. Do you think this is correct? Regards, Jon

The outside temperateur was 7 degrees. Today I started the car and the tempeature was at 10 degrees and the engine sounded ok. My question, is the rattling noise and the high rpm the normal characteristics for this type of vehicle or should do i need a repair. Kind regards Alan

Trevor Milroy, New Zealand

Peugeot 207

My 207 hatch doesn't have an accessory position on the steering /ignition key barrell. So my question for help is I can't listen to the radio unless I have the ignition system turned on. How do i overcome this problem? It is rather foreign to sit in the car waiting for the wife to finish shopping while having the ignition system turned on. All my other cars have had the acc position on the key barrel. Pushing the radio power on button has no effect unless I have the ignition system switched to on. What should I do? Thanks

Answers

Trevor, there are two options.. put up with it as it is... or rewire at the rear of the radio.. but run a risk you'll anger the French electronics system which will then play up in weird and wonderful ways. If you want to rewire the radio.. you'll need to remove it and identify two of the wires that plug into the rear.. one of which will be permanent live and the other will be ignition live. i.e. only live when the engine is on in your car. Once you have this write them down to make sure you don't forget which is which. Then disconnect battery... cut both wires.. then join the permanent live from car to both wires to radio. E.G. - Your wires are RED= permanent live.. YELLOW=ignition live.... Cut both... then the yellow from the car.. insulate it properly. The red and yellow from the radio you connect to the red from the car. R Evans from Caerphilly

Thank you Trevor Milroy from New Zealand

Trevor.. remember though.. you will be cutting a permanent live wire.. to safety first.. disconnect the battery. R Evans from Caerphilly

Peugeot 207

Hi how can I clean out my coolent tank on my car as it has oil on the inside of the bottle but it's not floating on the water. Any help will be appreciated

Answers

Diane, what I'd be a little more concerned about first is WHY there is OIL in your coolant tank... have you resolved that? Oil in the coolant is one of the indicators of a failed head gasket which if not put right could leave you stranded. Or are you suspecting that there is oily looking substance in there.. several coolants give the impression that they contain oily substance.. it's the mixture of ethylene glycol and other corrosion inhibitors and may just be quite normal.. If you just want to clean out the coolant reservoir you'd need to dismantle it and remove it from the vehicle... when the vehicle is cold ! No need to drain the whole system. Kitchen sink and washing up liquid will emulsify oily residues and wash them out thoroughly with clean water and reassemble. when re-filling use good qualify coolant with inhibitors.. and I'm sure in next to no time you'll be seeing your 'oil' again.

We have a 207 cabriolet Elle Peugeot car. We just got the alternator changed but have noticed that when the car is turned off- the light height adjuster button stays on. Is that a problem? We may not have noticed this before as it is a tiny light. Also, when you turn the engine on, it says remote key battery flat- can you explain? Regards David

Answers

the remote key battery flat message.. simple.. the key has a small battery fitted that powers it. it is used when you lock and unlock the car as well as each time you go to drive it.. the battery gets used in order for the security system to be happy of genuine user. They usually last a few years but depends on use and if you keep your keys in a tights trouser pocket (or ladies in a handbag) the buttons may be getting pressed a lot more than you think. They are usually simple to replace and you should either see screws or a little point where you can prize the two pieces apart to access the battery.. there are different kinds of batteries in different fobs, so check which battery you have first, then got the right one.

What does it mean when it says anti pollution system not working and orange symbol appears

Answers

Stating the obvious.. it means just that.. your anti pollution system is malfunctioning.. (or your car's brain, the ECU, is detecting that it is not working!!) .. the anti pollution is part of the gadgetry that is on vehicles in order for them to comply with EC regulations , Euro 3, Euro 4, Euro 5 .emissions... it basically continuously detects how much crap your vehicle is putting into the atmosphere and makes some adjustments to engine's running conditions to make sure your vehicle runs as clean as it can.. The system not working.. it could be something simple like a sensor failed but on Pugs there is a canister depollution absorber that could fail (pain to change as you may have to remove the front wing to get to it (model dependent) .. argh), there is the egr valve that may have clogged up or gone faulty and there are sensors in the exhaust system.. I believe two on yours.. the French call them oxygen probes.. we more commonly refer to them as lambda sensors, but in the anti pollution system there are also electrovalves that could be faulty. It could be that you have a DPF (diesel particulate filter) on your variant which may need a regeneration (regen). These filter out larger particles and can eventually clog up. HOW you drive your vehicle can have some bearing on the egr valve and DPF clogging up.. if you do short, start-stop journeys, you are far more likely to get clogged up sooner.. and taking the car for a weekly run of at least 30mins with your engine revs between 2500-3000rpm will help reduce clogging. Try putting some fuel additive in the fuel tank and running that for a while.. it soften helps. Thereafter, you ought to get it plugged into a diagnostic computer to find out WHY it is not working.. or you could end up spending a packet if you just change things speculatively.

Jackie Darley, West Yorkshire

Peugeot 207

Amber power steering light has started coming on and stop light on dashboard why?

Answers

Jackie you may have two issues developed.. the power steering light could be an indication that your fluid reservoir needs a top-up (which may indicate a leak somewhere as they don't tend to 'use' fluid unless there is a leak)..your stop light could be a number of things including worn brake pads or shoes, damaged wiring (it sometimes comes loose at the wheels and rubs through) or a loosened ar defective switch at the handbrake or footbrake. I am not of a mind that the two lights are linked to one problem at this point. R Evans from Caerphilly

I have a problem with my multifunction screen on my dash no writing comes up with instructions any more and when I turn off the ignition the orange light were the writing normally is stays on. Please can anyone advise me what could be wrong. Thank you in advance.

Answers

There are a number of orange lights that could come on to indicate a fault.. what does the picture look like? French vehicles have a reputation for being electrically poor and there are many questions on various forums relating to dashboard not working.. but your orange light coming on seems to suggest that it does work, but something is stopping it from working properly.. could be a loose plug, deteriorating connections, poor earthing points or malfunction. Get it plugged in to OBD computer for diagnostic. You don't need to go to Pug for this.. a good autolec may be able to do it.. or better still an engine tuning place.. they have weird and wonderfully complicated kit... talk nicely to them and you may be able to negotiate a minimal fee... less than £50 where Pug wil prob charge £80 just to plug you in!

Peugeot 207

When the car is idling The revs drop slightly. I don't use it every day and don't go over 50 mph. Thanks to anyone who response.

Answers

Teresa, when you say your revs drop slightly.. do you mean they drop and stay there, or they drop then resume? Also, what engine do you have in your 207.. petrol or diesel? When you do use it, HOW is it used... motorways.. start stop short distance? Are there any other things you notice about the performance or smoke from exhaust?? R Evans from Caerphilly

Sorry the revs drop slightly and stay that way. The engine is petrol and it's a 1.4 . It's only used for short distance. There does'nt seem to anything else wrong. Teresa riley from Merseyside

OK... every now and again modern engines need to have a good run or emissions filtering systems don't reach the high temperature they need to keep clean.. and they build up with soot. That may be a cause. You can help clear this by taking it for a trip of about 50 miles, even motorway back and forth, and keep your engine revs above 2000rpm where you can, but no need to keep them near the 'red zone'... in other words, keep them up, but don't rev the guts from the engine... doing this on your drive will not be the same. Your car, may benefit from a fuel filter change and a clean through with a fuel additive to dissolve any varnishes that may have built up in the fuel feed system.. a treatment like redex or similar may help. If these don't work then there could be something else wrong that is almost impossible to diagnose without testing. R Evans from Caerphilly
