When driving my Peugeot 207 a warning light came up electrical circuit fault and the battery light was showing. I stopped turned the engine off and on again and the light went out. I carried on then the light came back on followed by all the lights came on and the engine cut out. We were able to start it again and drove 100 yards when we lost the powersteering and the engine cut out again and then gad to push the car home. Today the car started but when looking in the engine the driving belt had snapped. The battery been on charge all day but still flat. Any ideas please

Heater is only blowing cold air. Coolant header tank loses antifreeze each time I top it up. A lot of steam coming from the exhaust and around the engine after driving about 5 miles. Have been told it may be the head gasket. Where are the bleed screws located on the coolant system as it may be air locked?

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)

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

!. What causes the DEPOLUTION SYSTEM FAULT ?? 2. Why is my car very sluggish and slow on the slightest of incline ??

Answers

Mine did this as it had sat around a while. I put redex into the fuel tank, gave it a good drive and it`s been fine now. Also check the sensors, when they get dirty antipollen filter comes up sheena sedge from Kent

Depollution control means that the engine computer has had to make a control to the fuel injector system as the output gasses are wrong. Two main possibilities, spark plugs need changing as they are misfiring - when that happens the engine management system cuts the fuel to the injectors. Or, the injectors are blocked - in fuel additives MIGHT help hopefully as new injectors VERY Expensive.Royston Wareham from Kent

I've just paid £200 for a service & was informed that the 'brake fluid boiling point/level water content is 2.5%' what does this mean - also, should they have changed the brake fluid as part of the service? Also I paid extra for the engine cleaning; they found a 'small oil leak, recommended cleaning off & monitoring,' my car now smells of burning oil which it didn't before I had the service, should they have found the leak whilst cleanng the engine & fixed it then? rather then it geting all clogged up again?

When I've finished driving and removed the key the display for the milage counter is still lit up. Is this normal? I'd assume that since the key is removed there's no need for this to still be on. The display even turns off if the key is inserted but electronics not turned on. It'll then turn back on when the key is removed. I'm just a little concerned about drain on the battery. I've had a search about online and can't find anything.
