Peugeot 207

While driving the steering became still and eventually locked. After calling RAC on their instruction. I left the car switched off for a while (about) 20 mins and switched on moving steering wheel at the same time which freed it up and proceeded home. This fault still occurs after about 20 mins. so I repeat procedure and travel on. I have taken the car to a local garage who tell me I need a new electrical box which is going to be £600. Thats OK but I am not convinced. As it is a steering fault (which does indicate on dashboard) surely its not electrical but a mechanical steering fault - maybe linkage or some other physical fault. Would be grateful for you views before I proceed Regards Tony

There is no warning/fault message on the multifunction display, however I am unable to access the vehicle configuration section as it has hash marks through it as if it had been either made inavctive or is not working for some reason.

Peugeot 207

Hi, I've recently purchased a Peugeot 207 (06 plate) for myself as a first car since i only recently passed my test. When i put the key in the ignition, all warning lights appear and then go off. However, (minus the handbrake and seatbelt lights), the battery indicator light stays illuminated. This does not go off at all until i start up the engine. This has been something that i've noticed since i got the car, and i've drove both short and long journeys covering approx. 400 miles so far in the hopes that the car will charge the battery whilst driving. Despite this, the battery indicator light still illuminates whenever i get in the car and only goes off when actually driving or the engine is running. Can anyone please advise me on the situation please? As i stated above, i'm a new driver and need help and guidance to understand everything to do with my car. Thanks in advance, Will!

Answers

Hi the reason that the battery indicator only goes off when you start the engine, is that this indicates it is being charged by the alternator. Adrian from Devon

Hi, when I have my headlights on the speedo/petrol gauge and rev counter are all really dim and it's difficult to see them in the dark. I don't have a handbook for the car. Can anyone tell me how I adjust this please?

Answers

You should have a button on the dash sitting between the temperature gauge and the fuel gauge. If you press this button with the lights on it should adjust the brilliance of the instrument lighting. Hugh from City of Glasgow

Thank you Hugh from Glasgow, I've checked and there are no buttons. There are 2 small buttons, 1 is to reset the trip and the other sets the date, time etc on the big display panel. lesley mackinnon from Midlothian

You still do not state the year and model of your car. Information I have is: Activation- When the lights are on: Press the button to change the brightness of the instruments and controls, When the lighting reaches the minimum setting, release the button, then press again to increase it or when the lighting reaches the maximum setting, release the button, then press again to reduce it. When the lighting reaches the level of brightness required, release the button. Deactivation. When the vehicle lighting is off, or in day mode on vehicles fitted with day time running lamps, pressing the button does not have any effect. Hugh from City of Glasgow

My apologies it's a 2013 207 sw estate. lesley mackinnon from Midlothian

Hugh from Glasgow. You were indeed correct about the turning the button. I did it last night and it worked. Thank you very much for your help. lesley mackinnon from Midlothian

Peugeot 207

Power steering motor replaced on 14/3/2017 by local main dealer following sudden and total failure of power steering overnight on driveway. No charge thanks to goodwill gesture by Peugeot. I live in a cul de sac and have a short driveway on a slight slope so on starting I have to immediately turn the steering wheel clockwise using effort. It is noticeable on most occasions recently that after releasing the steering lock the wheel is briefly stiff to operate as if there is an absence of power steering. I remember this occurring sometimes prior to the motor failure and put it down to the steering lock. I am concerned about this situation and would appreciate feedback.

Answers

If you are turning the steering wheel while the vehicle is still stationary you are placing excessive load on the system. Make sure you are travelling, even very slowly before you turn the wheel. Hugh from City of Glasgow

From cold. I drive away-stop to give way, so within 500 metres and on pulling away. Car steering goes very heavy. No warning lights are showing. Battery is less than a year old. Already had the very expensive air pollution issue sorted. Just had MOT. Worried it will stop when I'm pulling out in very busy junction. Seems fine when running. Just seems when cold. Help.. thanks

Answers

Problem is caused when the windscreen washer pump starts leaking and water from the washer bottle goes from the leaking pump through the electrical wires and eventually into the fuse box near the battery in the engine bay. It then destroys the connectors in the fuse box from the inside so you can't see the damage. Peugeot main dealer may price repairs around £2,500 which includes a new main wiring loom, new fuse box, new windscreen washer pump and about 14 hours labour. Hugh from City of Glasgow

Power steering fault message appears, and power steering fails. Stop car, turn off and restart engine and power steering is working fine again. This is happening quite frequently.

Answers

If it's electric power steering then it may be water ingress into the loom and also the fuse box if you are getting other spurious lights etc. The windscreen washer pump leaks water and causes problems with the wiring and connectors etc due to shorting out and corrosion. If it;s only the steering then check the alternator output, if it is low in power then it may affect your the electric pump on the steering rack. Hugh from City of Glasgow

Nakeah, Greater London

Peugeot 207

I have had a 06 Peugeot 207 1.4 16v since April 2014. It has done 63k as of 2017. It has been leaking oil since early 2016. I repaired it twice last year only to find the leak return after a week then 5 months later in Dec 2016. The fan belt went due to the leaking oil and the battery subsequently cut out. Had to be towed to garage. It was then found the cylinder head had 2 small holes which could not be blocked causing the leak. I then found a reconditioned cylinder head and opted to change it. I now have low oil pressure, this happened 30min after driving away from the mechanic who tested the vehicle. The part was also pressure tested and skimmed and tested by the company and an independent company. The low oil pressure flashes on the dash after a 20-30 min drive when the car is idling. At first it was just a message on the dash but now the red oil light and a stop message flash up then disappear too. The company i purchased from who guaranteed the part for 6 month, say its the oil pump as this is what maintains pressure when the car is idling. My mechanic says my car never had an oil pump issue before and he believes that a part is loose on the cylinder head causing low oil pressure. The car diagnostics have been checked twice on 2 seperate occassions after the low oil pressure flashes on the dash and no fault codes present themselves. I had an oil filter change in May 2016. As well as a new water pump, timing belt. The cam seals have also been changed as well as new thermostat housing when cylinder head was put in as that was part of the guarantee from company i bought cylinder head from. A new oil pressure sensor and oil filter have been fitted and same problem appeared again after car warmed up. The mechanics added 5w30 oil where as i have always used 5w40 oil. Never had any problems with car overheating. I have yet to test the pressure with a gauge. My question is at this point am i looking at a fault with the reconditioned cylinder head. Should i scrap the car?

Hello, I have a peugeot 207, when I put my foot on the accelerator after changing gear there is a whining noise that is getting louder. It is only noisy when I press on the accelerator. The mechanic said it was nothing to worry about, but I feel that it is a problem. Can someone please give me some advise. My husband is a non driver so he can't help me. Hope this is clear enough to someone who knows cars. Thank you.

Answers

Does it whine when you press the accelerator when the car isn't in gear (stationary)? If so it could be a slipping fan belt or the water pump or alternator are on the way out. If it only does it when in a gear is engaged does it do it in every gear or just one particular gear? If its any gear then it's probably the clutch or the gearbox main bearing, if it's only in one particular gear it could be wear in the gear rings for that gear. Mick from Portugal

Whilst many people do remove rattling heat shields you have to remember that it's there for a reason. Those who don't want to remove it and want a permanent cure for the rattle secure it with stainless steel jubilee clips (the sort that are used around the joints of wood burning fire stove pipes which are heatproof and won't rust).
