On several occasions various warnings come up on the dash board : power steering faulty, brake system faulty...until this week the warning only came on when the engine started and then didn't come on the rest of the day. This week another warning has come on showing the engine management system has a fault. I took the car to a garage but they say it could be a major fault and won't give me a price for repair suggesting I would be better buying a new one. What do you think?

peugeot 207 SW estate, 1.6cc outdoor, 57 plate 2008. central locking has been fine up until today. I believe i didn't close the boot fully (closed it manually) as i had lots of shopping in my hand. Went back for more shopping and it wouldn't open. I thought perhaps the car was locked but all the doors opened fine. so i tried to lock the car and then unlock to see if i could reset everything. However the car doors would not lock (via fob) but the boot remained locked. I then tried to lock and unlock manually (key in drivers door) didn't work. The lights were not flashing like they usually do when i lock/unlock (either fob nor manually) but it was making the "cachung" sound the central locking usually makes. I then sat in the car and closed the door and locked myself in via the central locking lock on dashboard. this worked, my daughter couldn't get in from outside the vehicle. This also worked for children's locks. she again couldn't get it. So my car doors do lock, just not when i am on the outside! which is probably the most important time for them to be locked! The boot however remained locked the entire time, through everything i have tried. I tried making sure the boot was completely closed by pulling it from the inside (using the little handles on either side of the lock) It did close a little more so i do believe it wasn't shut fully initially. So i then repeated the above actions but same outcomes on all fronts, except manually the key worked to lock one of the car doors (drivers) but the boot remained locked and the other doors open. I then read online to put key in ignition and hold down the lock button for 10 secs. didn't change anything. I then read perhaps the signal of fob was low so to sit in car with fob close to steering wheel near sensor and try the boot opening key that way... no change. After this i then tried to manually re-lock drivers side as that worked once previously, it would not work a second time. I thought about opening boot from inside, perhaps once its open it would reset everything but don't know how i could go about that?! So tonight i have a locked boot but everything else is open. As it will only lock from the inside and as much as i love that car, im not sleeping in it!
Don't know if you have found a solution to your problem yet, I had a similar problem with a 206 sw. You may find that when you were loaded down with your shopping and opened the boot you inadvertently released the opener for the glass portion of the tailgate, there are two boot releases one in the centre opens the whole tailgate the other which is located to the right hand side of the first boot release. This one opens the glass section only. The solution is to activate the right hand boot release ( for the glass panel) open the glass panel get your fingers between the glass and metal lid and lift glass panel then close again. Now using the centre tailgate release open the main tailgate and close should solve the problem. Hope this makes sense and helps. Pete Phelps from Gloucestershire

When the engine is cold the gear selection is very stiff but when it has warmed up the selection is fine apart from selecting 1st gear from standstill when the car shudders as if you are doing a racing start are the two things connected and would changing oil cure it, and which oil needs to be changed. Thanks in advance for any responses.

My oil cap seems trapped and I don't know why, it turns and loosen but won't lift out and I can't see why Can anyone help why?!?
Hi I have had the same problem after a service came loose but would not come out. Try some wd40 not very much just a sort spray tighten up then undo three or four times when it goes tight again try loosen it a bit more i found it had bean put on cross threaded and did not clear the last bit of thread. If it works look for rough threads and clean them up.Hope this works for you i am sure that is the problem keep trying. David from Somerset

Hi, I have a Peugeot 207. There is a Anti Pollution faulty display after I have started the engine. Can anyone tell me what is that mean ? Or what is the fault please ? At the meantime my car still running ok.
Anti Pollution Fault is a fun thing on Peugeot cars. This can be anything from a faulty fuel filler cap, exhaust sensors, timing, spark plugs, particulate filter if its a diesel, incorrect fuel injection, air filter. What you must do is to get the fault codes read by a garage, one that uses "Planet Peugeot" You could spend a small fortune trying to correct the fault yourself, so get the fault codes read first then take it from there. John from Essex
Was told to drive it for at least 20 minutes or more 40mph+ in low gear so revs at 3000 .gets particular filter and exhaust hot and burns off residue. Caused by short journeys and not getting exhaust hot enough Carol from Yorkshire

hi , three days ago the warning came up saying brake light faulty, so we had a new bulb fitted....then when i re started the car the warning came up saying faulty indicater light ..so had that bulb changed, now all lights were working.......driving along ten minutes later the right indicater starts flashing really fast when i turned it on...? once again the warning comes up but now its telling me i have faulty brake lights, faulty indicaters and faulty fog light.......HELP ...please ? (all bulbs are ok )
Common fault on the 207, its the earthing of the rear lights that causes this, the solution is to clean all earthing points or connect a wire from the rear lamp assembly to earth. In the broader sense, don't these two words - French and reliability - in the same sentence, seem to raise questions? John from Essex

I have a 2012 207 SW. I have found that there is water under the carpets mainly in the rear passenger foot well but also some dampness under the front passenger carpet. I have sucked out maybe 3 pints but the real issue is how is it getting in there. As far as I can say when I pour water into the front scuttle under the windscreen it seems to come straight out at the bottom Any ideas or suggestions please
My thoughts on this are rubber door seals or drain holes blocked in the bottom of the doors. I have read this is a common problem with Peugeots. If water is flowing from the scuttle freely this would indicate the drain pipes are O.K. John from Essex

Hello .. My 207 has a display everytime i start the ignition and dissappears after few seconds First it displayed -700km Then it started increasing by time now it displays -1400km Can u help me i'm confused about it
This normally is the mileage due to the next service. Procedure to Reset Peugeot Service Light as follows: 1. Switch the Ignition Off 2. Press and hold the trip meter (mileage reset) button on the dash 3. Now switch the ignition to the ON position 4. Keep the button pressed for 10 seconds 5. The display will read "10" and count down to '0' and the service symbol will extinguish. Job done. John from Essex

Hi started the car up yesterday and there was no throttle/accelerations Called out AA who advised it was the throttle potentiometer broken and needed a new throttle actuator. AA then towed my to my local garage who have advised me that they cannot fix it and needs to go to a main dealer which I AA are going to charge me nearly £100 to get the car to a main dealer Can this problem be fixed by a local garage or is it a major job that only the main dealer can fix
The answer depends on what engine you have, some are fitted with a throttle cable connected to the throttle body., others are fitted with a "Fly by Wire" i.e a potentiometer accelerator pedal which can be had on Ebay from £15 to £30.. Any garage worth it's salt can fit either. John from Essex
