My dashboard says I am doing 47MPG then it changes to 999, then 666 and so on. I have been told this is a software problem. If so where is the best place to have it fixed and the cost? Can it be done while I wait for the car?

Hi i am currently experiencing problems with 308 needing oil every 2 weeks or so the garage say there are no leaks so just keep an eye on it !! i am worried it is burning oil also in the morning i drive about 5 miles before it blows hot air. Any relies ir suggestions would be very much appreciated

Answers

Mine started to do this and then a Anti Pollution System failure popped up - turns out the timing belt and water pump needed replacing but it highlighted that the turbo oil feed pipe was leaking and had to be replaced. Had it back 2 days and now the EMU is flashing up an incomplete roof manoeuvre warning (which it can't do as the screen isn't in place) - back into the garage for the next problem to be diagnosed. I'd get them to specifically check your turbo feed. Helen from West Midlands

Peugeot 308 CC 1.6 Turbo Exclusive 156 HK gasoline - Problem is an oil leak. I bought the car in 2010 and already in 2011 I got the first oil leak from the cam chain tensioner (?) 1½ year later I got an acute oil leak, within a few minutes all oil disappeared and I got the WARNING: NO OIL PRESSURE. I luckily stopped the car immediatelyand the engine survived. The chain / timing tensioner was replaced. A year later I got another oil leak. The workshop decided to replace a solenoid valve and oil pump (very expensive). Now I have heard that this oil leak problem is fairly common for this car model. This workshop had 7 incidents of oil leak caused by chain tensioner etc. Is this oil leak a problem for "Peugeot 308 cc turbo exclusive 2010" common known? Also another problem: I changed the battery half a year ago and from time to time I get a WARNING: BATTERY CHARGER FAULT. However the battery seems to work OK. Do I have to change something in the car`s computer? Many thanks in advance, Georg

Just got my 308 four days ago and side lights are on all pf the time. I can`t find how to turn these off in the manual, just wondering if they are supposed to be on all of the time and if not how do I get them to turn off?

Answers

Is it just your front lights? If this is the case they are daytime running lights. Now a legal requirement on all new uk cars. You can turn them off, using the menu button on the stereo scroll through to find "vehicle parameters" vehicle lighting should be in there somewhere. However for safety I would leave them on. 1811 from South Yorkshire

Hi, I`ve just got my brand new Peugeot 308 4 days ago. One thing with this car really annoys me and I actually don't know if it is a common thing or just on my 308. Everytime I start the car in the morning (or other times when it hasn't been used for a couple of hours) and it reaches 3rd gear I feel a big "click" in the gas pedal. It's only in 3rd and only this one time. If I shift to 4th gear and back into 3rd there is nothing. What could it be? In general I can feel everything in the gas pedal, the engine and it feels like there are small "clicks" all of the time. Any others who experience this?

Steering issue; my steering becomes intermmittently stiff and heavy, most unpleasant. First happened 5 weeks after taking delivery in October 2013. Since than dealership have changed the power steering pump, steering rack and discs (they went rusty). This is my third 308cc, last two were petrol 1.6, no steering issues with those. I can get nowhere with the delaership and Peugeot don't seem to want to know). Tyres, tracking and pressures regularly checked. Any ideas? I haven`t been able to drive another one of these to compare. I think from the feedback that I have had that they know there is a problem but don't want to own up.

I accelerated quite rapidly to get onto a fast road after doing so it was as if my car had lost its booster power. It was working but without any oomph. The warning triangle came on and it said something about the engine. This lasted for about twenty minutes then the car was fine. This has happened on 2 previous occasions but each time it has happened it coincides with rapid acceleration. The last time it happened we took it in to the peugeot garage but they could not find what was wrong. Have you any ideas? The car is a 2012 plate. Many thanks Anne- Marie Matthew

I have a 308SR from about 2000 which has a strange impromptu problem. While driving at almost speed the gearbox changes down and the engine revs rise to around 4500. With my foot off the gas the car continues to move and the only way that I can resolve this situation is to stop, wait for a few minutes and then restart. The Gearbox Fault message is no longer displayed on the in car display. The problem happens infrequently and at varying speeds and traffic conditions. I am concerned that this might happen while in a remote area or at night. My local dealer says there is no fault but has updated the gearbox ECU software. Any ideas?
