Peugeot 308

Good afternoon. I have a (59) plate 308 HDI diesel. I rather stupidly tried to start my car with just the metal piece of the key, as it had become detached from the plastic fob. The anti theft device turned itself on. I then tried to start the car with the spare,which had the remote locking fob on it, the car does not start. The car still shows a warning that the anti that device is active. Can I start the car agin? Do I reset it with the spare somehow? Any assistance is gratefully accepted. Kind regards Gary

Hello, the car has just started to misfire when its idling in neutral at 1000rpm. No warning signs on the car and when you start driving it runs fine. Its just when you stop at a roundabout etc then the idle splutter starts.

I bought a second hand 308 Vti 1.4 S 57 plate 83k miles. Fault flashed up with engine warning light. *Temp gauge seems to never move in transit unless stopped at light etc... *Engine light on *Anti Pollution Fault on display Seemed ok on drive home from dealers via motorway. Basically sold as seen so no come back. Not afraid to spend something on the car as appreciate the age and it looks ok, drives ok. Bought cheap as searched similar ages models and I've paid a lot less. They probably knocked the code off before selling on! Thanks, genuinely need help as this car replaces stolen one using my insurance payout! Advice please

Answers

I've paid out quite a bit trying to sort this problem on 58 plate. Only difference with mine is that my car would lose power, the throttle would be to the floor and I'd barely get it above 30mph. Also the cooling fan wouldn't shut off either. After three different mechanics taking a look/changing various parts and telling me that the main brain (computer) is on its way out and would cost £1800-£2500 to replace. I got lucky and found a really good electrical engineer who told me it's not the main computer. He changed the manifold sensor, spark plugs and put a product called Cataclean (can be purchased from Halfords £16) in the fuel tank to clean up the injectors. It is now a day later.. The car (so far) is driving great! The fan is off. There are no warning or engine lights on. All I can do is live in hope that this has sorted the problem. I wish you all the luck.

Hi I have the above car. It's the auto version. It's quite juddery/struggles for power when the engine is cold in the morning. Once it warms up the car is smooth as it can be. Also the car gets the following fault everyone often on the dash board - "gearbox faulty" and it won't let me go above 3rd gear. It also feels like the clutch is going, when started after standing over night it judders, but again when warmed up its fine. Can anyone shed any light on these three matters?
