My interior light and 'door open' warning stays on with door shut. Can anyone help me with this please
I had the same problem few weeks ago. even when I used to go out of the car and try to lock it, it would not lock . I used to give it a small knock on the driver door handle and lock it again. Now I changed the driver lock and solved the problem Alan from Malta

Hello! I recently fitted a gearbox from a 307 to a 407, and the cruise control stopped working, although the speed limiter works but just won't engage, all the other sensors (brake and pedal) work. I took it to Peugeot and they told me that's because of the different gears ratio, and that's why is not working. Just wanted to know if this is true? Cos they want to charge me a fortune for a new gearbox. Thanks for the attention

Hi I have a 2006, 407HDI 136bhp SW model and have been given 7 litres of commercial 'add blue' to top up my de-pollution system. Does anyone know if lorry 'add blue' is ok for this vehicle? Thanks in advance Tony
This might destroy your engine! I have a 2007 2.0hdi 407. Mine does not take Add blue. It takes Pat fluid. Addblue and Patfluid (Eloy oil) are 2 different things. Addblue gets injected into the diesel particulate filter (its 70% water) but Patfluid is injected into the diesel tank Paul Mccartney from Armagh

My tyre inflate logo stays on even after I have put appropriate amount of air in the tyres. Is this a sensor fault or does computer need resetting? If it's the latter can I do reset, if so how, or do I have to go to engineers place to get it done??? Thank you for your assistance.

Hi, my 407's engine light has come on. I have been told by a few people it is to do with some special oil (like a blood bag) which should be put into the car as it has ran out. Do you know if this is correct? If it is, how much would it be and could I put it in myself??
Could well be if its a diesel. There is a tank of additive which needs refilling c 80k. Interestingly I was told having owned a Diesel 407 for 9 years by a chap at Peugeot that the additive (which is not cheap) is injected each time you fill the tank. In other words best to fill up the tank 100% each time which is what I have always done. So far no warning light. Elsewhere on Google a chap describes how to refill the Oilio tank but it did not look easy for an amateur. Hope this helps. PUGMAN from Surrey

cut out while driving try to restart nothing economy drive mode coming on depollution faulty system was coming on for a while but was driving fine
See response to Lewis Wardell. Could also be that EGR (exhaust gas recycling valve) needs cleaning. My engine (diesel) cut out recently because of this. Apparently the sensor concerned detects a change in pressure in the crankcase and closes the engine down. The valve was cleaned at the cost of 3 hours labour and all is well. Use only fully synthetic oil was the advice I was given to keep the engine working well. Also mechanic gave the engine a full flush. (80k on clock) PUGMAN from Surrey

Peugeot 407 SW hdi Auto. My n/s/r brake disc gets red hot and there's a constant whining brake noise similar to old bus brakes, when my car's moving. There is no excessive resistance on the wheel when the car's up on the ramp. Even so, I've had to have the disc and pads replaced as since the symptoms started, the pads completely wore down. Had the caliper replaced too. But now, same problem. Garage that did brake work is at a loss..... Please help.

Hi, Sorry ignore previous post I realised email was wrong. Just recently my 407 coupe’s temperature gauge has gone from not getting anywhere near the centre mark, to more recently not moving at all. All seams fine with the engine so Im guessing it could be a sensor? Any advice appreciated. thanks Rich
