Hit a bump and has been showing powering steering faulty, ESP faulty, ABS faulty, gearbox faulty, braking system faulty, airbags faulty etc. and does not kick when I try to start vehicle ever since.
You need to scan the OBD2 port to see if the scanner can communicate with the system. Check the fuse box in the engine bay for corroded terminals also check other loom connections for corrosion or poor joints, unplug and replug all visible loom connections . You may have a dry solder joint in one of the car's printed circuit boards, need an electrician to test out. Hugh from City of Glasgow
Thanks, Hugh, it worked. It was a loose terminal on the BSI. Michael Ugochukwu from Nigeria

When I go over 70 mph the elm light comes on and will stay on until I slow down then it goes. Off sometimes I loose some power and sometimes I dont loose any power after I slow down everything goes back to normal took car to my Peugeot dealer could find no codes saved
It's your speed limiter switch working. Your dealer can disable it through diagnostic software. Hugh from City of Glasgow

Hi,I'm currently trying to figure out what is the issue with my car. It's a 3l V6 Tiptronic transmission. If I start the car and drive for an hour or so the oil temp goes up to 80- 90 deg and then when you select drive or reverse the car has a thud or jerk like I'm leaving the clutch to fast but it's automatic so I'm stuck. Had the gearbox drained and original ATF fluid filled from Peugeot, about 7l. I hope someone can help me for I am going grey. Many thanks.

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
