hi, have a 407sw, it just didn't want to start after I went shopping. I managed to get it started the other day, but took a full charged battery and some forced fuel, when it fired up it sounded like the timing was all wrong, was very rattily and clingy noise. I check the timing on the car but it seems to be fine, Any ideas.?

I can't open the boot from the outside. It will open with a screwdriver from the inside. I don't think it is a fuse as it was very unpredictable and then just stopped working. I've checked the wiring and it looks ok. Please help.

When i restarted it all sort of warning lights came on esp/abs engine man sys faulty faulty light and fog lamp bulbs and faulty antipolution system.i had thes faults cleared because the mechanic said he found no defects. But the faulty man sys light came back on and then esp light would come in and the car would cut out and restart after a few minutes. But since the last time the car would not start at all.any ideas as i have to get it started to get it at the garage
The Peugeot ECU and BSI Body Systems Interface control modules tend to go into meltdown if you reconnect a battery after a long while. BSI failures can give you no indicators, ignition lights on with no key, wildly incorrect instrument cluster readings and complete non start. You could try a BSI reset Put the driver's window down, open the bonnet and ensure all equipment is switched off. Make sure no one operates a key fob remote control in the vicinity during the following. Ensure all doors are closed and remove key from the ignition. Wait for 3 minutes, disconnect the vehicle battery and wait 15 seconds. Reconnect the vehicle battery, wait a further 10 seconds (do not open doors.). Switch on the side lights through the driver's window. Switch on the ignition and check system's functionality. If you have central locking, hold lock button on key down for 10 seconds. Remove key, open and close door then test central locking system. Start the engine and complete the system's check. If necessary repeat and try otherwise Google BSI reset. Hugh from City of Glasgow

hi everyone, can someone please help me. when my 407hdi is cold the car pulls away very slowly,almost on tick over, as soon as the revs pick up its ok, could it be something to do with the cold start?
It might be lack of turbo boost. Check turbo boost sensor and turbo boost control. Also check MAF sensor. Hugh from City of Glasgow

Two things you could check. All your flasher bulbs for clean, sound connections and good earth also - long shot - brake pedal switch connections or the switch itself faulty. Hugh from City of Glasgow

which years were fitted with feul pump+sender and which years are just feul sender thank you.
All 407's have a both a fuel pump and a fuel sender unit, without a fuel pump no fuel will get to the engine. A fuel sender just sends a signal to the fuel gauge to show how much fuel is in the tank, it doesn't send fuel as such. Mick from Portugal
Why not say what year your car is and whether it is petrol or diesel? For example the 2005 407 with 1.6 2 kitre HDi engines with Siemens pump do not have the combined fuel pump and sender unit you are referring to, they do not have a pump in the tank. There is a rubber bulb under the bonnet to prime the system during filter changes etc and for normal operation the suction side of the injection pump acts as a fuel lift pump to feed the high pressure side. .

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

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.
