Does your car have sat nav or it is older style displays, like 2004-2006? If so, it is a common problem due to heating issue. 2004-2006 displays can't handle heating, so if it is blank - it is impossible to fix, you need to replace it. If it is large, new model screen with sat nav, unfortunately I`m not sure then, but I would strongly suggest to take it off, check all connections first. Dew from Essex

Hi, I have a 407 2;0L GT HDI on a 57 plate. It is a nice car with all the toys built in. I had a problem with the individual climate control flaps not working. I had them fixed last year, it's quite a big job and they now work well. The problem I have now is I can`t get the air con. to blow ice cold air. I have had the gases done and it worked fine for that day. I also had it checked to make sure it wasn't leaking the gas and was told if it was leaking they would not have re gassed it. Long story short, can anyone tell me why it won't blow ice cold all of the time? Thanks in advance, A. MacDonald

Hiya, I have recently purchased a 407 KG05 EHW though a private sale and have had problems already. on the day of purchase, I lost all power steering and it went very heavy. my local garage ran a computer test on it and it was showing faults with 2 speed sensors which have been replaced. However the steering fault is still there and they are now saying it could be the power steering pump. He has advised that my car (KG05 EHW) is on the cusp of the pump needing to be coded and calibrated by a Peugeot dealer but he is not sure, as the year before, he describes as 'plug and play'. Can you advise on the pump please as to whether it needs to be programmed or can we have (possibly a reconditioned) one fitted? faults showing still on the computer read out are as follows ESP / ASR disarming switch (inactive) Status of handbrake (inactive) but the handbrake is working mechanically status of steering wheel angle sensor (not operational) steering wheel angle status (not calibrated) Status of gearbox torque converter (not available) faults showing are names as C1135 and C1388...... I am really at the end of my tether now and need a safe car to drive, can you help. Already Tried: my local garage but i'm afraid to go ahead with their advice as they are unsure, (see message)

How does one remove the rear tail light assembly in a 407 Station Wagon (Estate)?
Remove the luggage space side panels and undo the large nut holding the rear light cluster in place. The whole unit then comes out to gain access to the rear lights. Ronald from Spain
Just an update on my previous email and a response to the person from Buckinghamshire. I have had the most appaling service from Peugeot concerning the radio's lack of TA from the BBC and no Traffic Information. I had to raise hell on earth to get them to admit the Traffic Info was not working (the screen was blank!) having been told 'that was it, Peugeot technical do not want to know'! Eventually after 4 visits to the dealership a software update cured the Traffic Info problem but the radio still does not work with TA when on a national BBC station. A letter to the UK MD was not even acknowledged, more phone calls made with promises that they are dealing with it it and 3 months down the line again nothing from Peugeot. This is a brand new car. Peugeot customer service is pathetic and a disgrace. Touch wood I have not had the problem with the car veering to left (yet) and I dread any further problems. You have my full sympathy over your problems as I doubt if they will want to do anything under the warranty without a full scale battle. If you wish to contact me direct for any support please say so if you respond. I will forward my email address etc. so we can chat. Bob Bob from Surrey

The dashboard says gas tank is open (it isn't) the radio console tells me the rear glass is open (it keeps popping open) the radio stations keep changing, the console flashes that the rear brake light is faulty, the speed control is faulty, the fog lamp is faulty - there is nothing wrong with these items as the car has just ben checked. Any ideas ????

I may be worng here but I remember that when I unlocked my Peugeot 407 with the remote, the courtesy light and the centre console would light up before I got into the car and show (on cold mornings) the ’risk of ice’ message. Two days ago, after refuelling, I noticed the courtesy light lights up but the centre console display no longer does. Is my memory failing or have I pressed something inadvertently? (Zenith)

My Peugeot 407`s power steering has gone light and very sensitive at high speed, it is very noticeable. The car has had new front discs front of side wheel bearing and near side track rod end fitted in the last few 4 weeks. Any idea what the problem might be? (2.0L 136)

My Peugeot 407 starts and runs fine until you get to a steep hill when all of a sudden the engine loses power, even changing down a gear does not help. It feels like the old diesels when the govener slows the engine down. The engine management light does not come on when this happens or any other light. You switch the engine off and re start it and then it is fine until you get to another hill and there are plenty here. In short the engine loses power when the inlet manifold has more pressure in it when pulling hard, as if a pressure sensor might be faulty. I will change the filter next week just in case anyway. The previous owner has fitted a new turbo a few monthe ago. On a flat road the car runs like magic. Any ideas please? (2.0 hdi)

My Peugeot 407 2.0 ltr tdi loses power when climbing slightest hills even on motorways. It also has particulate fluid level low reading and anti pollution warning lights coming up on the dashboard. Are these faults related? The car doesn’t seem to be in limp mode as some suggested as the car will still do upwards of 70 mph and all gears are working and revs higher than 2000 rpm. Any ideas please?.
Sounds like the particulate filter is to blame. Ivor Mac from Devon
Hi there, I’m also having the same issue. My agent told me to change the throttle body, which I did change spending almost 500 USD, but the problem is continuing to occur. When I switch off the engine and then switch on it goes off. Intially I got the same error on the display and the engine light on the dash board, but still my Peugeot agent wasn’t able to identify the problem. Now their next target is to change my petrol filter, which will be another 300 USD. I have changed all the filters including the petrol filters. Please someone help me.

Replace your inlet pressure sensor at the inlet manifold. Then use PPS to clear fault. This is solve your problem. Kheng Yuen from Malaysia

My Peugeot 407 was driving perfectly until it started switching off while driving. It starts after a while and then drives perfectly again without a single misfire. The switching off has now become more regular (at least 5 times a day) and at times it takes a while to restart and drive normally. My mechanic had it diagnosed and it showed that my coil pack needed replacing. I had it replaced and it worked for a day or 2 until back to normal. Diagnostics now show that I need another ECU (engine control unit). My mechanic said that the ecu feeds spark to the coil pack and that`s the fault. Can anyone kindly let me know if it`s really the case before I go ahead and replace the ecu? Many thanks.
Whenever you replace the ignition coil, you must replace the spark plugs too. They go as a set cause the coil will short circuit the plugs. After that, ask them to clean your throttle body. This should solve your problem. Kheng Yuen from Malaysia
