My Peugeot 407SW on motion shows exhaust system defective warning light and after some few kilometres driving I parked to buy something and when I returned to start the engine, it only rolls the shaft but wount start. So I checked the current to the starting coil and fuel pump. But no supply at all to those points. The dash board lighting all displays but no supply to those points, yet no fuse is found blown. I have tried all mechanics but they couldn't fix it. So one of them suggests I use the second key on it that it could be the key problem. Please anybody with a better suggestions?

Helow. My 407 has a starting problem. It starts after a number of atempts and requires to be revved up so it wont die out. Biggest problem is after driving for a while, if you switch off the engine it wont start again, it cranks bt does not fire up until it completely cools down (after hours) which in many cases is usually the following day... someone please help.

I am having a problem with my power steering cutting out. this happens when in heavy traffic after a fairly long journey and the temperature gets over the 90 degree mark the power steering warning light comes on and the stop warning . I have had the power steering fluid changed and the pump checked. after having rested the car for a short while on re-starting every thing works ok until the temperature rises again, although if I have a clear journey every thing is ok. could anyone help me with this. it only happens under the above circumstances.

My 2004 407 2-2 sport has developed a burning smell. the nearest I can get to the smell is the power steering unit which gets hot to the touch after only a few miles. However the car steers ok and fluid level is above max. No indications pop up on dash board. Any ideas before I have to take to dealer (costly for a pensioner)

Hi Guys. Problem with my heater, blower, aircon system. Works properly for about 30 minutes but then it's all noise and no wind. I can hear the fan blowing 10 to the dozen, but nothing is coming out of the vents. If i switch the system off for about 10 minutes, it works again for another half an hour. Any ideas? Thanks.

Car starts up fine however when i try to put it into hear nothing happens and it just revs when i try to accelerate. Turning it off and on again, sometimes 2 or 3 times, it starts to work. If its in Drive it starts to move forward like it would normally if you had your foot of the break but any acceleration is just reving the engine.
