Some times when I go to pull away from traffic lights the engine will not accelerate pumping the accelerator pedal makes not difference, sometime it will clear on its own, other times you have to turn the ignition off and back on again. What could be the fault that is causing this problem?

Hi, I'm experiencing problems with my cooler fan. It suddenly started rotating on a cold engine and continues to rotate throughout the drive,it runs for roughly 30 seconds after ignition is switched off. I've had the temp sensor changed and the main fan relay but still no change. My question is this,does anyone else have this problem,or had this problem and how was it fixed. Kind regards.

using the key (not the remote) to open & close my 407 2010 won't operate the central lock any advice ? thanks

Answers

Ron, several modern cars that use remote control to open.. keyless entry... will not operate the central locking when the key IS used. If you know that your key entry used to open all doors, then there may be a problem. Wifey has a Clio and the key will only allow entry to the vehicle via passenger door.. that's normal, fella.

Answer this question

Nick Rous, Oxfordshire

Peugeot 407

I have a 407SW registered in 2009, and I would like to check and correct the calibration of some of the instruments. There are three particular problems: 1. The mileage on the trip computer always reads less than the correct distance, and can be erratic. One time the car was stationery, and the reading jumped from 31 to 33miles in one second. 2. The mph is wildly wrong. The first time I drove it (6 miles on uncrowded roads) it read 13mph. I can cycle it quicker than that! 3. The SatNav does not recognsie our postcode. It has been inputted three times in case we made a mistake, but it is still dumping us more than 5 miles from home. If anyone has any ideas that could help, it would be much appreciated. Many thanks Nick

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?

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)
