Hi all. I have have a Peugeot Expert hdi 2.0 van that was working and starting fine. I parked it up before Christmas when it was raining, went to start it in the new year and it will not start. It`s cranking over fine but will not fire up, even with a little easy start. I had the RAC out, pump and glow plugs are okay but still no go. I had it taken to a garage but they were unable to get the computer to connect with my ecu. I had someone else look at it and they THINK it’s an ecu problem. Any advice would be great, or is it possible to buy a good used ecu and just swop it over? Are there people out there that could check and fix mine? I`d appreciate any help as I’m now £250 down and need to get back to work, thanks.
Exactly same thing happened to me this Christmas, turned out to be a corroded-through wire in the engine wiring loom. The RAC towed it to an auto-sparks and £140 incl vat fixed it :-) - Greg Thornton from Yorkshire
Same thing happend to me, had to keep bumping it down my road, ended up being the diesel pump 3 years and a lot of money later. - Mark Matthews from England

Mike Peers from England has sent in a question on the Peugeot Expert. Hi, my Peugeot Expert E7 cam-belt snapped because the main dealer didn’t change it on the service. They then repaired it for free and then it broke down and would not start. They put it on the diagnostic and said it’s the fuel pump which was done under warranty. Then it broke down again so they put another fuel pump on and yes it broke down again. This time said it could have been a dodgy wire, they got it going and it broke down again. Each time it broke down after the cam belt snapped it just stopped and wouldn’t start so they said it was the ECU. They changed that but it still won’t start, so now they are changing all four injectors at my cost. That should be done Xmas eve. I don’t think I should have to pay for injectors because it surely has something to do with the cam belt snapping in the first place? Up till that I have never had a problem with this car and have lost at least two thousand pounds earnings. Any thoughts on this nightmare? Many thanks. (E7 taxi)
Hello, the problem with fuel pumps can be a costly repair when done right, what normally happens with pump failure (usually brought on by miss fuel, running out of diesel a few times or just age) is that the internals of the pump bearings can break up into swarf and pollute the whole fuel system so replacing only one part ie injectors is futile as the fault will re occur. The correct procedure is remove and clean the fuel tank and fuel lines, replace the fuel filter, replace all injectors and the fuel pump! Very costly but if you put injectors in only, swarf will block them again in the near future as it will keep recirculating from other parts of the fuel system. You will normally see small swarf fragments that look like a tiny gold and silver glitter tint if you look in the fuel filter housing which is where most but not all of the swarf is stopped by the filter. The cambelt snap would not be directly related unless they had trouble starting it after the repair and the cranked it without starting for prolonged periods which will be running the pump dry. - Martin (Master technician 20+ years) from England

Hi there. The sensors on the side door of my husband`s Peugeot Expert van are showing up constantly that the door is not closed properly - but it is closed tight. At other times the door will not close properly. I`m hoping to get this fixed and do a few other repairs for him as a surprise. I`d appreciate any help in this regard? Many thanks.

I am trying to find the airbag module on my Peugeot Expert van as it is disconnected?
You will find the air bag ECU underneath the floor carpet in a recess in the panel. You will need to take the passenger seat out to lift the carpet. You may well find the ECU has water damage as people tend to wash the rubber floor mats and the water finds a way through to the underside of the mat. - Dave from England

I have just got a new Peugeot Expert van and I am trying to pair my Sony Xperia s to the hands free. I have tried with the engine running, key to first position and with just the radio on. My phone and the van find each other and the screen in the van says " accept pairing" but once I select yes it asks for authentication code. I have typed in 1234, the van thinks about it for a few seconds then tells me pairing failed. I have no code set on the phone. Please help?

Hi, I left my Peugeot Expert diesel standing for 3 days and now can’t get it started. The engine turns over well. The weather is mild, it had been raining, could it be a faulty computer?
Check the rubber ring on the back of the fuel regulator. If missing, replace as it takes in air over a period of time causing loss of power and eventually it won’t start on key, will start on run. - John McMenamin from Northern Ireland

I have a Peugeot Expert and the headlights are coming on randomly in bright daylight. I turn them to side lights for a while and then try to turn them off and sometimes they stay off or they may come on again. Why is it doing this? (professional)
I have this problem. Local dealer says it requires a new "COM2000" module, which is basically the whole set of sticks round the steering wheel, and is expensive. Apparently reconditioned ones are available, but still several 100 euros. I’d be interested to know if PSA have fixed this problem in latest models, because it is enough to stop me buying another Expert - Charlie C from France

On my Peugeot Expert why is the N/S rear tyre wearing like this 1.6 3.0 2.0? I`ve never had a vehicle with a tyre wear like this before. Motability aren’t really interested. The vehicle isn’t even quite 2 years old yet. My first WAV on motability and it`s an awful vehicle to ride in as the ramp which is attached to the tail gate rattles away and the tailgate moves with such, I hear a lot of road noise. I cannot hear people up front and the same goes for them. There are no rear air con vents so people up front freeze to enable the air to reach me at the rear as I have severe lung issues. The vehicle at 18,000 had the Cam Cover Gasket fail and to date the vehicle has done 21,000. The engine is only a 1.6 90 brake horsepower, hence has no go so it works at full capacity when me, my chair and 2 other people are in the vehicle which is most times. My chair weighs 113kg on it`s own. The vehicle is only doing 26 / 27 miles per gallon and I was told by Constables the Converters that it would do 40 to the gallon. Can anyone advise me as I`m battling away with Motability Technical at present? (Adaptation WAV on motability)

Hi, my remote key fob for my Peugeot Expert is not working. I changed the battery but still no joy. The rubber buttons you push are worn so maybe it’s that? It’s the key with 2 buttons on the thin edge as opposed to the fat side. Any thoughts or ideas please? Thanks.

Hi, when I started the engine of my Peugeot Expert this morning on the display in the instrument panel, where it usually shows Oil okay, it just showed OIL --. I checked the engine oil level but it was okay. When I consulted the owner’s manual this error says it is a malfunction in the oil level sensor. Is it an electronic fault or does the sensor have to be replaced? Thanks for any help offered. Regards. (Leisure Tepee 2.0)

I took my Peugeot Expert`s battery off to charge it and after reconnecting it I’m having a problem with the lights. The lights are coming on on their own, even if the ignition is switched off. Sometimes they are coming on after the vehicle has been parked up and left for a while. When the lights come on they are very dim, they are not as bright as sidelights or headlights more like parking lights, but always both lights front and rear. What can I do about this?
