Fault Help

Common or potential faults associated with the French & Italian range.


Having worked with our chosen marques for quite some time now, it stands to reason that we have come across a whole plethora of faults, failures and potential automotive hiccups. Sometimes they are quite clearly due to a lack of maintenance. Others are due to poor design. Then there is just bad luck.

Here follows a list (in no particular order) of some of the more common occurrences we have encountered. Included are our comments and/or opinions as to how 'we' have dealt with the situation or believe would or could be an effective solution. Our ramblings are by no means a substitute for competent professional diagnosis and should be regarded as bodhi for interested parties.

Peugeot 207 won't start

Thursday, 12 January 2017  |  Stu

Affecting: Peugeot 207 all models

Intermittent non starting, not turning over or illumination of steering, ABS or engine warning lights, speedo not working and lines on the odometer instead of the mileage being displayed. Can be caused by ABS computer blocking the immobiliser code being transmitted to the engine computer, also the speedo fault and steering warning appears because the ABS computer can't transmit speed information. A new ABS computer can be over £700, we have fitted quite a few used ABS ECUs and there is a repair solution for around £450 including VAT and labour.
