Re: need advoce maf sensor

It's definitely the MAF - his car runs perfectly with mine fitted and consistently runs two distinct versions of badly with either of the two sensors he has. Ok, so clearly that is the problem :D Having read the threads on here, at first I thought it might be the EGR but you needed to use 3k revs t...

Re: need advoce maf sensor

Problem is many owners have reported equivalent parts just don't work properly. Ah, ok, so the quality varies... To be honest, i've never felt the need to replace my MAF sensor. Currently my 2.0 HDI is at 575 k km (360 k mi), bought it at 275 k km (172 k mi). I have cleaned the sensor once by disma...

Re: Crank pulley bolt problem

Big washers and replace pins with small nuts and bolts. I did that on the left hand side, when the pin went, about 2 years ago. It was half an hour of fiddling. The small nut is hard to keep in place behind the brake shoe while tightening the bolt. A year later the right hand side pin decided it wa...

Re: Hi from a first time 406 owner!

Welcome! Nice purchase! :D The 110 HDI is rock solid, you may well be able to double the mileage (mine is at 360 k miles) can confirm that at silly speeds it still rides fairly composed, 75 at 3000rpm is going to take some getting used to That seems a lot, mine (manual 5 gear) does around 2500 rpm a...

Sorry just to clarify the current car doesn't have the keypad. The ECU I bought spare came from a car than had an key code.
The ECU will need the keypad.

You might try to hack the immobilization codes out of the ECU EEPROM. Inspiration may be found here.

Re: Immobiliser bypass help

Do you see an orange key icon light up on the dash? Not sure for the '98 models, but on the later models for sure the ECU is matched (paired) with the BSI box and a set of keys. They must be replaced together. In your case i think the keys are not coded, since you have a PIN pad. Easiest solution is...

Re: sluggish starting

I had the same issue. It turned out to be the starter motor.

Like you it turned over slowly so i suspected the battery at first. But that was not the problem.

My previous starter motor lasted for 2 years (~ 80 k miles)

Re: Fuel filter conspiracy theorist

So, yesterday it was time to replace the rocker cover gasket. Since the last oil change I covered 40 k miles, so it would be a good opportunity to check the sludge and gunk that might have built up, as requested: I'd love to have a nose under the rocker cover/sump and see what the engine looks like ...

Re: Peugeot 406 Coupe EV conversion

I really think it is a timer. 12.2 Volt is not a depleted battery. I've seen lower voltages on my battery, but the timeout is always around those 30 minutes (on my model, that is).

Re: Peugeot 406 Coupe EV conversion

You'd have to simulate "engine running" condition. I have never seemed to find a quick way of doing this. It would be very useful to be able to do this, because after 30 minutes the BSI computer goes into "Economy mode", and the only way to get out of it is to actually start the engine. 30 minutes i...

Re: 406 2.0 hdi Cambelt change mileage?

Thanks both for the very helpful replies. You're welcome :) I had been wondering whether the combined cost of the belt changes etc and the advisories was going to be more than the car is worth - guess I'll soon find out! At a certain age, filling up the fuel tank might be enough to double the value...

Re: 406 2.0 hdi Cambelt change mileage?

It is 96,000 miles / 10 years under standard conditions (80,000 miles / 5 years under harsh conditions).

This is the document from Peugeot Servicebox.

Oh! Mine doesn't (version 4.0.2),
That explains, i have version 4.1.0 .
I'd guess a build code of around 7500
Exactly the number i entered :cheesy:
