Re: 2.0 HDi 110hp Bad cold start

All GP showing the result of 5,8-6 Ohms. Shouldn't it show between 1 or 2 ohms for maximum result? New GP was changed about four months ago. Yes, it should be around 1 ohms. But many cheap multimeters cannot reliably measure such low values. If you want to be sure that the glow plugs work, you can ...

My HDi 90 used to eat TPSs.
I've never had to replace mine. I do spray it with electric contact cleaner spray regularly (~ every 2 years).

Cheapest one I could find in a 30 second search: € 13,77 incl. shipping - for 406 2.0 HDi & 2.2 HDi.

The 1920.9W seems for the petrol models, while the 1920X1 is for diesel.
Maybe not, looks like both are indeed the same: both OEM numbers are listed at the part shown here: https://www.ebay.co.uk/p/Sensor-Throttl ... 3017021256 .

They look identical but are these slight number differences critical?

I would advise sticking to the 1920X1 for your HDI.

How is it some old 406's run for hundreds of thousands of miles with no major engine worries and others, like mine, do 106000 miles and need a head gasket?
Mine has now 627 k kms (390 k miles) and has never needed a new head gasket.
Your 106 k seems really quick. It was not chip-tuned?

Re: Peugeot 406 Coupe EV conversion

Well f***k RPM indicator. I started to assemble the car without it operating for now. I was thinking you might have blown up some circuit in the engine ECU. I attached page 36-37 of the big "Bosch Motronic ME7.4.6" encyclopedia (you already have it in full). The pages show how the crankshaft positi...

That's right, I lived in it for a couple of years but t'wife hated it, too big, too much traffic, no parking for her classes etc. I kept it going for years but it was deteriorating and I just couldn't find the time to fix everything that needed doing. Glad you got rid of it. When you hate it, it be...

Well done :) Did you manage to find a set "with the remote and immo chip"? Or just a complete set from a donor car?

I’m considering adding an intercooler so this also helps the pipe layout for me.
Here is a diagram of the extra plumbing you'd need:

Re: 807 OBD Pinout

Here is an overview of items that may be of interest:

Note that each item is a high-level diagram that is in itself clickable. Details of specific electrical parts will appear only if one clicks further, into the boxes shown in the high-level diagram. So it is a bit of a PITA :(
