Re: Peugeot 406 Coupe EV conversion

Really nice reading about your progress :D

Just wondering: are you already driving with it? (Because you are fitting a Webasto...)

Re: Fuel pump cover removal

I fabricated a special tool for it. Making the tool took two hours of work, then the removal of the lid was done in about 30 seconds. Here are a few photo's of the tool. It is really simple yet very firm. The bar is about 1 meter, good for giving enough torque. The slots in the metal hooks are cut i...

Re: Air bag fault / warning

Here is a diagram that shows IC11A, D and E:
Component CV00.jpg
Suddenly, IC11A has 16 pins?? (it had 6 pins in the previous diagram :? )

Anyway, seems like IC11D and E connect the air bag ECU (6570) with the COM2000 unit (CV00).

6565 is the "driver airbag module" (in the steering wheel).

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...
