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.

Re: Wiring Advice

It's a D8 so there won't be anything on sedre. This is the only diagram I've ever seen Are you sure? In my copy of sedre i can even select a 405. There are 2 menu items called '406' in my sedre, the first shows only one choice: '406' (with a picture that looks like an old style D8), the second show...

Re: Wiring Advice

Do you have a Build Code/DAM number? With that i can look up the diagram in SEDRE.

If you cannot find your DAM number you can also post me your VIN number, i can look it up in Service Box for you.

PSACOM vs PP2000

As i understand, PSACOM is a new software/hardware set that is replacing the PP2000/Lexia combination. Does anyone have experience with it?

Re: power loss and oil leaks in RHZ engine

Seems you got all the gremlins at the same time :( No it is certainly not normal and not an optional setting. Optional is (on soms models) that all doors lock when you start driving, ie at some speed. My coupe once did the same and had to be towed. Since then i learnt the habit of garagists of openi...

Re: power loss and oil leaks in RHZ engine

As suggested earlier, looks like my cooling fan has stopped working and the mechanic needs more time than is available to me for repair. I need to get from lisbon to London (in about 3 800Km legs). I'm told that motorway driving should be ok and that any overheating problems will arise if/when i si...
