Re: Peugeot 406 2.0 HDI 90HP, cold start problem

Hi, welcome. My initial thoughts were injectors - I must admit I'm surprised you changed just 3, not the full set - I bad injector will certainly affect the starting in the morning Maybe change the CTS, it's not too expensive and relatively easy to change - a faulty one will give all sorts of proble...

Re: Undecided

The rear door locks sticking is common, one of my rear doors was stuck once but perseverance with the key, lots of locking/unlocking and gently banging the door around the lock area eventually freed it - it was fine ever since. Rear calipers are also common - sometimes it's cheaper to find a new set...

Re: hope its going to be worth it !!

Yeah, its easy to overlook. Without the throttle clip in place, or if there is slack in the cable - you will only ever get part throttle no matter how hard you plant your foot in the carpet......
Its the first thing I check when doing 406 diagnostics on the laptop.

Re: 406 estate, heater blower just stopped this morning.

I've said it before, there are only 3 usual suspects for a failed blower motor... 1 - Resistor under the passenger dash, a £20 eBay part but check the wires first as they sometimes melt... 2 - Ignition leads behind the barrel, also a £20 eBay part, can sometimes be diagnosed by wiggling the key in t...

Re: Data has been deleted from BSI eeprom

When my friend David has similar issues with his car, he sorted all the faults by lifting the carpet, removing 2 gallons of water and removing the corroded connector and simply* soldering the wires together... Initially the headlights were constantly on, the wipers and horn were not working, and the...

Re: hope its going to be worth it !!

That's not too bad, and all the things you have replaced are things that should last a good few years..
I can't remember about the get up and go issue - have you checked the throttle cable clip is in place and taken up any slack?

I wonder what that car cost when it was new?
I'm surprised it went for any amount over £1500 to be honest - I know it's a beauty but still...

Re: Odd idle speed behaviour

Yeah, sounds to me the clutch switch isn't connected - I had the same symptoms on an old hdi90, after I unplugged the clutch switch.....
Is cruise control working?

Re: 2.2 hdi DW12 Issue

Hi, it could be the turbo, as if the DPF has been blocked for some time then its a chance it has clogged completely and the back pressure has ruined the turbo seals..?? Maybe the EGR is blocked? Blocked fuel filter? If you are local to Bournemouth I'm happy to have a peek ( I have the Peugeot diagno...

Hi, welcome to the club :cheesy:
I may be wrong, but I think there are only 5 or 6 Hpi models left on the road.....

It's a good car though, could you sort the lock yourself and keep the car in the family..?

Re: Roof Console

I've got one, just dug it out of my shed....

It does look different to yours as my buttons are not the same - this one is from a 2004 exec.

Maybe you can post a picture of the back of yours and I'll check the connections are the same.
