Re: Multi function display

There is a procedure to be followed when you chance the battery unless you maintain a power source to the car. I suggest you search this forum for the procedure on how to shut down the BSI and restart it again. It may be your problem and worth a try.

Re: 406 90 HDI core plug

I done one maybe two plugs on the rear of the engine. It was a pig of a job and from memory i did it from underneath by removing some stuff. Not a nice job !!

Re: Engine temp to hot

Mine is doing the same intermittently for about a year but the engine is not overheating. I need to change the green sensor and take it from there. I read somewhere on this site where the earth wire on the back of the instrument cluster can come loose and cause this problem.

Re: Brake lines

You will need a special brake nut spanner as an open end one will slip. Its basically a ring spanner with a slot to slide over the pipe. Search under brake spanner wrench :)

Re: One door no longer triggers the interior lights

It's the contacts on the actuator and plug in beside the lock. You will have to take off the door card, peel back the door seal and remove some of the linkages to get to it. It should be obvious enough when you see it. It's a white plastic thing rectangular in shape.On mine the contacts had corroded...

Re: One door no longer triggers the interior lights

I had the same issue with a 1999 D9 and i took out the actuator on the door lock and cleaned the contacts with a nail file. It worked perfect for me after. There is a post somewhere on this.

Re: Pugfest 2016

We were there and had a lovely day. There wasn't many 406's there, they were like hen's teeth virtually non existent. There was one blue estate and one blue saloon parked in the coupe area and one black estate parked beside us in the general car park. While I was there from about 10:30 to 3:30 no 40...

Re: Pugfest 2016

Anyone want to pick a spot for the 406 Club to meet as it would be nice to meet a few people. I can't pick a spot as I don't know the area.

Try Gumtree as I got a nice Executive before Christmas, low mileage, basically one owner and reasonable price.

Re: Keys

Look after that key as it's not possible to get another key for the remote central locking. It is possible to get a key cut and chipped to start the car and use it to lock the car with the key but not with the remote. Have a look on ebay as it's possible to buy the little button covers or a blank ke...
