Re: FAP cleaning

I've not heard any feedback from this kind of service, so I cannot really comment other than it may be worth squirting some kind of lubricant on the 4 bolts that hold the FAP on - they can shear off.

Please let us know what you think of the service, good and bad, just for future reference 8)

Re: Car key

Peugeot is different. You are not programming the key, you are programming the car to accept the new key/chip. A new chip is available from eBay ( ID46 I think ) for a small amount, and some locksmiths can copy the information from your old chip onto the new chip. If this fails to work, then PP2K wi...

Re: Obd / obd2 port

Hi. Some of the cheaper scanners will only read the engine ECU. The more expensive ones will read most of the ECUs ( snap-on etc ) However if you want to properly delve into all of the ECUs, and check parameters, create replacement keys, and basically do everything the Peugeot main stealer can do, t...

Re: 2003 2.2 HDI wont start, engine ecu not reply

Hi, welcome to the club. Your English is very good - better than some English people..! I suspect that the in-tank pump may have failed, you should hear it every time, even with a warm engine - it also has its own fuse. Sometimes it can be persuaded to work by gently hitting the fuel tank with your ...

Re: sill drain holes?

I drilled a hole in each end of my sills, to drain the water out.... No issues with rusting or anything, but the 'sloshing' noises were doing my head in... I couldn't tell you if there were any rust issues since as I sold the car a couple of years later. I guess there is no harm in fitting a removab...

Re: Electric window voltages

All the window switches run through the drivers switch - if the drivers window switch is disconnected then non of the windows will open even using the individual switches... Try using the passenger window switch while the divers door is open, or partly open, as if there is damage to the loom inside ...

And the ECU should be the same, the only real differences are in the BSI menu regarding window dropping, auto close windows etc - easily rectified with PP2K.

Re: My introduction and any chance of help!!!

Okay. Those connectors are a pain, and can easily corrode and cause issues once water has got to them. Doggy had a similar issue with the locks on his car, and by using Peugeot Planet he identified the faulty lock and just replaced it - job done. I feel that going to a Peugeot dealer will get the sa...

Re: My introduction and any chance of help!!!

The car thinks that one of the doors is open, therefore not locking the car... Changing the door locks may fix it - but I'm not sure how to identify which door is playing up. Maybe removing the central locking fuse will allow you to lock each door manually ( like the old days ) Once the locks are so...

Re: Turbo on 2.0 HDI 406

A remap is the way to go... It's the most cost effective option, but I believe if you use injectors from a 110hdi then you'll gain a little more.. You can't increase the turbo boost by any other means, as although it's moved mechanically, it's still controlled by the ECU, a remap could increase the ...

Re: Clutch switch

It's at the top of the clutch pedal - I think it's a brown connector. It's there to deactivate cruise control, and also to stabilise the engine revs when changing gear.. You may find the performance of the car is a little bit more spritely when it's unplugged, at the cost of occasion spluttering whe...
