Peugeot Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
First of all my ignition stopped working but as the 307 is a 2003 the cost of a new barrel/reader and harness was too high, the Peugeot dealer wanted £400 plus vat. The only way to get it going again was to have a push start button fitted. This worked without any problems so I thought, then I had a braking fault flash up on the display but no fault reading machine can detect an error in fact there are zero faults but every time I start the car up I get three beeps and a braking fault message. The garage doesn't know what to do as there computer says there is nothing wrong but obviously there is something amiss. What can I try next to clear this annoying message?
Disconnected the battery for 24 hours to wipe any memory but still the braking fault flashes up but if I don't set the clock and put up with it flashing it does not appear but the bleeping sounds.
I'll continue to wait as I really need help with what I have posted. Thank you.
The bypass was removed as soon the fault was discovered by the garage and the fault still appeared and no ecu codes so the bypass of the ignition was ruled out as the problem. The complaining???? It was a question on a 'ask a question' website looking for a logical answer as Peugeot are known for there vast array of electrical problems. As this will be classed as an MOT failure now, I thought someone could provide a suitable solution.
You never mentioned the bypass had been removed in your original question. It was made to look as though the bypass was the cause of the fault.
If the bypass has been removed does that mean you have replaced the barrel and key?
Depending on which lamp it is means it might not be an automatic MOT failure. The ABS light and brake fluid level are a failure but others might not be.
Hi. No lamp lights up which is the strangest thing just the beeping and a warning message on the multi display only on start up. ABS is working fine and fluid level is good, if something was faulty it would give me a reference point to start from.
Yes it is a momentary thing after 2 seconds it doesn't appear again. Just an annoying error message which could put people off from buying it in the near future.
