Hello and Welcome -

My name is MIKE - Im happy to help / advise you on this...

You dont mention the mileage or the service history etc of the vehicle - but this is not an unknown issue at all on these models..

The light will come on at average intervals - telling you the system needs servicing - generally this should be around every 80k miles... but if its coming on more regularly or at odd intervals, the system needs a diagnostic check - this is usually done at a Peugeot dealer - though any garage that has the correct equipment can do this for you.

Depending on the exact version you have - it likely just needs the DPF system cleaning -and the ELYOS fluid filling - this is a special fluid that is injected into the cars system to clean as you drive - over time it empties and needs re filling. That is one reason the lamp will come on -

So either way you need to get it checked as above to get this sorted for you.

If there is anything more by all means get back to me and we can carry on...
