Hi..there apoligies for the delay...i see you have listed 5 questions without an answer so not sure why thats happened..but i will try my best to help..
Can you explain exactly the reason for replacing the battery?
Did you do the 3 minute rule before disconnection?
Any warnings/messages up on the dash with this fault?
recently purchased vehicle, been running great, coverd 1000 miles since, frosty morning Wed, wont start, power drain, sealed for life battery dated 2008, thought replacement battery! new battery fitted Thurs morning, car engine turning over no prob, but not firing up, there is a spanner symbol showing 10, press again it shows 7300 which i assume is next service interval, hope this helps....
Hi..there thanks for your responce..
Peugeot/Citreons are fairly sensitive to battery changes/jump starting - if the correct procedure isnt followed then you can run the risk of corrupting the bsi software or loosing key coding where the vehicle doesnt immobiliser simply wont shut off hence the engine wont start... Try the 3min rule again and then follow the reconnection procedure below..failing that the only way forward from that is to get it diagnosed to exactly whats gone wrong the likely hood the immobiliser isnt picking up the keys or a problem has surfaced in the bsi due to the battery fault.power surge or spike..the spanner symbol/orange wrench is a service light so dont worry about that at the moment..
The following procedure is for reinstalling the battery connection unless told otherwise by Peugeot or Product service. Failure to follow this procedure may result in damage to the BSI’s embedded software during reconnection.
BSI start up
So as above give that a try - failing that the only alternative is the diagnostic route to see whats happened if the BSI has been damaged or lost key sync..I do hope this helps
Hi Robert, thank you for youre reply, i wont be able to try youre recommendation till Sat when Im back home, thank you again I will up date you ASAP, Graham.
Hi.Graham...yep thats no problem... give a try anyway..failing that i suspect the next port of call will be the diagnostic route..if prefered you should find somebody locally with specific diagnostic equipment for peugeot to avoid the dealer..somebody with upto date peugeot planet software too plug into the car to see whats currently happened.if you have another key for that car then give that a try too..aswell as check all your fuses/main fuses etc just to be sure..but let me know how its goes anyway..Regards Robert
