Peugeot Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Dear customer, thank you for choosing Justanswer. My name is***** would like to help you.
I am now dealing with your request and will report back in a few minutes in this chat.
There's not really much you can do, maybe you can try to warm the switch carefully with a hair dryer, so that the liquid in the switch evaporates. The reason for the error message is a short circuit caused by the liquid. This makes the signal from the switch to the control unit appear implausible.
If this does not help, the switch must be replaced. After the replacement, the fault can usually be reset without a workshop by disconnecting the battery.
I have a quick look at how complex it is to change the switch, if you can do it without a workshop. I reply in a few minutes.
The trim around the gear lever must be removed. This is only clamped according to the manual. It should be carefully levered up at the edges with a plastic wedge or a plastic lever. The entire switch can be lifted out with the cover. The switch is only clamped with visible latching lugs. And can be removed after pressing the latch.
I would be very happy about a rating with 5 stars over the star bar at the top of the page, without this rating the site operator does not pay us experts.
