Do you have any warning lights on? Have you tried to connect a code reader to read the fault codes?

Engine management and battery light remain on until i try to start ot then the engine management light goes out and the battery light remains on
Expert:  CarDoc replied 7 months ago.

Starting issues can be due to many reasons such as crank sensor, fuel delivery, air intake etc. I would advise to connect a fault code reader to see if there are any fault codes stored.

Which would be great if i had 1. As I'm not a mechanic I don't have one.

You can either buy a cheap one or get a local garage to connect one and read the codes. Peugeot cars can go very wrong electrically.
