    I have a Peugeot 306 GTI from year 2000, and my electrical windows also stopped working today, both of them (front) simultaneously.

    There is a buzzing/clicking noise when i try to use the buttons, sounds kind of like a "summer" or what it's called... Have also checked the fuses, they look okay. The light in the buttons is lit alright.

    Will try opening the door to follow the cables.

It sounds like a power supply problem. I can't see all 4 motors broken.
First how does the switch "feel" No buttons loose?
Does it illuminate when you switch sidelights on?
If that's ok
I would gain access to the master switch on the drivers door.
I would think you have to remove the door panel and armrest I can't remember for sure, but it doesn't take a lot .
Check and make sure all the multiplugs are connected first of all.
Make sure all the terminals in the plugs are fully "home"
If there is nothing obvious i would follow the loom to where it exits the door and goes back into the car and check for damage.
Check for ANY other electrical equipment not working, if so go back to your handbook and re-check which fuse it goes through.
Also, if this problem has occurred after a recent repair, I suggest you return to the repairer.

Check the rubber tube which goes between the drivers door and the lower 'A' pillar, this contains wires which control windows, central locking etc. and are prone to the wires breaking inside due to the opening and closing of the door. often this needs replacing and can be a source of quite a few electrical niggles.

One more thing you can check is if the switches dont work, Peugeots have that problem that the switches loose connection in the contact point inside the switches and replacement is nessesary.
It can also be the wiring connection socket located under the middle console that has in some way been pulled apart that causes the missing connection. Its rare that the window motors die and 100% not them all, so the problem is not in the doors, thou it can be the wiring between the doors and the body that causes the problem because they are constructed wrong, making the wires brake.

    Does anyone know the color codes used. My window is down and it's definitely the switch. Until I can get it in for repair I would like to roll the window up again by bridging out the appropriate wires on the connector block. At least I wouldn't be so paranoid about it being broken into then.

Rear windows wont work on me back to fuse can u helpy 306 peugeot convertable as there is no power to them so i need to trace live wir

Hi Steve
Connect a 30 Amp fuse onto Battery + (Safety)
Clip a long wire onto the other side of the Fuse.
Run this out to the Rear Window Motor wire.
See if the Motor runs freely without jamming or blowing the fuse.
So... the Motor will be Good or Bad??
Use a 12v test light. Connect one end to Chassis Ground.
Use the sharp pin end to check your wire back to fuse.
Or Start at Fuse.
This should help narrow down where th fault is
Good Luck

Replacing rear number plate bulb peugeot 306 hdi estate car

Pop off the clear plastic lenses. Replace bulbs, pop back on lenses. They are T10 or 501 or w5w, all mean the same thing.
I replaced mine with LED bulbs, same as front sidelights, brake lights in tailgate window and interior. If you use LED's you must put them in the right way round, if not working unplug and turn 180 degrees.

I have a peugeot 306 lx 2001. electric window not working?

if the right door window works: pull out the switch for the power windows, and try to change the switches between them, to see if the problem comes from there, if it works replace the bad switch, if still not working take out the door panel and take a look at the wiring to the motor, if all good then the motor is the problem. but it usually comes from the switch.

Problem with electric window passenger side peugeot 306 1998

Very common on the 306, the door wring from the inside of the door jar into the side of the dash board gets frayed and then the windows stop working or work intermitently, does the wiondo go up and down when the door is all the way open? try it and let me know.

Most likely it will be the wiring, please get back to me if you are unsure what I mean.

Peugot 306 indicator noise and wfront electric windows

hey kempster_rob the problem is in the wiring between the doors and the body, the wiring is short and is constructed wrong, so when you after 3000 openings and closings the wires brakes and either loose connection or makes shortcuts between the different cables causing fuse blows and disrupted working electrical system. Solution is to open the isolation around the cables and either repair them or displace them, its possible to buy a repair kit at the peugeot dealer
