Question about Peugeot 405

Open Question

Hi , I have a peugeot partner 1.6 diesel on an 07 plate . I have an intermittent fault with the speedo , which numerous times during the day will drop to zero . This is accompanied by a slight loss of acceleration/power . Sometimes it lasts a few seconds , sometimes 5 minutes or more . Then it will just kick back in again and I will have full power . Is this likely to be a speed sensor problem , or a bad connection / earth ? Many thanks

SOURCE: speedo and abs light on bmw 5 series

I've had the same problem twice on my 1999 528. The problem is your ABS module. (Bosch 5.7 to be exact.) The failure mode is temperature sensitive and shows up after driving. To test this, turn off the car, get a can of freeze spray and cool down the module. Inverting a can of compressed air used for computer cleaning works too. Give it a healthy freeze, then start up the car again. If the lights are out, then you know your problem. 
All sorts of things don't work when the module is bad. Speedo, windshield washers only give you one speed, fuel gauge drifts back and forth, cruise control,  check engine lights, airbag lights .... and so on, you get the picture, basically anything connected to the computer. My new (great) mechanic calls this the BMW christmas tree. 
You can either replace the module with a new one from the dealer, very expensive, or get it rebuilt. There are a number of rebuilders out there, so take your pick. I've used ModuleMaster in the past and they've been great. $300 and works like a charm. Google them to find their web site, and good luck.

SOURCE: 2000 Audi A3 1.8T rough idle / car shaking on acceleration

it honestly could be your sway bars or a track bar in between the tires. as far as the lack of power it could be your fuel filter being clogged or dirty

SOURCE: 2002 Mercury Sable-shakes with acceleration

You describe this as an acceleration problem however, if the car does throw a check engine light it should be recorded in system memory so it can be pulled by scanning with and OBDII scanner. It sounds as if the car is being starved for fuel on acceleration. Check the fuel lines for kinks as well as check the fuel pressure. The problem could be a faulty fuel pump that has yet to completely die.

SOURCE: Power loss in 2004 Corolla Verso D-4D T2 at speed

You might want to check the MAF sensor(Mass Air Flow) and clean it with MAF/MAP cleaner. I am also kind of puzzled with this problem as I have a 2004 Corolla also, I only had power loss when my MAF went bad.

SOURCE: My ABS, brake and oil lights keep coming on at the

Its exactly the abs module! and its keeping the ecu from communicating with the rest of the car, when you remove the module your tac will come back alive and the oil light will turn off. There is way to trick the ecu to thinking the abs module is working but it involves taking out the module, it is fairly simple. My email address is superbikevoodoo@yahoo.com, email me, and I will give you pictures and instructions on what to do. Its really easy, your abs and break light will go off along with the beeping!

Hi, I have a 52 plate ford fiesta with intermittent speedo problems. Speedo goes off and engine light comes on. Any ideas? Sharon


Hi,

When your Engine Check light comes on, it means your computer has detected a fault and wil have stored the code in your computer. This code can be read by your local Ford dealership, using an OBDII scan tool.

An intermittent speedo problem is probably caused by an issue with the Vehicle Speed sensor (or wiring), which is mounted on your transmission case (see No. 7 in diagram below):

As you have indicated your vehicle is 2011, you should have this issue rectified under the New Car Warranty and repaired at no cost.


Cheers,

Scott

Hi i have a peugeot 405 diesel and the speedo


I had a similar problem with my old peugeot 405 diesel, something electrical was shorting and actually sparking in the engine compartment which in my case the garage fixed very easily. Same symptoms, the speedo flickered at low speeds but stopped at higher speed.

My Peugot Partner Diesel van only gets 2000rpm max


First - I am amazed at the runaround they have given you over this - and all the work they have charged you for.
This seems to be stuck in "limp mode" - which is an electronic basic running mode when it doesn't get all the info from the sensors (of which there are too many on peugeots !)

The most likely to start with is any damage to the exhaust sections - or any catylist fitted. Diesels use them to reduce particulates, and can become blocked - causing backpressure and all sorts of running problems.

The cheapest solution to you is to take it to an exhaust specialist - and ask them to check it.
A bad knock can shatter a ceramic catylist - virtually blocking the entire system.

I have a peugeot - but after numerous electronic faults - will never buy another.
