Peugeot 206 2001 petrol intermitant fault with starter motor

Sometimes when starting the car the engine is completely dead. alights come on battery seems okay but engine does not turn over. If you hold the key in the start position for 20 seconds sometimes the engine will turn over. Garage sat they can't recreate the problem and have checked all leads and wiring, but this happens at least once every day. Could it be the starter solinoid? They managed to find a water leak while trying to resolve this problem but that doesn't really help. A few weeks ago every fuse in the dash fuse box blew, all 30, could this be connected?

If the starter motor is sticking, it can draw a large current. If there is power down to the starter motor while its not starting then the starter is faulty. You can test this with a multimeter or just a test bulb connected to the smaller of the two wires on the starter, while cranking.Check you have a good earth from the battery to the engine. If the bulb lights up but no engine cranking then its a faulty starter.

When i go to crank the car it sometimes wont turn over, the car goes completly dead for that few moments, everything else is still working at the time, then starts to turn over slowely is it a starter,...

I think your battery is dying and cannot hold a charge. However if it is newish, say less than 2 yrs old and has never been run completely flat (that wrecks a car battery) you might suspect instead

- a poor ground connection between battery, engine block and body
- worn contacts in the starter solenoid
- a dead spot in the starter motor armature, which intermittently causes it not to crank

hi if the engine wont even turn over then the chances are the starter motor needs replacing, if the engine is turning over and it just wont start then you need to look at things like the fuel pump or fuel pump relay

Sounds like a starter motor problem. Possibly a sticky solenoid. Try rocking the car or giving the starter and solenoid a hard bang with a hammer.

Car wont start

Probably some faulty wiring or maybe a dodgy fuse which is about to clap out and works sometime but not others. Don't know about Peugeot's sorry.
