Peugeot 406 problems


I hate to rain on your parade but welcome to the world of French car electrics. You could try an owners forum or a non franchised specialist may help. This is why people in the know only buy new and sell on after 3 years. Renault, Peugeot, Citroen all suffer from nightmare electrical faults. My only suggestion is to check as best as you can all harness connections for tight fit and any corrosion.

406 HDi electrical errors!?


If you have the check engine light on and the vehicle is drivable you can take it to Auto Zone. They'll scan it for free and let you know what they find. You can always purchase a code reader and find out yourself what triggered the check engine. My advice if you want to diagnose it yourself is to get a Haynes Repair Manual. I'm not familiar with your vehicle but if comes turbo from factory you will find some answers in the manual. Check any disconnected, pinched or misinstalled vacuum hoses. Sounds like a boost problem that could be triggering electric problems by sending the wrong information to sensors. If you can't find any thing wrong try restarting the computer. Disconnect the ground from the battery turn the lights on to drain the electricity faster wait five minutes then reconnect the battery. If they disconnected the battery your car might still be relearning, you'll have to keep driving it some more in order for the computer to set.
