Dashboard fault Electrical problem 2004 Peugeot 206 Manual 16500 miles ---------------------------------------------------------------- Hi there my dashboard on my 206 has become faulty since last Monday. The speedo, digital mileage, and petrol guage keeps going off and flying down to the bottom. The digital clock has also gone off and re set itself to the wrong time. Lastly the battery went flat last Friday and had to get the car jump started and it has been fine starting since, but dashboard still playing up. The radio, fan/heater, wipers and lights all work fine excepts for the back window heater which also stopped working same time last week. Do you have any advice on what it could possibly be? Could it be a faulty battery or is it more likely to be an electrical fault? I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards Rachael

I too have a Peugeot 206 - and has given me nothing but grief - mostly electrical.

The fact you are suddenly losing systems, and draining battery points to a short in the wiring loom - which is a common fault on pugs.

I advise you trace the wire from the rear heater to the fusebox (it's labeled in there). Use a cheap multimeter - pull the fuse out and check the wiring both to the heater (resistance to good earth) and the supply( check for 12V )with the switch on. You may end up undoing the loom cover in the engine bay - but check your feet area first for any damaged wires. Try wiggling the loom with the ignition switch on and in neutral to find the problem. Often just taping it up properly solves it.
