If in fact the shop DID replace the pads on the car, I'd take it back to them ASAP or it could be that the BCM (brake control module) is malfunctioning. Take it back to the shop, let them look it over and see if the problem is something they did. If it's a large well known shop then they should be honest with you. If it's a small hole in the wall type shop that you used because you were trying to save money, then run. Take it to the dealer and let them fix it. If it is the BCM, be prepared to spend upwards of $1000 for the new module and labor.

It may be that, however, I will give you the instructions on how to do a simple test to see if it is inside the instrument cluster itself or the problem is somewhere else.

I hope this helps.

Peugeot 407 problems


Take the vehicle to Autozone, Oreilly's, NAPA, they will put a "CODE READER" on your vehicle for FREE to help diagnose the problem. They will also show you where the part is on the vehicle and loan tools but they cannot replace the part for you.

Sounds like a sensor either on the pad or on the mastercylinder.

I hope this helps.

Hi I have a peugeot 406, I HAVE REPLACE THE FRONT BREAK DISC AND THE BREAK PADS BUT IT STILL GIVE THAT HORABLE NOIOSE WHEN I BREAK. Its realy iritating and i take good care of my car,

Remove the brake pads from the car and smear small amount of high melting point silicone grease e.g. Carlube, at the back of the brake pads. Be careful do not put on too much and never has it touch the pad material and the disc rotor. if you do, remove it with brake clearner immediately. The squeaks noise shall disappear if you fix it properly.

Go to five more shops until you find one who can give you an honest answer. There are many out there. It could be a simple clogged inline orifice or filter. Meanwhile grin and bear it.

Hi, two months ago low brake fluid indicator came on, brake fluid was added. This morning low brake fluid warning came on. I must have a leak. Front brake pads & rotors replaced 10 months ago.

Take it to a shop which has a lift, like an oil change or muffler shop, have them put on the lift. The leak will be apparent as it will be a wet recent stain. Then you will know if you are looking at a brake line fix, a leaking master or slave cylinder.

Do not blame the guy who did the pads 10 months ago, anything he did wrong would be immediately apparent and would not take 8 months to show.

The shop that did your brakes should repair/replace the caliper. He HAD to install the pads into the caliper & had to remove the caliper to install new rotor. Hold that shop accountable for the repair. And don't take NO for an answer.

Its possible the brake pads have worn down again, if they are and , obviously , you need to change them. Pay attention to the brake caliper pistons, check that they are not sticking or seized and also the caliper slider. Free off these parts. Hope that helps

ABS and brake fault warning

I has a clicking/knocking noise on one of my 407 (54 plate) front wheels after a change of brake pads. On investigation I found that the bracket to which the caliper hydraulic hose was fixed (at the lower end of the suspension strut) had been bent downward and was catching the CV boot clip. I bent it back up and the noise went. It is possible (if the brake caliper is not supported during pad change) to bend the bracket supporting the hydraulic hose. It could also interfere with the ABS wheel sensor bracket - check. Simply jack-up and support the car on the side with the noise and turn the wheel by hand to see what gives (don't go under the car until it is supported safely)..
