Question about 1991 Peugeot 405

1 Answer

PEUGEOT 405 SRI, 1995. Once in a 3-4 months, engine start to stall, after working temperature is achieved (87-90C). I need to maintain more than 1000 RPM, otherwise, engine stalls. This problem comes and goes without obvious reason. I am using petrol 98 octanes only. No petrol additives/cleaners used ever. I always fill up petrol tank when 20% is reached (never drive bellow that level of petrol to avid dirt to be sucked up). When engine is 'sick', next few days RPM is around 700-900 when not in move, otherwise ever fall below 1000-1100. Can you help me to get rid of this problem? Thank you very much!

I'm not familiar with the engine in your car, however .. the symptoms you describe could be due to a faulty MAF.

Try disconnecting the electrical wires on your MAF to see if that makes any difference (and maybe clean it..).

You obviously have no warning lights appearing on your dashboard. Sometimes a failing MAF doesn't cause any warning lights to appear.

To be on the safe side, can you get somebody to do a diagnostic check with a hand held scanner- an OBD2 ..? See if any error codes appear.

Goto Amazon.co.uk

Search 'books' for Peugeot 405 (you will find the Haynes Manual). Make sure you choose the right one for your Year & type (Petrol/Diesel) = the wiring diagrams are in the back. Cost is about £20.

You can also borrow the Manual from your local Library for free ..

SOURCE: Peugeot 405 1993 diesel estate

the alarm control unit is fitted under the drivers seat can be accessed from the rear foot well by putting seat fully forward .unscrew the two nuts holding the cover the relays are inside the unit.

this unit interfaces will tell the fuel stop solenoid to release (by applying 12 volts)

the fuel stop solinoid is on the main diesel pump under the bonnet - the exac location on the pump will depend on the make - but it should be cylindrical and have one wire connected to it - (i dont think peugeot were using multi wired coded soleniods in 93)

obivously if your car has the keypad immobilser you will know where this is - if it is the remote alarm immobilser the reciever is in the over head consol near the interior front light

Vehicle unused with dead battery for 6 months will start but not maintain idle


The automatic idle speed control system has lost its adaptive idle learning due to the dead battery. To help to correct this in the short term run the engine at 2000 RPM until warm, then back down to 1500 RPM for 3 minutes, then 1000 RPM for 3 minutes, then let it idle for 5 minutes, this should get the system to a point in the idle learn that it doesn't stall out, then drive it for 20 miles under varied conditions of highway and stop and go and low speed operation, that should get all to work again. If you still have problems you will need to have the system scanned to see what is going on that is causing a stall. Also add fresh fuel, gas goes bad in about 3 months. Use the recommended grade of fuel.

Citroen c4 petrol engine will not pull from cold unless allowed to lie for 5minutes


Without being familiar with the Peugeot 405, I would assume it has fuel injection and a bad temperature sensor. Most sensors go to either 0 or infinite ohms resistance when bad, so an ohmmeter is necessary. A multi meter can be purchased from Harbor Freight for $3.

Other possibilities would be a lean mixture from a loose or cracked hose, clogged fuel filter, etc.

Hi Chris
Is there plenty of fluid for the nrakes? they should have little wires coming from the brake pads , normally once you have replaced the pads this light would go out automatically.

It may not be your pads that triggered the light.

Hope this helps

behind front grill (near engine coolant blower motor) you have two relays for engine blower motor and resistor. Or one of this relay is foulty (or wires in conector) (oxidation becouse of the wather), or the resistor is broken. yours engine have two speed (stage) fan and probably first does not work. you can check when engaging AC first stage should work instantly. second start in about 100°C
