SOURCE: cold start valve problem
if you have an electric cold start valve make sure to unplug it and if keeps apling fuel with electrical conector unpluged that means the valve is not good, but if not then you have an electronic problem, possible a bad cold start sensor or cold start module or cicuit problem, and might be a time to take it to an electrical shop

Was any work just done to this car? Timing belt? It is rare that these pumps go bad but I have seen a few shell out. If you are not familiar with the ALH diesel engine I would not try to replace it. You should take it to a shop that specializes in VW's.

well this might be quite a serious one. it all depends if you have the model with the keypad.
if you have the model without the keypad it is resonably straightf orward to check if the stop solinoid has power or not. or if it is stuck in position.
a stop solenoid is an item which perhsps might resemble a spark plug. it usually has a single wire which is conected to the top of it.
if this wire isnt live when the ignition is on then chances are a fuse has blown.
if it is live then remove the complete stop solinoid(spark plug looking thing) and it will have a little plunger and a spring inside. theese can be removed and then the stop solinoid replaced.
you can then turn over then engine and if it the gets fuel to the injecters you know that thats the solution.
Cars with keypads.
if your lucky enough to have the model with the keypad. then for security reasons peugeot decided to place a 5mm think bit of steel above the fuel pump so no one can go fiderling with it.
this plate is held on by shear bolts.
and the only way to remove the plate is by removing then engine from the engine bay and drilling out the sheer bolts and then reasemble the hole thing.
sorry for being so long winded but unless you have the few cars with no keypad. and a fuelpump with no steel gard over the top. you will have to get the spanners out.

take the shut off valve out of the injector pump and inside the valve is a round metal body with a rubber seal on the end ,check this seal hasnt swollen and stuck ,also check inside the primary fuel filter for any transparant pieces or crystal ,this is a problem i have been getting of late with people putting this bio fuel into the tank ,it causes this crystal stuff and it damages the injector pump as it passes through the filters and solidifies in the injector pump and kills them.just though before you start pulling it apart crack off a couple of injector pipes and get assistant to crank engine throttle wide open and see if its pumping fuel first this will give you some idea what to look for ,leave this answer in your e mail box so you can get back to me later after having a look ,but please remember the time zone difference
