SOURCE: Dashboard fault

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.

SOURCE: 1987 420 SEL, when starting to run the car after

the best thing you can do for this car is drain the tank and start again. the injection system this car uses is a very very good but tempermantal one and poor fuel quality or contamination(like water) will feel like the world is coming apart. change the fuel filter also which is in the rear near the right wheel. it will be a pump with the filter right next to it. these are really great cars. once the tank is drained and good fuel poured in, replace the spark plugs with bosch w8dc with a plug gap of .032".

Try jumping the starter i.e use a starter manual switch. If it cranks than most probably you have a faulty switch.

I would check for fuel,(pressure and injector pulse), spark, and compression, before checking any codes. Lack of any of these basics can result in codes, and then you waste alot of time chasing a symptom, instead of the actual problem.If more people followed basic diagnostics, which always come back to these three basics, rather than chasing codes first,they would find no starts much more quickly.

Peugeot 207 fan keeps coming on

Check the thermostat. It monitors the temperature of the coolant and turns the fan on to cool the engine when it detects the temperature is too high. When it goes faulty it can cause this issue of the fan being on all the time. (Better that it fails on than fails off and overheats the engine).

My central locking and manual entry to my peugeot 207 has stopped working completely, i cannot gain access to my car.

Both radio key and manual rely on the car battery to trigger the central locking == if the battery is 100% flat you can't get in ... I assume by now you have called the AA (or garage) .. if not, you may have to crawl under the car with a stick to release the bonnet lock

Hi i have a 2007 207 1.4hdi but fails to start because fuel pressure too low as well as oil pressure?

Dont know these cars, but could be the fuse for the fuel pump, or the relay possibly? look for a schrader valve on the fuel rail (same valve used on tires) and tap it to see if you have any pressure, thatll give you some idea anyway.

Sounds like a faulty starter solenoid or bad starter.Take a hammer and tap on the center of the starter housing while someone else tries to start it.If it starts then its your starters bendix that is bad in the starter. Make sure your wheels are chocked.

Polo gti battery light wont start

Sounds like your alternator is not working, if you can get the engine running and have access to a volt meter check the voltage on the battery terminals, With the engine running you should see in excess of 13V

Check the alternator belt for proper tension. Also check alternator voltage output. If output is low the rest of the systems can fail.
