An electrical short is an electrical drain in a circuit thats not supposed to be a constant drain on the battery, the alternator recharges the battery but an electrical short will interfere with charging process.

Personally, replace the ENTIRE fuse box. This is actually relatively inexpensive ($60) so fear not. Basically the stock unit is lackluster (at best) and a nightmare (at worst). Please accept my apologies for pointing to another chat board, yet it is WELL documented at:

Please believe me, DO NOT buy a new Ferrari fuse box, make your own as seen in the links above. The time and effort are WELL worth it!

SOURCE: how to change alternator in a porsche boxter

2 hours needed to change alternator:
- disconnect battery.
- remove top covers of engine - behind front seats
- remove 4 plastic bolts to remove side cover.
- remove all of the bolts to remove metal cover
- losen belt by putting a 24mm wrench on tensioner and turing CCW. You should also consider changing the belt ($18)
- remove the alternator screw and the flywheel screw beside alternator.
- move the alternator up on the flywheel screw side. If stuck use a hammer and wedge to move it up until it losens.
- remove wire and plug.

Rebuilding the alternator. Only 4 things can be wrong:
1- bearing worn out - turn rotor to test.
2- coils short - smell and check for burning in side.
3- Rectifier - take plastic cap off and test with an ohm meet from the heat sink to each of the 3 diodes, then reverse the testing points. If both resistances are the same on any of the 3 diodes, replace rectifier.
4- If the top 3 are fine, then it is the regulator. This is a hard part to find retail. Ebay and other sellers will try and get over $100 for it. Porche claims they don't sell. I found it a wholesaler, who I begged to sell it to me. Cost C$17. 2 bolts and one screw and 5 minutes later and it was replaced.

To reinstall follow the reverse. Remember the flywheel part of the alternator goes in on the to of the backet. you may have to use a hammer and wedge to get it down. Install the flywheel before it goes all the way down, or it will be difficult to slide in.

Enjoy.

SOURCE: Peugeot 307 2.0 hdi. Hard to steer. ESP light

it sounds like your electric power steering pump has gone. if the esp light is on then it means it has recorded a fault in the electrical stability program system and may need to be plugged in to read codes, the fault may refer to a fauly wheel speed sensor

sounds like your hydro-vac went bad. this is located by your master cylinder inline. it uses your power steering pump to give boost to your brake system instead of a vacumn booster

Peugeot code p3011


This is a generic warning message on Peugeot and Citroen cars.

It generally means that there is a fault within the emissions circuit. However it does not necessarily mean that there is a fault with the CAT or lambda sensors.

It could be one of many sensors or faults that causes the ECU to detect a fault and could led to this error message been displayed.
p3011 = fuel pump relay short to positive

But my advice is to clear the fault code. If it appears again then change the fuel filter and go from there. If the problem persist then as I said chec your emission circuit.
