Question about 1991 Peugeot 405

1 Answer

A warning light came on and went straight off on my Peugeot 405 N reg, I didn't have time to see what it was showing but half an hour later I got a screeching noise from my left side rear wheel, over heating. Is this the handbrake sticking and would it just affect one side.

    you mentioned a trapped stone or lever/cable fault.
    Could that be also something to do with the caliper

Yes it can affect one side, if drums it could be the wheel cylinder but if discs then it could be a trapped stone or lever / cable fault.
If it is related to the light on the dash that light would have been Red not Orange. I would not worry about the light at this stage as it has now gone out.

    Yes, to have a caliper you must have rear discs? It is common for small stones to get trapped, I am thinking this is most feesable due to the loud screech.

    Jack up that corner and spin the wheel by hand, it should be obvious from there on in.

    Hope this sorts it :o)

Peugeot 405 SRi: brake pad warning light came on; pads replaced; warning light stays on. Any idea how to reset? CHeers, Chris

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

Warning Light

yes, on the expansion bottle or some rads on them its on the side of the rad there is a black square with a 3 or 4 oin plug on it.
remove this by i think half or quarter of a turn, and pull out, note some antifreeze will leak about half a litre, check for oil on it as this might of had a head gasket and a little oil gets into the water and sticks to the prongs, wipe it off, some time it like a limescale sort of build, clean it, if no joy u need a new 1
