Question about 2006 Peugeot 405
If you drive your car more likely for short distances then engine will not get hot enough to start the regenerating process to clean the cloged particulate filter resulting in a antipollution fault.
Drive your car to a motorway or empty dual carriage way (best in nights). The temperature meter should be showing above 60°C when you begin with this process. Place 3rd gear and drive your car at 3000-3500 rev /min for 15 to 20 minutes to let the ecu to kick the regeneration process. Keep driving car for 15 minutes in this state will be enough to clean your catalytic converter and your problem will be solved. But if it doesn't then the problem is with your catalytic converter and more probabily you need to change it.

Testimonial: "Thankyou. Have been reading some reports of weird and wonderful things costing hundreds!!!"
its in series in the exhaust system, but check you have particulate fluid in the vehicle first before replacing the filter

Hi i think the problem is one of the coils ( very common on renaults ).
The shaking is the engine missfiring.
Because of the missfiring the emissions are not correct which brings on the engine light.
If you are able to get a diagnosis ( code reader ) done on the car it will tell you which coil is gone
I hope i have been of some help to you

When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.
