Trying to find this sort of faulr is a mechanics nightmare ,so long as it has oil and antifreeze then ignore the dammed light ,it runs ok and no doubt is a faulty sensor .

My car is a Peugeot 308 HDI. When I start the car the following warning comes Eco drive deactivated How do I reactive the Eco drive and is it safe to drive whilst deactivated

Eco Drive is the automatic stop/start system that some refer to a a mini-hybrid.

I know little about them but I believe the facility can be switched off and therefore can be switched on. I don't know how but the answer might be found in the vehicle handbook or at your local Peugeot dealer.

It will certainly be safe to drive - the facility automatically stops working if the battery charge level drops below a certain value. Whenever the battery is disconnected/removed/replaced the on-board computer must be reset with dedicated diagnostic equipment for the system to work correctly, I hear.

Depollution message

definitely run the other way fast. If the dealer was fair dinkum , the test run would not reveal faults so I would suggest that it is a fixed up lemon
a good guide is this -- the average car covers 20,000 klms or around 15,000miles a year so going by that guide , your test car would be a 2012 model
if it older by the compliance plate on the fire wall, the speedo has been tampered with

Any body got ideas engine light came on with anti pollution warning light on my peugeot 308 diesel year 08 any suggestions please thanks Darren .

I have no clue about your car, but I did do a search for your problem and found this, I hope it helps you out.

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.

Peugeot 308 1.6vti enginefan keeps coming on

The engine fan is activated by coolant temperature, and it is normal for it to turn on when the coolant temperature increases. Be certain that your coolant level is correct, and expect it to engage from time to time, especially in warmer weather.

Depollution system faulty peugeot 308

Well its a 2009 and as such its all electronic control and it can only be diagnosed using the dealer software via the internet this is to stop people like myself from doing anything to it ,from the sound of it i would suspect the throttle position sensor under the dash on the end of the throttle pedal as this fault i have had before on more than one occasion even more so with my favourite )not( make of vehicle a renault but in all honesty you are in the hands of the dealers here as they are the only ones with access to the software via the internet with the factory ,Sorry i cannot give you a nice fixya easy type fix

I have a peugeot 308 2008 1.6 VTI sport, the car is new to me and I have had some problems initially with the car which the dealer sorted out. I have had it back a week and now the oil light flashes...

if the oil light flashes then you have one or both reasons, the oil level and the oil pressure
the oil level indicates the oil quantity in the oil sump, you can check it manually by means of oil gauge and do not trust electronic oil gauge, it could be damaged becuse of high temperarture of the oil(by the way this could be your problem)
the other case is the oil pressure and you have to check the oil filter.
any how let me remind you that 308 is equiped with multifunction display, so there should be a warning message about this fault
