Hi, this is a very common problem and its not only your make peugeot's have the exact same problem, its a tiny little fan that just sits behind the dash and all it does is gently circulate the air round the inside of the dash to keep everything cool and stop and heat building uo

i know its very very annoying but the only option is to take the whole dash out just to get to a fan thats about the size of a milk bottle cap and its just not worth doing, i know its annoying but you will be even more annoyed when you cant put your dash back together,

my mom has got a peugeot with the exact same noise it sounds like their is a fly trapped behind the dash well thats what my mom though anyway she kept banging the dash and spraying fly spray everywhere then when i got in the car she asked me if i could hear the fly and asked how long they live for cuz its been their for ages it was only when i told her it was a little fan she realised that maybe its not a trapped fly.

its up to you rip the dash out and bust the fan but its a big job just to stop a tiny little fan i know its very annoying but their is no easy fix sorry.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Jerking is usually caused by the engine misfiring or the transmission not working right. I would start with a good tune up if one hasn't been do in awhile

the fan is computer controlled so in order to diagnose it you need a scanner to look in the computer to see what it sees. If your overheating at idle then most likely the fan relay or the fan itself failed providing the computer is ok. Try turning on the AC. If the fan does not turn on you may need a professional diagnostics to be accurate.

pull the negative battery cable off for a few minutes, or pull the fuse for the computer for a few minutes, or take it to autozone and have them clear the codes with the computer

That means your ABS doesn.t work because you have some trouble codes in ECU memory.Please visit DEALER workshop to solve this problem.

I like to know your symtoms of the improper condition of the ABS in your car. If it was to be disconnected you can be jepordizing your life behind the wheel including others. When the ABS is disconnected the pedal will become hard at times depending on the vacuum inside the engine. If a quick stop had to be made at a very low speed you will not stop in time, for you will just coast into something

if you did not drain the whole system its easy elevate the front of the car open the coolant cap and the air bubbles should come out as your engine warms up.while this is happening keep an eye on your gauges.

sounds like the air in the cooling system was not all bled out , it should correct itself after a few drive cycles, if not then there is more than likely a problem with the thermostat sticking in the closed position.if there is not sufficient coolant inside the cylinder head then the tempature at the thermostat will not be enough to open it therefore the cycle of the coolant will cease causing an overheat and possible engine damage.

Sure is, the regulator in the alternator went out. You can test this by starting the car and disconnecting the battery while the engine is running. If the car dies, you have a bad alternator.

The hot and cold difference gives you that, usually in the morning, you can clean the windshield inside and apply Rainx Anti-fog here's the link to what it looks like, you can get it at Autozone Pepboys etc.
