Air Con system has been tested and regassed by those nice Quick Fit men at "No Charge" as it did not fix the air con. The problem is as follows put aircon on compressor doesnt kick in but once the engine has reached its working temp 90c, and the main electric cooling fan kicks in then so does the aircon and when it does it blows nice and cold so it seems that the aircon itself works great, it just will not kick in until the engine cooling fan starts. I tested this today on the driveway once the engine cooling fan started the aircon compressor kicked as well.

A dashboard warning, "Engine fault; repair needed" was displayed and the electrical engine is not running any more. I stopped the car and then turned it on, but the warning is still on and the electrical engine still not working. I am on vacation in the mountains and any Peugeot service company is far way. The car is working just fine on diesel. The electrical battery is charging normally but I am a little worry about a possible overcharging. Any ideas? Is it safe to drive only on diesel?

Worked well until about a week or so ago, then screen shot appeared but the sound then turns off until the end of the announcement! I've tried turning the TA off and on via the menu but the sound still cuts out. Any ideas?

has there been any faults been reported on park assist

Answers

You can see from the previous report underneath your question that I have experienced 'Parking Assistance Fault'. My new car has now been into the Peugeot Dealer that sold me the car in Nelson twice to have this problem sorted out. I went away on holiday last week and the fault has returned. I have sent a picture of this fault display to the Service Manager and am awaiting a suitable date to take the car back for repair once again.. I would appreciate any help from someone who knows what the fault is due to and how it can be fixed. Andrew from North Yorkshire

I received my new car 3008 Allure 1.2 Turbo (1st or 2nd car of the first badge in Singapore) on the 1st week of Sep 2017. Since then, it has gone back to the Peugeot workshop twice to fix the same problem (Parking brake fault. Have the vehicle repaired" & followed by "Hill start system fault". The 1st time I brought it to Peugeot workshop, they said "fixed" but came back with the same problem which happened again the next morning. Every time the warnings came out the car would stall and I have to restart the car. Sent back to the workshop for a couple of days more for them to fix. They said they installed new software in the ICU. Have been driving a few days now and so far ok. However, today there was a warning saying "Parking assistance faulty". Not sure this is related to the same problem or is it a new fault. However this doesn't stall the car, just that it shows the warning. Let me know if you've got the above problem settled and how it was fixed. Quintus Ong from Singapore

I have recently acquired the above model car which is also an automatic. I am not sure if it has an alarm fitted. There is a button in the car for the alarm but it does not appear to work. I wondered if this model was actually fitted with an alarm or it isn't working.

Answers

The button inside the car, if it looks like a car with an upside down rainbow inside it and the word off beneath then that is to turn the internal motion sensor off when you park up so you can lock the car with an animal like a dog inside without the alarm going off. Dave Barratt from Derbyshire

Just bought a new 66 reg 3008 and cannot seem to find a way to switch the radio on and off? Manual not very helpful ... any answers out there?

Answers

There should be a virtual On / Off button on the display accessed by pressing any of the menu buttons on the side of the screen. If it's turning on but no volume the sound may have been muted by pressing the volume up and down buttons simultaneously. To restore sound press either of the volume up or down switch once.

Look to the left of the CD slot and there is a small button for turning off the radio, opposite the eject button. Colin from Lincolnshire

Answers

You should have accessed the diagnostics through the OBDII and re-set the parking brake system before you stripped it down. You may need to take it to a dealer now to be reset but don't be surprised if they want to strip the parking brake down completely to check everything first. Hugh from City of Glasgow
