Hi, My Peugeot 407 v6 automatic transmission is acting up. Gear doesn't shift up from 2nd gear, I have to manually shift the gear to 3rd, 4th and afterwards shift it back to D then it shifts normal. I had the transmission fluid change but stilll the problem remains. Note that no transmission fault warning (PRND) display on the dash. The vehicle had about 90,000 millage. I replaced two rear abs sensor thinking the problem might be connected. Abs and engine check light disappeared afterwards transmission works normal for a while before acting up again. Also appears on dash display, power steering fault warning though steering wheel is a little strong and fluid guage is okay. The car was converted from right to left hand drive. Someone with same experience pls help

I have a problem a right hand drive peugeot 407 when cold and driving. The car looses power when going uphill, this does not happen all the time but intermittently, what could be the problem, it seems like fuel starvation. When I wait around minute it will start again with no problem. All glow plugs have been changed and also fuel filter has been changed in the last year. Also sometimes whilst driving and pressing the accelerator the car seems like it is loosing power for about a second and then picks up again, the car does not cut out. tnhis can happen once a week or even not for a couple of weeks. I am worried to use the car in case it breaks down far from home.

Hi John I think you need to contact a Peugeot dealer for a code. I took the battery out of my car last week & as per handbook expected to have to do this. Luckily the battery was only out for a matter of seconds and didn't require the code. Elle from Wexford

Hi there I have a Peugeot 407 1749cc 2005 petrol car. When I go to start her in the morning or after she has been standing for over 2 hrs I have to let her run for approx 20 mins otherwise she will shudder and lurch forward with a lack of acceleration. My mechanic has run diagnostics on her but nothing is showing up. I have ruled out clutch & battery as these have recently been replaced. Can you guide me as to how to get this fixed? Many thanks.

Answers

The Peugeot ECU and BSI Body Systems Interface control modules tend to go into meltdown if you reconnect a battery after a long while. BSI failures can give you no indicators, ignition lights on with no key, wildly incorrect instrument cluster readings and complete non start. You could try a BSI reset Put the driver's window down, open the bonnet and ensure all equipment is switched off. Make sure no one operates a key fob remote control in the vicinity during the following. Ensure all doors are closed and remove key from the ignition. Wait for 3 minutes, disconnect the vehicle battery and wait 15 seconds. Reconnect the vehicle battery, wait a further 10 seconds (do not open doors.). Switch on the side lights through the driver's window. Switch on the ignition and check system's functionality. If you have central locking, hold lock button on key down for 10 seconds. Remove key, open and close door then test central locking system. Start the engine and complete the system's check. If necessary repeat and try otherwise Google BSI reset. Hugh from City of Glasgow
