Re: Peugeot 406 3.0 V6 saloon for sale

It's an R reg, so it'll be the earlier J4 engine with 194bhp, not the later J4S with vvt and 210bhp.
This is better in some ways, less to go wrong and only 2 downstream cats. The newer engine has 4 cats and more complex wiring, but each to their own.
It's a nice car btw. :cheesy:

Re: need advoce maf sensor

Some people have had good results with a cheap eBay MAF sensor, however it's a bit of a gamble - there are always offers on genuine ones at ECP and the like. My wife's old Picasso had the MAF unplugged for 4 years with no consequence other than it somehow affected her ability to park. I'm with DDD, ...

Re: Now look who's got a Volvo...

I've always liked the Volvo's, especially the older ones ( showing my age now ) and the new ones are much more suited to the average driver, rather than Antique Dealers that need a cavernous boot.... How does it 'feel' compared to the Focus? Peter, most of us here no longer own a 406 - so no need to...

Re: Engine management light

It should find it on its own accord.....
If not, you can have a peek at the ECU in the engine bay - pop the cover off and slide the ECU up to reveal a label on the side.

Re: Trip Computer and Outside temperature not displayed

I fear that an illuminated MFD with the ignition off could be water under the carpet on the right hand side of the car ( drivers side if in UK )
There are 3 big connections by the pedals that are BSI related, worth checking under the carpet thoroughly.

Re: Engine management light

Look on YouTube for a set up guide - they are done in real time so you kind of know what to expect..
Getting experience is trial and error though, just take your time to go through the menus and options.

Re: Radio too loud (RD3 PU2473A)

The CD player has a built in amp, as the executive models with the boot amp JBL system were all cassette players...
I'm not sure what settings you need in PP2000 though, sorry.

Re: Engine management light

A laptop with PP2000 is cheaper than 2 visits to Peugeot for a diagnostic, plus you can use it on other people's cars once you've got experience with it...
It's a pain to set up, but I use mine quite often - it stays in the boot and I charge it up the day before a diagnostic session.

Re: Engine management light

Sadly, it's just a generic message saying that something is wrong.....
It could be almost anything, so a session with PP2000 will certainly help, otherwise it's expensive guessing.
Where are you based?

Re: Pp2000 AC unit

No.
Between the sunvisors is the interior light unit. Part of this has a grill on the left - pull this half downwards.

Re: Pp2000 AC unit

To get to the passenger compartment air sensor, you need to gently pull down on the part with the grill, then this will expose 2 screws which hold the fan in place..

Re: New 'stricter' MOTs...

Not sure that would work for my T4, as the MOT ran out 21st September...
It's booked in for Thursday, so I'll have all my appendages crossed that day - it took me nearly 20mins to start the bloody thing earlier ( I must invest in a trickle charger.... )
I'm glad your car passed the MOT Brett.
