Re: Power Steering Failing

Could it be the steering wheel angle sensor? I think that is inside the COM2000 unit (just behind the steering wheel).

Re: Potential Key Disaster!

Ah! :o That would explain. And of course you never received the other key(s), for the doors... :frown: Should have been given to you by the seller.

Re: Car key

Cool, congrats!

Did you get the remote control function back to working? Which PCB(s) did you get for that to work? I read everywhere that a PCB must match the transponder chip.

Here is an example of a boost pressure fault:

Re: Air Doser Delete

"boost solenoid fault" sounds like an electrical issue. The engine ECU will be able to see if the boost solenoid is actually (electrically) connected. If the boost pressure is too high or too low (due to e.g. leaking vacuum), this will give an fault code indicating a problem with the boost pressure .

Re: Air Doser Delete

Can you confirm what engine you have? Not sure who you are asking, but I have a 2.0 HDI, same as the Grand Vitara (see "Power train" in the right panel of this wikipedia page ). I've never experienced any boost loss with my air doser unplugged. But indeed, replacing it by a straight intake pipe wou...

Re: Power steering fluid

I've had to top it up once; I used Total Fluide At42 ATF, as mentioned in the user manual on page 25.

I'm not sure how many litres are needed to fill up completely, but I guess it wouldn't be more than 2. Haynes doesn't mention it... :frown:

Re: Air Doser Delete

Wading through old posts found this one, sorry for the late reaction.

I disabled my air doser simply by unplugging the vacuum tube and driving a small screw in it (to prevent it from leaking and losing vacuum by sucking air).

That works and has never resulted in limp mode for me.

Re: HELP! Key and barrel stolen!

My 1.8L (Ew7J4) petrol 406 had the key and ignition key barrel pinched. Only the the key and ignition key barrels were pinched? You mean just the metal? In that case you might want to replace just those. The electronic coding does not depend on the shape of the metal parts. Do you still have a spar...

Re: Potential Key Disaster!

I think a skilled locksmith can in fact create a "good" key from a worn. The locksmith will not simply copy the worn key, but they will setup their milling machine to reproduce the original (new) key. As https://www.galmierlocksmiths.com.au/blog/worn-car-key-and-ignition says: "So by now, you hopefu...

Re: Potential Key Disaster!

You don't have a spare key? I have in total three keys. Two have blades that work excellent, on all doors. One will only open one door and only lock the other. I guess it is then the key blade that has worn. Make sure that it is very clean and has no dirt or debris on it. If that is the case, it is ...

Re: Peugeot 406 Coupe EV conversion

Does anyone know what is that sensor P/N? I cant seem to find it under "3.0 Oil level sensor". I found part no. 1131F3 on my "DocBackup" disc: Seems difficult to find a source of this part... It is listed here and there, e.g. here but not easy to find a webshop simply selling the part. Will let you...
