Default Peugeot 207 Anti pollution fault with a missfire

Hi everyone just bought a 207 and it has a engine warning light on and says anti pollution fault on dash, a few other symtoms are that is sounds like it has a slight missfire and hessitates when accelerate, under the bonnet they have added spade connectors and have obviously been messing around shorting sensers etc, what would cause these symptoms ?

putting on computer tomorro to see exactly what it says but used a little reader today and codes are P0141 and p2237 p, think the p at the end means pending, my work mate thinks should take to peugeot just dont want to spand a fortune anyone had this problem ?

Thanks Dean

I'd say you need a Planet diagnostic from one of the nice members on here, but if the wiring has been mucked about with you won't get an accurate reading.

And to be honest I wouldn't risk damaging my diagnostic equipment on such a car I'm afraid, I don't know how others would feel.

Post up your location and see if someone local to you knows 207s and is willing to try and untangle the mess first.

If you go to Peugeot a diagnostic will be 80 and they'll probably just want to replace the mucked around wiring looms.

the wiring isnt to messy they have just cut 2 wires and fit spade connectors and this makes me think they have been trying to short a sensor etc, someone with no idea what they are doing, but its not all a chopped up mess lol , peugeot might know the common faults thats all and would be able to try sensors etc rather than me just throwing money at it, also i could have bought a older more expensive car and the same could have happened next week, think i will properly connect the wiring before i do anything, is the planet a lot better than a normal obd reader

thanks Dean

Yep, much much better. Most generics just get an OBD code but Planet does so much more and can test components.

Whereabouts are you and any chance of a pic of the bodge?

Planet is what the peugeot dealers will use to diagnose your car....trust me it will cost you alot less if you use a member on here instead of going to peugeot.....just to clarify...they cant tell you much more than a member on here because we all use the same equipment...(or a clone anyway)...

Oh and this is what google returned for p0141... http://www.bba-reman.com/content.asp...NEXT_DTC_P0141

And for p2237- O2 Sensor Positive Current Control Circuit/Open

Sounds to me like you have a problem in your 02 sensors...
