Default ABS faulty brake system, now won’t start.

I have a 1.6 petrol Peugeot 207 sport. Been driving it fine for the past 2 weeks until this evening, I got an error message saying abs faulty brake system, then once I got outside my house, I tried to start the car but nothing, no clicking or anything. Lights were all still coming on, but the car just wouldn’t start until I got my dad to push the car and that managed to start it, drove around the block, got back outside my house and then the same thing again.

Really frustrating, anyone had this problem before?

Ignore the brake failure warning get the starting problem fixed first. Check all the main cables from battery + terminal through the engine fusebox and on to the starter then the earth strap from the gearbox to the body then body to battery - terminal. Then check the small starter trigger wire becomes live when you turn the ignition key to the start position.
Let us know how you get on.

I would get the battery load tested first. If the battery is not up to spec, it will cause all sorts of issues/display random faults etc.

Also, checking the main electrical battery connections as stated above will be a good thing anyway as they are inclined to get iffy over the years. But dont just look at them, remove, clean, grease and replace.

I’ve replaced the battery but still not crancking. Push started the car , drove around the block again, all the dashboard lights were on though. Got outside my house, turned off car, tried to start again but nothing

My guess is the fusebox is faulty remove the wires check for water ingress well known issue on these causing many issues also check the starter fuse but that would not explain the ABS warning.

If the brake fault was voltage related it will clear itself after a few runs if not you will need to read fault logs to see why its coming on.

Fuse 8 is the starter fuse and if it blows again it could mean your wiring has a bad connection or your starter is dying

I did a fault log and tried to see any error codes but the reader was showing no errors at all

The BSI log records everything. Surprised there's nothing showing on Planet.
