Default Peugeot 207 Warning Lights - No Speedo - Heavy Steering

I have now seen countless forums from here and other forums online and yet no one seems to have the actual solution to the problem which seems to be common with the 207's. I please ask for help and advice, and whilst I appreciate there are some that prefer answering with further problems rather than solutions (others offering negative comments on efforts so far) I would prefer hearing back from those of you that have experienced the problem and found the credible solution.

The problem:

I have a Peugeot 207 (2006) 1.4. The problem started intermittently that all the warning lights have gone on, steering stiffens up, battery light on, ABS warning, Anti-Pollution, speedo dial not working and a huge big in red "STOP" on the dash. What was intermittently has now become permanent. Apart from the hard steering the car is fine!

Tried so far:

1. I have taken off the fuse cover in the engine to check for dampness or water, it is dry and very clean, no visible damage and looks brand new!
2. I have checked fuse compartment in car and again no sign of anything that can raise suspicion.
3. Took the car to National Tyre and asked them to put on a diagnostic. I couldn't tell you what equipment they used but as the branch is brand new it was up to date. The diagnostic unit could not read the car at all, infact couldn't actually recognise it was connected. They suggested a dealer, and we all know what that means.....1,000's
4. I had problems awhile back with the rear left brake light and changed the bulb and it still did not work, took off the console and for some reason it worked again, from this and another forum they mention it could be causing the warning lights, I have now once again checked both back light consoles and all is clear apart from a slight bit of moisture.

Please please help!!! Surely there is someone that has experienced the exact same problem and found the simple solution, it must be something in particular that is causing this same reoccurring problem with 207 owners.

I look forward to all responses!

Do you have ABS fault light on as well, all vehicle speed info comes from ABS Unit. No speed signal will trigger Depollution fault, no power steering and stop light amongst other. ABS Units are a weak spot on 207's.

Also how good is battery & Alternator as non charging/poor battery can trigger a multitude of errors and stop power steering

Hi windy1603, yes the ABS fault is on as well, it is actually one of the warning signs, its says breaking system failed, stop! I thought about the battery being a problem, may have to take it to get tested or try find my multimeter somewhere. What are your thoughts, test battery or deal with ABS first? If ABS, then what should I do? Is ABS a quick fix like maybe a sensor or something?

You need to get car on Planet/Diagbox to read faults.

I would think ABS will be the cause. It could be NSF wheel sensor (used to get speed signal) through to ABS pump ECU failure

get battery checked at a tyre centre or garage, a home multimeter will be no good to detect a bad cell.

i would be first unplugging the plug to the abs ecu and checking for damp, may as well unplug it from the main ecu and check plugs there also.

i found it easier to remove the front bumper but you may just be able to unplug the abs plug from under the car.

could be a speed sensor or the abs ecu at fault, ours read right hand speed sensor but turned out to be the abs ecu, got a second hand one of ebay with a 30 day guarantee, been good since.
as above you need proper diagnostic, where are you?

I have now tried to make contact with my local diagnostic equipment holder from this website and as a newbie unable to send PM's so resorted to a visitor message to get hold of him, hopefully he will respond and I can arrange for the check to be carried out. I had a suspicsion it was the ABS being the suspect all along!! You seem to know your stuff! If it is the wheel sensor, how hard is it to replace? And do you know roughly the part replacement cost?

Yeah seems like I may need to. As per my previous message, do you know how difficult to change a sensor? Can it be a home job with limit tools to carry out?

I am from Glasgow, far from West Midlands unfortunately as you seem to be on the same page as I am. Unplugging the ABS plug? Likely to find somewhere located around the brake callipers? Equally unplugging from the ECU in the car or under the bonnet?
