Default Instrument problems!

Hi all,

New here and first post so bear with me

Car: Peugeot 307 XS 2.0 estate 2004.

A few days ago while driving all instruments stopped working (speedo, rpm, fuel etc) while at the same time the STOP light and fuel empty light started flashing (I had a full tank at the time).

After 20-30 seconds it stopped and all instruments returned to normal.
This has however happened quite a few times over the last few days.

I have now had a beeping sound a few time's too at the same time as the above problem...

I wondered if anyone has had this problem or know's what it might be before I take it to a garage? Or if there might be a way to fix the problem myself (probably not I know)

Anyway, any info or advice would be great!

Cheers
Eddie

I had a similar problem on a 306, turned out to be a badly corroded and crusted up earth strap under the battery.

I've been googling a bit and i'll try a rest of the BSI and see if that helps, hope I don't have to take it to a garage as its probably gonna cost a bomb...

I dont know if planet will diagnose a dodgy earth strap,

But its always worth finding the nearest member with planet to get a diag done, just to be safe

Where are you located?

I would love help checking it, I am located in Stockholm in Sweden though so may be a problem finding someone :-)

(i'm from Leicester though)

Well, very strangely the problem seems to have stopped (the last two times i've driven the car anyway)

I was wondering though... I have now a copy of Planet that I was thinking of using to have a look and see what error code there might be. I need to buy a cable however to connect the car to my laptop.

Does anyone know if a ELM 327 OBDII cable would work with Planet? Some software comes with the cable but I think it may be better to use planet?

Here's the info I have on the cable I was looking at.

OBD-II protokoll:
- ISO15765-4 (CAN) - ISO14230-4 (KWP2000) - ISO9141-2 - J1850 VPW - J1850 PWM.

I have a feeling I will have to pay quite a bit for a garage to have a look for me..

Any help would be great!

Cheers

No, it has to be the Planet. Its more than just a cable, it has a box of electronic trickery in it.

A fellow member will do a diag for the cost of a beer upto a tenner.

A garage will do a generic code read for about 20, but that won't necessarily interrogate and test individual components like Planet will.

Peugeot dealers do a Planet diag for either 40 or 70.

The Planet software is about 65 from door2doorshop.com or 100 upwards on Fleabay.

haha, yeah, I may have trouble finding someone close by... :-)

As I said though, the problem seems to have stopped,but.. i'm starting to think it may have been something to do with the immobilizer maybe. I vaguely remember using a different key for the first time (wanted to see if it had a better battery than the one I normally use)

I have noticed that the red light on the door lock button has been lit all the time. Its off now however and my problem seems to have gone away for the moment. Wonder if maybe I need to re-program that other key...

The local Peugeot garage quoted me the equivalent of 150 quid for a error code read (Sweden's not the cheapest country) so looks like i'll buy a cable and program to check the error codes just to be safe, we have new baby so I don't want the car breaking down in the middle of nowhere!

Cheers
