Good evening all,

First post here and really need some advice please.

I have just purchased a 207 sport (1.4 16v 08) from a dealer last week with a 12 month Gold warranty.

Next day when driving the car in stop/start traffic the Anti Pollution lit up on the dash with the car wanting to cut out every time the revs fell below 1500rpm. A basic code reader at that time found the following fault code logged: P1336.

I took this to an approved warranty repair garage who diagnosed the fault as a coil pack and had this changed, along with all spark plugs i think.

Took the car home and again in stop/start traffic the car kept wanting to cut out unless i kept the revs up. I have now returned the car back to the garage for further checks ( My basic code reader shown these faults: P303, C1303, C1403 & C1200).

The garage phoned earlier and said his diagnostics machine is pointing towards an ECU / wiring fault and won't be covered under warranty and would be a costly repair.

I have since spoke to the person who i bought the car from to see what he suggests, as i've only had the car a week i dont think i should be paying out for any costly repairs. However, he's of the oppinion that it can't be an ECU/ wiring fault and is going to speak to the garage tomorrow.

Is there anything i should be suggesting or doing? from what i've read this needs to be read with peugeot planet, should i ask the garage if they are willing to cover the cost for this?

Any advice would be really appreciated!

many thanks

Rees

Have a search for "wiring" or "wiring loom" in the 207 section.

Despite what the garage say, its their responsibility to fix or refund.

If they aren't skilled enough to diagnose the fault then it needs to go to Peugeot at their expense. I often do advanced Peugeot diagnostics for various garages in my area.

Personally I'd go for the refund if there's the chance of one.

Hi gibbo, thanks for the reply. Just spoke to the garage and the warranty company have given the go ahead for the ecu to be sent away for diagnostics. Seems they are willing to cover the costs. Bit worried though as it only covers up to £1000, so will have to wait and see.

I will keep this updated with any progress.

Thanks again.

Rees.

Just had an update from the garage.

After speaking with their electrical specialist they were advised to change the coil pack for a genuine peugeot part rather then send of the ECU for investigations.

Gargage have updated that following the installation of the genuince peugeot coil pack all fault codes have cleared and the car is now driving perfectly.

I'll be picking the car up at some points tomorrow and fingers crossed its OK!

has anyone heard of this happening before?

thanks

Rees.

know little about peugeots...but learning, but its a fault the fords get from time to time, coil shorts on its windings and confuses the ecu leading to all sorts of strange electrical glitches. in some cases it can spike the ecu and kill it.

anyway fingers crossed you have it fixed, cheap coils are fine most the time but a bad one can get through the non quality control checks.

Electric problems in cars can be among the most frustrating and expensive to diagnose and repair. and a cheap coils are NOT fine if they are made in China
