Hi, Car would not start the other day so called out the RAC. He read codes and diagnosed as cam sensor and crank sensor corellation. He sugested changhing the cam sensor which i did but car still does not start when warm. So I thought I would change the Cranak Sensor but my problem is I can not find it. It is probably looking straight at me or I am just daft.

The car is a 2006 307 sw 2.0HDI 136BHP.

Bonnet is up tools are out so your hellp would really be appreciated.

Thanks

Found it. Spoke to a mechanic this morning who told me it was just above the gearbox. Spoke to a mate and he told me it would be by the pulley for the cam belt, which is where it was.

Thanks

Car only has 70K on the clock and only had the car a few weeks.

Car starts fine when cold but after a good drive and the engine warm it will not restart.

Somtimes the car starts but soon after all the revs go and there is no powere but then it comes back again, atleast it did last night.

I have now replaced both the cam and crank sensors so hope this has solved it.

I also have noticed a seperate fault hwere the wires that go to the air con pump between the pulley and the pump body have broken away, if you know of a way of joining these back i would appreciate knowing, do not really want to buy a new part.

Thanks for the advice

So , now I have changed the crank sensor and the can sensor, thought all was ok started after changing sensor , drove around over the weekend.

6am this morning off to work in my lovely 307, oh no.... will not start again.

Cranks over but will not start.

As you can imagine I am well annoyed, having previously owned a Megane I had hoped that the Peugeot would have been more reliable.

All help would be appreciated as garage labour rates are beyond my means.

Thanks

It was never going to be the crank sensor. When they fail the car won't start at all. Make sure the valve timing is ok then you'll need to check wiring.

Being a little dumb as I am, what wiring should I check. I assume the wiring to each of the sensors, what am I looking for?

Thanks

Thanks

I have booked it in at a local garage who claim to be Peugeot, Renault , citroen specialists.

Hope they can fix it quickly and cheaply.

Same issue

Hi mate, I have a 2006 307 1.6l. I have the same problem which you've described.
Had the AA come over and he's said its the crankshaft sensor - car will not start without it. The electrics work but engine just doesn't tick over.
Can you please advise me of the solution to your 307?
