My local Peugeot garage seems to have given up on this so I need help please.

I have a 308 2.0 hdi 136 brake on a 57 plate.

A few weeks ago my problems started with what's best discribed as a miss fire. I nursed the car home and thought I had an injector problem. I took the car to my local dealer and they told me I had two faults. ECU, P2148 injector bank problem and U1208 ABS to ECU com problem. The fix for this was replace the ECU, at £1200.

The only way to start the car was to insert the key and turn on the ignition but hold for 15/20 seconds before cranking. This worked for a few days. On my way home from work one day the car misfired then just cut out. I called the AA and a very good tech came out, after explaining the faults to him he placed the diagnostic kit on and told me I had fault code P2148, he said it was low volts to the injectors and not what My dealer had said this code was.

It was suggested that I send the ECU to ECU testing in darbyshire, this I did with all the codes and info I had, and so after a few days they contacted me to say after a full test the unit was found not to be at fault.

On further investigation I have discovered that four purple wires and one yellow wire on the offside ECU plug (when the ECU is installed) have indentations in the plastics leaving leading me to be live a possible brake in the wire. The codes are 3131*00024, 3131*00028, 2821*0002C (these are the purple) and 2903*14?5 being the yellow.

What I would like to know is what these wires do/go to? Does the injection system have an boost for voltage away from the ECU? Have I missed anything obvious?

As it stands now with the tested ECU fitted, the car will turn over but not fire. It's like the ignition system is locked out.

Any help would be greatly received.

Cheers

It is NEVER the ecu dealers dont do diagnostics they just fit new parts at your expence till it works or your skint :)

The injectors run at 80 volts this is generated by the ecu

Its more likely a simple wiring issue you need proper diagnostics fault codes are no use you need live data readings showing whats working and whats not this will get you to your goal.

Other issue with this engine is the fuel pump seizing this can be checked by removing it and checking the end of the cam.

406, reassembled the ECU and fuse unit back into the car. Just for giggles I tried to start it. With just the ignition on and with my head back under the bonnet a high pitch whine was coming from the fuel pump. It fails to start when I tuned the key, no surprises. Went back under the bonnet and the fuel pump was still whining until a click from the ECU stopped it.

Is this normal operation?

Looks a complete pig to remove.

Fixed.

Just for your info, I've managed to fix my 308hdi.

After sending the ecu to ecu testing twice, only to be told no fault found I dug deeper into the fault.

I disconnected the injector electrical plug on the suspect cylinder, #3 in my case, then attempted to start it. Blow me she fired into life, running like a bag of crabs but running. Just to prove the fault I then moved the #3 injector over to the #2 position and vies versa. Leaving the #3 plug off she failed to start. Plugging #3 back in and unplugging #2 it fired into life.

New injector fitted, she fired into life but needed to be reprogrammed to accept the new injector and the transposed on, did all four just for giggles.

So far the car is back to normal, fingers crossed, salute the magpie and kill a rabbit for its foot.
