Hi All,

Having just purchased my 1st Peugeot - a 23000 mile late 2006 Peugoet 407 Sports Man 2.2 CC developed a fault whilst driving. Simutanously i receievd the warning light that a lamp, ABS & ESP had a fault. The N.S. Headlamp (Dipped) had blown (Easily replaced), but now when I start the car after a few seconds I receive the ABS & ESP warnings - The car is stationary when this occurs, the warning continue to be displayed when driving but the cars performance seems to be uneffected (Braking handling etc). Do I need to get it diagnosed or would a Lexia3 diagnosis let me investigate the cause of the fault (Seems I may need to this tool based upon recent events), or does anyone know what may have caused this fault?
Kind regards to all

Yeah front ones need drilling out but nothing major. I managed to do mine but jacking car up removing road wheel and using progressivley larger drill bits I managed to get it out with no damage to the hub or driveshaft etc as I managed to control my fists of ham! :D. Total time from start to finsh approx 1.5 hours including brew n chat breaks :rolleyes:

Thanks for the info, at least it dosen't involve specialist tools, just have to get hold of a suitable OBD diagnostic interface & investigate the problem - thanks for the info though!
Kind regards

I had the same fault on my 2007 2.2 Coupe, changed the battery, not had the fault again!
Low battery voltage does seem to chuck errors up on Pugs. Although a dead battery is easier to diagnose. The car struggles to start or goes in to Eco mode quickly.
My old 406 threw a load of errors about this and that at my brother not long after he bought it. A new battery later (after he'd left it till it didn't start one day, the twonk) and all was well.

I did a front ABS sensor on my blue 407. It was.. "fun".

Hi,

Thanks for the info, although I've had no difficulty in starting the car (Battery seems fine), I'll do a drop test on the battery as you could be right (Seems weird or quite a coinincident that the dipped lamp blew at the same time i received the other faults!

Cheers
