What engine? What year?

Has anything been done to the car prior to it not starting (ie. changed parts, battery ran flat etc)?

You'll likely need the car putting on Peugeot Planet or Diagbox for fault codes and live data.
Nothing...was parked for two days...battery looks fine...car was not starting on cranking...

Tried starting it by pushing in first gear and now its not even cranking....just a couple of wizz and right side front light turns on. ...need to call roadside assistance i guess...

What engine is the car?

If you've been cranking for a long time, expect the battery to be flat.

Assuming the battery was OK to begin with, you'll need to find out why the car wouldn't fire up. That's why you'll need live data and fault codes.

Sorry cannot check engine turnover....but just tried another crank and nothing....the main dashboard light date and time setting shows 00 and 01-01-00....also just got a message on it saying passenger airbag deactivated...


Looks like flat battery ? I think even if battery is flat interior light windows work ??

if after you attempt to crank (even if it doesn't do anything and doesn't crank and turn the engine over) and it doesn't beep when the key is left in the ignition in the OFF position, then your car's computer has lost the key code. On some cars, it will crank continuously without actually firing up the engine. Repeated attempts will just exhaust the battery.

You need to be certain though whether the procedure I mentioned has been followed correctly.

There are ways to remedy this, but it's important to get the diagnosis right.

Thats what happened...i cranked it continuously 7-8 times...then i tried to start it with rolling car over in 1st gear and cranking(i might not have done it correctly)..it stopped in middle of drive way so tried few cranks again...then it stopped cranking altogether...parked it by pushing to parking area....then crank started giving front light flashes...now if i crank nothing...and time of car dashboard is reset and also getting passenger airbag deactivated error...

No beeps as below...when u say car lost its key what exactly u mean ? I tried both keys i have and same issue...


Only thing i changed was keyfob outer body...can i try jump starting ??

:bang: :bashpc:

You need to salvage the old case :nod:

Your key code is what's programmed into the car and forms the security to prevent people starting the car up and driving off with it. The code is also programmed into a chip in the key, so the car recognises the key. The two need to be present to fire the engine up.

Either of them missing (either on the cars ECU or on the key), and it's a non starter.
