Hi,

I’ve had my e2008 GT for 2 months now and have covered just under 1,200 miles, but an ‘Electric Traction System Fault’ warning/error message has started to be displayed when I start the car.

It won’t let you put the car into gear to drive it and then it won’t let you turn the car off for a while; once it does turn off there is a warning alarm that plays, as well as the error message still displaying. This has now happened to me 2 days in a row, so I haven’t been able to use the car.

I’ve read about this (or similar) occurring on the e208 but has anyone else had this issue with their e2008? (I know that they are basically the same car, but I wanted to raise the issue on this message board for the e2008). I’ve included links below to the relevant e208 threads, where some people have also described a loss of power while driving:



It looks like there is temporary fix, which will allow the car to start and be driven if you leave it for at least 15 minutes after first trying to start it, which worked for me when I tried it once:

After taking my e2008 to my local Peugeot garage I can confirm that there is a recall published for the vehicle in relation to the ‘Traction Battery Charger’.

After getting Peugeot Assist to recover my vehicle and take it to the Peugeot garage, they identified the issue and carried out the recall work before testing it for a couple of days (3 road tests after restarting all the systems). I was without the car for a week in total.

Having had the car back for a couple of day’s, I’m pleased to report that it looks like the issue has been resolved.

If you have an e2008 (or presumably an e208 as well) I’d recommend checking with Peugeot if the recall affects your vehicle, and if it is applicable booking your vehicle in as they should hopefully complete the work under the recall before you actually encounter the problem detailed above.

On a side note, and not something which I had done before anyway, the garage told me that you shouldn’t use an extension lead if you’re charging from a 3 pin plug charging lead as this can cause issues with the cars systems, so make sure you only use a 3 pin plug charging lead directly plugged into the plug socket if you use this method of charging.

Hi

Just wondering now it's identified for recall as ‘Traction Battery Charger’ issue....did you use CCS rapid charging at anytime?

I ask because I haven't had this fault occur (yet) and have only used either my 3pin 13amp "granny" at home or 7kw fast charging in town.

Regarding the ‘Traction Battery Charger’ recall, if it is a proper recall we shouldn't be waiting for the fault to happen PSA should be proactive and recall all EVs to have the work done.

Thanks for cross posting in both forums.

Regards

Hi,

I have used 50kWh rapid CCS charging at motorway services a few times, so not sure if that could’ve had anything to do with it.

I agree that they should be taking a proactive approach to it and contacting owners about the recall. But saying that, it sounds like it is a relatively new recall as this was the first that my local Peugeot dealership had heard of it (and they’re one of the biggest Peugeot dealerships in the UK). It’s probably worth a call to your local dealership to check if your car falls under the recall and to discuss it with them.
