Firstly ... sorry; but I've also inadvertently posted this in the Visitors' forum.

Please may I ask if anyone can advise about a BSI reset for my 2003 2.0 Hdi 307 estate?

The front sidelights have stopped working. The bulbs are OK. The fuses are OK. The rear lights, dash lights and rear number plate light work. As I understand it the front and rear lights are split diagonally so I'm wondering about a BSI reset.

My question is please; can a BSI reset make matters worse?

Hope all that makes sense?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards

John

OK ... any ideas please as to why the front side lights are not working? Fuse OK. Bulbs OK. No voltage at fuse.

Thanks

Thanks for the response.

All of the other lighting devices work ... everything. I have linked the fault with the BSI because it went wonky in the past due to water ingress.

However since then (three years) everything has worked fine. It's possible that I'm checking the wrong fuse I suppose but I'm basing my 'not the fuse' diagnosis on the fact that the rear lights are working and I understand they are diagonally split with the front side lights.

I've had some work done on the car recently (new dual-mass flywheel and a cam belt) and as I've only just noticed the front side lights not working I wonder if something in the wiring got damaged during the work?

The car's MOT id due in a couple of weeks so I need to get this problem sorted soon. I am wondering if the best option might be to run a new wire to the side lights from another lighting feed in the fuse box.

On the other hand (given the money I've spent recently and the need for a new MOT) I'm wondering whether or not to throw some more cash at it and take it to a local independent garage that specialise in Peugeot electronics (I live in Devon by the way).

Anyway, sorry; I digress ... yes all the other lighting circuits work correctly.

Thanks for your time.

Kind regards

John

Hello John,

Mr Haynes tells me that you need to check fuses 12 and 22 for the rh and lh sidelights.

They are both 10A - 12 also powers a number plate light, instruments, ciggy lighter and headlight levelling. 22 also powers the other number plate light.

So check the number plate lights - if both working you know its not the fuses.

As you say, both side lights get their power from the built in system interface - so may be worth resetting - open up the drivers window - switch ignition off - wait for bsi to 'go to sleep' (5 mins without turning anything inc. not opening doors which turns on the courtesy light) - disconnect battery - wait a few mins - reconnect battery - reach into the cab and turn the lights on - this will 'reawaken' the 'reset' bsi.

If this doesn't work, then it's either a buggered bsi or a break in the wiring - so I'd call out an auto electrician.

Thanks for the reply.

The car is off to an auto electrician on Thursday. I shall update when they (hopefully) sort the problem.
