I’m a Peugeot Boxer 2.2hdi motorhome owner, it was registered in Decmber 2015 so has the Euro 5 engine. I’ve done 32k miles to date and it runs very well. I had a 2008 model previously and again great for travelling no trouble whatsoever.
Last week in Spain on the way home we stopped for a coffee, done 150mls engine running lovely 70mph. When I tried to restart the engine wouldn’t fire!!
It even stopped cranking on the starter motor. I switched off pondered and tried again, same result. The heater plug light goes off in less than a second and the engine was still hot. I left it for 5 minutes and it started as normal.
It happened once more on the trip over to Santander, then we were on the ferry and back to Plymouth. I took it to a local garage, plugged in the diagnostic tablet but there was no record or faults on the computer.
After leaving I phoned the dealer who sold the van and they offered an explanation that it might be the key program going wrong? They suggested that maybe the immobiliser cut in and that was the reason the engine would not start. I didn’t notice the immobiliser light on, on the dash, it’s below the tachometer.
I’ve booked a visit to the main dealer in Exeter next Tuesday for further investigation.
Any thoughts guys please.
Nothing like an intermittent fault, it started first time this morning, and my car was covered in ice!!
Thanks in anticipation...

Back from Peugeot main dealer in Exeter, I was very impressed with the technicians, sadly they could not find any fault. I requested the key be reprogrammed and a new battery in the fob. They say it seems to have been a glitch!! Perhaps even hitting the manual lock button after we stopped. I’m not convinced on that one. The following was discussed with the technical team...

Next time I stop I will remove the key from the ignition, and lock the doors and set the alarm with the fob. After 3 minutes of the key being removed the van is immobilised. After our stop I will press the unlock button on the fob once more, the doors will unlock and the system will deactivate the alarm, then put the key in the ignition. The process of the chip in the key fob being recognised by the receiver on the lock will go on and after checking the oil, seeing the doors are closed and a multitude of other things I will turn the key to start the engine. By doing the above the system is booting up from scratch and all will be well I hope!!

The didn’t charge as they couldn’t find a fault, I did pay for the re-coding and the battery for the fob.

As the immobiliser light never came on no fault data was recorded in the system memory.

On a lighter note, my description of the engine was wrong, the book says it’s a 2.2hdi Peugeot Euro 5, however it’s actually a Ford Puma 2.2TDCi!!! This may be because it’s a coachbuilt motorhome, can’t answer that one.
This was pointed out to me by a guy online in a motorhome forum, the info was confirmed by the technician in Exeter. We are off after Easter so will test the starting from hot frequently. More news when we return.
