Its a permanent fault then but fitting an exhaust should not have done it !!

Check the wiring at the fuel pressure sensor on the main fuel rail and the joint to the main loom usually a yellow plug sometimes they get bad connections there

If you've changed the exhaust then I'd go back over that area and look for anything amiss, as its more likely you've knocked or damaged something fitting.

Took it to a garage today and the following arose..

On inspection via a very expensive obd thingy some symptoms arose

First of all a timing issue maybe timing out or crank and cam sensor

Second air flow sensor

Low fuel pressure


The garage tried to remove codes on 2 machines of which no would not be completed successfully on his machine, he also tried a £8000 snap on machine which also failed..

He said even if the faults are there one or all should be removed on ignition key but none would remove..

He mentioned the crank and cam sensors were still getting good voltage but it could also be caused by the timing been out or a loose belt

Also on live data the fuel rail pressure was reading 393 bar even when the engine was off and ignition on, he unplugged the sensor to the rail but the reading remained the same..

The maf error was due to it been unplugged but still no codes will remove..

He has said in this case there could be a relay fault, wiring fault or in worst case an ecu problem but he's not sure until he looks deeper into the problem as he is guessing all the codes coming up are on the same circuit were a problem could lie hence faults not being able to be removed..

Is there anything I can check before I get ass whipped by the garage, they are genuine guys who did all the work and basic tests today free of charge including checking if the injectors were in good working order which they were..

He also removed the fuel filter and there seemed to be metal filings in the bottom and a lot of muk, he isn't sure if this is just over time or if it the pump in the tank..

Sorry if this is all over the place just trying to bring things to light,

Is there a relay or fuse I can check which may be the cause for the list of faults

Just shows you how £8000 still wont read a Peugeot !! snap on is Gucci crap even a launch is better than snap on.

The fuel pressure reading to me adds to my conclusion of a wiring fault the wire to the rail sensor the garage removed this is no doubt where your problem lies check all 3 wires for continuity.

Metal filings in the filter housing are nothing to worry about unless its a substantial amount I see them in our taxis even after the first service at 12000 miles !!

Cam and crank sync errors can be caused by a floppy belt not necesarily a sensor fault

The wiring to the yellow plug on the fuel pressure sensor just removed the plug to sensor and wiring is fine chased it back into the loom and also looks fine too about 4 inch into the main loom..

Also all the faults are still on the van including maf crank and cam and low fuel pressure , it's strange as to why none of the faults will be removed when ignition is on..

The other one he used it a Bosch computer thing

I'm confused. The car is showing faults and they're coming back when you try to clear them?

That's what happens if parts are faulty. In Planet you can do a diagnostic, clear the codes then it pauses a few seconds while the components are re-checked. If the problem is gone then the fault is cleared.

But to be frank I don't care if the diagnostic machine cost £8 or £8000, there's a reason Peugeot dealers and we use Lexia and Planet, and we mention it on here often enough.

lol sorry but £8,000 snap on reader? Either they lying out their teeth or they got robbed big time. Surely even the most expensive planet kit wouldn't cost this?

Tbf I think one of his machines was lexia as he was saying that this software usually diagnosis and clears the peugeots and was scratching his head as to why it refused to clear..

He tried I think was a lexia a Bosch one them he got the snap on one out..

I ain't familiar with names as I'm no mechanic but lexia rings a bell as to what he said he was using

He claims to be a "peugeot specialist"

Maybe if they're stumped and want to chance replacing the ECU or BSI.

Just like when garages tell people their ABS unit is goosed when they don't know about the sensor gap issue and have thrown a couple of sensors at the problem.
