Thanks for the update. I have just phoned a local specialist auto box repairer. He reckons it is a common problem with the whole range of boxes fitted to the PSA range (or whatever they are called). He did one last week and has another in this week for a refit of the valve body at £450 plus the vat. Cures the problem in 9 out of 10 cases. Might be worth a check in your part of the world to see if we get common answers to the question. ;)

Sorry to necro an old thread- but i'm having the same issue- only maybe not as bad yet...

Does anyone know if the "valve body" is something i can change/fix myself rather than taking it to the stealers?

Sorry to double necro the thread, but my 2002 307 got this auto gearbox fault after a loose wheel arch trim and water (when washing the car) touched the ecu 'disconnecting' it from everything :lol:

However I got the car checked with planet and had fault codes reset, and all was well once more :p.

Thus my 2 cents are that find a person with Peugeot Planet on the forum who is near you and get them to check it :lol:.

However if you have already fixed it or gotten rid of it (Which you might have done considering this eons old thread) I hope this info can be useful to other unfortunate pug owners who run into this problem.

Also food for thought: NEVER and I emphasize NEVER DRIVER THROUGH PUDDLES!! It may seem like fun, but in modern cars with ecus it can be fatal for your wallet!
