Hi all, I have an expert van (2009) which every now and again throws fault codes into my display. some of the faults are: faulty power steering, antipollution faulty and so forth. The EOBD or engine management light comes on too. The STOP light comes on also, when all of this happens, if i stop the van it wont restart for anything up to an hour later, it basically immobilises the van. On recommendation I have changed the engine bay fuse box, and have had peugeot dealership check the van over, but the problem keeps re-occuring and it is making for a unreliable van especially as I'm self-employed etc.. Can anyone offer suggestions or solutions to my problem please as I'm really frustrated with the van by now. Many thanks, Matt

Power steering fault may mean that you need the fluid topping up my 407 used to do this then stopped when I topped up the fluid. As for the faults etc get a diagnostics etc done

Hi, thanks for that info. I have checked all fluid levels and they are at correct max levels. I have noticed that my collant reservoir is leaking and periodically drains itself but have been told by peugeot that this wouldnt bring all the warning lights on?

The faults you mention are all coming on due to low voltage we get it from time to time on our taxis BUT they never fail to start.

Check for bad earths round the battery and any earths under bonnet as your power steering is electric and needs a good supply if the BSI sees voltages all over the place it gets confused the stop light comes on with steering faults.

Antipollution fault can also be caused by voltage spikes.

Sounds like Power steering pump is on its way out ! They draw a lot of current and are also linked to the can bus network which can cause a non start..!
