    Default 406 V6 communication problems

    We live in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. We have a 2002 406 V6 on injection gas. We have had numerous problems with tuning and replaced all coils. We struggled to find a mechanic who could correctly diagnose the faults. A&B Automatics in Dandenong says our engine is not talking to the auto trans and causes gear change problems and power loss. Alpine Affair has looked at the car twice and seems reluctant to diagnose and admits that it does not know anything about gas systems. We also have an air bag fault and a catalytic converter fault that we suspect are caused by wiring under the passenger seat. Does any one know a Peugeot mechanic not intimidated by technology and who knows 406's.

    Kenny at Auto Paris, may be one suitable candidate with that criteria in mind.

    the airbag fault will just be one of the plugs under ether the passenger or drivers seat.
    I find with my 306 that even just giving the plugs a wiggle can fix the problem. nothing much to worry about.

    Remove all plugs, squirt of WD40 or similar, reconnect. Problem, hopefully, solved. Cheaper than anything else.

    I second Auto Paris. Kenny does know his Pugs.
