    Default Peugeot 407 SV Sport minor queries

    Hi all, I have recently become the owner of a used 05 407 sv sport. The car is lovely, but there are a few issues that I would like some help with.

    1. Reversing sensors - they do not beep if the audio system is muted or off. Is this the default option? If not, how do I get this changed?
    2. The Gear shift console does not light up, making it difficult to see which position the gear shifter is in the dark. Is there a light that can be replaced/fixed?

    Apart from these minor issues, I have had to replace the fuel sender assembly, as the fuel gauge would only show 3/4th of a tank when it was filled. There was also a clamp that needed to be replaced near the radiator to stop an oil leak (transmission?)

    I had the TPMS switched off to stop the alerts advising that the system was not monitoring, possibly because there is a plastic valve in one of the tyres. I would like to get this fixed at some stage, depending on the $
    I am also wanting to get a spare key made, not sure how much this would cost from the dealer or if there is an alternative?

    Any advice would be very much appreciated!

    Thank you for your reply BIGRR.
    Yes the gear position does show on the dash, but the fact that the light isn't on in the console is annoying me

    I will check the spare for the sender, thank you again!

    For the key, maybe this:

    Peugeot 2 Button Remote Flip Transponder KEY Suits 107 207 307 308 407 408 | eBay

    Adding a blade cut by one of the companies who will work from a photo?
