    Default 307 Electrical Problem

    I've had my 2007 307 for around 6 months now, and over the last three days, I've been presented with a really annoying electrical problem. When I unlock and get into the car, everything works, the interior lights come on, the odometer lights up etc. As soon as I turn the key to 'on' everything goes dark, the whole car dies.

    I've found I can 'reboot' the car if I disconnect the battery, wait a minute or so and reconnect, then wake up the BSI by turning on the parkers. This can be pretty damn irritating when you're doing it in a supermarket carpark at night. I've charged the battery overnight and cleaned the electrical contacts. I'm in the electrical profession (avionics on French built Airbuses coincidentally, I've found the Pug to have a very similar design philosophy) so I can comply with any technical suggestions. PP2000 logs no faults.

    Another French idiosyncrasy? I wonder about the condition of the battery. Perhaps it's on it's way out.

    For the reference of anyone who encounters this, the problem hasn't recurred since the aforementioned cleaning of the battery terminals. A can of contact cleaner or isopropyl alcohol and a scouring pad will do it.
