    Default 406 Indicator Switch

    Hi All,

    I have just inquired of my dealer about an indicator switch for my Peugeot 406 and he has quoted $1538 for the part alone! That is enough to cause me to dump the car unless anyone has a slightly less preposterous suggestion.

    Common problem with the 406, the usual symptom being a rapid machine gun sound from behind the dash.

    Replacing the wand fixes it. Easy to fit, just remove two screws from the bottom of the plastic shroud beind the steering wheel and the top shroud will also come away. Then there are 2 (maybe four) screws holding the square base of the wand onto the chassis. Remove them and the whole assembly should slide off. There is also a multipin plug for the electrics. Takes no more than 10 minutes. You will need torx drivers from memory.

    Be careful. There are two types of wands. One had foglights, the other doesn't. Buy the one that suits your car.

    That's new by the way. i think Poland was making them, as so many original ones failed. Once replaced you shouldn't have the problem again.

    So about $AUD40 to your door. How's that?

    Depends what year the car is. If it's after about 2001 it will have a com2000. Which is very expensive and not just a head light switch. I'd be looking at second hand.

    Check the Comm2000 version of your under steering wheel unit you have, I'm doing the same at the moment. take off the steering wheel surround, 2 torx screws underneath. remove lower cover and then remove top cover to get at the bar code/sticker this will tell you what features you will need with a replacement.
    Basically if you have auto wipers, auto lights, rear wiper front/rear fogs and ESP you need the exact same model, otherwise if no ESP, no rear wiper no fogs you can pick up a more basic version.
    I'm after the one with all the features for a Cit C5, but looks like no Pug has the equivalent model, Ive been to 2 wreckers who have allowed me to check all their units for a compatible version with no luck but you may be able to find on off a 306, 307 etc, the cruise control and radio arms can be installed from your unit onto the replacement.

    Good luck

    Foggy, let us know what year, trim level and body style of 406 you have, I should be able to help you out. VIN number would be even better.

    I'm going to guess that it's a 2003 V6 auto

    If that is the case, I'm pretty sure I have a spare COM2000 unit to suit at home. I'll check tonight.

    Also check another dealer as that quoted price is way over what I heard from a dealer.

    I think we can't go any further until we find out if the 406 is a D8, a D8.5, or the D9?

    And if a D9, which Model Year, since not all D9s have CANBUS (my 406 SV for example).

    Sorry to all of those helpful people who responded to my original post. I was living in France and my internet would not let me access aussiefrogs for some reason. Now that I am back in Melbourne, I am back on then trail of this fault.

    My car is a 2003 V6 with all of the toys, although I've never seen the wipers go on automatically. I'm getting a part number in the next few days and then maybe some progress will be made at last.
