    Default 2006 Peugeot 307 H/B Breakdown, leaving us stranded!

    A few days ago, we set out on a journey on the Bass Highway,only 15 kms from home, when "disaster ' struck. All of a sudden, there was a "ding", the Engine warning icon came on and the car began to run roughly, then stopped. We ended up calling the RACT and were towed home. Because I consdiered the car was under warranty, I returned it to the place where we had bought it.9 They just don't want to know about it!!) The Timing Belt was checked and the Timing and all was in order. The crank case sensor was replaced and the car started, but is missing and they can't locate the problem. Has anyone experienced a similar problem or can throw any light on what has happened and what needs to be done. Any comments will be appreciated. Thanks!

    I think it could be the ignition coil pack, which is on top of the spark plugs. Commonly one fails, but you need to replace the whole unit as they're stuck together. A Peugeot mechanic could diagnose this through the onboard diagnostics which would log a fault code.

    No worries. It does seem unusual the crank angle sensor failed as well, though. The CAS would usually cause the car to stop and not start, where the coil pack typically just causes a misfire, but they are unrelated in terms of failure as far as I'm aware.

    If it is a diesel then I would suspect a broken rocker!

    Start with a scan with Lexia or at a min a generic OBD2 scanner.

    Does your RACT have a Mechanical check up/diagnostic service ? If they check it over and find mechanical faults, you have a far better chance of getting things fixed under any warranty, especially if it has to be resolved later in some consumer dispute area.

    Might be worth checking.

    When I searched for an OBD2 Scanner, I came up with so many, I am a bit bewildered. Is it safer to go for one from the UK or USA, aslthough more expensive, in terms of reliability or are the ones from HK and China just as good?

    The fault was the Ignition Coil Pack and with a replacement is going fine. Thanks Stuey you were right ! Appreciate your help !

    No worries Peter. Good to see. They are a pain, being so expensive.
