    Default 308 T9 Temperature

    Hi all,

    Advertisement


    My Pug 308 T9 has come up with engine overheating fault on display and needle goes to the red after 2 or 3k of driving. Car has plenty of coolant and oil level is fine. Anyone else hasd this come up on their 308?

    The 1.6 petrol motors (not sure what yours is) have a bit of a history of the coolant temp sensor failing.

    It’s on the thermostat housing and some earlier versions were not individually replaceable (ie. you had to replace the whole housing, which is not cheap) but later versions repositioned the sensor and it was individually replaceable.
    Regards,

    Its a 2014 2.0 blue hdi. Is it safe to keep driving with the error message then? I am 300kms from home and need to drive.

    Just had the ECU read by a mechanic and the thermostat is electronic and keeps sending the temp needle to high even though the car is not hot. Had the errors cleared but it just came on again after 100kms driven.

    Clearly an intermittent issue as the error message has now disappeared for now. How I hate intermittent faults. Any advice welcome as the original error message bothers me.

    Very strange as it's an error related to the 1.6 petrol engines.
    They had a recall campaign to install a 2nd temp sensor in the thermostat housing for the cars that came with a single sensor housing along with the necessary harness.

    I managed to plug in a OBD and get the ECU to report error P2683: Engine Coolant Bypass Valve Control Circuit High. If anyone has any idea what this error relates to, and more importantly, a fix, I would be most grateful.

    Not sure if it is relevant but I had a similar problem with a 405 SRDT showing the temp gauge running very hot intermittently with the fan cutting in.

    Spent lots of $$$$ at a Peugeot dealer who tested the system and then said the sensor had failed. But the problem reoccured.

    Took it to a Peugeot specialist in Brisbane who told me to pop the bonnet, he jiggled a connection, permanently solved the problem and sent me on my way. Must have been there for all of 60secs.

    Thanks BlindFreddie. The error message has not returned and their are still no symptoms of overheating but P2683 is still logged in the ECU. I am ignoring it for now. Plugged the OBD into my wifes Pug 308 T7 and she has a whole list of logged errors in her 10 year old car without any symptoms of a problem. Maybe the ECU's in cars throw thinhs up all the time?

    "Maybe the ECU's in cars throw things up all the time?"

    Suspect that has happened once or twice in my 308 T9 but not sure if it was an error, an error attended to but not cleared or the cause of the error was simply ignored and cleared by the dealer.
    No wonder my old Peugeot specialist said to me the 405 was the last decent Peugeot made (before the current 308 T9). When asked why he said because it had no computers.I suggest you find yourself a local Peugeot specialist you can rely onjust to make sure there is nothing untoward.

    Guess I was just plain lucky! As were the many other 405 owners I met over the last 20 years and the 550,000km I had the car.

    Sorry and surprised to hear about your car. After purchasing a 405 SRDT a long and many time Peugeot owner and journalist told me he could now understand why the 405 had such a cult following.

    Re the 405 and computers, would there be a chance that a manual 406 D8 with Bosched 2.1 diesel may be, give or take central locking, actually be the last good ole electronics hassle free Pug. Mine's only got about 420,000 on it, but the idea of renewing it a bit is appealing and if the Poms are right that it's not hard to get them to give 160 HP the 'old girl' could be a fine mode of transport for a decade or 2 more.

    All the best to y'all; cheers.
