Customer Question
Hi, I’ve got a...

Hi, I’ve got a Peugeot 206 cc that is in fuel economy mode and won’t start. I’ve replaced the battery in both keys. I know the one I’m using is linked correctly because it beeps when left in the ignition and I open the driver door. I tried a bsi reset, nothing. It’s also had the battery removed and fully charged. Before this it was running fine. Used an OBD on it and it had a pending P0300, so I cleared it, but still not starting.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Sorry I don’t know what a gas hog is. The vehicle does not start

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your 207?

It’s a 206 cc 54 plate

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 207 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Can you see any of my messages?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just the info I’ve written thank you :)

Customer reply replied 10 months ago

I’ve put a new battery in because it was only reading 11. Still no joy. There are no revs on the dial when starting, so could this be the cam shaft sensor or crank shaft sensor? (Not quite sure where to find these). Had originally suspected the coil pack, but because the car won’t start and was running fine before i don’t think it is this.
UK Auto Mechanic: Kevin, UK Car Mechanic replied 10 months ago

Ok the next step would be to get fault codes read from car to see is the car is preventing starting

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
there was a P0300 showing which has been erased (before the battery was replaced a couple of days ago).
UK Auto Mechanic: Kevin, UK Car Mechanic replied 10 months ago
Ok so do you know if you have a spark if ignition could are very common to fail on these

Sorry, I can’t work out exactly what you’re saying there? I’m wondering if autocorrect may have changed one of the words?
UK Auto Mechanic: Kevin, UK Car Mechanic replied 10 months ago
It has my apologies . Have you checked for spark ? Ignition coils are very common to fail
Ask Your Own UK Car Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Sorry, that should say: yes I’ve checked, but there is no spark
UK Auto Mechanic: Kevin, UK Car Mechanic replied 10 months ago
Ok and do you have injection pulse and fuel pressure ?
Ask Your Own UK Car Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
No, but I think fuel is getting through because the spark plugs smelt of petrol
UK Auto Mechanic: Kevin, UK Car Mechanic replied 10 months ago
Ok I would be looking at the crank sensor . Do you have access to an ossiliscope ?
