Customer Question
My Peugeot 306 1.4...

My Peugeot 306 1.4 engine continues to run with the ignition switched off. I have fitted a new fuel pump relay but still have the problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: How many miles are on the car? Has the car been starting normally?

About 110,000 miles and it always starts with the first turn of the key.

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your 307?

2000

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 307 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Fitted a new fuel pump relay.

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

Don't think so.

Hey how are you,I will try to help you with this issue

the first thing will come to mind is the electrical part of ignition switch is keep it on .here in the u.s local parts store will carry them,not sure in uk

if you have a scanner for it would be a good idea to and be more accurate and scan for faults ,you can take the trim cover around switch and check for any loose wires,burned marks on harness,unplug connector,check pins etc before take it in yourself

If you do not mind me asking ,are you looking at fixing this yourself or looking to know the most possible cause of this issue and taking it to repair shop for the work ?

Do you have any prior experience in electrical troubleshooting and testing with a test light for power & ground ?

Do have a power probe for testing ?

Do you have a test light so we can check for spark ?

Do you have fuel pressure tester to check for fuel ?

Did you scan it with factory scanner or equivalent to retrieve faults codes for vehicle modules ?

You are very welcome :)

Hardly the Peugeot expert I thought I was getting. More questions than answers. This seems to be a common fault on Peugeot cars from all the viral threads I have read but obviously no simple answer.
