Customer Question
Backed my 2003 Peugeot...

Backed my 2003 Peugeot 307onto the driveway, car running perfectly, switched off, locked up using keyfob lock button. Next morning unlocked car using key fob unlock button as usual, car would not fire up. Engine spins over as normal, all lights whistles and bells lighting up as normal, no engine warning lamp showing on dashboard. Any idea what might be causing this problem? Cheers, ***** ***** Corcoran.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? The dashboard bulbs?

Yep, all OK....

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '03 Peugeot?

307

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

No, a local mechanic has it, says he's 'fitted a new board', whatever that is, and the car still won't fire.

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

No, I think that's all, thanks...

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.If you no longer need help post a simple reply to let me know.

If the fault codes were not read out/checked with a compatible scan tool or computer plugged into your vehicle this needs to be done.If any codes are set the codes set then need to be diagnosed to then help locate and repair this issue here.

This may be due to a fault with a fuel pump failure or sudden crank sensor failure needing to be replaced.You will have to have this tested further to locate which component needs to be replaced.But these are some of the common causes.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service, your 5-star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.I work on delivering the best answer and help here but in some cases, it can be difficult to do without seeing the vehicle.

Thanks Pete
