Hi from Milton Keynes

A forum for new members to introduce themselves to the rabble already onboard. Not compulsory!
Tell us a little about yourself, lie if you have to but keep it to just an introduction, not a car discussion.

Hi from Milton Keynes

Post by PaulMillard » 03 Aug 2015, 15:23

Hi Everyone,

Thought I would join on here to assist with any Peugeot / Citroen problems people have. I'm in Milton Keynes and I have Diagbox / Peugeot Planet (and soon Lexia) all installed with the official kit. (Not the Chinese copies).

I am already a member on Peugeot Forums and have been for a couple of years (I hope no one here minds me saying?). I am 'on the map' on that forum and have been helping people with Diagbox / Planet for a while now. I will shortly see if I can get listed on your Map / Thread.

I know how engines work, that's about it. Electricals / Computers are more my thing. Very good with computers, good with electricals.

I now have a 2014 308 1.6TDi, before that I had a 207 1.4VTi for 6 years! Had it from new, loved both the cars, and also modified both the cars :D

I have created guides on the afore mentioned forum, for adding DRL's, Reversing Sensors, Boot LED's etc... Also recently created a full guide on updating the Maps and Speed Cameras on the SMEG+ unit in the 308's and new 208's. (Once I am familiar with what I am and aren't allowed to post, I may post a link here?)

Anyway, feel free to contact me if you are in the area, and need codes read etc...

Cheers, Paul

Hi welcome aboard,
My Citroens are, mercifully, electronic free zones (well, the C15 almost is) - but the Caddy has a few issues in that dept - if you fancy a challenge.

Hi Paul

I am looking at buying a Peugeot 308 Sport 1.6 petrol 2010. At startup two errors show

1 Anti-Pollution system faulty
2 ESP/ASR system faulty

Are these potentially big problems? How serious are they / can they be?

The dealer says he can fix them easily: should I believe him?

thanks in advance.

Martin

Hi Martin, welcome to the forum from a local... I'm in Newport Pagnell...

can't help with the question so I'd recommend you post the query in the Peugeot area of the forum...

Is it a local dealer?
