I wonder if they tried cleaning the Mass Airflow sensor & the Map sensor apparently they should be cleaned after 35.000 klm because they get coated with a film of Oil which can affect the Engines performance ?
the joys of owning a French car! I had similar problems with a Citroen VTS, diesel model. the fan was staying on up to 20 minutes after switch off, long runs only. I sold mine private so never found out the cause. I currently have a Peugeot RCZ 2.0 HDI 2014. apart from annoying sound from brakes and fuse blowing in winter for Window washer never had any problems. is your daughter's car petrol or diesel?Looking for some advice for my daughter, she bought her RCZ last August, a 2014 model with low mileage, so she expected trouble free motoring. Boy was she wrong!
4 months later the car was going into limp home mode. Peugeot main dealer said it was the timing - cost her £1031.
4 months later warning light on and limp down mode, she went to a local garage for help. Car checked out and found to be mechanically sound but could do with a full service - cost her £250, warning light went off. Next day when the car was started the warning light was back on. same mechanic decided the rocker cover could be the issue - cost her £440. Couple of days later, back to limp down mode and now the cooling fan was working overtime, sounding light an aircraft for over 5 minutes after engine turned off! Mechanic then decided he hadn't a clue and suggested trying a main dealer again.
Tried a different main dealer this time - they said car had 18 warnings showing, they replaced the high pressure fuel pump - cost her £980. At the end of the drive home, the fans were on full pelt as usual!
They suggested the issue must be the timing and as this has been done fairly recently and they must have made an error so she should take it back to the original main dealer. Who then proceeded to deny any issues with the timing, suggesting initially instead it probably needed a de-coke (est £1000). But then discovered a potential issue of a split pipe to the rocker cover and a failing battery that needed replacing - cost her £315. Told all warnings wiped and fan issue gone, went to pick car up and told windows wouldn't close properly! (offered to fix that for free next week).
My daughter drove 12 miles home and the fans stayed on yet again (no warning lights on dash).
My husband is taking her car back to garage tomorrow, we are sick to death of her paying out for solutions that don't work after spending around £3,000.
The fan stays on when just turning on the engine on the drive, so it isn't an overheating issue. My husband tried the BSI re set suggested on here but no joy.
Any suggestions on what the cause could be would be most welcome. Could it be something like a faulty heat sensor?
I would have told you to steer clear of Evans Halshaw Peugeot Wakefield, but they were so bad they’ve just lost their franchise.As a new owner moving to Rotherham I am anxious to know which garages worked on your car - their track record doesn't sound impressive.
Castleford might be a bit of of a trek....
