The Problem:

hi people i cant get my 2003 peugeot 206 to start just bought new battery car turns over fine but car will just not start. checked fuses and the fuse for the fuel pump (15amp) was blowen so replaced it but still car wont start. i have lifted rear seat up where fuel pump is located and i cant hear fuel pump kicking in when i put ignition on i then put a multi meter over power cables to fuel pump and only getting roughly 2volts even when car is cranking over. anyone know what reading i should be getting?? and why the fuse for the fuel pump would blow? and is there mibi a relay swithch for fuel pump thats needing replaced? ive been told theres not a specific relay for the fuel pump but a multi function relay is this correct??? any help would be appreciated its driving me mad!! thanks , crookie

The brown relay powers up the ecu and is the fuel pump relay too. Could be working the pump but not the ecu.

Its too common not to replace it. Plus if it hasnt gone now, it will do in the future.

If the key is placed near or in the ignition barrel with the drivers door open, then the 3 tone beep coming from the dash (possibly from the BSi) indicates that the bsi has recognised the key.
It doesnt necessarily mean that the bsi is signalling the ECu to activate start, but it does mean at least the key and ariel are working.

I knew that I had seen this posted ages ago by Steve ( SMHLTD ) and I was determined to find the post. More for my sanity but to qualify the reason that I had posted this in my first post.

Have a look at post 6 on this link

thanks whittingehame, if i leave key in the ignition i do get a beeping sound so the bsi knows its the correct key in the ignition. do u know exactly where the brown relay is? i cant find it i have taken out ecu on the left hand side of engine but cant see it. iam 90% sure its somthing to do with the fuel pump i dont think its getting power so therefore could well be that brown relay. all help appreciated , crookie

i think Pin 3 and 4 supply and earth from fuse box on right in engine bay.supply for fuel pump comes from the fuse box. should get battery voltage from supply but check earth ok.if they both are ok then pump has failed

Ok so would I disconnect the plug goin into the fuel pump connect pin 3 and 4 together put one end of multi meter on both 3 and 4 and other end of meter in the earth of the car body would this give me a proper Reading? I'm assuming I should be getting around 12volts at the fuel pump ? . Thanks again for ur help much appreciated , crookie

UPDATE!!!!! took out spark plugs and they are bone dry so opened the valve on fuel injector rail a little petol came out then nothing so then tryed cranking car over a few times, then again went bk to the valve on injector rail no fuel came out when i opened valve so its clear there isnt any fuel getting to injector rail. i then unplugged the fuel line goin into the other end of the injector rail cranked car over and no fuel comming out of fuel line. my local car breakers has a fuel pump and are wanting 30 for it should i buy it and try that?? is it easy enough to change fuel pump?? i am still trying to locate this brown relay this could be the problem i would have preferd to change relay before changing fuel pump. again any help would be much appreciated , crookie

make up a test lamp using an old bulb holder and 21watt bulb.put one wire from one terminal of test lamp in one pin of connector and the other in the other pin( connector disconnected from fuel pump) turn on ignition bulb should light up and be bright! if this is the case then the pump is at fault. if you only get a dim bulb then either a high resistance on positive side or bad earth. I hope this helps

i recently put an injector cleaner in my diesel 206 and the car was running fine but over about 1 week it started running a bit funny then finally cut out goin up a hill it was realy jerky like it wasnt gettin enough fuel, i got it home after the rac towed me and i was working on it for a while and manged to get it going and noticed there was air bubbles in the fuel line after the filter so i took it apart and there was a bit of diesel at the bottom of the housing and i noticed there was bubbles coming up where the primer is at the bottom so i replaced the fuel filter and the housing and the car worked fine for a little while but started to go back to the way it was when i put the injector cleaner in it. one minute it will start fine then other times i have to prime it if i want it to start. when its goin its ok still a bit jerky but it moves but if i stop then try to start again it wont go so i have to either prime it myself again or jus keep turning the key till it goes. sometimes it seems like a missfire but i dont know i am thinking about buying some new glow plugs and second hand injector of ebay which compared to a garage is alot cheaper but i dont knopw if im wasting my time tryin to repair it

does anyone have an idea what could be the problem
