The Problem:

Guys I have a problem with a 407 SW est that I bought last week. Firstly it showed a problem with the ABS & ESP. 208 later after having 2 X ABS Sensors fitted to the rear on Friday last, I now have the warning re faulty Indicators and L/H rear Stop light. When I press the Brakes I get the message re the Indicators and when I use the Indicators I get a message re the L/h rear stop light,Can you please expand a little on your fix. (On Sat both the ESP and ABS lights came on in the Dash, stayed on for the remainder of my journey, circa 10mins, did not come on when I restarted the Car and have not come on since. I wonder now did I need to spend the 208 at all)

there may be a fault with the connector to rear light units/ bulb holder.could also be a dodgy bulb

I found that the problem was the l/h rear brake / side light bulb was not inserted / twisted home fully. No further bulb warning messages since.

I have the same problem and have found that the Peugeot use a system of continuity to monitor the light bulbs and when the resistance gets to high it shows the light bulb as a failure. i have found by removing the light bulb cluster from the vehicle and then using a fine emery cloth clean each terminal on the light bulbs and then try and use the emery cloth on the contacts on the unit this may be a bit difficult as the holes are not made for sticking fingers in them.reinsert the light bulbs in the correct way and so far after six months i have not had any problems. The next time it tells me a bulb has gone when it has not i will proceed to perform my maintenance on it again unless the bulb really is gone. I also have a 2004 Peugeot 407 that i bought from new in August 2004.

The rear brake lights on my 407 stop working. I only get the rear windscreen brake light comming on when pressing down the pedal. I cleaned the terminal, changed the bulbs. I even changed the brake light switch, no change. Not been able to check the fuse becuase I am not quite sure which fuse is for the rear brake light on the 407. Soon as I turn on the car I get the message. "Right handside stop lamp fualty" & visa versa. Ocassionaly I get "ESP faulty" message as well.

Any advice on getting the above sorted would be appreciated

Hello,

PEUGEOT 407 2004 2L.
Used to get the dashboard warning that an indicator bulb had gone when it had not, then whole rear left cluster stopped working. Took car to local auto electrical engineers (Curd Brothers Tunbridge Wells Kent)who diagnosed a corroded and/or burnt earth connection to the cluster which they very quickly fixed.
