Hi there,
As a 307 ownerI would like to share my experiences, and over the last 3 months there has been a continuous battle with Peugeot, I have finally resigned myself to a Pug fate worse than death. I have had an ABS fault on my 2003 307 for the last 3 months. I have spent quite a lot to have it repaired and still I am having sleepless nights about what I have bought_ just a pile of pooh. The ABS developed a fault..front juddering noise and vibration through the pedal and the ABS light on just as I was about to have it MOT'd..and as you may guess ..no MOT pass..was told it's the front sensors..had them replaced..lasted 3 days fault back again.then was told it's the back sensors..had them stripped- cleaned and checked..Collected the car and took it straight to the MOT test centre that I had booked when I was told the car was fine..2nd Guess..that's right the fault re-appeared 500yards from the test centre..I was not a happy bunny. Getting in the car to drive away there like a miracle NO FAULT the MOT mechanic checked it out for the next ten minutes driving it up and down the road..Yipee..no fault.
Went through the MOT without any faults on the vehicle whatsoever. Paid the fee and got in the car to drive home and about 500 metres later on down the road 3rd Gues..YES THE FAULT APPEARED JUST LIKE MAGIC AGAIN.Now I have my MOT I am buggered again because I cannot sell or part exchange the pile of POOH while the fault is showing.. Lastest suggestion ..it's the ABS pump attitude is ..its simple to fix only about another 900 ..just as simple as that..but of course no guarantees given.
Has any other member had the same problem and it's been fixed permantly if so could you please reply and help with factual suggestions that will stop me from GOING CRAZY..

I thought there was a recall on the 307 for an ABS water ingress fault? Just had my Xsi Hdi done, they had it in for half a day and fitted a new ABS ECU and carried out a free intermediate check as compensation for the 'inconvenience'!

water ingress is indeed on recall. if you havent got a letter it doesnt affect you tho.

this sounds a little more complex than water in the ABS ecu tho...

Hi,

I have the same problem with the ABS...  I've had the car to four different garages with the same results... i.e they have done the diagnostics and can't detect the problem.  

I rang the Peugoet dealership and asked if this was a common problem and the said yes.... Basically the rear sensor needs a serious cleaning, or else replacing.

However in order to do this they will charge 70 quid for the diagnostic fee for the computer test and about 180 quid for the work....  total 250 quid to clean a sensor!  

Pete

not saying this will work but it worked on mine if u cant do anything ur self take it to a local garage and get them to check the gap on the rear sensors if this is too big then whats happened is rust has build up behind the sensor pushing it away making the gap bigger take sensors off knock of rust where the sensor sits put olds back on if gap to big still put small washer between sensor and where it sits to get the gap right again gap should be 1 - 2 mm no more might not be whats wrong with urs but it worth a try if u can do it urself as it works out to be free goodluck let me no if its fixed it.

The issue is (I think) the garage not using a tool which can communicate with the ABS ECU correctly.  You should be getting a fault along the lines of 'incoherence' on that sensor(s).

Its also not as simple as 'people' make out and it may well not be a case of 'cleaning' a sensor.

What if that's not the fault? Say a sensor has failed, a wiring problem, ABS ECU problem, ABS solenoid problem?

Being thorough is our motto - in the long run it saves customers vast sums of money.

sorry i dont have a motto, but if u try the way i said and it works great. but if it doesnt work u have not lost anything apart from ur own time trying to fix it, which i did and it fixed my problem and didnt need to go to main dealer and spend afew 100 but however if it didnt work i would of taken it to the main dealer. so in the long run i am saving my self money, am i not just trying to help other people here with a free way of trying to fix the problem i do hope this might help some people not everyone but a few.
