Re: Peugeot 308 CC - NOT Behaving itself

Glad your other problems seem to be fixed Mike.

As for the RD45 - I think you recently upgraded this from and RD4 if memory serves.

This fault can occur when such an upgrade has been undertaken on a vehicle that didn't have it originally - and is either down to one of the configuration options in the BSI / Head Unit (any changes made in BSI or Head Unit ECUs will auto update each other) which may have been from a different vehicle and are not compatible with the current vehicle, or may be an incompatible software level in either the Head Unit or the MFD if that was also changed.

I don't have your VIN, but if you can take some screenshots of each page of the BSI configuration pages (best option as not all options will be in the Head Unit or MFD sections), I can go through the options as they relate to your vehicle against what is recorded in your current BSI configuration and see if there are any obvious differences.

Until that is done there will likely be some errors accessing certain functions of the unit I suspect:
Fault codeF303
After sales description of the fault codeConfiguration fault: Not characterised
Description of the diagnosticsConfiguration interrupted or incomplete
Conditions of activation of the diagnosticsThe following conditions have to be met
- Ignition on
- Radio supplied and active (Apart from in economy mode)
Conditions of disappearance of the faultThe configuration has been carried out successfully
Down-grade modes if fault present-
Switching on of the warning lamp and/or warning message-
Main customer complaints likelyNo access to the functions not correctly configured in the audio system
Suspect areasConfiguration procedure

I have added screen shots of the BSI and RD45 configuration in my conversion topic viewtopic.php?f=52&t=61437&p=605092#p605092

In the global test, Diagbox reports the radio as having an unknown ECU, but if you select it, it asks if there is an RD4 or RD45 fitted and seems to accept the RD45.

Perhaps my BSI software is too old to recognise the RD45?

BTW, the radio appears to function correctly, and the engine is running on all cylinders (probably psychological, but it seems to be running smoother than ever)

It seems I wasn't subscribed to that sub-forum Mike, so never saw any of your previous posts. Will have a read now.

Re: Peugeot 308 CC - resting for the southern winter

Post by xantia_v6 »

We are back in France now, so the 308 CC has been put away for the winter. It just ticked over 60,000 km on the day we left.

On reflection, we still really like the car, despite its poor reliability. It has required, on average 2 engine repairs per year since we have had it, compared to the XM, which doing similar duty has required exactly none.

The 308 CC has had an expensive day, 4 new tyres (Bridgestone Potenza S007A) and a new battery.

The battery was not planned for today, but the tyre shop managed to flatten the battery, their jump pack was dead and (I am pretty sure) their jump leads are also faulty.

I think the battery in the car was the original, so more than 8 years old, and on its last legs.

I had to show them how to access the battery on a 308, as they wanted to send it to the dealer, due to it looking so difficult.

Re: Peugeot 308 CC - New tyres for a new summer

One interesting thing was that the tyre fitter reported that one wheel (I think the original spare) was missing it's TPMS sensor. Interesting because the car has never been fitted with TPMS.

The car started life as a dealer demonstrator, so maybe the wheels got swapped or replaced from a car with TPMS?

I've not known any spare wheels to have TPMS fitted (factory)

Yes, but have you heard of a vehicle without TPMS having sensors fitted? See the second post in this topic for the vehicle spec.

There's no VIN in that Mike.

The VIN is VF3**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff] (if I have read the digits correctly)

Almost, that was a 'V' not a 'U' :)

So spec. says "ALLOY WHEEL + STANDARD TYRE" for the spare wheel.

And as for the wheels - you have (4) below, so no (11) or (12) which are the 'bare wheels', steel most likely.

As for TPMS, there's nothing to say TPMS are fitted to spares or not these are generally not fitted to steel wheel spares onvehicles with alloys - but on your car they have specified an alloy for the spare, so it is possible that it may have been replaced with an alloy from a vehicle that did have TPMS at some point if not yourself.

I think that you misunderstood me. The car has 4 wheels with tpms sensors, and one, the original spare, without. But, as far as I know, no tpms monitoring is installed.

I wonder if these wheels (with sensors) are original to THIS car? Maybe somebody in the past bought them second-hand (because they liked the look of them) and they came with those sensors as well?

That doesn't exactly instill confidence does it...? Surely changing a battery can't be that hard...

Think the best one I've had for confusing people was the Skoda Estelle. The battery in that lives in a compartment behind the back seats between the seat and the firewall (rear engined remember), which nobody ever expected to exist.

Used to get really confused looks from people when you put your shopping in the front...then even more so when you put stuff behind the back seats as well!
