Peugeot 508 RT6 repair

Post by Zn1 »

Hi guys, i need some help. My multimedia stopped working overnight it was all okay i parked car in the morning multimedia stoped working. Fan on rt6 turns on, when i hold eject for 30s it restarts but it wont push out CD or give power to screen or anything else. I put rt6 from another 508 it works i put sd card from that 508 into mine rt6 it doesnt work, i put mine sd card into his rt6 and his rt6 ejects cd and asks for firmware repair. Question is what should i look after what are the most common problems? Did my card reader died?

You really shouldn't be swapping microSD cards between vehicles as they are specific to each vehicle and the vehicle options fitted.

Have a read of this thread int he RT6 Forum. You probably have a failing / failed SD Card.

Please use the Full Post Editor & Preview button to upload your images. Use the Attachments, tab, then upload and PLACE your images.

If using a new MicroSD card, and you have first copied the data over using Mirascripts, that should be all you need if installing a new MicroSD card. The firmware will create the partitions automatically. Then you can use the second part of Mirascripts to copy the user data back over to ensure the functions and equipment will continue to work with your vehicle.

I rendered both clips to 720p i managed to attach both of them, i cant use mirascript to backup my sd card content, i pulled out content via windows i removed hidden files put sd cwrd back into module and tried runing mirascript on usb stick to backup on usb but it doesnt turn anything on, just black screen, if i got it right i can use empty sd card and bootable firmware on usb stick in car so it can make itself new partitions and new firmware? Btw i found this inside is this stock? Tracker, satelite phone what is it?

There is usually a tiny hole at the front that you can put a straightened out paperclip in to eject it.

This forum can directly display YouTube videos - so if you have uploaded your videos or have them in Youtube, just paste the URL links in your post.

Back to the questions:

1) No that is not stock. It looks like some sort of tracking or telemetry wiring for a black box or some other device.
2) If you were for example installing a new MicroSD card, then simply installing that and loading the firmware on USB would be all you need for the unit to create the partitions and the operating system.

The problem is that if using the latest V2.86 firmware without first copying your user data files, then this upgrade will very likely loose all your configuration and that of the vehicle, so parking assistance camera, vehicle options, language settings and other features are defaulted to not available or default languages. The RT6 gets locked into secure mode requiring PSA server access to configure. It can't be done in offline mode with a clone.

Ok, so first no need to make bootable USB. Just format to FAT32 and copy the extracted V2.86 firmware files to the USB - nothing else should be on there.

Then start vehicle and insert USB. Normally a message would come up on the screen saying update found and asks you if you want to upgrade. In the case where there is no operating system it should just start to read the USB and start installing. The fact that you have nothing on the display screen is also concerning - as now you can't see what's going on.

After couple days of frustration I give up on my device. It still restarts after 15 mins, it doesnt want to pull DVD with firmware, actualy it doesnt pull any cd id it, it doesnt read firmware from USB stick, I tried couple of them, unit just restart, which brings me to conclusion that unit processor is bricked or there is hardware problem with unit. I will send to repair shop so they can have a look at it, they charge little more than 200$ for repair. Thanks Marc and other admins for help ♥
