  2. Apparently it is the fuel pump relay but I cant find one for my car. It is the 1.9 lump but can anyone tell me if a 205 GTI fuel pump relay will fit as the engine is out of a bx gti to be specific

    Rolling Road Graph Thread - Post Your's

    2x graphs overlaid from my engine. Was mapped 11 years apart, the second time around it has a completely different inlet manifold setup which now fits under a bonnet. Light & dark green is new inlet setup, red and blue is from 11 years ago.

    Structural ageing of 205 body

    Pierre the computer programmer and Renee the accountant...! It was the single spot weld at the bottom of the B pillar that involved the most wine I imagine.

    Structural ageing of 205 body

    Yep. But Pierre and Renee were in charge of them. And after a good lunch and a decent bottle of Sauvignon blanc ..........

    The great headlight debate

    Yes they do take the H4 bulbs . Exactly the same as the Valeo

    The great headlight debate

    So the Denji's that are going on Ebay do take H4 bulbs Paul? I'd be happy with them - I've bought some Denji driving lights and they look great so I'm happy to go with the brand if the quality is comparable between the driving lights and headlights.
  10. Not familiar with an auto 405 but possibly a failed crank position sensor?
  11. I suspect if it was an immobilizer problem it wouldnt crank at all? Any progress with this OP?
  12. If it’s anything like my old 405 the immobiliser sometimes kicked in randomly so I had to get out and lock, then unlock the doors and it would fire up

  14. Use easy start spray for testing purpose : - if it starts and runs on spray then there's spark but no fuel - if it doesn't start nor run on spray , usually no spark , or can be both no spark and no fuel (to divide that further : take the plugs out and see if they're wet .. if so then there's fuel , so lacks just the spark) D

    What's it worth

    Paul I will try and get some pics sorted. As far as I know the only thing it doesn't have is a carpet and underlay but centre console is there from a phase 2 GTi.

    The ones you have linked. They are fitted to my car. I actually put my old valeos in the loft earlier. Before they went had a quick comparison with the ones currently fitted, really no difference. Same with the driving lights people loose their minds over SIEM lenses. I've got Denji lenses/reflectors fitted into the old plastic housings. Looks one to me .

    6205 35 - https://www.pieces-de-rechange-classic.com/205/8118-projecteur-droit-h4.html This isn't the correct part number but it's the only H4 headlight the museum has for a 205. I reckon I want a pair of 6205 F0 and 6204 F0 equivalents but I can't find any online that take H4 bulbs. For example these and these but looking closely these are the same Denji items being sold by different people. Paul - where did you get yours from? Ian.
  21. Reading this I think you have a short to earth somewhere. As I understand it if the coolant sensor is earthed the ECU won't allow the car to start. Have you checked the sensor wiring for a short to earth? Likewise have you checked the wiring from the AFM for a short condition? Ordinarily a shirt to earth would remain regardless of the sensor or AFM being connected. I mean the ECU would still sense it but have you rules out any shorts?
  22. Gavin I've just read through this, can you clarify is it an original ECU/engine loom or aftermarket/modded? Also have you actually tried a different ECU? Have you tried a different AFM?

    Structural ageing of 205 body

    No, it's not repairable, the wire needs to be replaced. Exactly, it mainly affects wiring in the engine bay rather than the cabin so I think it's triggered by moisture but could ultimately be due to dissimilar metal corrosion where the terminals meet the wire. I've heard of similar issues with the battery wiring on RC planes etc. though and they seem to think it is electrolytic in some way. I've been using something called Contralube 770 for a while now and I haven't had to replace any wire in that time so it can't be repaired but it looks like it can be prevented. They're not available. All you can get is the terminal pins from Peugeot but they are very over priced, some of them are approx. 50p each!
  24. It doesn't matter if it tries to start on 3 cylinders. Put the plug to the cam case/bare metal and look for a spark / cracking noise. You spray easy start into the intake as you crank it. Can you smell fuel or feel it pumping along the pressure line? If so you may have a failed pressurising valve. Not sure on the 405 if it's common rail the same as the 205- someone will confirm..

    Front Wing Securing Bolt / Screw...

    Got around to trial fitting the flaps and as suggested above the bolt holding on the wing was relatively easy to expose, thanks once again for the info. It also lines up perfectly with the corresponding hole in flap itself, so all in all a straightforward job. Everything is well secured and no drilling required, which is always good. The weather proofing obviously does an excellent job, judging by the condition of the original bolt and hole beneath. The rear flaps are even more simple to fit, but the gap between the bumper lip and tyre means it'll need the wheel off to do properly, so that's for another time.
  26. I have a spare plug, so pull off the ht lead from one of my plugs and put the spare one in the end. Then crank it and see if I get a spark. Knowing my luck it would try and fire up only to have 3 cylinders. How would I prevent that? It isnt likely that it will try to fire but it is possible. Would I spray the flammable stuff into the intake?

    Ian, I bought a pattern set for mine. Came with the H4 bulbs same as fitted to the tatty valeo that I removed.
