Question about Peugeot 206

2 Answers

I have a Peugeot 206. One headlight isn't working. I've checked the bulb by putting it on the other side. The connector also seems ok. What else could be causing the problem ? Grateful for any help.

If you are positive that the bulb and connector are OK...then there could be several root causes:
Bad wiring:
There could be a short somewhere between the connector and fuse/relay or ground.
But you need to figure out first ... is it BOTH the high and low beams that are out on that side of the car?
I think your bulb has 3 spades for a combination high/low beam bulb. Knowing which line is dead helps on figuring out which wire(s) is the issue. If both high and low do not work ... then it is the ground wire.
If you have a voltmeter you can test out the wiring.
Bad Light Control Module (if your car has this; I could not confirm)
I am not sure if the Peugeot has a light control module but on some Saabs there is one and it caused your same symptom. Read link to learn more

SOURCE: lowbeam headlight not working

I went to the dealer, the parts for this are back ordered... must be a common problem.

The terminal clips weaken over time, then fail. They need to be replaced, if you go the the Volvo dealer and ask they may help you out. Failing that, you could contact Volvo directly and ask them. They may make good for you. If nobody will help you, maybe the NHSTA should know about this saftey defect...

chapmnfarm: your head lights use a "2" fuse system.
one for the left and one for the right.
The fuse box you are looking for is under the hood on the passenger's side. It is a black box roughly 8 inches long and 4-5 inches wide. When you remove the cover, you will see fuses and relays. What you are looking for is the section in the box which has a cluster of 7 fuses. 3 in one row and 4 in the other. On the outer parameter are two relays. The fuses you are interested in are located in the row of 4 fuses, with the two closest to the "L" shaped part of the box. Both of those should be 15 amp fuses.
The fuse below those should be a 20 amp which is the lighting switch and the one below it is a 15 amp which is for the interior lights and the clock.
Check your harness grounds in the engine compartment near the area you have the problem. There are ground wires which come out of the harness on both sides of the core support. The wires are black in color and have "EYES" crimped onto the ends of the wires. Both of them will probably be located about 4-6 inches below the upper tie bar on each side of the radiator. Odds are that the eyes will be large enough to pass a 6mm bolt through.
I hope what I have given you will resolve your problem. Lem me know,,good luck>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

SOURCE: Random Overheating Problem on Peugeot 206

It sounds like your thermostat has gone bad and sticking close, Replace the Thermostat and Antifreeze. When replacing the thermostat, buy a fail safe thermostat so you will not have a overheating problem when the thermostat fails. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

Peugeot 206 indicator clicking fast


Get the correct wattage globe. I am suspecting that the resistance of the globe you used as a replacement is lower than the original globe that was in the left bulb position.
Had this problem with a car myself.
The lower resistance changes the timing of the flash .
Maybe get a replacement globe from a Peugeot Dealer if you can't find the correct wattage globe any where else ..

Stoplights not working peugeot 206 looked at all bulbs and fuses all good


Check the contacts at the bulb. My old Peugeot 505 had to have the bulbs pressed firmly to the "printed circuit" type connector. As the bulb contact became worn over the years the contact lessened. On the old type bulbs you could add solder to the contacts and they would be good as new. On your vehicle you may need to replace the bulb. Use diaelectric grease when re-assembling to not let air or water corrode the contacts.

My back light and one of my headlights are not working on my peugeot 206. My boyfriend changed the bulb in the back light but it's still not working. All of the fuses are ok. What else could it be?


Hi mate,
This is a common problem on the rear lights on 206's.
They have a problem with water leaking into the units and over time this corrodes the bulb holders and sometimes the wiring plugs. the only remedy is to replace the bulb holder unit.
As for the head lights they may just require a pair of bulbs.

My peugeot 206 break lights dont work. Only the top center light. Which is only part working.


Since the center one is working it means tht the fuse to them allis ok as they are connected together, you will haveto check the rear bulbs and probably replace them both sides.
Hope this helps!
