Im guessing that because your friend reckoned it was the washer
bottle, that it looks a bit like a bottle. On the 306 there is a
coolant level warning light to tell you the coolant is too low.

So, until you figure out for sure what it is, Id check the coolant
level - running low is not what you want on these engines..

Sadly on my 306 the sensor was malfunctioning because the coolant was
full of air, which in turn was being caused by the cylinder head
gasket having failed.. So Im not saying that you have a serious
problem, but whatever it is check the coolant level, top up if
required, and keep an eye on it. If you are losing coolant, you need
to find out why.

Cheers
Craig

no checked everything all fine,brother owned the car before me and it
often came on with him ,another friend has suggested it could be oil
filter warning light ,as it,s orange it,s obviously not major , all
the major warning lights are in the middle of the dashboard

I also have that on my 1995 405TD. I also have no clue what it's for
although I suspect the fuel filter bowl water detector.
Mine came on intermittently for a few hundred miles, then permanently.
I changed the fuel filter a couple of days ago and cleared the water
out. The light went out after, but now it's intermittent again.
I can't believe that Peugeot don't put their user manuals on their web
site.....

Hi Kerry,

I've today done a bit more investigation, pulling the water sensor
plug off puts that damned light out..... so, it is the 'water in fuel'
warning light. I drained the fuel filter again and the light is now
off, we'll see how far it goes.

If you have a later model 405 (mine is 1995) then the water switch is
at the back of the fuel filter housing, a bit awkward to get to but it
unscrews by hand easily.

Hope this helps

Richard

Richard ,

Unfortunately the book i received was a year too early and still non
the wiser ,Mines a 1995 as well but what i dont understand is weve
changed the oil filter , it was ok for about a week and now only
occasionally comes on , was wondering if maybe the warning light is
possibly faulty? As you say its ridiculous they dont put the manuals
on the net, i have a Calibra as well and i managed to get the full
operating instructions for my alarm system which isnt the standard one
with wiring diagrams the lot ,absolutely crazy ,
Kerr
