    When I try to start my 206 1.4 HDi nothing happens, the ignition light and
    everything else come on but other than what sounds like a relay kicking in
    there is nothing, even the solenoid doesn't make a sound. It diod this a
    couple of weeks ago but after a few attempts it started but tonight i had to
    push start it. it starts ok now but is bound to let me down again. Anyone
    know what the problem is, the battery leads seem ok

  2. How do you know the leads are ok? when it has happened to me in the past, it
    has generally been resolved by tapping/re-securing the connection to the
    battery. On one other instance, I had trouble with an earth connection down
    near the solenoid, and on another occasion, a sticky solenoid. With the
    latter, a thump with a hammer generally released it (until some months later
    I got around to replacing the starter).

  3. The best time to find this type of fault is when it is present else you are
    testing for something that is not there,
    Sounds like a poor connection or sticking solenoid in the starter.
    Start by checking that all earth straps and the Peugeot battery patent
    clamps are clean not corroded and making good contact.
    Next time it happens switch on to full beam and then try to start the car.
    IF the lights dim appreciably you either have a stuck solenoid or poor
    contact in the battery live or earth wires.

    Thanks for the replies. The battery leads are securely fixed and are clean
    (at the battery end anyway). I did the thing with the lights but they didn't
    go dim when I turned the key. The annoying thing is that the car starts
    perfectly now after bump starting it. It did the same thing a few weeks ago
    but after trying 7 or 8 times it suddenly turned over

    If the lights don't dim then current is not going through the starter for
    one of various reasons. Burnt out armature winding, worn brushes not making
    contact, solenoid not making contact, a broken lead between battery and
    starter, pre-engaged fork not operating etc. etc.

    Thanks for the help, I've just had it checked over and it seems to be the
    starter. Oh well, more expense.
    Cheers

    Ring round different shops that sell car parts. you will be saving money
    by doing that.

    I need it doing really quick though and it looks like I'm going to have to
    pay handsomely for the privelage. Sod's law though that I'll have the
    starter replaced and in a few weeks time the f***er will break down again.

    Optimism is a wonderful thing my friend,
    Cars where basically designed to breakdown, even RRoyce,
    we just hope they don't !!!
