    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

    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
