206 Auto gearbox fault

    I have a '99 206 1.4 LX auto.

    After approx 3/4 mile from a stone cold start, (i.e. first thing in
    the morning or during the night - but not during the daytime), the Ice
    and Sports warning lights flash alternately. The manual states this is
    a 'disturbance' to the system.

    My dealer looked at it and stated that the ECU showed a fault code
    (BVA_AL4). They cleared the fault from the ECU, and said if it
    re-occurs, a 'Hydraulic Valve Block' will be required, (£574 fitted).

    Has anyone had this fault successfully repaired, or know if the
    Hydraulic valve block repair is likely to work? Any replies would be
    gratefully received before I part with all that money!

    Thank you

    Sorry to not be able to help you directly David, other than to pass on
    my experiences. We have an '01 1.4LX Auto, which had/s a tendency to
    stall when cold. No warning lights though.

    Dealer had the car (overnight) no less than 3 times, and failed to fix
    it no less than 3 times.

    I fully expect the problem to recur next winter, when I shall be
    taking it back to another dealer. No doubt after the 3yrs is up, they
    will recommend some other unbelievably expensive sounding repair like

    Moral: Don't take the first dealer's word as gospel. Try another, or
    an independent Peugeot specialist.

    Best of Luck
