    Peugeot 306 no lights or heater motor

    My sons P reg Peugeot 306 Diesel had no main beam, sidelights, rear
    lights dash illumination and and the heater motor was not working. Fuse
    7 under the dash had been replaced and a so called expert quoted £400
    to replace the wiring loom that runs under the radiator.

    The cause of the problem turned out to be dry joints (poor soldered
    connections) on the Printed Circuit board inside the fuse box under the
    steering wheel.

    Remove all 10 plug/socket connectors to the fuse box (they are colour
    coded blue, green, red, yellow, brown, black, white, grey, brown and
    orange.

    Remove the fuse box assembly and prise open the clips to reveal the
    printed circuit board.
    Examine all the soldered connections for arced/poor connections and
    re-solder.

    Re-assemble and plug in the 10 plugs.

    This cured the problem and all lights and heater work fine.
