Hi,

Hoping somebody can help point me in the right direction with this weird issue, for sometime now my Peugeot 208 will incorrectly display the “Front right hand door open” warning message on the drivers dashboard, there is a loud beep and the interior lights come on, you can also hear the locks clicking and the little red light on the manual lock button goes out - All this whilst the door is firmly closed whilst driving.


This mostly occurs when driving on rough patches of road or taking large corners towards the right hand side. I’ve also notice that it happens more if the drivers window is half way down.

It’s driving me bonkers!?!

Only coincidence related to the window is that some time back I had to have a new regulator on the drivers side as the cable snapped and window wouldn’t go up or down, but that was quite some time before this message has started appearing!

Help!!

Thanks

Matt

Hi Both,

Nope, I'm still getting the problem an appears to be getting worse! - It's doing my head in... I've taken it to a garage and they have checked the cables and can't seem to find any fault.

Have either of you got anywhere with the problem yet?

A couple of things:-

1 - When the car is park slightly pointing downhill then I get more of an issue with the doors not locking, when car is pointing up hill - never a problem!

2 - If driving with the Drivers side window down - then the door open message appears more often then with it closed (Taken door card off and can't see anything in the window mechanism that could be touching / catching / shorting against the door lock

3 - When making right turns - the message often appears

4 - When hitting rough patch of road or speeds bumps issue happens more - but more so when the front left hand side wheel / tyre hit the impact - are there any sensors anywhere under the car that can be the issue??

I've tried reseating all the fuses in case something was lose and popping out when hitting any bumps but doesn't appear to be.

Is there anything within / under the steering wheel that is connected / related to the lock? For it to happen more so when making right hand turns.

This is a 3 Door Peugeot 208, I've been struggling to find a new / 2nd Hand 3 Door replacement lock / actuator to swap the dam thing over to see if that actually fixes it although don't want to spend silly money on new genuine if it's not the actual issue!

Thanks

Matt
