Hi fellow 208ers,

Did anyone have any trouble with their media systems in the cold UK weather the last few days? Whenever the temperature drops below around 4°C my touchscreen becomes unresponsive to touch and I also get the the following error about my system being unavailable:

Not yet, my previous experience of Peugeot's technical abilities has been less than stellar so I'm somewhat reluctant as I expect I'll be wasting my time with an intermittent issue that has a low chance of being replicated while in for diagnosis! Was sort of hoping someone else has taken their car in with this issue to see what Peugeot's response to them has been.Edited by: BlueFin

I started having this problem after having a fix for the radio changing stations at will. My car is in for service on Monday. It will be one of the issues I am raising. I will let you know of anything useful

I just got a new screen fitted last week after originally going in at the end of November. I had this same issue along with it changing tracks, stations and making calls. The dealership were useless and did not have a clue (it had been in for a whole week then they said I would have to wait until another firmware was released) After many calls to Peugeot, being told it was still on back order etc, I got one fitted. The plastic trim that surrounds the screen is slack on the right hand side, I don't want to take it back to them so was wondering if anyone knows how these are removed so i could try and fit it properly myself?

Even though I had the service I am not sure that the Multimedia error has been fixed. The parking sensor error was fixed - supposedly a reconfig I believe. I have to say I have little faith in the knowledge database that the engineers have to draw upon. My experience feels that they are always on the defensive rather than actually trying to really get a long term resolution.

Mine did this this morning, only bought it on monday. After ten min drive I dropped my daughter off and when I started the engine again it worked fine. Still rather annoyed as only bought it monday!

Dealer said they had discovered a fault but it hadnt been replicated when they guy and his laptop looked at it.

It's ridiculous that Peugeot are not on top of this by now. I waited around two and a half months to get my screen replaced but I have heard people are waiting longer than that. It is just a shambles.

Take photo or video evidence as the dealership I went to "couldn't get it to do it". Just contact Peugeot and you'll get it under warranty.

Thanks for feedback. Who/where did you contact Peugeot. On previous issues I must admit to little resolution - if they have not seen/do not understand the problem for them it does exist - in my experience.

Take a picture of the error message and take it to your local peugeot dealer. They'll most likely want to do a update on the system(which won't work). You'll then need a complete new touchscreen.

I've got to admit the guy was pretty helpful, the dealership was a joke though lol. All the best, let us know how it goes for you!

I did ask them last time to reinstall but they said it was not necessary! I am keeping a log of incidents to see if I can find a pattern, but I am not holding my breath

Will keep you posted

I am also in the same boat (well car actually haha) as you lot and am also keeping a log of incidents along with photos and videos to document it, although obviously this can only be done at a stand still. I bought mine second hand just over a month ago from another dealer and have had nothing put problems with the multimedia system. It has already been in once and had a smug update but the problems still remain, luckily it is still under warranty, just!

I am wondering would a new screen update me to the latest one that includes Apple CarPlay?

Both me and my wife have 208's, mine is a 13 reg GTI and hers is a 12 reg 1.2 allure. Both suffer with random errors that show up on touchscreen. My wifes 208 has no sat nav or DAB but an error popped up saying 'GPS Fault' and locked up even though she doesnt have sat nav! Mine randomly changes source and radio stations and my firmware on the system is the latest (with sat nav and DAB). Every car i have had the factory installed radios are rubbish and im beginning to think the same about these! If these were easy to install a third party one i would.
