Arrival of 2003 Peugeot 206 XT

My brother owns this 2003 Peugeot 206 XT manual car, and a couple (few) years ago it’s engine died on the way to the shops and it displayed a ‘Check Engine Light’. I thought it had been relegated to the scrap heap, but upon a recent visit to his house I noticed it there. From what I understand it has sat there under his carport feeling unloved and getting filthier as time marched on.

I suggested if I could get it to my place, I could look and see if I could find the fault, and then ascertain if the car was economically viable to get running back on the road, or to sell it off for parts etc.

I have both an OBD2 Bluetooth, OBD2 serial and a LEXIA 3 PP2000 diagnostic interface that I had bought for my previous attempt at diagnosing a Peugeot 306 XT that had AL4 automatic transmission failure. It has since gone to the crushers. Hopefully I’ll be able to diagnose the fault. Both my brother and I are in no rush to get it back on the road, but I have over a week off work to have a look at it.

Whilst waiting for the car to be transported via a call for help on AirTasker I have got a quote for the windscreen which is cracked and done a search on the VIN at VIN Decoder to find out the details of the car:
