Peugeot 508 Common Problems and Solutions
If you have noticed that there has been an obvious breeze of cold air, down towards the drivers foot well area, this problem is caused by a leak in the heating system.
This problem can be fixed by taking the car to a dealer, and having them repair the leak in the heating system.
Automatic handbrake problem
There have been issues with the automatic electric handbrake not working properly. If you have found that the automatic handbrake is not working, particularly in cold weather, you need to have a software update, in order to fix the problem.
This issue was subject to a recall, and Peugeot will fix this free of charge, as it is a manufacturing fault. This problem can be resolved, by Peugeot giving the ECU a software update.
Window wiper problem
It has been reported that there have been problems, associated with the window wipers hitting the bodywork, particularly on the drivers side. This could either be caused by a software issue, or the wiper arm may need adjusting.
You should take the car to your Peugeot dealer, as the car should still be under warranty. They should, in fact be fixed without any cost to you. They will either make the adjustment to the wiper arm, or give you the software upgrade.
Sat Nav problem
It has been heard, that there have been a few problems with the satellite navigation system, in the Peugeot 508. On some occasions there have been reported problems with the sat nav turning itself off, and problems of it not being in the right location. This could either be a software issue, or a problem with the actual device.
Take the car to a dealer, and have them look at the sat nav for you. They will be able to diagnose the exact problem and should fix it free of charge, under warranty.
