2003 Peugeot 307 SE 2.0 from UK and Ireland
Nice car shame about the electronic faults
1 car was not clean when I picked it up.
2 unfinished paintwork.
3 The seat upholstery on the back seat was not in position.
4 The automatic programed setting for the clock/date was not working & kept reverting to zero.
5 When driving the vehicle it intermittently stalled on number of occasions, both stationery and when pulling away.
6 On 3/8/03 I switch the engine off, tried locking with keypad and found the car would not lock. I had to resort to locking it manually. Following this I tried to start the car up and it would not start for 45 minutes insofar as during all that time there were NO electrics operable at all.
7 On 11.8.03 from 9.45am I tried to start the car up, but again there was no power at all IE no electrics, I spoke to George Heath Motors and they said that they will make arrangements to get the car picked up, as a mother of two young children I was appalled this did not happen, I had to make my own arrangement to call out a recovery company to collect the car and deliver it back to the garage.
Not happy at all with the vehicle very disgusted the way the all matter is been handle this includes me speaking to Peugeot UK Management.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Truly awful reliability for a 2003 car with only 200 miles on the clock. Very dangerous when it stalls when pulling out of junctions. If you don't get any joy from dealer see if you get any better luck at another. See if they will have the car back and get a full refund as it is defective goods. I drive a 1986 volvo 740 estate with over 130,000 miles on the clock and find it very reliable, and it has very many happy reviews from customers on this site.

I am a single mom of two and have had soooooooo many problems with my 99 breeze. The dealer where I bought it says it is my problem. I would NEVER EVER buy another one EVER!!! So if you are thinking of getting one, DON'T!

The problem you seem to have is not with the electrics, Its the battery connections.
I had similar problems after returning to my car (307 Rapier 2.0 HDi) after a weeks holiday. It seem the battery connectors are not on tight enough and keep disconnecting. Use a tye wrap to keep in place then the car should be OK.
