VEHICLE – 2012 Peugeot 3008
ISSUE – Hybrid drive system does not switch to “READY” mode and engine will not start
DIAGNOSIS & SOLUTION:
A 2012 Peugeot 3008 hybrid with a fault on the hybrid drive system has been brought to us on a recovery vehicle following bodywork repairs. The hybrid drive system does not switch to “READY” mode and the engine will not start. We are not hybrid vehicle specialists and we are reluctant to get too involved in repairing this car. Do you know of any possible repairs we could carry out to fix this car?
Yes, we have been made aware of the fault you describe on Peugeot 3008 hybrid models. While the fault can be corrected by a competent technician we strongly advise that all personnel working on hybrid vehicles are suitably trained to carry out the necessary operations. When working on high voltage circuits and components ensure all safety related guidelines are adhered to. From the symptoms you have described the fault is likely to be due to the hybrid battery pack isolator not fitted correctly. Ensure that the hybrid battery pack isolator is fitted correctly (see fig.1.). This should rectify the fault.
