— Pyrotechnics' Lifespan Increased —
Peugeot France has conducted extensive testing on aged airbags and seat belt pre-tensioners. As a result of these tests it was decided that the service life of these devises can be extended by 5 Years without compromising safety. At the time of the introduction of air bags and seat belt pre-tensioners in 1994 it was recommended for all pyrotechnic safety equipment to be replaced after a service life of 10 Years. Peugeot will now guarantee serviceability for 15 years. This new recommendation by the manufacturer applies to all Peugeot models.


— Change In BSI Configuration —
It has come to our attention that the Show room mode configuration method in BSI has changed.
It is now necessary to configure this item to "inactive." Unless this configuration is carried out, the BSI will be prevented from activating the eccomony mode, which can lead to excessive drainage on the battery.
For more information see the sample configurations in the "Diagnostics" section.

This configuration setting should always be checked at pre-delivery, after a BSI update or when a vehicle is in the shop with electrical problems. This news flash concerns all multiplexed 206 and 307 models.
