Help! Decent Peugeot specialist in Midlands?

We have an intermittent problem with our Peugeot Boxer (on our 2006 Autocruise Stargazer) which has been to our local Peugeot main garage three times (following breakdowns) and they STILL can't find out the problem!

Basically on trying to start it will fire but not turn over. Wait an hour...or maybe the next day and it can start no problem - but you can switch it off and try again straight away and it MAY choose not to start. A little inconvenient to say the least...

They've re-programmed the ECU* twice and have just done it again but even they aren't convinced this is the problem but they've failed to find out anything really wrong with it. We await its return next week but the garage is 'hinting' we take it elsewhere as they are stumped (and no doubt fed up of having it back and spending their time on looking for the fault and not getting anymore money from us!). The RAC are starting to get a bit fed up of running us around on a low loader too!

Our faith in the garage having actually fixed it this time is minimal...and our faith in our much-loved motorhome is also a little shaky.

Can anyone recommend anywhere that really knows its stuff??

Thanks for any help

Karen

Two areas to consider, I had a similar problem which was an intermittent fault on a fuel pump relay, a sod to isolate as it would work when anyone tested it.
If you can find a scrap yard with a similar van in and can "borrow" the relays, try swapping them.
Otherwise in ten years a previous owner may have fitted an aftermarket immobiliser, I've also suffered from this, and again a sod to track down.
Any extra wires under the bonnet?

Sorry to hear of your woes, but 'The Midlands' is a big place so can you be more area specific?

Nick Fisher of Euro Truck Hire at Leicester aka Euroserv on here is very knowledgeable and supportive but he is mainly a Fiat specialist.

Nevertheless he might be able to help if you give him a call or an email even if it is only to point you towards someone competent that might be able to help.

He also carries out repairs and servicing at realistic prices!

The Peugeot garage at Bilston does motorhomes but I haven't used them that often.

Budgens at Shrewsbury have a really good mechanic, he is a motorhome owner and really helpful, sorry I have forgotten his name, but worth giving them a call, they really helped us.

The dealership referred to here is Regal Motors. They have looked after our van since we bought it in 2008 and we find them helpful.
