Key stuck in ignition of Peugeot 309, what to do ?

Ignition problem

Message par missa91 » 18 mars 2011, 00:41

In my 1.3 simca i had some big problems with the ignition. First it started cutting out. So you drive and when it hits like 80, 90 kph it turns the engine off. The RPM meter shows 0 and there is no power getting to the spark plugs. In drive you turn the key back and back to running and it starts back up again. So i got a hold of a Bosch ignition coil and replaced mine. problem resolved, i thought.

After about 30000km which i drove in less than 5 months it gave out completely on the freeway. There was no way of starting the engine. So i had some friends go by a junk yard and get me a spare. Once replaced, problem resolved.

Someone told me that there are different manufacturers for the ignition coil, ignition control unit and the distributor. And if you mix parts from different manufacturers you blow one of them.

Now i have a DUCELLIER ignition control unit and a ignition coil of the same firm, but I don’t know which is the distributor. How can i identify the part. Please help, I don’t want to be stuck somewhere again.

Hi there,
Could you post some pics of your engine so we can identify parts?
And have a look at the picture and tell me which model you’ve got:

If you’ve got the first model (the bottle-like one), you should really have a second one as spare. On my 1.3 Simca engine, which is identical to yours, I’ve got the 3rd model (bottom), the car now has a little less than 200 000 kms and the gnition coil never broke.

Is this part OK on your car?

I have the same engine too and I already needed to change this part, the wires and the coil. I took one on a Peugeot 205 engine.

Actually I’ve got the bottle like one, but I also have the third part in the picture. The Bottle like part is the ignition coil, and the third one is the electronic ignition control. But that is not the question I was asking. The distributor is the one I’m interested in. The picture above shows a distributor cap, that is a lot similar to mine, but the connectors are different. Mine don’t have the electrical connections outside, but rather inside the plastic.

Anyhow, what I am looking to identify is the part on which the distributor cap is fitted.
