If the Anti pollution warning light is coming on the possible causes are endless. If the car is driving ok then that is a good sign, but please remember that modern management systems can mask problems quite well. The safest advice is to get it looked at and see what fault codes are appearing and then a diagnosis can begin, as leaving it is not going to be a good thing, it can go from a minor problem to more serious issues. At least the light is not flashing, which usually means an emission compliance problem and even more serious, but even so I would advise protecting your vehicle by getting it checked out as soon as possible to avoid potential damage.
----------
A fault in the ignition can cause an engine misfire and unburnt fuel gets into the exhaust causing the anti-pollution light to be triggered.

Check the ignition system for signs of damp or loose connections.------- I suggest get the car scanned at autozone service center.Its absolutely free to get car scanned.This will show the problem if you receive the error code.-------- Thanks.Helpmech.

SOURCE: my car says 'anti pollution fault' when I start it

If you drive your car more likely for short distances then engine will not get hot enough to start the regenerating process to clean the cloged particulate filter resulting in a antipollution fault.

Drive your car to a motorway or empty dual carriage way (best in nights). The temperature meter should be showing above 60°C when you begin with this process. Place 3rd gear and drive your car at 3000-3500 rev /min for 15 to 20 minutes to let the ecu to kick the regeneration process. Keep driving car for 15 minutes in this state will be enough to clean your catalytic converter and your problem will be solved. But if it doesn't then the problem is with your catalytic converter and more probabily you need to change it.

See if you can get the codes read, your model often has a particulate filter and all that entails but not allways on the 2,0 HDi, it seems too much of a coincidence to not be connected.

SOURCE: anti pollution light, ESP ABS, engine warning

Those are multiple problems. ABS is antilock brake system. Normally this comes on when you need to replace your brakes. Also replace the engine oil in your car and have your car tuned. The check engine light will more than likely go off. If not then the mechanic will tell you what needs to be done to make it go off. Hope this helps

Depollution system faulty the engine is dead car want go


Is there any fault indication on the dash where the radio display is.
Anti pollution is basically citroens way of saying emissions system so it could be as simple as a loose emissions pipe but from what you say and the car does not run it could be your catalytic converter (part of the exhaust system) has failed causing the engine management system to cut in and protect the engine.
If there is no fault apart from anti pollution showing in the radio display find someone with a diagnostic machine to give you a better idea of the fault. Hope this helps a bit.

Where is the anti pollution filter located in a peugeot 307 petrol


There is no such thing as an anti pollution filter. All modern cars have complicated pollution control devices on them, and unless you know what you are doing and have the specialised test equipment, there is little that you can do yourself. If there is a light on the dash, then you are going to have to take it to a Peugeot mechanic. They will be able to do a diagnostic test using a laptop and hopefully this will narrow the fault down. They will then be able to give you a cost estimate to repair it. It is unlikely you will be able to fix this yourself.

Citroen c crosser anti pollution light


Anti pollution light, I never heard of a Check engine light being called that.
Read on please.

Hello
When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

Anti pollution light comes on once car has been driven for twenty mins or so


I had a problem with "Unblock diesel filter and Anti-pollution fault". After reading a few answers for this I decided to take car into the mountains for a good workout. Usually my trips are short and often therefore the exhaust was not getting hot enough to burn off the diesel residue in the Particle filter. In 40 mins of 3,5000 revs mainly in 3rd gear nothing showed up on the computer. Think this problem is sometimes caused by the engine not getting hot enough for long enough.
