You might see if there is an optical sensor near the camshaft pulley, or find a mechanic at the Peugeot dealer who will tell you.
In the Killing a diesel thread Ecoxantia gave a link to a detailed text on HDi engines. I mentioned there that I found my cam sensor, but unplugging it didn't stop the engine, only prevented it from starting. Unplugging the crankshaft sensor had no effect (didn't stop engine, didn't prevent from starting, no code). I didn't get to try pulling both at the same time before it got cold, but my new approach will be either killing the low-pressure fuel pump, or grounding the fuel pressure sensor in the high-pressure rail. Both will have to wait until spring, as the car frozen solid (the last week saw temperatures as low as -30*C/-22*F, so the car wouldn't start anyway).

What matters is where you're going, not how fast.
