Citroen Xsara Picasso

Hi, I keep getting an engine fault warning message flash on my dash , no light stays on , I have loss of complete loss of acceleration until I either shift up or down a gear then I am able to accelerate again! My car was in for an mot the day before this started happening and the garage had to fit me a new headlight wiring loom as mine had melted , just wondering if this is complete coincidence it has happened just after it has been worked on at a garage or could the new wiring have something to do with it . It has happened at least once every day since . Regards Joanne

Answers

Your car has gone into 'limp mode' - the engine fault needs to be read and actioned/cleared. Ebay do a very good code reader for the car for about £12 which works well on the picasso. You simply remove the coin box/small panel (it pulls off) and plug in the code reader/resetter. Turn on ignition and read code(s) - make a note of them and look them up on teh internet; it may be the air filter sensor ( easily replaced as it's just a plastic bit with two jubilee clips) or a dirty EGR valve which can be cleaned or replaced or better blanked off with a blanking kit as it will reoccur. The resetter will clear down the fault codes and turn teh dash light off. Wait for any to reappear and read teh codes again -these will be the real fault codes- sometimes old ones build up which arent the issue. If you experience the limp mode, try to pull over, switch off ignition and wait- it will most proably reset after a few startups and last a while. EGR valve I think, but could be air filter sensor or anthing else. .. garage will charge you £50 to read teh codes anyway before any work is done- the codes can eb looked up on internet and cause worked out from that. Invest in a code reader and resetter. they are worth it and work on any car after 2000,, diesels after 2002. Good luck. Robert Lloyd from Torfaen

Recently bought my Citroen 1 week ago, and noticed that the interior light for the central door lock button (in the middle of the car) flashes a red light continuously. All doors are closed and locked, but the flashing light never stops. Is this a fault? will it drain my battery? or is it normal on these cars to have a flashing red light?

Simples, start your engine then looking at the button that adjusts your mirrors just push it away from you and the mirrors will come back to life as before. This happens when someone locks the car from the inside and the mirror adjustment button is nearest to the driver, only god knows why took me ages to suss it out. Malks from West Yorkshire

Citroen C4 Grand Picasso

hi I have a c4 grand Picasso 2008 I am having a problem with my heater blower all the controls work perfect some times it works when it does its only for a few seconds if any one as got a clue can you pleas email me thanks

Answers

I had the same plus other times the fan once running would sound noisy. I was certain the motor and its bearings were beginning to fail. The car was still under new car warranty at this stage. Fortunately 2 weeks later, having had the car serviced by the Citroen dealer I bought it from, the driver side foot well carpet was flooded by rain water in part because I had left it for 2 weeks. The solution which made the erratic turning on and off, and the sometimes noisy fan motor vanished once I found and cleaned it was the windscreen base water drain ! It turns out the driver side rubber drain boot was blocked by a black plastic windscreen wiper clip [from the factory as it could not fit thru the holes in the windscreen base grill] which in turn collected smaller pieces to totally block this self draining rubber boot. It now takes me 3 minute a side to remove, clean and refit. My dealer explained how the windscreen motor, base grill etc must be removed but this is not true. To remove these lefthand and righthand drains pull and bend the small vertical section of the wheel arch lining near the front spring down at the corner where it and the corner closest to the mid of the car [the rear inner corner], its just behind the spring. YOu can do this without wheel removal. Once pulled and folded forward you will see the rectangular shaped black rubber boot, pull this off, clean it and put back. Some how stopping water getting into the motor stopped all my fan motor problems. The motor has done more than 100,000km without fail since I did this. I hope this helps. Simon from Cork

Citroen C4 Picasso

Hi, can someone tell me how to put the windows up without having to start the engine, just switching the ignition is no good, Thanks Dave

Answers

Hi Dave, do you mean putting the windows up while you're sat in the car or after you get out? The windows stay active for around a minute after turning the ignition off, if you want to put them up or down after this time you must switch your ignition on. If your battery life is low you will go into economy mode and you'll need to start your engine to power them. If you want to put your windows up when you get out (if you've sat in the car with them down for more than a minute) just get out and when you lock the car keep your finger firmly pressed on the lock button for a second or 2 and all the windows that are down will go up as the car locks.

The message reads 'Anti pollution system faulty'. then on occasion it reads, 'parking brake faulty', with this the car it slowly stalls and if I switch off and back on, the car seems fine. I have had diagnostics done by my mechanic and he seems to think its an energizing issue. They managed to do this, however after 2 days I have the same message and the engine light is back on. I am leaving on holiday soon travelling to Bristol from London and I'm concerned about the car on the motorway. Can anyone give me some ideas please?

Citroen Xsara Picasso 2003

Hi. I have just been asked for insurance purposes does my Citroen Xsara Picasso have an immobiliser but how can I tell? I know it doesn`t have an alarm fitted. Reading some web pages it appears it might be Factory Standard Fit but I don`t want to answer my insurance company incorrectly. What shoud I say?

Answers

For some time now UK regulations have speciifed that each new vehicles must have an immobiliser fitted. This was to reduce car theft and has apparently been very successful. This is why car thieves now centre their activities on stealing the vehicle key first., e.g. by using a fishing rod to steal from a hall table though your letter box . Any way, I’m not sure when the law came in - I’ve looked on the web but cannot find a definitive reference, but your main dealer should be able to tell you. Your insurance company should also know. Of course if you say you don’t think you have one then they will have to charge you more! Andrew Brookes from Kent

You didn’t mention what year your Picasso is but I have a 2003 2.0lt HDI Picasso and yes it is fiited with a factory fitted immobiliser. It is not alarmed but it is immobilised when you lock you vehicle, that’s why you need a key to un-immobilise it, because there is a chip in the key that turns it on and off. Check with your local Citroen dealer, giving your VIN number, then you can safely notify your insurance company that (depending on the result from your dealer) it is fitted with one Peter Mayo from Kent

Yes. Picassos do have immobilisers. It’s in the key system. You may se a red flashing light on dash to say its activated Karen from Essex

Citroen C4 Picasso

I am looking at a Citroen C4 Picasso Estate 1.6 THP Exclusive+ 5dr EAT6 advertised in a dealer in Stoke on Trent. It's 18 months old and has had 2 owners 13 months and 5 months. It's got 4500 miles and full service history. It feels a very low mileage and the dealer isn't that forthcoming about why its hanged hands twice with such a low mileage. It seems to good to be true. Any clues about this model? It was revamped in the latest issue. I need a petrol as I only do 4000 miles per year.

Answers

My advice is not to touch it with a barge pole! We bought a C4 Picasso 18 months ago from a main dealer, with low mileage. It was a 2010 plate. Thankfully we also paid extra for an extended dealer warranty. The warranty has paid out nearly £2000 in the last 18 months and since April the car has been at the garage almost every month. We would love to get rid of it, but our outstanding loan is now greater than the value. I only got the car back 10 days ago having had the suspension compressor changed (over £1000 of work) and already I have a new error message stating "Engine Fault. Repair Needed." Since February we have had new rear suspension air bags, new battery, new brakes, work on the gear box, new rear suspension compressor and now this. It is getting ridiculous. I would definitely not get another Citroen after this experience and if we could afford to lose the money I would be getting rid of this one as soon as possible. I realise that this could all be bad luck, but the main dealership has been very difficult to deal with as well and have made things harder at every turn e.g. after we were recovered with an engine fault and a flat tyre they didn't replace the tyre stating "the repair seems to be holding". Instead they let a woman with 2 young children drive away with a tyre held together with latex in the evening. Unsurprisingly I had to be recovered again a few miles up the road.

The mileage indicator keeps flashing and the left turn light says there is a fault but they work perfectly

Answers

flashing mileage indicator is a service reminder, I think.. get it reset. The lighting thing is prob due to loose or poor contacts in the bulb housing.. most likely to be rear cluster. The 'bulb out' warning system operates on lower voltages than the 12v and unless the contacts (or earth) are good, it can indicate a faulty bulb.. but the bulb will still work.

If they took out the bench seat and replaced it with singel seat, they may have botched up the wiring to the pyros.. they should have removed all pyros from bench.. passenger and middle pyros.. and strapped the passenger pyro under the new seat... otherwise the system detects malfunction. They could have clipped the wires and connected a resistor, but that can produce faults. R Evans from Caerphilly

How do you remove fuel filter top to replace paper type filter. Thanks in advance ??

Answers

with the housing firmly in situ you should be able to twist it to release it.. then take off the housing to remove it completely. the top is castellated and there is a tool Citroen use, but generally shouldn't need it unless someone has overtightened it. R Evans from Caerphilly
