Citroen Dispatch

Hello, im about to purchase a 2006 dispatch. The seller describes problem as "The Oil light does come on and stop light flashes. AA has been out to the van and said it is a dodgy connection or a relay problem as no oil is being used" Any ideas? Is it common? Should I be worried. I can do basic mechanics and am very set on this van. Cheers in advance.

Answers

If this is a simple fix then let the seller fix it before you buy it. If he is not willing to fix it then buy it but be prepared to pay whatever it takes to repair it and argue the price down accordingly at least £500 if not more. Hugh from City of Glasgow

Citroen Dispatch

The open door symbol for drivers side door remains constantly on whilst driving and to lock the door I have to push it closed whilst locking it with the key fob. When it locks the door is sometimes still openable whilst all the other doors remain locked. Could this be the door actuator or perhaps a different Issue? Any ideas would be welcomed.

please help im pulling my hair out with my dispatch. Its a 55 plate 1.9 flat diesel has been the best van ever for the last 12 months. However recently i took on the challenge of replacing the glow plugs. All went well and it was now starting first flip of the key every morning for 2 weeks. all of a sudden whilst out in the i filled it with diesel got back in and when i turned the key it took 9-10 cranks to start which i thought was most odd as it was at operating temp. Got it home and it wouldn't start at all. went back out to it the next morning and nothing on the key but cranking over and smoke out the exhaust. it will go straight away off a bump start and runs like normal and start off the key again once warm ???? Diesel doctors please help me lol
