Citroen Relay

Hi can anyone give advice on what may be the problem? On my dash board I have a orange light that comes on n off but has started coming on more frequent and for longer periods. I think it has something to do with the lights or wiring. I have checked and changed some bulds to see if that made a difference with no joy. when I have the right hand indicator on the indicator light on the dash often goes quicker than normal but doesn't do it when going left. I have noticed that when the right indicator is on sometimes the reverse light bulds on both sides also flash faintly. Any help would greatly be appreciated. Thanks Ian

Answer this question

Mark, West Sussex

Citroen Relay

Hi - hoping someone can advise. I am about to purchase a 2008 Citroen Relay van from a private seller. The mileage display is flashing and his explanation is that he has had an aftermarket Pioneer touchscreen double din stereo fitted and the problem started when this was installed. He claims that local Citroen dealers have said that the mileage is flashing because the van is looking for the original stereo unit which is no longer there and that this is not a problem. Could this be true?. The van has 93k miles on it apparently backed up by MOT's (which I haven't seen yet, or know how many he has). My concern is that it may have been 'mileage adjusted' as it also has slam lock doors which I understand mean it could have been a courier van. Any thoughts would be appreciated

Hi, Please help this is doing my head in! When I am on the throttle or coming off the throttle there is an high pitched beep/whine. When maintaining a constant speed it seems to stop. Also when accelerating I'm getting plumes of black smoke. Not sure if this is related. Thank you in advance. Mark

We have a 2008 Relay and ours developed strange electrical problems with things working when they should not and battery going flat etc. We scratched our heads until we remembered an Iveco van we had that developed the same fault (water ingress to the fuse box). On our Relay we located the fuse box under the bonnet, took the cover off to reveal fuses and relays. We removed fuses and relays one at a time and used an air line to blast compressed air into the terminals and hey presto everything returned to normal and has worked ok since then. So the problem must have been water ingress, so worth a try, takes 10 mins and costs nothing. jeff turner from Angus

Ihave a 2008 relay, the engine management light came on and plumes of black smoke accompanied by loss of power, fitted new DPF ( Diesel Particulate Filter ) to no avail, then fitted a new EGR valve which made the problem worse, decided to put it in to the Citroen garage as the AA said it was the airflow meter. It turned out to be a hole in a turbo pipe which cost me £400. Suggest checking all the pipes first and there are a few of them Eddie from Cheshire

Answer this question

Ron, Cumbria

Citroen Relay

When I switch off the engine and close the door after about 20 seconds the left (passenger side) front indicator light comes on and stays on (not flashing) no other lights come on. Locking via the remote works as nomal i.e. the indicators flash then after a few seconds the indicator lights up again and stas on. If I open the drivers door the light goes off and it doesn't light up when the engine is running. The indicators work normally at all other times. All I can do at the moment is pull the indicator bulb when i park up otherwise the battery will run down as the light will be on all night. Any ideas?

Molly, Cheshire

Citroen Relay

Hi I've recently purchased a CITROEN RELAY 1800 TD HDI LWB 06 reg. 2179cc, been converted to a motorhome. It's got a weird problem. There's a sort of vibrating noise when the engine is cold and at tick over. If you rev the engine up the noise goes and once the engine is warm the noise disappears. The noise isn't a squealing like a loose belt it's a bit like a washing machine on the spin cycle. Anyone know what it could be? The van has got a warranty but it's a bit of a difficult thing to report to the dealer when the noise has stopped by the time we get there. Cheers
