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

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?

Answer this question

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

i am trying to find the location of the injector relay i have followed the wiring from the injectors and they go into the EMU any ideas? bill from Middlesex

Hi Bill, I had the same problem with my Relay 2.8 hdi. Nine months later it started after spending approx £4500. Anyway, if you have got the 2.8 hdi model go under the bonnet and in the middle you will find a black cover with 2 nuts, undo the 2 nuts and you will find relays and fuses. Pull out the normal fuses and replace, do not clean and put back. What I was told by an auto electrician is the electrical crud on the fuses sends a 12 volt signal down a 5 volt wire back to the ECU so giving all wrong information. We replaced our fuses and the van startd 1st time. Hope this helps you or anyone else, regards Paul paul from Kent

Could well be the air admittance valve, I had a the same problem just put it in to the dealership an it was sorted. but I would be able to do it for myself now its just under the air filter housing . Its linked into the ecu hence no power rob mcgarvie from Cumbria

hi ! i have recently acquired a 2003 relay 2.8,jtd. everything was going sweet until an mot revealed a diesel pump leak, ever since it has become increasingly hard to start,it would turn over on the key without starting until the battery would die,but it will bump start almost on the spot with no problems, bad starting caused the starter motor to go so i had to replace it with a different type starter which was compatible , is this a fuel problem (which seems unlikely as it bumps) or could the starter be drawing too much power from the battery causing lack of power to the ecu? the engine management light comes on now but i keep turning it out as it doesn't seem to run the same

Mine done exact same! Turned out that the bracket that is ontop of the wiper motor, the one connecting the motor to the wiper mechanism, had slipped on the splines. Simply remove the nut ontop and remove the bracket. Put ur wipers on and wait till motor stops. Once it has, turn off ignition or disconnect, replace bracket and make sure the wipers are in the down position before reconnecting everything. Make sure u tighten the nut well, and use a washer!! Mine done the exact same thing and i read forums where people were replacing motors at the cost of over £100!! Madness. Hope this helps mate! :) Dave from Scottish Borders

I have issues with the side and rear doors, if i am on any hill or up a kerb the side door traps itself when closing. today it has fell off, came out of its middle rail and bent the bottom runner. Also the back door won't open if on a hill the top lock won't release. I have had a relay for 5 years before this one without any door issues, i know the chassis frame work inside the van is thinner , this is obviously twisting the van. Anyone had a similar problem?
