Hi 12 months ago I purchased campervan conversion with 12 months mot . Very pleased with it except except when i collected it the SRS light was lit. No luck with dealer regarding repair. Would this model of had seat belt wiring ? its been fitted with 2 swivel seats. cannot see any seat wiring . except an orange coloured plug with 2 pale blue wires leading into it, possibly from a double seat application as its near the center. where else should I look. Any help very much appreciated . rgds. ian

The rear door on my Relay will open from the inside but not the outside. Peering inside both cables are intact on the internal and external handles and move the lock internally but I can't see far enough to see if anything else has come loose. Any ideas? It's driving me mad. PS if it needs a new catch is this an easy job? It looks fiddly to me!

hi the battery light stays on the battery is not 2years old would it be the alternator??
Quite possible, check that you have over 13volts at the battery when the engine is running and less when it is not. Thomas Rout from Caerphilly

I have a 2.8 Relay on a 05 plate with an eml fault occuring at about 3000 revs the eml light will come on, sometimes the engine will cut out other times it runs in limp mode. If it cuts out it will not start straight away. I have checked the waste gate and that works correctly. The fault doesn't happen so much with the turbo hose disconnected. I have tried to find a suitable Obd. reader but to no avail if some one could recommend one I would be gratefull. I can not make it fault whilst not moving even if I load the engine on the handbrake. The engine has a map sensor on the manifold and a cam sensor on the top pully but I cannot see if there is a crank sensor fitted anywhere. I believe it is the Iveco engine. Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks Tom.

The internal blowers only work on setting 4. What could be cause and how/ where to look to fix?
It sounds like the resistor pack has gone it is normally fitted into the fans airflow to help it keep cool. It looks like a hedgehog. Thomas Rout from Caerphilly
Thomas is correct about the part that's probably gone, but the speed control resistor as not necessarily a hedgehog shape.. there are many variants. On my 2007 Relay it was not a hedgehog like thing but a small green blade shape.. but in checking, I found that the cables at the plug that connects to the resistor had overheated.. cut and re-wired and it was fine.. cost.. a little bit of time. Either way, you can just get to the part that is under the passenger side of dash without dismantling anything.. again depending on which variant you have R Evans from Caerphilly

Hello , 2007 citroen relay SWB standard van Everytime i turn to the right or when a car passes the van Makes a beeping sound . similar to handbrake/ seatbelt but it just beeps randomly and when i have a small load say 250kg it gets alot worse. All that is wrong with it currently is the renowned crappy central locking . Any ideas its driving me mad !
Open side door, remove rubber plastic 3 metal pin mechanism and bend the metal surrounding out slightly and then pop the unit back into place. Should be tight and you should hear the unit clip back into place, this should hopefully solve the issue Tony L from Hampshire

My Relay L2H2 (puma engine) has recently started being hard to release from 6th gear (or even 5th depending on traffic) after a period of steady driving , and after forcing out of 6th (or 5th) to change down the clutch bites with little movement from the bottom of the pedal but every other clutch action afterwards in quick succession is normal ( about half way out on the pedal ) i.e. junctions & lights etc When this happens the clutch feels lighter than normal but always returns to normal feeling after that 1 change of gear , but this happens regular after each period of steady driving i.e. anything after 5 mins as if the hydraulic clutch looses pressure Any thoughts or help appreciated !!!!

Hi all, Yesterday my Relay suddenly broke down. Although the engine remained ticking-over, there was a loss of power and the engine wouldn't rev above 1100-1200rpm (also the exhaust smoke was excessive and didn't smell like it was burning right). After calling the RAC, they diagnosed that the EGR valve needed replacing. I have now replaced the EGR valve, but the problem remains the same. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
My Cit Relay (2006, 2.2 Puma) used to come up with EGR valve fault and MAF sensor fault.. changed them both and still got error messages. fault lay with the MAP sensor.. also known as turbo boost sensor.. was gunked up big time.. cleaned it and all went well. R Evans from Caerphilly

Hi There I'm getting rain water in quite badly through the top of the side door. Tried putting gaffa tape down on the top surface of the side door to lessen the gap between door and seal but to no avail. Any ideas? Thanks Andreas
peel off the door seal and check the tightness of the bit that actually fixes to the metalwork.. I squeezed along that part of my seals and got a tighter fit. On some vehicles they also put a bead of sealant in there. You also should check the rubber itself for perishing and wear. R Evans from Caerphilly
Thanks R Evans! Do you mean that you took off the seal, then put it back on and squeezed to get the better fit? andreas from Bristol

On log book it says 20/04/2003 relay 1000 Td HDI swb may be on a crossover, I'm looking for the map sensor to change it, typical 1997 cc hdi engine starting issues, relays, glow plugs, pressure tests , bleed of tests, mad sensor, fuel filter crank sensor all been checked just can not seem to locate map sensor any help or pictures appreciated
Dean, on your version.. the Relay II it appears that it's controlled by an electrovalve that will have two vacuum hoses coming from it. Hoses may be perished - part number 5953-06.. or the electrovalve may have broken down - part number 1629-LQ.. electrovalve available on popular auction site at abt £40 search 'citroen part 1629LQ' R Evans from Caerphilly
With thanks to R Evans Caerphilly for response, on looking closly at the crank sensor a knew one had been fitted but the connection block as been cut down to fit the terminal gland which tells me somone may have fitted wrong sensor, as anyone got correct part number please reg lv03 xrt Citroen 1000 TD HDI SWB with thanks Dean Harris. Tel 07402403942 dean harris from Powys
Dean, so you're looking for the crankshaft position sensor? or the connector block that fits to it? You have three sensors on yours.. a CAMSHAFT position sensor which is part number 1920ES; a crankshaft top dead centre sensor which is part number 5912-92 and an engine speed sensor which is part number 1920-7N. Only the cranskshaft TDC sensor has a flylead built in; the other two - the connectors fit directly to them. R Evans from Caerphilly
Further help needed on doing an injector leak off test have found faulty injector on the above mentioned van, 2 questions what injector part number goes in this vehicle as can not locate number on its cap, secondly do the injectors need re- coding on these vans or are they straight swaps without having a media re map for ecu ? With thanks Dean Harris, unfortunately the guy I brought it off was not honest with what he said had clearly not been done so have had to go back to basics, it however is not smoking and does not smell of fumes and at my whits with getting it started have been housing easy start or jumping of a hill, I do not however want to wear oil seals or piston rings with the nasty easy start dean harris from Powys

Hi I've only one radiator fan working, do you know where relays are or fuses, and any help with fixing fault please Thanks
David.. assuming your van is 2006- on then it seems fairly commonplace for the one fan to burn out the bearings.. and you may need a replacement. If so, try the popular auction site.. I did. test the fan by carefully turning the blades by hand and checking they move freely.. I had one that was badly grinding and difficult to turn... it had to be changed.. but it had knocked out the fuse.. here's for your fuse location... open the bonnet and look towards where the air filter box is on the passenger side. there is a square box for fuses and relays to the side of it. Get the lid off and you'll see an array of MAXI fuses.. the heater fuses for some reason are different on some variants of the 2006- Relay but mine were across the top row (as you look in) and fuses No 3&4... they'll be 40A or 50A fuses and don't be tempted to uprate them.. they are there for a reason.

I have just bought this van, all ok but N/S indicator reports bulb failure. ALL BULBS WORK. I have changed all bulb to Quality bulbs and now works correctly for 9 secs before failure warning comes up. O/S works fine. Idea please
Relays are known for poor wiring in the rear clusters.. particularly the connectors from main wiring loom to the light unit itself.. check they are clean and making good contact.. use a scraper of sandpaper to tidy them up.. what I did on mine in the end was solder a length of wire directly from the return in the circuitboard in the light cluster and attach the other end to earth point in bodywork.. worked fine# R Evans from Caerphilly

HI, I don't even know if I've selected the correct model type...all my V5 says is RELAY 35 HDI 120 LWB..... I am having problems as of Sunday when the dashboard is warning me that one of the rear doors is open -even though it isn't- and the central looking won't lock the passenger door, side door or rear doors, just the drivers door only. I don't have the remote key, just two spares that were made, so I manually put the key in the door and it's been fine since I got it but developed this fault. A local mechanic friend said he couldn't see anything wrong with wiring or anything like that. The sensors seem fine as far as I can tell. He is suggesting we get a new central locking system but I can't even find anything suitable for a 2008 online. Also, I bought a box of the blade two pin fuses and as I don't have the manual (as it didn't come with the van last year) I thought i'd change ALL of the fuses, but even that seems to be a grey area as the new fuses aren't just in red or brown etc they seem to come in a couple of shades each and there is nothing to advise what amp they are....good grief?!?!?!?
Alan.. the sliding door on a Relay of that age is a common failure point. the central rollers wear and the door drops preventing the contacts in the door meeting the receivers in the pillar. Check rollers for wear first and if OK, adjust the middle rollers. I can get you the Citroen part numbers for the components and the wiring layouts if you need them,, but the door roller is a cheap fix. You won't get half the central locking stuff online - dealer only.. ching ching. Fuse ratings are all standardised according to their rating and easy to find out.. basically, the ones you'll need to bother with are: orange is 5A, red is 10A, blue is 15A, yellow is 20A, clear or white is 25A and green is 30A. On your van, you probably won't encounter any other.. and the main fuseboard near the steering wheel will be predominantly red and blue midi size fuses with an occasional yellow. There's another fusebox in the engine bay to the right and under a cover. They hold the larger Maxi fuses and will be 40, 50 or 60A. Never replace a broken fuse with one of higher rating until you fix why it blew... and on that.. why change them if they're NOT gone?? R Evans from Caerphilly
Hello R Evans from Caerphilly. Thanks very much for your reply. We'll have a go at the middle rollers, that's a good tip. If you have time we'd appreciate the part numbers, that'd be great. We have a neighbour/mechanic friend but he has a lot on his plate...family matters and work so he hasn't really got time to look into our probs at the moment. It's had us pulling our hair out. thanks again, Carol Carol Moncrieff from Tyne and Wear

hi i just want to ask if the relay 2006 2.2hd lwb does have indicator flash when i am using the central remote lock? if not can i do to flash the indicators when i am using the remote central lock? thanks
Gaby, the later 2006 models (Relay III) flash when locking or unlocking.. not sure about Relay II. If yours don't flash then it could be (pardon the pun) a faulty relay .. unlikely to be the fuse or your indicators wouldn't work at all. R Evans from Caerphilly

Where does the pollen filter live please
Brian, if you have the 2006 -on version then it is hidden behind the central glovebox... open it and there are three torx screws to undo.. remove and pull the bar they were fitted away from the opening part. The opening part will then open fully (or remove it) and exposes a black panel that's held in place with two very small screws and then clips. undo and remove panel which is abt a foot by four inches to reveal the opening where pollen filter is. you'll need to squash the filter to get it out and same to insert new one.
