hi my van brook down on the motorway. The RAC told me it was the fuel pump I have changed that and the cam shaft sensor but she won’t start any ideas

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

Citroen Relay

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

Citroen Relay

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?

Answer this question

Jim, Aberdeenshire

Citroen Relay

Hello, I have recently been having intermittent problems accelerating with my van. when I am changing gear the power suddenly drops and the van feels like it is going to stall? Like a flat spot at around 1000 rpm. I was advised to try 3000+rpm before gear changes to see if it would clear? tonight on the way home it started to loose power as if it had stalled, so I dipped the clutch and revved the engine and it seem to clear? The engine starts fine, there is no smoke, except when first starting from cold? This problem has become more frequent in the last couple of months. the mileage is just over 104000 and the van is regularly serviced and was Mot'd in April. Is it possible the EGR valve is sticking at times?
