I have a Citroen Xantia 1.8i estate 2000 (w) one of the micro switches inside the key fob broke off I went to the local Citroen dealers and asked how much for a new circuit board for inside the fob I was told I would have to buy a complete fob costing £150.00 I then asked how easy it was to re program the fob they told me I I would have to let them program it on their PC it would take about 1/2 hour for them to do it and it would cost me another £49.00 that's £199.00 +vat just for a key and remote central locking after the smelling salts had worked I got up off the floor and said they must be joking he said no that was how much it would cost. does anyone know of a way to program a 2nd hand fob without me having to take out a 2nd mortgage to pay for it?

If it's an automatic, check if the lever is at P or N. Check if your car has immobilizer that needs you to enter codes before it will start. Gauges moving full scale usually indicates that the instruments cluster is 'missing' an additional IGN supply. When you turn your key to the ON position, all lights in the cluster will light up. This position will make the ignition switch supply 2 IGN power to most electrical systems. If one is missing, the car may not start. Check all fuses under the fascia and in the engine bay. Be on the look out for fuses that have melted 'seats'. They may give intermittent power. Xantia's fuse slots gets melted with age, so the fuse becomes loose and supply gets disconnected.
Engine ECU is located in the engine bay, on the driver side(RHD). Body electrical has no ECU (earlier models). Citroen Berlingo uses what is called 'Multifunction Control Modules'. It has 2 of them. One is located in the steering column switch assembly and the other is incorporated inside/underneath the fuse/relay frame in the engine bay. If your Xantia is late model, it may adopt the Berlingo system but I have not seen one that does.
PSA cars with analog instrument clusters have the STOP light to alert drivers of irregularities in engine temperature or coolant that may cause severe damage to the engine. Check your radiator coolant level and top up when it's low. Don't forget to bleed the air from the cooling system. If problem persist, check for loose connectors to the Coolant Temperature Sensor(mounted on the cylinder head) and the Coolant Level Sensor (mounted on the side of the coolant refill tank). For the alarm, check ALL door switches including those for the front hood and the rear trunk. They may be shorted to earth or one of the door becomes ajar. Next time the alarm triggers, check which door looked like it's slightly opened. If so, realign the door hook located in the door pillar.
The S light is also used like a 'check engine' light for auto transmission. There maybe some error in the transmission control system. You transmission has a computer that controls a lot of valves and solenoids in it. Check your transmission fluid level and it's integrity. If you have not changed the fluid for the last 50000kms then it's due for a change. Use only Peugeot recommended fluid. Other fluids will damage it. Mention your transmission type when buying. It's either AL4 or 4HP20. Best to buy it from authorized dealer. Garages that have a Lexia 3 scanner can scan for error codes for the transmission.
Check Fuse F3. It supplies 12v to the reverse switch located on the transmission. If auto transmission (4HP14) the switch will have 4 pins, 2 for reverse light, 2 for starting circuit. If manual, it has two pins. When gear is in other position, only one pin will have 12v. When gear is in R, both pins will have 12v. The 2nd pin supplies directly to the reversing light. Fog light has connectors behind the bumper. It tends to get corroded. Disconnect and clean both side of the connectors and retry. Some may get the wires snapped. Check there first. Fuse F18,F7 and F6 supplies 12v to the foglight circuit. F6 supplies to the foglight relay. Check the relay too.
I think there is air trapped in the radiator. Remove the level semsor in on the radiator and make sure you fill the water from there first, fit it back and then remove the expansion tank and hold it higher in the air and make sure youget clear running water at the air bleeders. Cheers.
If the pressure is up the pump will not cut in anyway! slacken off a fuel line to the injectors a little and drain a few cc of fuel out (it will evaporate fast) then try again, if the pump runs for a couple of seconds then look at the spark, if it doesnot the relay is above the fuses.
