Question about 1987 Peugeot Liberte

3 Answers

My citroen xsara picasso keeps cutting out, most of time sitting in traffic or at lights & just completely dies on me. then takes around 10 mins to restart, have had a new petrol pump about 9 months ago & problem seemed to be resolved until yesterday. Has also done this whilst doing around 30mph & whilst turning around a corner - very dangerous as steering locks. Have taken to citroen garage & they looked at me like i was completely mad & had just stalled it or something, they were no use & charged a fortune for nothing. has anyone else had this problem & resolved it ? please help.

    Which relay is it please , I asked main dealer for one the wanted colour amps ect. They didn't seem to have a clue ?

  • lloyd cole Mar 27, 2012

    The main fuel injection relay, powers the injectors n sensors etc, it lives next to the ecu, if it's on a metal tray it's bolted underneath, if ecu in plastic box it lives down the side of ecu, torx screw holds him in, also have u tried the idle air control valve, that only gives you the problem if it stalls when you changing down the gears

  • lloyd cole Mar 27, 2012

    Ok yeah I can see what u put now, yeah as mentioned that relay, forget the I a c as never gives trouble starting, when the car cuts out next n wont start, I need you to turn key on n listen carefully for the wine, it's the fuel pump, listen for it in the morning so you know what it sounds like, let me know if you can hear this when it won't start next. Also one more thing, under your bonnet there is a large button on inner wing, b near suspension strut, its black or red, depends on year, bang it so it clicks then press the button incase it's got a dirty contact inside

My Citroen Xsara Picasso has major issues. Was driving fine but then heard what sounds like electrical sparks from right side of steering column. Any ideas?

If the vehicle has tilt steering, it could be a pinched harness at the pivot point in the column. Otherwise check for big fuses located in plastic box close to battery( inner fender well. Should be a 60 amp or 40 amp. Check every fuse in the box while your there.
