Ok, two possibles here. One is that your rear spheres have lost their gas. (Most likely, especially given age of car). Easy enough fix, and the spheres can be got from the likes of allmake for about 30 quid each. Other possibility depends on a couple of factors: if the car doesnt rise at all, after starting or changing the ride height, your main reservoir is probably at fault. If it does rise, but only at the front, then there is a fairly common issue within the levelling system. i cant remember exactly, but there is a ring that needs replacing. Give a citroen dealer a ring...they may even explain it over the phone...

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.

No. The levelling valve leak is usually an indication that there is wear in the hydraulic system elsewhere. Probably in the suspension cylinders. They supply too much hydraulic fluid on the return system when they get worn and as all connections are push fit on the return side leaks will show up at the weakest point.
The valve itself only moves 2mm max and not really a servicable unit.
How is the rest of the suspension? Do you have the electro hydraulic system with the larger pipes feeding the spheres? Some unscrupulous people neglect to replace or recharge the two centre spheres because they are difficult to access and this increases pressure on the whole system.
Replacing the valve is not a big job. But please be aware there are serious pressures involved and could result in injury. Also the set-up procedure has to be carried out on a 4 post ramp with Citroen tools.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: is there a fuse for airbag light in citroen xantia

not that i know off ,if its not coming on then you have two choices --connect airbag light to the oil light switch and hope the vehicle inspection man doesnt know this dodge,fit a heater glow plug unit under and connect light via this to bring light on and then make it go out without starting engine because they are getting wise to the oil light trick at the vehicle inspection.Or take it to the dealers ----normal cost at dealers is about 2000euros .If i have one failed at vehicle inspection then i have to have a certificate from dealers that airbags have been changed .More often than not the glow plug relay one will pass providing that i have checked the vehicle first ,because if they see it first?? then it will not pass without the certificate

Citroen Xantia AUTO 2.0 alert lights cold (sport and snow lights)


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.

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.
