SOURCE: wiring diagram citroen xsara 2000

I see several different problems here.

First, installing aftermarket accessories like remote starts and alarm systems is asking for electrical problems with your vehicle. Those things are known to cause all kinds of problems including stalling, incorrect air/fuel ratio, and no-starts. Not to mention that the vehicle wiring harnesses usually get BUTCHERED in the process of installing them. They also make diagnosis of future problems (like stalling, no-starts, or computer fault codes) nearly impossible because the repair technician has no way of knowing if the aftermarket accessories are at fault or if it is being caused by a malfunction in the factory equipment.

Then, if you do not know where to start, it makes me question whether you should be messing with the electrical (and most likely, computer) circuits in your vehicle to begin with.

In addition to that, there is no way that anyone can help you to perform that task without having the instructions from the manufacturer of the system you are trying to install. Different systems tie in to different circuits in the vehicle. There is no way of knowing which vehicle circuits you are needing diagrams for. Did the system not come with instructions?

I have 2 recommendations for you:

1. Don't do it. If your vehicle is not equipped by the manufacturer with the options that you want, you are better off to save your money to buy a car that is.

2. If you choose to ignore recommendation number 1, I recommend that you seek the assistance of a qualified automotive repair technician in your area.

Citoen xsara keeps cutting out


Have the fuel filter changed most likely cure.
If not it could be numerous problems from fuel pumps to injectors, coil packs,spark plugs air filters etc
Try the fuel filter first if it isn't cured get a diagnostic check done by a garage.
Note petrol and diesel can have different causes also the fuel filter on a diesel is not a diy job.
