The ignition has a reader on it so when the key is in the ignition it reads the key that has a code in it of a key chip in the fob part of the key there are 3 types of keys. a cheep way to find out if there is a code still on the key is take it to have a new key cut. they put it on a reader to get the cod. if it has a code then it is the reader in the lock at fault. then that is something to do with either the immobilizer or the key reader. dropping the key or magnetizing the key can damage the code stored on it, to get the code back on the key you need to go to citron outlet with all you doc's for the car and the pass key. can charge anything for this code to be put back on or in the key.

SOURCE: citroen c5 55 plate blowing 40 amp maxi fuse on the suspension

Since you have tried several fuses even stronger which you shouldn't and still blowing them, surely you have a serious suspension problem and I believe visit a qualified Citroen Garage for further inspection and repair if is required.

SOURCE: how do you change a warning light on the dash of a citeron picaso

Cluster warning lights

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Antilock brake system.TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module

Your fuel injection pump may need to be re calibrated. Check,clean or replace fuel filters if not done yet. Check pre-heating circuit runs properly. Diesel train tends to get ingested with water more frequently. Drain fuel filter of any water.

Car wont rev

under the bonnet on the back of the mechanical pump there is a unit held in by 2 bolts
remove this unit and on the end there is a tiny filter
this will need cleaning because when the lift pump brakes down tiny parts of it get sucked up through the pipes and clog the filter
it may be best to feplace the fuel filter aswell
