I've a citroen c3 picasso 12 power steering stopped working, warning light showing on dash I've been told it's a common fault and that citroen will repair free if under 80 000 miles. Any info?

repair free ?' dont think so -these are electric motors fitted to the steering coloumn all electronic controlled and if some little uneducated grease monkey from a certain quick fit firm has played with it adjusting tracking on only arm and not keeping it central then this will cause BIG problems .

Radiator fan does not come on if car is idling too long it overheats could be fuse but dont have a manual to find which fuse controls it citroen xsara picasso x reg

Pull out each fuse individually and check them. The ones under the hood/bonnet and within the cabin. There is also a fan relay which is cheap to replace and try.

Probably a short brush in the alternator, if you can find a specialist auto electrician it is possable to replace the brush/control pack but most places want to stripe you for an exchange unit.

Citroen picasso keeps cutting out twice a week on acceleration

Sounds like an air leak or the tank pump cannot keep up with demand (the supply pump in tanks do give trouble (a pressure gauge between tank and engine would tell, make sure it is visable when driving, I used to tape it to the bonnet with masking tape.
