Question about 1991 Peugeot 405
Hello! I have some problem with my Citroen XM 2.oi 16v ('94), and Im wondering could you give me some professional advice. My problem consiting in that, when coolant temp. reach aproxim. 80 C degrees, cooling fan start to blow in first speed, together with appearing High coolant temperature warning light and STOP warning light on dashboard.
And when I turn off ignition, cooling fan remains to blow.
Since now, I have replace Thermostat, All thermo sensors on thermostat housing, Water pump together with complete coolant, relays that controls cooling fan, and problem with cooling fan early start ( and underheated engine) still remains.
Hi, XMs were notorious for electrical problems. From what you describe I'm assuming that the engine is not actually overheating. There is an earthing point near the drivers side suspension strut (under the bonnet) which caused many problems.
There are a lot of wires connected to this point and what I used to do was remove the original fitting and connect all the wiring directly to the body using eyelet terminals and the original mounting bolt, making sure you have a good contact with the body by cleaning any corrosion or paint around the contact area.
I did, on another occasion, have a problem with the under-bonnet fusebox causing the oil / stop / temp lights to come on without any reason and it turned out to be a short circuit due to bad assembly at manufacture.
Have you had a diagnosis by a garage with Citroen equipment? It might be worth it now after all the work you've done with no result.Should only be a 1/2 hour charge.
Hope you find a solution. The XM was a car ahead of it's time.
