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.

Citroen C8 depollution system faulty


These motors and some other models with the same system always give problems .Havent done one myself as yet but other mechanics have that i talk too and if this is a diesel which has this system then you remove the particle filter on the exhaust system and make a rear box to fit type job and the sensor you disconnect and solder a resistor of around the 10.000 ohm mark across the sesnor wires to make the computer think all is well .Depends on the year though as to weither this will work satisfactory as a 53 plate sounds misteriously like some sort of secret code to me .Just noticed it says petrol 16v Hmm have to think again here as no idea with this one only ever see a diesel variant but if the cap fits so to speak have a look to see if has got a filtering out exhaust system if not then sell it quick and buy a ford or a VW

Spelling was fine, along with grammar and punctuation-you should see some of the mangled illegible questions we have to decipher, or try to!

But thanks for the follow-up on your problem and the solution. Who would have thought was just the battery? Responses like yours are great encouragement to keep going.
