I have a Citroen c2. There are no lights showing on the dash board and it won't start, there's nothing at all it's completely dead. the fuses & battery are all fine. The central locking still works


Most likely some of so called "maxi fuses" might be blown. There are three fuses location - under your dashboard, under the bonnet and maxi fuses (also under the bonnet).

Trying to jump start the car once the cables are connected the alarm comes on and I unlocked the doors with the key.


On my 94 Sovereign there is a switch inside the centre console that will switch off the alarm, not sure about the 96. You could try locking all the doors. connect the jump leads and then unlock the doors (the bonnet switch for the alarm I think is the same one for the under bonnet light so you might have to tape it down whilst the bonnet is open, just to confuse the alarm )

Good luck

When did you last change the battery in your remote key fob. As strange as this may sound, if your battery is slightly down in power, it will not give a full signal to your alarm/imobiliser/central locking. Because you are begining to have problems with your remote central locking, this is a good indication that this could be your problem. You can get a battery anywhere, but they are only pennies from your local VW dealer.
