Got a weird starting problem with my Citroen berlingo van

Sound like it's starter motor at fault. With you saying it's after a long run there will be a lot of heat in the engine/gearbox this could be causing the starter to stick, like you say after half hour or more it's OK and short journeys you have no problem.

Mazda car battery pilot ight in front panel was found "On" while driving from home. After completing the journey and returning home, battery was found dead, ie could not start the engine. Why and...

The light you describe is not a pilot light, this is an indicator that the battery is not being charged (It comes on when you first turn on the ignition, before you start the engine because at that stage, without the engine running, the battery is not being charged. Its being on when the engine running is a warning that you have a fault).

Hence, the reason the battery was flat after the journey is because you used the power in the battery to run the engine, illuminate lights and indicators etc.

Causes for the syetem not to charge the battery are usually 1 of 3 things.

The fan belt that drives the altenator has come off. This belt usually drives a fan or power steering or both, so if broken, you would probably have other problems. - Check that the belt is on and not slipping

There may be a fault in the wiring, so your altenator is not charging. Check the plug on the back of the altenator and check around the general vicinity for damaged or faulty wiring

Most likely cause is that the altenator has failed. It may be repairable or require replacement depending on the fault.

Please add a comment to this thread if you need further guidance.
