The check engine light can come on for several different reasons. The reason can prove to be major or a very minor one (such as a loose gas cap) The simplest and cheapest way to find out what the trouble could be is to stop by your local auto parts store such as Advance Auto Parts, or Auto Zone (make sure that the check engine light is on whenever you drop by) They will hook up a code reader to your car, and point you in the right direction. They can either pinpoint the problem, or sometimes inform you of a handful of problems that it could "possibly" be. Most of the time it will prove to be a simple little thing. I would suggest this before I spent any money taking it to a dealer service deptartment who can charge an enormous amount of money just to look at your vehicle and "hopefully" diagnose the correct problem.

Not sure here but its a 2002 so iam assuming its a common rail diesel engine and without my head under the bonnet its difficult to say what the problem is ,i think though that you will need the dealer software to know what is happening as i suspect a fault with the ECU but as stated need head under the bonnet to be sure

"Check Oil" warning light comes on at randum

Probably nothing whatsoever to do with you checking the dipstick. On the golf when the warning light flashes, you reset it by opening the bonnet. That is why you think that when you check the dipstick it resets, when in fact it was opening the bonnet. Check your bonnet switch

Hello! I have some problem with my Citroen XM

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.

Engine seized no oil did not get check oil or check engine light

The oil pressure warning light only comes on when oil pressure drops below 4psi at this moment there is no oil in the engine most often it does not get to this point because oil, water etc is checked every week. It could be your engine was using oil which would point to an engine fault.

1992 VW Polo 1.3L Coupe: warning light mystery

Bought a very reputable diy service manual for the vehicle, and that plus a bit of thought and nous gave me the cure: no intrinsic problem other than loose relay connections. Went round with the wiring diagrams as guide checking all electrical connections in tight and relays fuses etc all good. Switched on and no problem any more.

By the way, vehicle is 1992 VW Polo - not Fox (which in UK is a variant of the Polo)
