Get it scanned for actual error code. Some wires connected to sensors on the exhaust pipe may have come loose.

Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPEDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

SOURCE: citroen c crosser anti pollution light

Anti pollution light, I never heard of a Check engine light being called that.
Read on please.

Hello
When the service engine soon light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.

I've a citroen c3 picasso 12 Reg.my power steering stopped working, warning light showing on dash I've been told it's a common fault and that citroen will repair free if under 80 000 miles. Any info?


repair free ?' dont think so -these are electric motors fitted to the steering coloumn all electronic controlled and if some little uneducated grease monkey from a certain quick fit firm has played with it adjusting tracking on only arm and not keeping it central then this will cause BIG problems .

Citroen c3 2006 anti-theft


I had the same problem.when I used my main key my car wouldn't start and I got the message "anti theft faulty". The key and the remote still unlocks and locks the doors and turns the lights on/off but it just wouldn't start my car. I was able to start my C3 by using the spare key. The main key is still faulty and if used brings up the same message.
