  • DS3 faults

    (Wife's videoing skills suck)
    Any ideas?

    STOP Braking system faulty
    ESP/ASR System faulty
    Power steering faulty

    Wife said a few lights are flashing up and also said the steering feel a strange. Not sure about complete lack of power steering but said it felt heavier.

    I've got the ESP/ASR lights on as well as the Engine light with the message Engine repair needed. Looks like my issue is a faulty diesel injector cost to replace is around 750 mark at my dealership /cry. My DS3 is a DSport 110HDI. Whether you have the same issue or not I don't know.

    If you leave it about a day the faults might reset if the problem is intermittent like mine but still wise to get it checked out, last thing you want for it to go into limp mode while on a motorway.

    A dealership will charge around 50 to carry out a diagnostic (reading the fault codes stored in the cars computer ECU).

          Yesterday I got my car back from the garage with the same errors. Did your speedometer also stop working?

          First they thought it was the ABS sensor, but replacing that thing didn't resolve the issue. After a long search they found out my ABS pump was the cause of all my problems. Resulting in burning my ECU and ABS-sensor. To replace the ABS pump costs around 1100 euros (I think in euros sorry) at a Citroen Dealer. Found a refurbished ABS pump for 350 and ECU for 150. Whole job costed me around 600 euros at a small friendly mechanic nearby. (Beware: Those lack a lot of knowledge about electronics. The search was a lot longer than it should have been.)

          Now my car runs perfectly again.

          I have an 2010 1.6 THP155 Petrol btw.

            Yes the Speedo stops working every now and then. Just the revs are working. It a booked into the garage on Friday. I have a feeling it's the BSI thats faulty but who knows. Electrics can be a Pain to diagnose.
