Dads citroen c5 estate hasnt long had its 60k service,he always puts it into the citroen garage in salisbury and spends a fortune on the darn thing.
Just recently (both before & after the service) the car keeps displaying anti pollution fault light and the engine cuts and you lose steering/braking and the car wont start for approx an hour and half,this has caused near misses when its happened whilst motorway driving.
Yesterday it happened for the 8th time and it cut out half way up a hill causing yet another dangerous situation,the car has been into the citroen garage and they said"the car showed no faults" on their diagnostic machine,it also had a 60k service.
The AA guy towed dad to a safe place and then used his diagnostic tester and diagnosed a fault "coolant tempature sensor" causing this anti pollution fault,wrote dad a letter and told him to take it back to the citroen garage.
He did this today and lost his rag whilst in there as they are going on about changing the fuel pump and changing this that and the other,if you google anti pollution filter there are 100's of ppl with the same problem who have spent big money on having fuel pumps and various other parts of the car changed and the anti pollution fault still reappears.
I've spoken to citroen uk theyre hopeless this fault is so dangerous yet citroen seem to want to "eliminate" it at dads expense by replacing this that and the other to "see" if that cures it!
Dad got so peeved that other customers were watching/listening and the citroen garage drove him home whilst his car stayed there.
Even though he has told them not to change the fuel pump i have a sneaky feeling that they will and then try and bill him for it,what happens if they do just that?
I'm begining to wonder if citroen garage did put it on the diagnostic machine before at all as it seems strange that they couldnt find the fault but the aa guy did right away
