n00b - hi all

A forum for new members to introduce themselves to the rabble already onboard. Not compulsory!
Tell us a little about yourself, lie if you have to but keep it to just an introduction, not a car discussion.

The ‘check control’ says what fault you have when there is one. Image
I've blanked off the EGR valve weeks ago, so at start-up the display says ‘anti-pollution fault’ and it also says so when checking control.

"TFM" is not very good, I tell you - because it's telling me that it should display ALL the fault/alert messages, like a self check system when you press it. That doesn't work on me.

Ok, I've gone over the Citroen forum (all 450+ pages of it!) over the past week - I narrowed down about 100 threads that may be useful with problems I have (and may happen eventually).

One thing I noticed, the thread titles are not necessarily descriptive enough (well, I guess not many people go through the entire forum!).

Anyway, this is just a heads-up for you experts out there that there will be a few threads coming from me shortly =).
cheers,
Sam

That's because we all tend to go off-topic in many threads and the subject matter drifts about a bit. Entirely normal for this forum but no worries, the admins and many long-standing members have a good memory of what threads contain what..

Looking forward to your threads!!
