Xsara Picasso 2007 1.6hdi warm start issues HELP!!

Post by thebrasso » 07 Jul 2018, 10:25

Hi There,
I'm new to this forum, I only joined yesterday,

I'm having some starting issues. Cold, the Picasso starts no problems, but once warm it is difficult to start, usually failing to turn the starter motor.

I have had mixed comment from other people on this some say the temperature sensor, others say the crank sensor may have gone duff.
Are these easy to replace, if so, where are they located?
I have no error messages and o fault codes are displayed..

Any help or comments would be greatly appreciated, as this is driving me Mad.


Many Thanks

John Brassington

John, you say there are no fault codes - where / what are you looking to get these from? Don't expect any fault codes for these sorts of problems to be displayed on the dash or multi function screen. You'll need to get it on a Lexia / Diagbox to undertake a diagnostic.

Without a proper diagnostic it can be a waste of time if you start replacing parts that may be perfectly fine. Once we have the diagnostic codes we may be able to help further.
