BSI problem Help!

Post by Peter.N. »

I have recently replaced my 406 Hdi estate which has given me 60,000 miles of almost faultless service and now it wont start, comes up with a key on the display, this happened after I had removed the radio to fit in the other car.

I have tried three BSI resets to no avail, everything else electrical works as it should. The key is being detected OK because if I try to start it, leave the key in and open the door it bleeps at me but stops when I remove the key.

I have given it to my son who was about insure it when this happened, someone suggested getting the AA out which might not be a bad idea as I have free home start due to my advanced years. :wink:

I think perhaps its just sulking.

Thanks Steve. It does know when the key is in there as it bleeps until you take it out but still could be I suppose.

Have you tried a spare key ? do you have Lexia/Planet & the immobiliser code ?
Have you checked all the fuses ? maybe blown one when removing the radio ?
Also check the inertia switch (if it has one) has not been tripped.
Next step after that is to try re coding the key(s).

Yep, tried the spare key. Someone did mention a fuse which would reset the BSI but don't know where it is. I tried the radio out of the old one and that works. Would the inertia switch cause the immobiliser light to come on?

AA man came this morning and couldn't help, said it was damp and suggested I left all the doors open as its not raining today :shock: This afternoon rebooted the BSI for about the 6th time - no light and it started! :shock:

Thank you all for your input.

The AA man may well be right my Relay van has been playing up like crazy and im convinced its the damp weather. Im getting random warning lights and one of them is the key symbol, however it can be running when this comes on! The other day the key symbol came on and it refused to start so it removed the key, told it i would sell it to a much less understanding person than me if it did not stop messing me about, put the key back in and it started. I give up lol

Hi Peter, I am having the exact same problem with my Xantia 1.9TD (1999 vintage) Allof a sudden keylight flashing and beep when I try & start. Engine turns just doesnt fire as immobiliser has shut off fuel.

Citroen forum points towards knackered wires in the loom. I linked mine to a Lexia and it showed "permanent fault - no response from engine ECU" tested the ECU connect plug points and its lost an earth and a 12V supply so that is likely my problem. Am yet to try a by pass wire to see if that sorts it. All my fuses were fine. Will let you know how I Get on.

Don't know about the XUD engine Alan, all the ones I had used a mechanical pump. The immobilisers, if they had one, were a bit simpler on those.

If its the older mechanical type and you're getting that kind of fault carefully examine all those large round multiplugs in the engine bay (open them if you can, they should just unscrew) for corrosion as with a PSA 'quirk' most of them appear to just be male pins on both halves of the connector ( ! )

405's and 106's used to 'suffer' with this sometimes, it was more prevalent (on the 106's at least, as 405's were all keypads) with the keypad setup compared to transponder but the same principle applies I guess.

I'm assuming you're not going down the 'removal' route...
