Citroen C5 2008 x7 2.0HDI - Engine Stops. Multiple Faulty Messages When Driving and Idle.

Post by muvic »

Hi ALL !

I drive Citroen C5 2008 x7 2.0HDI since March 2019.
But from September, periodically, I meet some problems when I drive the car or even when it idle. It engine cuts off, so I use car inertia to get to safe place, stop and start the engine again. If I start the engine immediately after off, engine start well but when I switch gearbox to D it is blocked in D3 position. So I should switch of the engine, wait for 1-2 minutes after that, turn on the engine and all messages disappearing and bearbox works well.
Messages what appear when the problem pops up:

Engine Oil Pressure Low
Faulty GearBox
ESP Faulty
Automatic Parking Brake Faulty


To exclude the bear box problem I test my car at Midlands Transmissions - so is NOT the GearBox. They told me that is definitely something electrical..

What I observed is when I drive, this Engine-Stop happens when outside is very wet or raining.. It give me some ideas of causes but I would like to ask your opinion in this context.. :)

Thank you in advance for all your advices!
