Citroen c8 2007 hdi 2.0l none start

Post by craig lawtonawton »

I have a citroen c8 2.0l hdi 2007, I was driving down the road when everything cut out and battery light came on, I checked my belt was still on, there was plenty of power to crank it over, to dont think power issue, I pumped primer pump a few times and it turned over, I drove down the road and this happened again about 5 times, so I thought must be fuel problems, i took filter out and started it up it ran fine for about 10 mins, I cut it out so I could put the housing bracket back on and when I tried to start it it wouldnt start, it started on easy start but I ran out, any help would be appreciated.

We really need some fault codes first of all - if you can get a code reader on it (preferably Diagbox), but if not, you should still be able to get any standard faults codes up with a generic code reader. Post them up here with your VIN so we know exactly which engine you have and that may provide some pointers.

Here you go, click on the images to magnify and zoom them up to read them:
C8 Fault A.PNG
C8 Fault B.PNG
C8 Fault C.PNG
C8 Fault D.PNG
C8 Fault E.PNG
Now the P0337 fault you had previously may be an issue - the engine speed sensor as if that is sending duff info, then it will affect the injection. So although you have cleared some of those faults down - that doesn't mean they are gone and if / when the conditions arise again, the fault will come back.

Get it on live data and check:
Engine RPM, you want to see a minimum of 300rpm.
Check cam & crank synchronisation is at YES on cranking.
Check fuel pressure on crank, you want to be seeing at least 110bar on crank.

When you've run the Global Test, select the Siemens SID803 which is the Engine ECU on this vehicle. Look for this on the list of ECUs that come up. Select it and you should get a menu where you find a 'Parameters' button or similar. From there you should be able to pick and run some live tests.
