C3 Picasso Central locking/ rear hatch

Post by Berlingoboy1 »

Hi, I have a 2009 C3 Picasso and the central locking is playing up, it will not work when the weather is cold or wet, I have tried the spare keys and no difference.
Also the rear hatch opens when I open any of the doors, I have to get out to shut it if I stop for a passenger which is obviously annoying. Any help will be appreciated thanks

Hi There,
In the Citroen car club mag of Sept 2020 a member had issues with water being trapped inside the doors.
The drain holes under the doors were blocked off by the factory and when released a positive waterfall ensued.
It mat be worth checking, even if it doesn't resolve your current issue.

You've likely an electrical short or other electrical issue. First, have you connected an aftermarket radio / head unit or any other equipment to the vehicle?

If not then a proper diagnosis is needed with Lexia to try and identify the fault, then we might be able to help.
