Citroen C2 2008 display flashing

Post by Amincroes »

So, this car has it’s in-display light flashing nonstop. Is there a way to fix this? I have a YouTube video that shows the display flashing nonstop.

Thanks in advance!

The date and time have not been set.
My guess is that the stock radio has been removed and an aftermarket radio installed?
If not, refer to your owners manual to set the date and time via the radio buttons.

Hi, and welcome to the forum.

The flashing is almost certainly because you need to set the time/date. Usually happens after a battery disconnection.

Hi thanks for the reply. The car has an aftermarket radio installed.. that makes sense because I couldn’t find the buttons to set the date and time

Hi, thank you for the welcome.
There is an aftermarket radio installed. Is there still a way to still set the date and time?

No

The head units are not just radios, they have other functions and you will have lost other functionality like being able to configure vehicle options as well.

It may depend on the spec of the car. I had a C4 which i fitted an aftermarket radio to with the slighty higher spec central display. I could still adjust the date & time using the steering wheel controls.
