DS3 Multiple Errors

Post by Mclegend »

My Nephew offered to jump start a friends car from his 2014 1.6 DS3, he admits he may not have had all the connections correct!!!! which may or may not have contributed to the problem below.

However, shortly after this there has been multiple warnings and issues.

1. Under inflation monitoring fault
2. Power Steering faulty
3. ESP / ASR system faulty
3. The following dash lights are on Steering, tire inflation, service and ESP
4. The power steering also doesn't work.

I have checked all the relevant fuses. is there a test I can perform on the steering rack to determine if its faulty.

Any advice greatly received.

how soon after the jump start did this happen ? hours, days, minutes?
Make sure you check all the fuses, not just the ones you think may be relevant. Especially any maxi fuses that may be hidden under the under bonnet fusebox.
Is the alternator still charging the battery?

It sounds as if he jumped the friends car, switched his off and when he switched on again a few minutes later all the faults appeared.

Checked all the fuses, under dash and bonnet and all ok.

Battery reads 12.5 Volts static and 14.45 when running so I am guessing the alternator is ok.

Any suggestions welcome.
