Citroen C5 motor warning light

Post by Markus1121 »

Hey,

My 2015 year Citroen doesnt like these cold weathers in Finland.

Last start yellow engine warning light appeared and when the ignition was turned off, the radiator fan was going crazy.

I assume its some sensor fault but what?

Is there anything I can do in home?

Thanks for help.

Really needs a diagnostic run on it to get some fault codes first of all before replacing parts.

If you can take a photo of the warning light and post it then someone may recognise it.

Hey,

Its just this the "normal" one.

I was thinking could it be heat sensor, I assume when I shut down the power the fan is on for like 5 minutes, car maybe thinks the motor is too hot because it can't read data?

Also is there any guide where that sensor is located so I could check it?

Thanks guys.

That won't help I'm afraid, it's a general warning to the driver, but if you have Diagbox, then run a global diagnostic on the vehicle it should return some faults, that will give us an idea of what the problem is, once you've posted the fault codes up here.

And for the record those were when the car ignition on. After I started the car and got another read, it only showed the P061F error, but two times
