The following error codes have been earlier found in Pluriel 2003 1.6i

PO560, u1113, p1755, p2062, p206f, p1717

clutch actuator are now replacedwith a new one, and cleared some of the codes..
Snow flash gone..

The car still not respond to the ignition key turned over to start. The car can be forced to start with artificial power for starter and runs smoothly. Has got a new battery.

Have all error codes deleted and have changed the gear actuator with a used one, and reset for mounting. Tested of the gearbox and only go up and down horizonly with Lexia)
Then monted on gearbox. Manuelly sat in neutral as in the guide lowest horizontel and middle vertical, not in gear.
Same error, cant start.

Display in car still shows a - insted of a big N
With Lexia I can get the actuator to chance horizontly up and down. But not vertical (into any gear)

A bit puzzlet about reset of the "new" used actuator in Lexia. Anyone got a how to guide in Lexia?

Hi.

You listed codes, and you have lexia, but you didn't add screen shots of what the codes mean. (It is easier to read if you alt+prt SC and then attach, rather than use a phone camera).

You have a U code there :o
What did lexia say about that?

You know that deleting stored codes doesn't actually repair the faulty part. So you could still have a fault.

Did you use lexia to diagnose each of the faults using the in built diagnostic flowchart? That can help identify where the fault is likely to be.


Yes, changing parts on a whim can be very expensive and have no ultimate repair.

Diagnosis is the key, and lexia is the tool :)

I don't know. I couldt se it on a list of error codes from Citroen, and I can't read French (google translate are not helpfull)

Yes, but I followed an adwise to delete very old errors from other repaired parts. I wrote them down as you can see above, before deleting.. :oops:

I have no Idea what a Lexia diagnostic flowchart is.. Are the a online guide anywhere to Lexia? Completely new to Lexia, and new to Citroen Pluriel. Havent drived it yet, and previusly owner proberly :lol:

I am confused. I thought you had lexia because you mentioned using it.

Lexia is not in French. I don't understand what you are saying .
u1113
A U code is present, to get the code you must have seen the screen with its description? If you don't have lexia , how did you get the codes?

I have no Idea what a Lexia diagnostic flowchart is
Lexia flowchart icon
lexia flow chart icon

You seem to have only followed half the advice about reading codes.

Read the codes, delete any that will clear and read them again. So the last set of codes will be fresh codes. This is the list you should post.

Fresh as in 'relevant'.

The old codes are kept to build up a pattern (if there is one).


I don't think there are any online guides to lexia but there are only a few buttons to press and you have pressed everyone after clicking them and you will then know what screens it gives you.


But this is a youtube of navigating screens through lexia, if that helps?
