Hello to all Citroen owners,

I have a Citroen C3 (2007) Diesel 1.4 HDI car. Occasionally, I face an electrical problem in this car. The electrical problems include automatic starting of rear window viper, flashing of the speedometer backlight, etc. I have shown this problem to a local mechanic, he mentioned the problem is originating from the left switch in the steering column. I also observed that whenever I slightly touch it the problem appears again. I found that on a local website that steering column for this model cost more than 500 USD. Is replacing this complete column is only an option or can I solve this problem through other means as well?

Looking forward towards a helpful reply. Thank you.

Hi.

You don't need a steering column.

It sounds more like you need a COM2000 unit (read this topic). That topic has links to the part you need on eBay. Just match up your existing part number with an eBay one for comparability. No programming usually required.
