Hi graham,

My money would be on the Com 2000 unit, but yes, the BSI can often give problem.

If it turns out the BSI is OK, for a com2000 could try looking for a replacement COM2000 on ebay (click here)

Some inside information on the Citroen C3 BSI tear down topic and the COM2000 tear down is here

Good Luck!
