Hello Everyone,

I'm new to this forum. Just bought a used C3 last week. I'm facing one issue with my car. Engine light (Steady amber) comes and automatically goes off after some driving. Don't know what the issue is :( This has happened twice now in 3days. In display it shows engine fault: repair needed. Anyone facing the same issue?
Thank you.

Regards
Mayur

Hi

You have an engine fault detected. It needs to go to Citroen approved garage to read the codes and diagnose the fault .


Or read the codes yourself with lexia or an OBD2 reader

There is no more engine light amber showing. But I used a OBD2 reader and found one faulty code. Which is P2563 - Turbocharger boost control position sensor circuit range/ performance.
