Morning!

We have a 2003 C3 1.4 HDi. Unfortunately, the handbook is missing. Does anyone have a list of dashboard warning symbols. We keep geting one that looks like a chair and it won't clear. Any ideas?

Many thanks.

Hi Ian,

Is this the one you are referring to? An amber dash warning, depicting a seat, a rear facing child seat, a child and an airbag.
Its the passenger air bag is deactivated warning.

The passenger air bag is deactivated (and re-enabled) by using switch in the drivers door shut.

If this is not the lamp you are describing, a colour would be helpful and a photo even more so.

There isn't currently a list of warning lights available on the site, but you can pick up owners manuals from ebay by following this link Citroen C3 Owners Handbook here

Edit:
The List of C3 dashboard warning lights is here.
