Hi, my diesel c3-1.4 2002 car which has done 131000 roughly has no power. Was running fine, popped into shop. Came back, it started then just cut off. No power when turning key, no blowers but radio and lights came on. Recovery man checked fuses and battery to which all appeared fine. Be grateful for any suggestions on what to try or cause of the problem.

What colour was the 'water'? Could be coolant if its pink/red/brown/blue/green/yellow.


There are some hidden fuses (the MAXI fuses), you find out about them here: https://citroenc3owners.com/citroen-c3-t ... s-t36.html and https://citroenc3owners.com/citroen-c3-t ... -t525.html

Maxi fuses under the engine fuse box ;)
