hi i have a citroen c3 2003 petrol which runs fine all summer
but as soon as the damp and rain of winter comes the engine management light comes
on and sometimes goes into limp mode while driving. water is getting in on the electric some ware
and throwing a code in the ecu the last time i had it read it was showing the fault as the throttle
peddle sensor changed the peddle all so changed the connector block on the harness that couples
to it took the washer jets out and put sealant round them was told it was water dripping through
them have all so been told it is the temp sender haven't looked at this yet this must be a common
fault on c3s so come on c3 owners tell me were the water is getting in
