Hi all,

Just got my c3 and love it, got up yesterday and it just clicked when i turned the key. had alternator and battery tested and seems ok. assuming its the starter motor. bumped it and it started and been ok for the day.when i start it and its running the starter seem to run on. mechanic says thats normal?

This morning it started but when i had to turn it off it clicked again,third time it started again fine.

Read somewhere about issues with the c3

any advice?

thanx

Jason

Hi jason35x,

Is it a petrol or diesel?

How many miles and what year?

I have made a suggestion to your question Citroen C3 Keyfob reprogramming which I think may be related!
