It does sound like the BSI.

But, it could be something affecting the BSI, like..... an aftermarket stereo.... ;)

Thanks for that. There is a after market stero in it do you think taking it out might solve it.

Yes, disconnect the stereo and the problem will be solved.

For a better solution, swap the wires 4 and 7 on the ISO power plug and your problems will be fixed and you can still use the stereo.

https://citroenc3owners.com/audio-citroe ... o-t44.html this topic has a picture of the ISO power plug, so you can identify 4 and 7.
