The Citroen C3 SOS button can show a red light.

This red light can be permanently lit or the red light can be flashing.

1. When the red SOS indicator light flashes then goes off: there is a system fault with the SOS system.

2. When the red SOS indicator lamp is on continuously: replace the SOS System back-up battery.
