Ok the engine fault light came on in the car saying Engine Fault repair needed. This happened about 3 weeks ago and the car is running fine.

Went to garage today and was plunged into the diagnostic machine, came back with approx 100 fault codes, garage tried to erase the faults but they could not erase them.

One thing that i did notice during the last few weeks was it was sometime struggling to start and the garage tested the battery and recommended a new one. Left the garage and got a new battery and fitted.

My question is could the failing battery have caused all these error codes? it is booked into the garage next saturday for them to investigate what could be causing this.

Has anyone come across anything like this before? hundreds of codes and unable to clear. Any help appreciated.

Will upload the fault codes soon

Ok ive uploaded the shared images of the fault report below.

In general it could have been a failing batter or a problem with the fuse box.

I would get the car checked by a Citroen garage as some of those seem irrelevant. It seems to be reporting faults for items that may not even be fitted!

Going to let the garage at the weekend have another go as they did not have time properly to investigate, after that will go to independent Citroen specialist before having to get a second mortgage to visiting Citroen

*****UPDATE******

Ok car went back to garage today with a new battery on and further investigation of the faults.

The garage has cleared all the faults now with only one outstanding which they cannot clear, the code is listed as B1003 "Configuration Fault"

The car is still showing the following message on startup "Engine Fault repair needed" and service light stops illuminated.

Any help with the B1003 code would be helpful as cannot find any information regarding the cause of the fault.

Try a BSI reset:
Put the drivers window down, lift the bonnet and ensure all equipment is switched off.

Ensure all doors are closed and remove key from the ignition.

Wait for 3 minutes, disconnect the vehicle battery and wait 15 seconds.

Reconnect the vehicle battery, wait a further 10 seconds (do not open doors.).

Switch on the side lights through the drivers window.

Switch on the ignition and check systems functionality.

Hold lock button on key down for 10 seconds.

Remove key open & close door test central locking system.

Start the engine and complete the systems check.
