The sensitivity can be altered (or so I have been lead to believe) but only by hooking up to Proxia/Lexia by a dealer

There is a factory default setting and maybe yours needs re-setting

My last car (a Nissan Micra) had rain sensitive wipers, BUT the sensitivity could be changed. They were a million miles better than the C4 system.

Looks like a good idea ruined.
You're right there - a bit of fine tuning on the sensitivity would be handy, and make them so much better.

They are seem to have a mind of their own, they either work like they are on intermittant or then go to mentle monsoon mode.

Like the rest of the car then really The parking sensors go crazy for no reason when reversing and the land departure system is very hit and miss, I dont rely on any of it as it cant be trusted! Cruise control switched itself off the other too and im getting a quite low frequency beep every now and then!

The parking sensors go a bit funny if their is dirt on them. Give them a quick wipe and they are fine.

Cruise control could be a switch problem or in need of a software update. Low freqnecy beep should tell you on the central screen what it needs. Could be anything from tyre pressure. To low temp warning. To fuel you need to look at the screen.

The sensors are spotless I read about them being funny when dirty but they are clean. The beep doesnt display anything on the screen and when I press the check button nothing comes up. Its a very quiet beep just hear it as it dips the stereo sound for 1 second. Its too quiet to be a warning beep or it is broken.

How do the tyre pressure sensors work? Just let the tyre down to test them? Im sure one tyre looks a bit down but no warnings.

They monitor for pressure drop that's all. Just incase of puncture or something. Mine pops up occasionally now to tell me that the sensors aren't being monitored. Resulting in it then displaying the service light for a couple seconds.

Just a quick update. Its been 2 weeks since I took my car back to Citroen and they still have not called me. I called them today to find out whats going on. They didnt know anything about it and didnt have me or the car on the computer system. She said she would call be back, this was at 11am. 6pm comes and still no call.

This is not the first time either. Everytime I go down there they cant find me! So Im having to actually go down there in person and ask what is going on! I cant believe the trouble im having with the car and the dealer, never again thats for sure.
