We'll really need Peugeot Planet on it to get the specific fault codes, then post them up.

The problem is a wire to rear left sensor heres what i have done.

Probed all the sensors there all good probed the loom everything good apart from one wire rear left .
Unplugged the plug from the abs mod probed each pair of wires and same readings all good apart from the rear left , so its down to a wire, a break in the loom, and guess what its under the exhaust and a heat sheild... so im almost there.

You'll need to get it to an Auto electrician with some experience - the fault code is as it says; F063 - Fault: absence of communication with the seat belt non-fastening ECU: Not characterised. So there is no further specific info on the fault. You'll have to get it more thoroughly tested.

...hope this thread is active....
What happend, did the cars got fixed???

Hello,
I am new at this with forum, but maybe I learn with time…..

I seam to have the same problem as ”Winter” and ”Mopedman50”, I’m sad to say, but in an other cartype……And I really need som expert help.

I live i Sweden, so I bought a left hand drive car, a C5 sedan 2.0 180 Bluehdi Exclusive from 2016, in late december 2021.

An extremly comfortable car, obvoisly made for long roadtrips…perfect for my in total 360 km nearly daily comuting….sometimes 2 days a week, sometimes 6 times a week, and all in between.
The car is an absolute relaxed joy to crouise long distances with, riding along on airclouds…

A couple weeks ago, I found that the switch for the airbag, located in the glovebox, was turned off. After turning it on, I got the same issue as ”Winter” and ”Mopedman50”. The message "airbag or pretensioner seat belt faulty" intermittently hammering away in the speedometer display, allways accompanied by a very loud and angry very irritating beeping nois. This goes on and on, every 15-30 seconds, so it is very anoying – as it should, I supose…. Than it stops for a while, and comes right back again, intermittently….

Turning the switch for the airbag off again, does not turn off the fault message and/or the warning nois, but they are not broadcasted as often as with the switch turned on.

I have a cheap ELM327 fault code reader, connected to my smartphone with a bunch of free apps for finding and deleting fault codes installed. This setup has worked fine with my earlier cars, Jaguar X-type 3.0 Sport, Peugeot 107 HDI, Opel Combo 1,3 CDTI and with lots of my friends other cars. The setup connects to my C5 as it should, it workes fine and do not display any fault codes.

I have also been to a Citroen garage, who connected somekind of computersystem for finding faultcodes to my car, a system they use dayly for all Citroen cars, and they could not find any fault codes at all – thats fine in a way, but it does not help me with the problem my car has. (The system looked old, dirty, shabby because of years of dayly use, and it was not uppdated due to a startup message on the screen, to expensive to update I was told) A bit strange that they found nothing, due to that ”GiveMeABreak” says that something about 92 fault codes can broduce this fault message in the display. But, ofcause, both my own, and the garage systems could be bad, not finding anything…

I can try to visit an other garage, but every visit will cost about 150 Euro, just for trying to read faultcodes that do not exists in my car….150 Euro for nothing but loss of my money, my time and yippieee, Sweden winns, we have the worlds most expensive diesel fuel, nearly 2,3 Euro/litre (nearly 80% is tax, and tax on tax...and tax on tax on tax...).

To fix this carproblem (not the fuel tax problem), I need to know what is causing it, otherwise I am running arround totaly in the dark, hitting stuff I probably should not need to touch, and spending time and money in vane….

I am not so thrilled of buying and trying to change one thing after an other without knowlidge, it can be expensive without fixing the problem. Maybe this forum has the knowlidge I so well need?

I can not leav my car to whatever garage I can find, and hope for the best. I have a hard time trusting them due to decades of bad experience with garages ripping people of by billing customers for work and spareparts they have never done, ore never changed on the the cars. I can write a book about this (and the absurd taxes in Sweden), but the thought makes me bitter and angry, and life is to short to feel bad...The carbusiness in Sweden is corrupt, everybody knows it, but noone does anyting about it.

Leaving the car to any garage, will propably result in a long process consuming expensive time, to try to locate a problem that does not produce any fault codes. It is likely that they will have to dismount lots of interior, cables and electronics to try to locate the problem (or bill me for just saying that they have done this and that...). This will propably end with a 2500 Euro invoice, without fixing the problem reguardles of if the work is actually done or not – and this is not OK.

Because I and one garege can not find any fault codes, it is possible, and likely, that any garage will have the same problems finding any fault codes.

Questions:

1. Do anyone know if ”Winter” and ”Mopedman50” got thair problems diagnosed, fixed and in which case how? What fixed the problems????

2. Are the airbags and the front chairs seatbelt pretesioner somehow connected under the chairs? Why I ask is because I can see that a plastic net holding up the seatpad from undernith the driverchair (left chair in swedish cars), is partly losened, loocking like someone have teared it down a bit trying to get inside under the chair, maybe loocking fore lose cables ore something. Maybe someone have tried to locate my cars prooblem before, maybe it has not anyting to do with this problem at all? What do You think?

2. If I and my garage can not read any fault codes, is it the best way to buy a new/used ”squib” or ”comms unit”, as you guyes disgussed here, or how can I come forward with fixing the problem?

3. If I would like to purchase a diagnose system for my C5, a system that realy get everything out from the cars electronics, and a system that realy can read and reset every faultcode, which is the best (up to 300 Euro)?
