Can lexia pp2000 fix C4 Coupe clunking, squeaking and shaking?

Vehicle Information:

New (used) C4 coupe 1.6 petrol 2005, car is driven about 145000km.

Citroen C4 Problem:

Have a lot of noises which are starting to be very disturbing.

C4 Detailed problem explanation:

1. When the steering wheel is turned completely to either left or right, a mad squeaking starts (the car has to be moving) but speed doesn’t matter. The sound comes from front, both sides, or might also be from engine bay.

2. A pretty loud constant clunking from the rear, which seems to vary depending on speed. The faster I go, the faster it clunks. The clunking can be felt very good also at the front passenger’s footwell.
Someone suggested wheel bearings, but I doubt that, I also heard about springs which I also doubt since the clunking is constant, no matter the road or speed.

I had a similar problem with my previous BMW E46 (though random and much louder); it turned out to be the output shafts.

3. The car kind of jumps when engine breaking and gently pressing the gas pedal, this is something that many cars do, but not this bad, it’s almost as if the car is stalling. Same thing happens when engine breaking and shifting down, it seems to happen at about rev. 2000x/min or under just before the need to down shift. It feels more like an kangaroo ride than a French ride.
I know this starts to happen to ‘older and used’ cars, but is there a way to fix it or make it better on a citroen.

Question: can Lexia-3 V48 PP2000 V25 with Diagbox V7.49 edit car settings?


I’m planning on getting Lexia-3 V48 PP2000 V25 with Diagbox V7.49, but before I do, is it possible to edit car settings with Lexia? For example auto. door locking at certain speed, maybe light functions or something?

Also if there happens to be a list of settings that can be changed with lexia, i would be very grateful!

Someone suggested:

Auto door locking is already enabled at circa 11 mph and can be turned on or off via driver settings in the car without Lexia. And another one suggested Auto door locking is enabled/disabled by pressing the internal door lock button on the dash by more than a few seconds. (probably 5 secs to be sure).

Their suggest narrowed it down for me very much! After I trial from the driver settings I couldn’t get it to work, I found the auto-lock option where it says it’s disabled. If I press OK-button on the steering wheel, it just jumps to the main screen and nothing happens.

Then I turn to Chinese engineer, and got their answer:

Chinese Lexia 3 is only used to diagnose, but it is option to reset/program, the user is supposed to do it online, try to get one account from original factory and connect to their server, then use their data to do.

The next thing is to get one account from original factory and connect to their server. Good luck for me.

Solved Citroen C3 climate and radiator fan error

Here I would like to share my experience troubleshoot climate and radiator fan issue. Hope it helps anyone.

I have 2004 C3 HDI, with smart fan 1253h3, has ABS with no esp and automatic climate. When I switch climate on or heat bar 3 dash warms and beeps 3 times and all the heat lights come on. I noticed that if engine warning light on everything is ok when engine warning light turn off on the dashboard fan not cuts in and the problem comes back. I changed engine heat sensor, thermostat, controlled all wiring (can bus wiring, fan power cables), changed relay. But nothing solved the problem. Then I went to C3 forum for help, and a member told me to use lexia 3 pp2000 to pull up any error codes before changing parts and it can help guide to the point of the problem.
I bought a lexia 3 pp2000 from EOBD2 online shop he recommended, hooked it up my C3 this morning and got a P0485 code. Below is a screenshot of Lexia 3 software (Diagbox) with the code.
Citroen C3 climate and radiator fan error20150121112641
On slow speed actuator it says faulty actuator. But sometimes fan cuts in. An interesting alternative description for P0485 is Cooling Fan Power/Ground Circuit Malfunction. It might be a fan or an ECU, I am not sure from a P code. But it is easier to try a new fan than try a new ECU. So I replaced the fan, and the clear the climate control problem is fixed.


Boxster 987 has more light in the 2 chests, can Piwis cable fix it?

Boxster 987 issue – More light in the chests:
I realized before yesterday I had more light in the 2 chests! at the same time?
the odb does not indicate to me that the front trunk is open when I start.
I’ll see to change the 2 bulbs this weekend but it seems strange to me
anyone have the ref bulbs?

Someone advised me to change the LED bulbs:
I take advantage of it if I were you to put a LED bulbs instead of the original game in order to have a better lighting; you will find in abundance in LED performance among other websites or other famous … attention to the polarity of the LED, and especially whether ODB error specified in the instructions.
Normally this is a 12V / 10W by shuttle safe …

Then I tested as follows:
No message box before open when I start, message only to trunk is this normal?
I do not have the land use plan fuses in the cover, someone would have it that pdf?
I removed the bulbs, they do not seem fried, I’m going to buy for testing.
I’ll order the LEDs

Someone recommended me to use PIWIS cable:
It can be linked to a locking problem … There aas fuse for these lights but circuiteut be cut if the lighting module detects a problem … if no improvement he will spend the PIWIS. ..

I asked, there were updates of the software?
He replied: It depends what you want … You have the Chinese to €21 cable with only 3 Durametric with which you can read and erase faults …
Then the cable Durametric Enthusiast €400 limit 3 car to do the same thing but with Durametric 6 and a real license
Then the pro Durametric €600  which is not limited by car and allows some programming (activation viress regulator, central locking rolling …)
Finally Piwis tester 2 (that is what I now have!) To several thousand eur that can do everything!

You are spoiled for choice …

For the Chinese cable

He is very good and the supplied software
