How to deal with Citroen C3 climate and radiator fan error?

How to deal with Citroen C3 climate and radiator fan error?

I want to share my experience troubleshoot climate and radiator fan issue with more people.

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 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 scanner from a Chinese shop, hooked it up my C3 this morning and got a P0485 code. Below is a screenshot of Lexia-3 software (Diagbox) .


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.

So I’m stuck, I admit not knowing what to do, I tried on multiple computers, I do not get better. Please see the picture: lexia-3-citroen-peugeot-diagnostic-error-1

How to disable Mitsubishi TPMS light with Lexia3 V48 xs Evolution Diagnostic?

I have a 2010 EVO X and like many homeowners, I looked for a way to disable the “Service TPMS” annoying light for a long time. The good news is I finally found a thread of “forums” Mitsubishi and got the light disabilities. Here is how I did. Lexia-3 a code reader is required in this process.

Follow the procedure to do:

– Then navigate all the way in the PP2000 10A & lexia v46 Dir and find update_lexia_346.22.exe
– Run this update V46 pointing to the same location you selected from the V45 install

2) Connect Lexia 3 interface to the OBD port in my EVO X.
– Upgrading of V46 will revert to this point, simulating a web update.
– Make activation and make sure that you are using LEXIA-346 since you’re up to date
You just activated this way, otherwise you must re after the upgrade.

3) Select “C-Crosser”, “Lexia”, “Diagnosis” and “test function”. Choose the category based on your selection, there take SUV as an example and come to the ECU list.
– You will see the ETACS interface also called “BSI”.
– Select BSI – Configuration – Manual configuration then there will be two options for the configuration of the vehicle and customer choice.
– Select the client options, select “repair”.

4) Enter the menu “ETACS-SUV default programming.” Select “Under the inflection.” TPMS is included the option. The current state is present (ON).
5) The system is currently paralyzing the state of inflation.
6) The system automatically disables inflaction parameters. The status now turns to “away” (OFF)
7) the TPMS light is off.
