My Citreon C4 2005 has 60000 miles on the clock, it would not start for me about 5 weeks ago, after several attempts with jump leads we got it started again, 2 weeks later the same thing happened me. On turning the key, the car engine is turning and then kicking out on me and will not start also I was getting messages on my screen saying anti intusuion alarm. I had my garage collect it, not a citreon dealer, the garage put the car on diagnostics and nothing is showing up. Initally I was told that the electrics of the car are gone haywire, now I am been told that the computer of the car may have shut down, my garage cant find the route of the problem so he today is bringing the car to a citreon dealer. Just checking with you regarding this happnening a 2005 year old car and in your opinion is this normal for the computer of the car to shut down.I had head gasket issues with this car about year and half ago and my garage done the neccessary work free of charge. Im been told that the price of a new computer for the car is approx 900euro plus labour. Im not even sure of the value of the car at this stage.
Thanking you in advance for your information.
