2005 Citroen C3 1.6i - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

You need locking pins for both cam shaft pulleys as well as for the crank. The cam pulleys each have a hole in them which line up with a hole in the cylinder head through which an 8mm bolt cam be used to lock them. If you are looking at the cam pulleys from the RH fender side, the LH pulley hole locks at about 5 o'clock and the RH pulley at about 7 o'clock.

The crank locking pin is in an awkward position and a bit difficult to access. the hole is behind the oil filter housing and the pin locks into a hole in the back of the flywheel.

Please note that if your cam belt has snapped this engine will bend valves. If it is a scheduled belt change then it is quite easy to line up the marks and do the belt replacement.

Either check with an auto parts store or go to the dealership to see if they can tell you. Our, look in a Chilton manual for your make and model vehicle and the information should be in there. Or, you could search on the internet.

I am totally wrong here no doubt but this fault sounds like a bad connection on a multiplug harness somewhere under the bonnet in the engine compartment

I had the same problem.when I used my main key my car wouldn't start and I got the message "anti theft faulty". The key and the remote still unlocks and locks the doors and turns the lights on/off but it just wouldn't start my car. I was able to start my C3 by using the spare key. The main key is still faulty and if used brings up the same message.

You have short. Check to see what else is connected to the same fuse and start isolating wires to see which one is the one shorted, you'll need a test meter to check for continuity and trace the short otherwise you'll be buying more fuses

The best way is check fuse using circuit tester with lamp, if all fuse is ok generally first time the electric power will turn the main relay ON
