PSA cars with analog instrument clusters have the STOP light to alert drivers of irregularities in engine temperature or coolant that may cause severe damage to the engine. Check your radiator coolant level and top up when it's low. Don't forget to bleed the air from the cooling system. If problem persist, check for loose connectors to the Coolant Temperature Sensor(mounted on the cylinder head) and the Coolant Level Sensor (mounted on the side of the coolant refill tank). For the alarm, check ALL door switches including those for the front hood and the rear trunk. They may be shorted to earth or one of the door becomes ajar. Next time the alarm triggers, check which door looked like it's slightly opened. If so, realign the door hook located in the door pillar.

SOURCE: I have an 1983 HJ60 Diesel Landcruiser with 4.2

have you fixed this problem? if not ,here we go ,hj6ocruiser had 4lt a,2h engine if you have a 4.2 ltr engine in yours it will be ,a 1hz motor and a bugger of a job to fit(i have only done one and even though i have been asked i wont do another) the point being ,with out modification the 2 glow systems are not compat able the early 2h had 11 volt glow plugs then they went to 6 volt with a largeglowplug in the manifold (manifold heater) the 2h did chnge to the superglow system but not untill 1995 (in australia anyway) if you did not change the timer you will find you burn out glow plug s pretti regularly. if you brought it to me ,iwould remove,check and re place (where necessary)all the glow plugs and the manifold heater .then run an independant 12 volt wire, after disconecting the existing feed to the manifold probe, the new wire runs through an
independant switch fitted on the dash board to the manifoldheater.there
is no doubt in my mind that this is the soplution to your problem----- the quick fix is asquirt of aerostart into the air cleaner as you co to turn her over or else loosen the wingnut on top of the air cleaner a teaspoon or so of petrol at wingnut and fire her up, aerostartis best ,if you can let me know how you get on i`d appreciate it youdoit

Citroen xantia electrics are shorting out


If it's an automatic, check if the lever is at P or N. Check if your car has immobilizer that needs you to enter codes before it will start. Gauges moving full scale usually indicates that the instruments cluster is 'missing' an additional IGN supply. When you turn your key to the ON position, all lights in the cluster will light up. This position will make the ignition switch supply 2 IGN power to most electrical systems. If one is missing, the car may not start. Check all fuses under the fascia and in the engine bay. Be on the look out for fuses that have melted 'seats'. They may give intermittent power. Xantia's fuse slots gets melted with age, so the fuse becomes loose and supply gets disconnected.

If the passkey is messed up, there will be a light on the dash that says security, or have a picture of a car with a lock thru it. If there is no light when the key is turned forward, then its NOT a passkey problem.

The fob is infamous for its battery life. It gets drained so quickly that there happens to be a little later when the fob is very close to the door lock, ignition & unnecessary triggers the alarm due to low reception as the battery of the fobs discharges very fast, depending on the model, which has a certain virtual sheild(STARTRECK type) which is triggered by the fobs strength of the signal(radi waves).

Why not try a new set of batteries for your fob?? .................................sodeep

Won't start after cleaning battery terminals


Sounds like you have an aftermarket alarm with starter disable. By disconnecting the battery the alarm reset and the defualt setting is usually to set the alarm automatically (active arming). You have three options..
A. If you have the key fob that went with the alarm you can disarm the alarm.
B. If no key fob is available you can disconnect the battery again, turn the ignition key to the on position and reconnect the battery. This usually doesn't allow the alarm to set and allows the car to start.
C. Remove the aftermarket alarm system. This is usually the long term fix i recommend if the fob isn't available. Option B should get you going though.

I think there is air trapped in the radiator. Remove the level semsor in on the radiator and make sure you fill the water from there first, fit it back and then remove the expansion tank and hold it higher in the air and make sure youget clear running water at the air bleeders. Cheers.
