    Default C5 X7 fault displayed

    Morning Citroenians

    Yesterday when returning from an outing the car threw up a fault with the park brake, & then ABS ESP, I know that the rear brakes were getting close to a rotor & pad replacement, so I was speculating that it may be connected (bad pun I know) to this, if I get the brakes replaced will this fix all issues the faults have identified??

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Did it occur when you were starting or driving along , pads shouldnít cause any problems like this , I would be thinking the battery is going.

    The handbrake for X7 is on the rear wheels. There is an off-white plastic spacer on each side at the wheel end of the cables and they collapse in time. Maybe, have a look in case yours need replacing.

    Thanks Guys

    I have booked in for Wednesday for brakes as well as diagnostics of fault, will ask them to check for the plastic spacers.

    Mate, please keep us posted...but I reckon dodgy battery is likely. I have an X7 and haven't struck this (well, any issue TBH) so it would be good to know! My brakes where worn and I had them replaced but no issue similar to what you have outlined, just the old school squeeling to t osay "time to change".

    I've had a couple of strange "problems" with my C% X7 and daughter's Renault Scenic. In both cases the battery was beginning to fail just before it threw the towel completely. Such as 'depollution system faulty'; ESP and some other strange message.

    New heavy duty battery and no more messages. Kevin

    As others have implied - failing battery. If it was winter the car would start but run like an asthmatic dog until warmed up.

    Weird warnings have been the indicator for two battery replacements on mine. If you think that's strange, you should see the Xmas lights show of an XM when the battery is near death!

    Just an update

    The rear brakes & rotors have been replaced plus a brake harness & switch in the dash somewhere, which seems to have solved the issue, however on the day prior to taking in the car for repair the problem made itself scarce, indicating that the old harness was indeed starting to deteriorate.
    Thanks guys
