Hi,<br style="-sizing: border-; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; line-height: 20px;"><br style="-sizing: border-; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; line-height: 20px;">My DS4 (2012 1.6 HDI) will turn over but not start. It turns on the starter motor fine but wont fire at all, it also only turns for a few seconds before cutting out, as though you've stopped turning the key yourself!<br style="-sizing: border-; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; line-height: 20px;"><br style="-sizing: border-; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; line-height: 20px;">Have tried it with the spare key in case of any transponder issues, but no joy.<br style="-sizing: border-; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; line-height: 20px;"><br style="-sizing: border-; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; line-height: 20px;">Car has been serviced regularly and done 45k and there is half a tank of fuel in it!<br style="-sizing: border-; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; line-height: 20px;"><br style="-sizing: border-; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; line-height: 20px;">So I'm stuck basically, any help at all you could give me would be much appreciated!<br style="-sizing: border-; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; line-height: 20px;"><br style="-sizing: border-; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; line-height: 20px;">Cheers,<br style="-sizing: border-; font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; line-height: 20px;">Ty

I don't think so. It started first turn after being sat for a week, but then it drove 20 meters, cut out and wouldn't start again?

Yes, AA. Will have to call them out I guess. I don't really want them to tow me to a Citroen garage if he can't fix it and then be at the mercy of the garage to trail and error any repairs they want to try.
Was just hoping that maybe this is a common fault and there would be a simple fix.
