Sounds like you need a BSI re-set.

Is that something I can do myself ?

Yes, It's fairly straightforward.
Take a look at these instructions:


Put the driver's window down, lift the bonnet and ensure all equipment is switched off.

Ensure all doors are closed and remove key from the ignition.

Wait for 3 minutes, disconnect the vehicle battery and wait 15 seconds.

Reconnect the vehicle battery, wait a further 10 seconds (do not open doors.).

Switch on the side lights through the driver's window.

Switch on the ignition and check system's functionality.

Hold lock button on key down for 10 seconds.

Remove key open & close door test central locking system.

Start the engine and complete the system's check.

Failure to follow this procedure could result in incorrect operation of many BSI related items.

Fair enough! Find a local INDEPENDENT Citroen/Peugeot repairer and give them a ring
and ask them how much to do it. Shouldn't be too bad.....It's what they do all day!

I'm thinking it may also be a bad earth at the steering column but your independent will be able to sort that out easily!

Superb Geoff thanks il have a go at that ,,

I like my berlingo very much but it seems like there are allot of problems with them . I had other makes before that never had things like horns not working etc ,
For me it seems like as soon as I get one thing fixed something else brakes ,
