So the neighbor made the mistake of buying french and now his 206 is flashing lights when the doors are opened, they come up at random times at night draining his battery. Central locking is playing up as well as his wipers. So what do I do being a nice friendly guy? I start telling him horror stories about 1000gbp BSI repair jobs and how Citroen/Peugeot dealer can't find wtf is wrong with the electrics even if the plug x10 Lexias in multiplayer gaming mode. Most likely deeming the repair to expensive and not worthy.
No actually what I also did, apart from telling the stories, I unhooked his BSI module, I removed the casing, didn't bother detaching the boards from one another, and just shoved it in the oven at 200deg gas mark 6 for total of 5-7min. At the end I gave it a Dr. Oetker certificate of excellence...

No more headlights, locking, wiper problems. Cleaning the pcb with a toothbrush and petrol also helps get rid of any previous water damage etc, before putting it in the oven. If you are interested in the process here is a video of how to do it. I've even repaired laptops using this method

Oven method saved me also. 10 thing out of 15 I have saved
like that. If baking first time doesn't help try another time
with slightly higher temp. 205 C or 210 C
As a mark that temp is correct put 0.5 cm peace of solder wire
on the AL foil also. When that peace of solder gets "liquid" after 5-9min
wait 60 sec more and take out the peace from the oven.

Also there are a lot of tuts for Arduino controlled oven heater/re-flower

Best regards,

You could at least use brake cleaner  Wink
