[Engine] Possible BSI? Help urgently needed please!
Hi guys, first post on here because I'm desperate for some help!

I have a 2005 berlingo 1.9d van.

I was driving along after an hours drive in the dry, everything was at it should be, then the speedo and rev counter dropped to zero and all the lights on the dash started flashing. I turned the engine off to restart it to see if it would refresh itself but it wouldn't start again, just turned over endlessly. 

The central locking works sometimes but never with the button on the key (since this issue started) I've tried the bsi reset countless times but nothing has worked (unsure if this is because the key lock button isn't working)

I'm stuck for options and I'm hoping someone can help me as I'm a BMW man and don't have much experience with the french stuff!

I'd really appreciate some help guys!
Hi David welcome to the forum sorry I cant help you with any answers to your problem but you need to get it plugged into the Citroen diagnostic software (Diagbox) to see whats going on.
This guy is a member on the forum and his garage is not far from you
He goes by the name of Lighty on the forum.
Hopefully others will come along with some answers for you.
Are we there yet????? Huh

Same symptoms I had when my BSI failed are you having wiper and headlight problems.
When I open a door or put the ignition on the side lights come on yes, but even with ignition on I can't switch them on/off/full beam or even do the wipers. It's got a mind of its own
I does sound like water may have got into the BSI?
It had rained a couple of days before but it was fine for the next 2 days. It's a possibility though I guess, how do I go about removing the bsi to check it?
Yep all the symptoms I had, the BSI is under the dash on the drivers side.From memory it's slotted into two clips on each side then it's a matter of wiggling it out and disconnecting all plugs.

What did you do to fix it? Dry it out? Replace it?

I'll be removing it tonight and want to know if it's worth tring to fix it before I pay through the teeth to replace it
Dry it out and check it for damage - there is a place in Derby that can repair them (just google it) however when water damaged they may get corrupted.

As Tomcat says you are close to Mark (Lighty) he may be the only guy other than a dealer who can help you out here.

A dealer will just replace and reprogram the new BSI at your cost - im sure the last dealer price i saw somewhere on here was around £600
When I removed mine it wasn't wet at all just bad luck on my behalf having BSI failure. I sent it off to BBA Reman for repair they found it to be corrupted went ahead with the repair. When I got it back it had to be coded to the car with a lexia.
