It has to drop .so engine isn't turning over then?

no engine is not turning over, when you try to turn engine over all you get is a clicking sound then all power is gone but battery still shows to have full power on meter

can you tell me where I can locate the Relay board or where I can find the relay for the Indicators on my van..Citroen Berlingo 1.9D 2002
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The only light flashing when you turn on the Ignition is the red Oil light.
Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.

I'm sorry I don't have specific info on your model I will opt out another tech may have further info

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Befor you go, When I had my original Battery in a key symbol light came on
Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.

That's what I was after the light being on indicates the immobiliser being on have you got a spare?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
dont have a spare one but if you think that is the problem now, then I will have to get a replacement Immobliser.
Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.

Unfortunatly it's not that simple the best thing to do is have van plugged in and see if there are any codes in there and if it's accepting key .it will be cheaper in the long run

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I will follow your instructions, can you tell me I have a left side Indicator light staying on this is happening to the front and back and side. also I dont have any indicator signals inside the van on the dash. do you have any ideas on this matter,?????
Expert:  Kevin replied 1 year ago.

This again could be caused by alarm immobiliser system I would start will fault code read to narrow down options .

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
will do, Many thanks..
