I have a citroen c4 Picasso which starts fine but comes up with a notice saying gearbox faulty.as it an auto it won't then go into gear. It will do this even when I'm driving and just goes into neutral. It started with my heater fan not working and is getting worse I've just spent 600 quid on it as the turbo and the whole oil system was blocked.is it dead for ever now or can it be repaired

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

What has to be done from here since you do have this message coming up is to have the fault codes read out/checked with a compatible scan tool that will plug in and can read all computers in your model.Once this is done there will be at least one fault code set that will then need to be diagnosed to then locate and repair this issue.This may be an issue with a solenoid or range position sensor or another component at fault in the gear box so the codes do need read out to help locate the cause.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
