25-8-2015: On a Citroen C4 1.2 EAT6 the radio/navigation system switches itself off and then re-boots every 3 - 4 minutes, time lag approx. 30 seconds in all. "It is doing it practically every day at the moment. Citroen dealer says it is now a known problem and the Italian manufacturer (Magneti Marelli) is working on a software fix. The system also switches itself off in radio only mode (i.e. the engine not running) but doesn't come back on. This suggests to me that it's potentially electrical in nature and not a software problem.
9-1-2016: Report of clutch slip on 2013 Citroen C4 1.6 EGS at 40,000 miles. Citroen dealer merely quoted for replacement clutch at £1,459 when a good Citroen dealer or good specialist can electronically adjust the actuator software to take up clutch wear.
2-6-2016: Intermittent heaviness felt in electric power steering of 2016 Citroen C4 BlueHDI 100. Might be an earth fault.

The fuel injectors supply rail could develop a leak over a period of time leading to a drop in fuel pressure in the injector supply rail which can affect the operation of the stop start system. In some extreme cases the engine might not restart and a spray of petrol under the bonnet may occur which is a fire risk. Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected and check the fuel injector supply rail. Where necessary replace the fuel injector supply rail.
