Default Citroen 2005 C3 1.4 petrol automatic snow and sports mode flashing while driving

Hi

I recently bought a citroen C3 automatic petrol 1.4 2005 model. The car has been driving well both in city and motorway and have no issues ,I have one warning light - DSC/ASR light which is fixed and on and also the snow and sports mode keep blinking when i drive the car . There seems to be no issues while driving , wanted to check on possible causes and remedies for this and is this a major concern for which i need to take the car to a garage ?

Need to plug in the diagnostic to read the error code. Could be as simple as a weak battery or something more serious.

The flashing indicates that you need to change the gearbox fluid ASAP.

Default Gear box oil change

is it possible to check the gear box oil level , means is it due to low oil level or just that the oil has got bad , if i take the car for a general diagnostics will the service person able to spot it or do it go and ask him to change the gearbox oil?

I do not think the gear oil level, unlike the engine oil, can easily checked by the driver. Instead of just topping up (given that this car is second hand and more than 10 years old), maybe it's good to just change the oil

You should mention to a competent Citroen mechanic that the lights are flashing. He should be able to give u a sound advice. I'm not too sure if other workshops will know what the flashing lights mean, or have the diagnostics to help you read the error code, if any.

Please change the oil ASAP or risk damaging the gearbox. The flashing lights indicate the oil quality has deteriorate.
