Are you sure the AFM you changed was working? Even new ones especially cheap eBay ones won't work from new. Otherwise its a case of checking the wires for breaks, but I think it wouldn't be a low signal it would be an open circuit,
So I'd say try another AFM if that's what the code relates to

It could still be faulty, only way would be to fit it on a working car and swap them over, or take it back to Citroen and tell them your car is telling them its faulty and try and get them to fit it to a car they have and see if it works,

How about visiting a local scrappy and explaining your issue. I know one local to me let me try the part on the car as long as I didn't leave the premises.
