the screen has started to turn off and on again about every 5 minutes. Day and night, different speeds, different distances, happens all the time. Ive reset the electrics but this has not fixed it

Check with dealership if there are any software updates available on this fault . Other possible cause could possibly be battery condition low.

This sounds very similar to a problem I had with my Citroen C3. The battery was fine doing everything it should do. However I had a look and found a dry leaf lying close to terminals. I brushed it away. Hey Presto the problem seems to have been solved.

Make sure the DAB is not tuned to a BBC station and that will cure the issue.

I've got the same problem with my C4 Picasso, it only seems to turn off when listening to BBC Channels? But why ?
