These specifications have been taken from the owners manuals of the relevant model of XM and should be more accurate than many of those currently offered on the web. If you are aware of any factual inaccuracies, please inform me.

I would welcome any additional information, provided it is available for both S1 and S2 and is from a reputable source.

No acceleration or mpg figures because Citroën don't see fit to provide them and the figures I have seen elsewhere have varied so widely and, in some cases been so obviously inaccurate, that I won't use them. Anyone got some Motor/Autocar road test figures?

S2 still under construction - I'm going to risk trying to reproduce the fusebox diagrams...
S1 specs will follow when that's done.

Anytime I'm bored I might just scan and pdf the S1 and S2 owners manuals as many owners don't appear to have them.

Fuse box layouts

Please note, there can be considerable varaition in XM electrical systems, I have reproduced the diagrams from an S2 owners manual, but still suggest caution - don't come whinging to me if your XM vaporises after changing a fuse according to these diagrams!

Creating that has just bought home to me how useless it is, I'm wondering if it was worth doing. It's probably not immediately obvious, but if you read the table carefully you'll find some items are aparently protected by up to three fuses... Oh well, use with caution. I wonder what the guy who originaly made those function descriptions was on?
