According to the French manufacturer, the affected vehicles could have a non-compliant electrical relay's internal component, which could disrupt the starter control.
If the condition occurs, it could cause an unwanted starter activation, causing the vehicle to move if a gear is engaged.
Citroen warns that the defect could also cause the vehicle to overheat, posing a fire risk.
Owners of the recalled vehicles will be contacted by Citroen Australia via mail, and are advised to contact their local dealer to arrange for the inspection and, if needed, repair of the starter control relay.
