Dave if you try clearing all the cookies from your browser, and re-register with a generic address, like Outlook.com or Gmail, it should work.

I failed to mention earlier that the key does not engage the locks on this car, only the remote unlocks the doors. I know about fully inserting the key. I stupidly closed the hood part way to see if a battery would fit under the hood. . . with the doors locked! I now know how to open the hood of a locked XM . . . much easier than the old DS's.
I tried a back door entry into the British Citroen portal some time ago because a US address was not accepted. I used an address of one of the hotels where I stayed in Cornwall for the required local address. I got far enough in so that the website said I would receive information back, but they never responded. I'm thinking that my web address is now black-listed because I can enter only "woolley.da", not my full address. I will be forced to try again with someone else's computer and E-mail address.
Further major expense items will have to wait until after the holidays, so my XM is now parked. I now have an exotic yard ornament until Spring and tax returns arrive! In the meantime the search goes on for the starting problem.
