Citizens Bank Credit Card


The Citizens Bank Credit Card site is down for maintenance.

Try connecting again in a few hours. (105)


This has been an issue for several weeks now, I can log into their website with no problems and can download a report.qfx file and then import it into quickbooks, but the connection fails.

Hello there, @viprides.


The error 105 means that QuickBooks Online is unable to connect with your financial institution's website at the moment. This error can be usually fixed by running a manual update.


To do that:

  1. Click on Banking at the left pane. 
  2. Select the account. 
  3. Hit Update
  4. If prompted, enter your Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) credentials.
  5. Press Continue update.

If the problem continues after 72 hours, I suggest contacting our Customer Care Team. They have the tools like the remote-viewing session that can help verify the root cause of this issue and can open an investigation ticket if necessary.


To reach them:

  1. Click on Help at the top menu bar.
  2. Hit on the Contact Us button.
  3. Enter a brief description of the issue in the What can we help you with? box.
  4. Press on Let's talk.
  5. Select on Get a callback.
  6. Key in your contact details, then tap on Confirm my call.

I've had nothing but problems with connecting my Citizens bank accounts for years.  It'll work once in a while... then not at all, even though my login and password haven't changed.  Citizens Bank has no answer, says it's QB's fault.  Super frustrating!  Please help!

Utilize the trial version of MT Online to isolate the issue. It is designed to import into any bank or credit card in QuickBooks Online, so there is no specific setting needed. If the same error persists, there is an ongoing problem at your bank.
