Lights left on and the battery went flat on my lads peugeot 206 diesel 2002 recharged battery, the car will not start message on dash ECO MODE CAN ANYONE HELP WITH THE PROBLEM PROBLEM ?


Economy mode usually comes on when the computer senses a low charge on the battery and conserves power to start the vehicle.
1. If you can start the car by jump starting from another vehicle with its engine running then you know your battery is the problem. In some cases when you completely drain a battery you have issues with them ever after until they fail completely.

2. If you cannot jump start from another vehicle then turn everything off and disconnect the negative and then the positive lead on the battery terminals and leave it for 10 minutes. Then connect it back up again (positive lead first and then negative lead last) and put the key in the ignition and turn on the ignition but do not start the car. Leave it there for 5 minutes and then turn the ignition it off. Then try starting again.

3. You have not mentioned if there are any other warning lights being displayed on the dash which you have not mentioned in your question. Please check this carefully because it is also relevant to this problem if there are other warning lights displayed.

Solid red dot came on right side. Now turn key and nothing


3.7L gas or Diesel? (know what you are driving?)
jump start it , call AAA and do that.
or uses your jumper cables, buy them and keep them hidden in car at all times.
battery lugs all white with corrosion, clean them.
wiggle shifter yet.? while cranking?
try to crank it, in Neutral not park , yet?
cranking takes 20 times the current than headlights. or more diesel.
and 1000s times DING power. so means nothing.

what light the glove box oper guide tells you all lamps
book is free if lost (ask)
30 objects, which one is RED?
on my 08 the solid red (has no mark) is SKIM immobilzer light.
(its a stealth light on purpose) #20 is left. (kills fuel not cranking)



25474689-nm5j4bbnbv1totvdynd4zlxy-2-0.jpg
did you mean, the Charge lamp was ON, just before the ENGINE
died, lamp #10 , THAT MEANS the charge system failed.
and that cause the battery to DISCHARGE.
and then engine must die. (all cars)
charge the battery and cure #10 lamp warning true cause.
never drive and ignore warning lamps if you in fact did.

how'd I do?

Problem charing


"charging"?
assuming you have got a battery warning light on dash? And it obviously doesn't go out. check the large red wire at the back of the alternator with a multi meter and you should have same voltage there as at the battery and its in good condition . If you have a good voltage there and a good engine earth then you need to disconnect the small wire at the back of the alternator - that should put out the warning light on the dash, This will prove the warning light circuit is ok. As long as your vehicle battery is ok and has a good voltage the only other thing that could be wrong apart from the alternator itself is the drive belt being broken or loose.

Driving along lights dimmed, instrument panel died, loss of power then engine cut out & wouldn't start. Starts with a jump but when i turn key to heat glow plug, instrument panel goes mad


I assume there's a problem with alternator. Check the grounding to engine, check continuity of a positive wire between alternator and battery. the energizing voltage should be checked as well. Might be the bad connection between battery and vehicle body grounding. Diesel cars are sensitive even in a little loss of connection and rust in the connection points.

MY PLYMOUTH GRAND VOYAGER 'S HEADLIGHT'S AND DASH LIGHTS WORK, BUT THE ENGINE WON'T TURN OVER. THERE IS NO SPARK COMING FROM THE ELECTRICAL WIRES.


When you say no spark, are you talking about the spark plugs, or just the general wiring?

If the engine won't turn over, then it isn't moving, and if it isn't moving then you need to check the following in this order:

1) Does the battery have power i.e. around 12.4 volts or over?No? Charge, test or replace battery.

2) Do the car's head lights dim considerably if turned on when attempting to crank? Yes? Possible lack of battery charge or faulty battery.

3) Assuming the battery is fine, can you turn the dash warning lights on and off with the key? No? Faulty ignition switch.

4) Is there a click sound when you turn the key, but no starter motor spin? Check starter motor connections or replace starter motor.


If none of the above prove to be of help, then please report.

Warning lights


hi

the handbrake light means your handbreaks on you switch might need to be replaced
the battery light means the battery is low on charge either a new battery or alternotor need to know more to answer that one
the curled up wire light could be the engine light

i would say maybe a wire has burnt out of you computer in the car has broken i would get it looked at before driving.
