SOURCE: Dashboard fault
I too have a Peugeot 206 - and has given me nothing but grief - mostly electrical.
The fact you are suddenly losing systems, and draining battery points to a short in the wiring loom - which is a common fault on pugs.
I advise you trace the wire from the rear heater to the fusebox (it's labeled in there). Use a cheap multimeter - pull the fuse out and check the wiring both to the heater (resistance to good earth) and the supply( check for 12V )with the switch on. You may end up undoing the loom cover in the engine bay - but check your feet area first for any damaged wires. Try wiggling the loom with the ignition switch on and in neutral to find the problem. Often just taping it up properly solves it.

the best thing you can do for this car is drain the tank and start again. the injection system this car uses is a very very good but tempermantal one and poor fuel quality or contamination(like water) will feel like the world is coming apart. change the fuel filter also which is in the rear near the right wheel. it will be a pump with the filter right next to it. these are really great cars. once the tank is drained and good fuel poured in, replace the spark plugs with bosch w8dc with a plug gap of .032".

Testimonial: "The only dash board indication is that the vaccum gage is showing wide open throttle instead of normal for the road speed being driven at."
I would check for fuel,(pressure and injector pulse), spark, and compression, before checking any codes. Lack of any of these basics can result in codes, and then you waste alot of time chasing a symptom, instead of the actual problem.If more people followed basic diagnostics, which always come back to these three basics, rather than chasing codes first,they would find no starts much more quickly.
