My car is a Peugeot 308 HDI. When I start the car the following warning comes Eco drive deactivated How do I reactive the Eco drive and is it safe to drive whilst deactivated

Eco Drive is the automatic stop/start system that some refer to a a mini-hybrid.

I know little about them but I believe the facility can be switched off and therefore can be switched on. I don't know how but the answer might be found in the vehicle handbook or at your local Peugeot dealer.

It will certainly be safe to drive - the facility automatically stops working if the battery charge level drops below a certain value. Whenever the battery is disconnected/removed/replaced the on-board computer must be reset with dedicated diagnostic equipment for the system to work correctly, I hear.

Automatic Car door lock is constantly unlocking.

My first thought would be the lock module thinks one of the doors is not closed. You may need a shop manual to get the test procedure and the wiring diagrams.
