Default Peugeot Wont Start (battery icon flashing and sometimes windows wipers activate)

I have a Peugeot 207 1.4 2006 model

It doesnt start and there are no error codes.

when this originally happened the cars window wipers activated when the key was turned to the ignition position and when they key would be turned to the run/start position the car would turn over but not start.
At this point i tried a BSI reset but im not entirely sure it worked but now there
are differnt symptoms.

When the key is turned to the ignition position the wipers do not activate instead there is a flashing battery light on the dash similar to what you would see if economy mode was activated, when the key is turned to run the car doesnt start and the battery light keeps flashing.

none of the instrument cluster works, not even the fan blower/automatic windows/radio.

there is still an odometer reading on the dash and im able to communicate with the ECU with a basic scan tool but there are no error codes. im able to read the vehicles calibration ID and o2 sensors so it makes me think the ECU is alright since obd can communicate with it.

what could be the problem? i dont have peugeot planet and i would take it to peugeot dealer but i cant even drive it there also i believe they would be way too expensive.

any help i have no car at the moment .

Could be a few things from the bsi to a relay in the engine bay.

Unfortunately a basic code reader won't see all the fault codes.

Where are u from?

Thanks for your reply; i've managed to get it working after a few hours with it. i took the BSI out of the car and took it apart dispite how much it was raining i was adament to get it done before the new years day. i found the trace leading to one of the external I/O's was fried! blackened i wish i took pictures but i was in too much of a hurry to get this working. after soldering the trace with a jumper wire and putitng it back together i BSI reset and it fired right up. what a releif!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Bsi must have burnt out for a reason you may well have temporarily cured it

I agree with reliable406. Many printed circuit boards are desinged so that certain tracks act like fuses. Excessive current will cause the track to melt. Bridgeing the track with wire may well have apparently 'cured' the problem but if the excessive current draw is still there you could end up with the car in flames.

You really need to find out what caused the track to burn out.

If that's the case, it's bad design. The BSI carries fuses which should protect the power supply and it's own circuitry against downstream faults. Of course, if someone puts in excessively rated fuses, all bets are off, so it might be an idea to compare the fuses fitted against the values in the handbook.

Fuses are not going to protect against every possible scenario.
