Typical isnt it, on holiday from work this week go out this morning, jump in the car turn the key and clik......................flat feckin battery.
Called RAC and sat here waiting for them.
Pretty sure this battery is only a couple of years old so should be still under guarantee, but we'll see

Halfords :lol: I got one of their silver bosche batteries and not a complaint :lol:
Years ago bosch started doing batteries that came with lifetime warranty, needless to say they soon realised that was a bad business move.

Trem your sure theirs not a draw on the battery (boot light) staying on ?
yea RAC man did loads of checks with gadgets and in sleep mode there was NO drain on the battery, did a few other checks and 2 machines said 'CHANGE THE BATTERY' so guessing its definately the batterty

If yours didn't have any power drain, there is nothing for it to detect, switch off, and protect.... just a duff battery it seems.

Economy mode does not stop your battery going flat if car is left with for example lights on. Try put your Park lights on lock your car and battery will be dead in the morning. It happened to me , it's great for preventing you from listening to the radio after 20 min but not so good when it should be required

And so it seams, for me economy mode kicks in soon as i put my key in. Manual says that its supposed to do that when battery is low. I'm just waiting to have it go puff one morning. :)

i left my car last winter when it was snowing really badly in the yorkshire moors, ontop of a hill, in the middle of nowhere...with its hazards flashing for 11-12 hours....started first time.

i did change the battery afterwards to a heavy duty silver calcium bosch battery :thumb:

I left my hazards on for about the same time on a 206 a few years ago and no flat battery either. It does not have Eco mode, so hazards must not draw much current
