Is there a message on the central display saying economy mode active ? Did you follow the correct procedure for disconnecting and reconnecting the battery on a Peugeot ?
What about the battery connection ? If you dont do it properly it will cause some of the problems you have.

Whenever a vehicle battery has to be dis-connected, switch off all equipment,
interior lights etc, close the doors leaving the drivers window open.
Switch off the ignition and remove the key and any DIAG equipment.

Wait a full 3 minutes before disconnecting the battery.

The BSi must be allowed to go to SLEEP i.e. into "power save mode". Do not
operate any equipment on the vehicle during this time. Remember, even
opening the bonnet will wake the BSi on a vehicle fitted with alarm.

If the battery is under the bonnet, open the bonnet first and leave it up. 807
batteries can be dis-connected through the drivers window, remove floor cover
first. (note, Pics are under the passenger seat)

ALWAYS disconnect any DIAG equipment and do not operate any plips from
other vehicles during the 3 minute waiting period.


PROCEDURE FOR BATTERY RECONNECTION
Unless otherwise instructed by Product Service, you must always
carry out the following procedure, often referred to as a "soft re-boot", to
minimise the possibility of the BSi corrupting its own software when
reconnecting the vehicles battery supply.
Ensure the procedure for battery disconnection has been adhered to and
importantly all BSi functions were switched off with the drivers window left
down.
1 Close all doors
2 Remove ignition key if left in ignition
3 Reconnect battery. DO NOT open any doors
4 Wait 10 seconds
5 Switch on headlights through the drivers window (you will hear a "bong") (note: Snap-on says Side-lights)
6 Switch on ignition then start the vehicle and check system functions

NOTE: Upon reconnection, if any vehicle function controlled by the BSi i.e .
interior light is switched on,the internal operation of the BSi has the potential
to spike or corrupt its configuration and software program......

Hi, if you open the drivers door with the key still in the ignition, do you get a 'bing bing' with a message on the display..??

If there is no sound, then its likely the key has lost its 'match' to the car which means the key will need to be reset, using Planet.

If there is a 'bing bing' noise, your car isn't immobilized and the issue lies elsewhere.

Check the connections to the battery, the starter and the earth leads that connect to the bodywork ( I don't know where these are but someone will know.. )

Nothing in your original post should have made this happen.

Disconnecting the battery might have made things worse as ginger says is the car telling you key is in ignition with door open ?

Forget the other problems they are symptoms of the real problem check earth wires on the engine and body

Not starting does NOT mean the immobiliser is the reason.

Hi All
Thanks for all the help
cant believe it was the battery flat after all the messing around
the battery is brand new so never even give it a fault but think it can go back if happens again as alternator is okay as checked it
thanks again :)

Mine started up the other day with message "passanger air back disabled"

Even though the switch was in on position, switched of car, turned air bag off and on again, restart car.

Message gone.

Just a thought,

since you had a new battery go flat. have you thought to check your alternator.

it is possible to have a battery fail before its lifetime but generally its rare if its a good battery.

check the alternator is putting out the correct voltage. sometimes the rectifiers can fail and it will put out excessive voltage which can make the battery liquid boil and spilll out.

or it will put out low voltage and not charge the battery.

Also worth checking how many amps it is putting out.
