Dispatch in eco mode and will not turn over

Hi,
I needed to find the fuses for the washer and electric windows and could not find the fuse box in the van cabin. So I opened the engine compartment fuse box and removed and replaced fuses in turn. Found a blown 10a fuse, replaced and then tried to start the van to identify which fuses I had replaced

However, the van is locked in eco mode and won't turn over. Battery light on dashboard flashes. Have quickly removed battery connection and reconnected but no change.

It's a 2007 Dispatch 1.6

Any ideas?

Re: Dispatch in eco mode and will not turn over

Seems like you can't just disconnect stuff anymore.
Found this, which may help.

PROCEDURE FOR BATTERY DIS-CONNECTION (The 3 Minute Rule)

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 ie 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.

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 Peugeot or 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 healights through the drivers window (you will hear a "bong")
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.

Re: Dispatch in eco mode and will not turn over

Hi, thanks for that but problem partly resolved. I again disconnected the battery but left it for a few hours and hey presto the engine started ok.
Have not resolved the non working electric windows as whilst the battery was off I checked all accessible fuses in the engine compartment and none blown other than the 10a one for the washers.

Thanks anyway.

Re: Dispatch in eco mode and will not turn over

The cabin fuses are behind the storage facia below the drivers cup holder. Push it in at the bottom and pull the top.
The handbook suggests that fuse 6 30A is for the Front electric window supply.
