I hope not.
Let's see, but I will ask my local Citroen dealer to check.

What do you mean by the EcoMode? Is there a trick to by pass this feature for the boot opener to work every time?
no tricks, car says not enough power, so nothing electric works without starting engine and there is no 'set' time either, depends on how long driving, battery state and lord knows what else, 1 day it can be 30s and the next a whole minute if you're lucky :)
electric boot doesn't shut so according to the manual to close the boot you pull down the boot using two hands and on a Tourer you could literally hang from it before the resistance 'broke'......now mine is just like a 'normal' boot, easy to do manually without 'breaking' the cluch on the motor

Ok, I thought you discovered a trick to bypass the Ecomode.
Apparently latest ECU update helps.
