Ds7 won't start

Post by Donna1978 »

Hi
Can anybody help please. My car has gone into energy economic mode and won't come out of it. My car won't pit the ignition on at all now so can't plug a diagnostics computer to it and since the energy economy mode come on it's saying park brake failure and steering lock is on even though it isn't can anybody help please

Economy mode does not affect starting or running of the engine, nor does it prevent diagnostic communication with the BSI or engine ECU. So I think you have a different problem.

If you've replaced the battery, you need to reinitialise the fobs to unlock the electronic steering lock and permit starting. Look in your owner handbook for the procedure (under the section for replacing fob batteries and reinitialising).
