About my C3



Citroen C3 Battery Light Flashing, not really a tip, but an explination of the meaning:

The red battery light on the the dashboard flashes to warn the user that the car has entered 'economy mode'

Econonmy mode or 'Eco Mode' is activated by the car computer (BSI) to save the battery power.


"Economy mode

In order not to run down the battery, when the engine is stopped, your vehicle passes automatically into economy mode after approx. 30 minutes of use of one or more electrical components.

Electrical components relating to comfort are automatically cut off.

To reactivate them, it is necessary to restart the engine.

Note: When changing to economy mode, the battery charge warning lamp starts to flash."
From the C3 Owners Handbook (© Citroen)
