03 1.4 wont start, battery warning light flashing - dontlikec3
My wifes C3 1.4 petrol wont start following the battery dying a couple of weeks ago. Since then i have replaced the battery and coil pack. The car currently shows as in "eco mode" and the battery warning light keeps flashing. I have scoured the net for a clue to what the issue is, even had a friend in a garage put it on his diagnostic computer but no faults showed up. i have tried to reset the BSI following the instructions found on the net but still no difference. this really is winding me up now and any help would be appreciated.

I have a similar problem: all of a sudden the car will simply NOT start and the battery light flashes. I also tried to reset the BSI and I also took the car to a garage and the diagnostic computer shows everything working perfectly. I'm confused. I hear no injection sound when I turn the key. Mine is a 2007 C3, flex, 1.4. It´s driving me and hte technicians I know crazy. Any help or advice will be extremelly appreciated. Thanks.
