I really think it is a timer. 12.2 Volt is not a depleted battery. I've seen lower voltages on my battery, but the timeout is always around those 30 minutes (on my model, that is).
Current "fleet":
2003 406 Estate 2.0HDi 110 - 7 seater
2001 Citroen Saxo 1.6i 8v 100

Previously owned:
2000 406 Sedan 2.0 HDi 90
2000 406 Coupé 2.0i 16v 138 - Riviera Blue

Yes :shock:

I tried to up the voltage and it still shut down on me after 30min. And i ant restart it just by starter cranking. It has to have ignition.
I have a friend that converted Citroen C2 and he had to input 11111... to BSI register to have 4000years between ECO mode trigger :lol: . Does anyone have the EEPROM position of eco mode timer on 406?

Also i would like to try to put 14V on alternator excite input. It is difficult to access alternator without dissassembly. Since i cant drive my car to a shop i need to try everything insitu before i take it there. Do you know where the wire goes?
