Hmmmm weird, Sounds like it got confused when you took the shunt fuse out. Try this. Open the driver's window and the bonnet and take the key out of the ignition. Get out of the car and close and lock the door. Leave it alone for 5 minutes (sleep mode). Now disconnect the battery, both leads and hold the leads together for a further 5 minutes. Reconnect the battery and lean into the open window and switch the lights on. This wakes the BSI up gently! Now open the door on the plip and try to start it. Economy mode will go if and when it starts. If that doesn't work suspect the key has lost its settings and you will need to take it to a Pug garage to recode the key. Have you got a spare key? Does it work? You will need the code card that should have come with the car when you bought it.

In addition to what Nigel said (and he does generally know what he is talking about!), Economy Mode is what the car goes into if you have sat in it for a while with the engine turned off (e.g. sitting waiting in a car park with the radio on). It basically shuts down some of the electrical systems to stop the battery draining, as it assumes you've done this accidentally. Starting the car will clear economy mode, economy mode doesn't stop the car running. As Nigel suggests, rebooting the car may clear your problem (don't you just love modern cars?).

all sorted now.
