    run a wire through the bulkhead to the ignition wire on the headunit and run this through a relay is probably your easiest option

    Or just run a wire to the switchable live on the ignition.

    I wondered what economy mode was, I've got the 180 and it came up economy mode whilst engine was switched off. I thought it was just having a laff on average I'm getting 26mpg ooops......lol. seriously though you can get a day light kit that comes with the correct wiring loom and fitting ins . So leds come on during day. Then dim down when you switch on your lights. Error free. So no warning lights on dash. Just look on eBay.

    hi all 206s have economy mode its to stop your battery going flat so there's always enough charge to start the car there are wiring kits you can buy on eBay but I just wired mine up in the engine bay fuse box just use a multi meter to find a live that comes on with the ignition and solder into it mine stay on all the time with the ignition hope this helps

    will do thanks. By the way an inline fuse would be a good idea to.

    You should also find a wire that's live when the lights are on, then you can attach the sensor wire so the DRLs are off when the lights are in.
