Procedure for Battery Disconnection (The 3 minute rule)
1.Whenever a vehicle battery has to be disconnected, switch off all equipment
interior lights etc. close the doors
leaving the driver's
window down.
2. Switch off the ignition and remove the key.

3. Wait a full 3-minutes before
disconnecting the battery.
The BSI must be allowed to go to
sleep i.e into 'Power Save' mode. Do not operate any equipment on the vehicle
during
this time. Remember, even opening the bonnet will wake
up the BSI on the vehicle fitted with an alarm.
If the
battery is under the bonnet open the bonnet first and leave it up. 807 batteries
can be disconnected through the
driver's window, remove floor
cover first.
Always disconnect the DIAG, as the BSI does not
go to sleep when connected. Ensure that a plip from the same Peugeot
model type is not operated within range of your vehicle as this
will also wake up the BSI.
Procedure for Battery
Reconnection
Unless instructed otherwise by Peugeot or Product
Service
, you must always carry out the following
procedure, often referred
to as a 'Soft Re-boot', to minimise
the possibility of the BSI corrupting its own software when reconnecting the
vehicle's battery
supply
.
Ensure that the procedure for
battery disconnection has been adhered to and importantly all BSI functions were
switched
off with the driver's window left down.
1. Close all doors on the vehicle.
2. Remove
the ignition key if left in the ignition.
3. Reconnect the
battery.
4. Wait 10 seconds.
5. Switch on
the headlights through the driver's window. You will hear a 'Bong'.
6. Switch on the ignition then start the vehicle and check
systems are functioning.
Upon reconnection of the battery: If
any vehicle function controlled by the BSI i.e. interior light is switched
on,
the internal operation of the BSI has the potential to
spike or corrupt its configuration and software program.
