Hi

Thank you for your question and sorry for the delay in replying to you. My name is Steve and I am a fully qualified vehicle technician wit over thirty years in the trade, hopefully I can help.

The code P0562 indicates low battery voltage and this may be due to a faulty battery or alternator.

The code P0685 indicates Engine control (EC) relay - open circuit. this may just be a faulty relay.

This relay is located in the fascia fuse box/relay plate 2 the actual relay number varies on build, but it should be either 8 or 12 on the attached diagram.

I hope this answers your question but do please feel free to ask me any further questions.

If this does answer your question please click accept and rate me, this allows me to continue.

Many Thanks

Steve
