I have a 2013 Grand C4 Picasso, diesel, semi-automatic. I was driving all day yesterday then went to pick my son up from school. I was quite early so sat in the car and stupidly had the radio on. When we went to go the car won't start. There is no noise at all when turning the key. It just has economy mode active on the dash. I have had no warning lights, the tank is quarter full. I have had to leave the car there and am busy today so will call roadside assistance tomorrow, but thought I would just check wether there is anything I could do before then.
Thank you,

Your battery is probably goosed, especially if it is the original from the car being new. Modern cars are very dependant on a strong battery as there are so many electronis systems, so, if yours is 5-6 years old it could well be the culprit
