Hello and Welcome to justanswer...

Eco Mode - or Economy mode as you mention - comes on on these vehicles when the main car battery has dropped low on charge..

You can either try charging the battery with a proper battery charger - or have it tested - and fit a new one if its failing..

Usually to be honest , its a case of a failing battery - so you need to have that checked properly and progress from there...

Once you have a full powered battery again - the message will reset / go off..

This can also be caused if some electrical item has been left powered...

I Sincerely XXXXX XXXXX have helped you - Please ask me if you need more help...

Kind Rgds, MIKE
