Scenic 1.9dci Privilege Ocotber 2004. Battery went from being fine to totally dead overnight one month after warranty expired (along with glo plug!). New battery fine, but, prior to death I had alarm refusing to set, no power steering from cold start and wipers stopping dead on road. No such problems since, so, as above, I suspect low voltage created havoc with the software.

Under no circumstances run the engine without a battery being connected. An over voltage spike from the alternator can occur which will wreck every piece of electronic gear in the car.
