usually the economy mode active sign means that you're running low on battery, but if car doesnt start i suggest you take a look at the fuel pump motor, i had the problem and got it fixed and now the car works like a charm
other possible problems
engine oxygen sensor (highly unlikely though)
best of luck to you

Laughing glad to hear that
and no fuel pump motor is cheap, even though i have a 2003 model car i used a 2005/2006 fuel pump motor as a replacement  Very Happy
