Question about Mini Cooper
Check if there is any short circuit somewhere.
A simple test with switch off, disconnect (+) battery terminal wire and observe any spark when trying to reconnect, or using an Ameter check if electric current flows with start switch at position off. If yes this will cause battery to discharge when you are not driving your car. Then your cars wire harness connectors, fuse box, etc need to be checked thoroughly by an expert. Good luck!

If you battery is old it might need the lquid inside renewing, or replacing the battery. its a cheep way to see without getting to deep in to the electrics. anothe thing to try is leaving it "on Charge" for a good 24 hours.
hope this helps
