Question about 2004 Mini Cooper
We keep getting a flat battery. The battery does hold its charge.
I have taken the courtesey light bulbs out from the footwells, main cabin and boot.
Any ideas or what can be draining the system
Alternator might be bad, or is going bad. I assume you're using a stand-alone batter charger to recharge the battery? If so, you'll need to replace the alternator, as it's not performing the function of recharging the battery. If you take longer trips, the battery might run out of juice and the engine might stop.
If not the alternator, you definately have a short somewhere else that needs addressing.
