2003 Mini Cooper S won't start

This car has not been started for about 3 weeks. It has sat outside in Chicago. The battery is new and when I tried to jump start the car it just clicked when I turned the key. All the other electric systems worked.

Thanks for the help

It's freezing everywhere today!  I don't know if you can access it, but the positive side of the battery is normally connected to the starter or the solenoid terminal sometimes locate atop the starter.
You can also charge, but not jump, your battery via the cigarette lighter. I wouldn't go over 4-5 amps charge current in case the circuit is fused.

SOURCE: horn not working on a 2003 mini cooper...

If you have removed the front bumper then there were holes in the metal bumper the size of baseballs on either side. Just to the outside of these holes and behind on the core support is where the horns are suppose to be. Your outside temp gauge should be the longest wire on the drivers side that comes through the metal and attaches to the inside of the plastic bumper.

Could be the steering column. I had mine replaced under warranty for the same issue. This is a known problem for first generation MINI's. Talk to your dealer for a replacement.

SOURCE: '03 Mini Cooper Xenon Replacement

If it's oem xenon than it should be 2 lamps. Because they had only xenon on the low beam (d2r type), however begin with changing the high beam. That one is inexpensive, so you could check if there are no other problems (like wiring).
Just open your hood and it should be clear how to open the cover for your high beam.

SOURCE: changed headlight bulb but still not working, in

Keep in mind there are TWO seperate headlight bulbs for each side. One above the other. The first one you see is the highbeam. Look above it for the other rubber boot, its square. That houses the low beam bulb.

Seems like you will have to trace the wiring from that fuse and look for a short to ground. Probably the wire has rubbed through somewhere or whatever it powers is drawing to much..

How do I reset the computer after changing the battery in my 2004 mini cooper S? The car started three times. Now it won't start even though all of the other electrics work


Turn off ignition. Press and hold the trip reset button, then turn the ignition on (don't start the engine), within 5 sec the SIA status will be displayed. Release the reset button. Press and hold the trip reset button for 5 sec, "rst" will be displayed. Release and re-press trip reset button.

The new status should be displayed.

2003 Mini Cooper S sitting in garage 3 months. Battery dead. Is it true the negative contact is on some other part of the car? Very strange. Is the battery ruined now? Help.


battery may be good yet you could recharge it, and if it doesn't go dead in a day or so it probable good. or take it in to a auto parts store and have it tested.
Note: If you are going to park a vehicle for long periods of time it is wise to either start the motor and let it run for 10 mins or more once a week or disconnect the battery. I usually just disconnect the possitive side.
