Question about 2002 Mini Cooper
I have a mini cooper s and it is overheating. it only does this when i am in traffic and if i dont have the heaters on. I have had the thermastat changed but this has not worked. The Auxhilary fan is working (we did some checks) however it doesnt work by itself. I am at the end of my tether with it now does anyone have any ideas?
There are two stages to the aux fan and if both do not work that overheating often occurs.
make sure that you have both fans. let your car idle and listen to the fan. then turn on the a/c and listen
to the fan again. first with the car idling you should hear the stage 1 fan but as soon as you turn on
the a/c the stage 2 fan should kick on and it should be noticeably louder. If they are working then start looking for coolant leaking.

Make sure your fan is functional. If the fan is not working this can be a problem as it will not cool the engine.
