Remove battery terminals and clean both posts and terminals
with sandpaper until you see shiny metal. The black coating is lead sulphate which has a high resistance to current flow both into and out of the battery. Even though you say the battery is charged it still fails if there is a bad cell in the battery. have a load test done on the battery to confirm that the battery is good .

I found solution. In my case problem was with connection next to the small electronic module next to the gear wheel. It is module directing red light in proper 'P', 'R', 'N' and 'D' letter.

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, please check if you have fuel. It can be the reason why it won't start. If fuel is good then the problem can be on the fuel pump. If the fuel pump is faulty, it won't sip fuel from the tank going to the engine. A humming sound on the engine will indicate that the fuel pump is working, if you don't hear anything then the fuel pump must be replaced.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

SOURCE: the car won't start; lights,

Check the starter and the starter relay or fuse. A client of mines car was doing the same thing, it ended up being two issues, the starter not working anymore, and a relay that was bad. If I am not mistaken everything should be labeled in the fuse box under the hood and will tell you where the fuse/ relay is for your vehicle

if the clicking noise is from the starter,you can tap the starter while someone tries to start the car.if it turns over and starts then the starter motor will need to be replaced.if you can get to the starter,using the multi-meter you can check to make sure the solenoid is getting battery voltage at the wire that gets voltage when the key is turned.if you do and you have battery voltage at the larger wire on the starter then this will also indicate the stater motor has a bad spot in it and will have to be replaced.the clicking noise is usually an indication that the solenoid is working passing the voltage to the starter armature but the starter is drawing too much amperage to turn the motor over.either way its recommended to replace the complete unit as if the solenoid is bad the motor itself will usually go bad shortly after.

Car started fine and now doesn't. The battery seems to be fine (new). No error code. Any suggestions?


Try removing the Neg battery terminal for about 30sec. This will effectively (re-set) the main computer to default factory specs. It worked on my 2004!! Also might have an ODB2 code reader run by you local auto parts dealer. They can get the codes too.
Have fun,

2006 mini cooper battery unable to turn engine on


Hello and welcome to FixYa!

As a first course of action, I strongly suggest that you have the battery charged. It can be weak that's why it won't power up the starter to kick the flywheel. If the problem still persists then the problem can be on the starter itself. If that's the case, have it replaced to resolve the issue.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Battery light flashing on dash


Hello and welcome to FixYa!


If the battery light is on, I strongly suggest that you have the battery charged. It can be an indication of a weak battery or a faulty alternator. If the battery light still on after charging then the problem will surely be on the alternator itself. If that's the case the alternator should be replaced to resolve the problem.


If the battery won't hold charge even on a new alternator then the problem will be on the battery itself. It surely is in the end of it's service life and replacement will be necessary.


You may try to reset it to by removing the positive battery connector, letting it sit for at least 5mins. then reconnect it again. This will reset the system and can get the battery light off.


Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
