As for me the alternator was the solution for a clicking noise and I pretty much bought a new battery for nothing best advice is have someone look at it before you buy all these new parts that won't be the solution as I had did haha good luck

Check for voltage going to the small solenoid wire on the starter. if you have 12 volts change the starter.

My mini cooper just makes a clicking noise when I try to start it


Bad battery connection or solenoid issues on the starter motor

Mini cooper s won't start


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 .

2004 Mini Cooper automatic.Car won't turn over. Battery indicating 14 volts using multi-meter. I get a single click when I turn the key, then nothing. I suspect bad solenoid. Not sure how to test/check...


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.

On cold mornings Under 32 degrees the car does not turn over. When the outside temp warms up 40 degrees+ it will start. 2003 mini cooper


the battery may be the problem there is a rating on batteries called CCA this is Cold Cranking Amps. This is how much cranking amps the battery has in cold conditions.When it is warmer the cranking amps increase to start the vehicle.

My 2003 MINI Cooper is having clicking noises when turning the wheel. any ideas?


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.
