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..

SOURCE: 2003 Mini Cooper S sitting in garage 3 months.

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.

It is likely that you have a wire rubbing on the body somewhere. This will intermittently short on the body and blow the fuse. You are going to need to search the wiring the find where the damage is and repair it. If you keep driving the problem is likely to get progressively worse as the wire gets more damaged.

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.

My 2004 mini cooper will not take a jump. The car was running fine. I ran into a store and 3 minutes later attempted to start it and NOTHING. So I attempted to jump it, Mini will not take a jump. Any idea...


If you are trying to jump from the factory "Jump start" terminals and nothing is working, You should suspect your cable to battery connections. Remove the battery cables from the battery and clean the battery posts and the cable terminals. (Auto parts stores sell a very inexpensive tool to do this) Reinstall and tighten the terminals.
