SOURCE: 2006 mini overheating

Check for leaks around the Coolant Overflow Reservoir (the yellow bottle in the middle of the firewall.) I had the same problem with over-heating, and replaced the thermostat with no help. I went to the dealer and picked up the Reservoir for $26~, installed it in 5 mins (at work) and haven't had a cooling issue since.

SOURCE: engine fan won't turn off

That's a good one. Follow the cable. Most of the cases is under the hood near cabin wall.

if the car is warm the fans are designed to continue to run untill temp drops to normal temp and then fans shut off. This is a normal operation of the fan nothing to worry about. Now if they stay running for more than 10 minutes you have a problem.

Mini cooper fan keeps running when key is turned off and enngine is not hot


The resistor on the fan is bad. You can purchase a new resister or buy a new fan assembly. Mine did the same thing and I just purchased the whole fan assembly and changed it out. to change the resistor, you have to take the fan assembly out. So I just changed the whole thing.

2002 Mini Cooper overheating when idling with the airconditioning on. Initially the air is cold and as the car engine temperature heats up the air conditioning gets warmer. Also, the radiator overflow cap...


Most cars have an 2 electric fans on the radiator. One will run when the coolant gets hot and the other will run when there is more cooling demand OR it will run when the AC is turned on. My guess is, the second fan is not running when your AC is. Your AC system creates heat of its own. The heat is removed through the condenser (radiator-like coil) which is usually located in front of your engine radiator. Without a fan the heat is transferred into your engine radiator causing it to over heat. This would explain why it overheats while idlling and not while driving. While driving, air is flowing through the radiator and condenser. to provide the necessary cooling. In short, check to see if both fans are running when the engine is hot and the AC is turned on.

When I turn my car off the air conditioner still runs-I needed a jump the other day because it ran all night and wore the battery down.


OK, if the relay for the A/C fan is bad, then the radiator's fan will keep running after turning off the ignition. Also, if the fan for ventilation of the A/C in the cabin stays on after the ignition is turned off, the relay for that is bad.

Good luck on this repair.

Hi I have a Mini One, yesterday and tonight when I


hi it sounds like the engines electric cooling fan has automatically come on as the engine has got hot enough for it to be cooled down
you may have never noticed it before .
check your coolant level and your oil level to be on the safe side and keep an eye on the temperature gauge the fan should come on when the gauge goes past normal running teperature if its coming on a lot there may be a problem but its probably working as normal

Does it keep running or shut off after a bit? the fan will run untill the coolant tempeture switch is satisfied, but chrysler mini vans are notorious for electrical problems that usuall surround dash problems, could be a bad collant temp sensor or a stuck relay

Both motor fans keep running after car is shut off


Faulty fan relay, little square box, costs an arm and a leg. Try the local automotive parts recycler, you can't get BWM parts at the junkyard :)
The little box is located, with teutonic efficiency, next to a bunch of little boxes just like it. Check your owner's manual or a shop manual for which one it is.

Overheat, and running fan


check your oil and coolant level to be on the safe side but it sounds like everything is normal if there is no airflow across the radiator the fan will operate when the engine gets hot even with the engine off
