Question about 2003 Mini Cooper
EVERYTHING WORTS STARTER RUNS BUT WONT START
Hi I'm Peter, You have a system on your MINI that will auto cut the fuel from the factory! The only way someone can steal your MINI is to put it on a flat bed as was said in the last post. Your key has a chip with a code in it, that code changes every time your start you car. Your computer will check this code, if it doesn't recognize it, your car will not start, that's from the factory. If you have the optional alarm system, you have a tilt and motion sensing also, the alarm system will sound when your car is tilted or any door is opened, as was said in the last post also. Your insurance person should know about this and what system you have on your car. Just tell them you have a 2003 MINI Cooper S and if you have a factory alarm system. You should get a discount because you have this. There is a possibility that the chip in your key is bad or needs a battery. I would call the dealership and ask them if it could be one of those possibilities. I have also heard from numerous people about having to get their key reprogramed .Honestly I would not try to bypass it just for the fact of savings on insurance plus there are so many durn thieves out there nowadays. I understand your frustration but I would look at it as a good thing at least you know it works and your car won't be stolen while you're walking the dealership to get the key fixed LOL SORRY ! (if that turns out to be the real Problem) Hope this has been some help. Let me know about the key and sorry you got stuck but really leave it just like it is.
