Does the fan cut in when engine is hot? if not you need to check the fuse for the fan, if fuse ok you need to check fan sensor, if thats ok it is possible the radiator is chocked or the impeller has broken up on the water pump, let me know how you get on

Open the FOB and replace the battery. The two halves of the fob come apart and there is a battery that you can replace.

Hi the garage has just charged the alternator on our 2004 Mini Cooper as the battery light was coming on. The heater was working fine and blew hot air prior to this. The heater is now blowing only cold air...

Ask garage if they removed and water hoses to swap alternator.Needs proper bleeding after draining. Minis prone to water loss and overheats...dont drive till a 59 plate cooper in workshop now...needing full engine due to overheats. Very important to bleed properly and pressure test to ensure no leake ( usually fron thermostat housing.

My heating is just blowing cold air no matter where i position the control. Is this something only a garage can repair or is there an easy fix is mini one 2003 1.6 modle

Try checking the heater control valve. You can change it yourself relatively easy. Under the hood. Follow the heater hose from the engine, and as you get closer to the firewall, you should run into it. It is in line with the hose, and should have a vacuum hose connected to it. Costs about $40. Hope this helps....

I have an 04 mini cooper, every 3 months it decides to throw out its water and over heats, it only over heats when sat in traffic, can anybody please tell me what it could be? have taken it to the garage...

If the fault is occcuring only when in traffic, that is when it is idling with no free flow of air to the radiator to cool off, then the suspect can be the radiator itself.
If some of the radiator pipes are blocked then this can be possible.
So do a good flushing of the radiator when a little warm flush out use coolant and flush after few days, if rust is seen repeat till all the rust is over.

My service engine light came on on my 2003 mini

If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.

A solid light can mean anything from a loose/faulty gas cap to a transmission issue.

This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.

In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially turn on.

I have a 2005 mini cooper that keeps losing coolant. i ahve taken it to the garage where it was bought but they said they cannot find a fault.

My advise: Take it to another garage and let them test the coolant to see if there is a headgasket problem and then go back to where you bought it. I think the garage you bought the car is trying to stall and delay until you have no warranty.
