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 what the problem is?

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.

Car started fine and now doesn't. The battery seems to be fine (new). No error code. Any suggestions?


Try removing the Neg battery terminal for about 30sec. This will effectively (re-set) the main computer to default factory specs. It worked on my 2004!! Also might have an ODB2 code reader run by you local auto parts dealer. They can get the codes too.
Have fun,

I have a 2000 BMW 740 i. New battery. Went to start it (was running fine all day), and nothing. Jumped it and started. Chugged a couple times but then ran fine. Got home 45 minutes later. turned off...


check the alternator and wiring to battery. if belt is ok. then when car is off, voltage at battery should be at least 12.6 or better. when it is running, at battery should be at least 14.1 to 14.7. jump start car, try this, with car running, remove negative battery cable car should still run, if alternator is ok. if it quits when taking cable off,of battery. its the alternator thats bad. but if it run ok with cable off. then its your battery.

Mini Cooper temperature gauge goes to red zone, fan comes on


If you have a new thermostat, then your temp sensor is faulty. If sensor is new, then it is the wiring to sensor or problem with the ECM
