My 2005 mini cooper went in for minor service basically an oil change (everything else running perfectly) and now it won't start - mechanic asked for spare key and that didn't work.


Hello!
Why did your mechanic used his computer (notebook) for resetting service warning? It can be reset by holding the trip button and turn the ignition on, then release at reset message, then press again trip, until the message flashes and then release and press short again.

You can try to reset BCM by disconnecting battery leads, leave it one hour, then reconnect, turn the ignition, without starting the car, wait one minute, then start the car.

Body control module


you may have a wire not grounded properly or a short that is confusing the cpu-I would suspect the steering column area-do you have the switching to brights problem while turning-also might try changing both bulbs as something goofy may be happening inside of those right side lights-i e a fillement laying across other fillement-I would start with replacing bulbs as this may be messing with the cpu-cheers Denny

My truck won't start. It won't turn over... only clicking noise.. even with a jump. the headlights work but very dimly.. orange lights next to headlights flash on and off dimly consistently as well...


When a battery is very low, even a jump won't work because the battery takes too much out of the jump. Take the battery out and have it charged up.
If it won't take a charge, get a new one.
But also make sure the battery terminals and cable ends are shiny and greased.

If you really want to be sure, put a voltmeter on it.
A good battery should be 12.5.
When you crank it should go down to about 10.
If it goes below 9, either the battery is too low, or the starter is draining too much.
If it never goes below 11, it is not draining enough, and the solenoid is probably bad.
If when you stop cranking, it comes back up to over 11, then the battery is good, so the starter is probably bad.

2005 mini cooper battery was dead, bought new one and now will not crank. Radio and lights come on.


Have you looked into the PSP (Power Steering Pump) relay, or the cooling fan? This problem has been know to create issues and lead to a dead battery. For more information, read this forum of MINI owners, there are quite a few with your issue, and they are trying to get a recall. the 2005 MINI's also have a headlight recall.

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.

I need to know where the battery is located on my mini cooper S convertable 2005


Most minis have battery fitted either in the boot or under rear seat
if in the boot then look under the carpet and you will find a black plastic cover and its under there
Or the same under the seat.

Nice to see you have brought a good English car.
