That sounds more like the lock actuator inside the door is bad since it does not function in any mode.You can call a dealer to ask about the possibility of a remote reset.Is this a Mini Cooper?It is listed under mini but I would think they would use the full name.If the remote can't be done and you want to self-repair,just comment to this post and I will get an auto link and I will try to describe how to get inside your door.Good luck!
