Question about 2000 Mini Cooper
Check that the terminal clamps are clean and tight on the battery. The larger of the two terminals is the positive (red) terminal. Very early morris stuff was some times positive earth so look at the terminal size. There is usually a squarish fuse holder that the lid pulls off of under the bonnet (hood) on the fire wall If you got the polarity of the jump leads wrong you may have blown a fuse. Good luck

Welcome to Fixya. There is a good possibility that is what has happened. When the cables are attached right, you should only see spark when you first place them on the battery. And at then, the spark is very small, if any. Sadly, if you have did this, it may have caused severe problems with your vehicle. You have a hot side and a ground side. Hot is red and ground is black. More then likely, you will now need the car scanned on a computer to figure out the damage. It is the only way to do so. Even though it cost a lot of money, it can determine the exact problem. The car needs fire, air, and fuel to start. Your starting system includes the battery, terminals and wires, starter, and your ignition module. You need to make sure your battery is not damaged and it is holding a charge. Make sure the terminals are cleaned and connected good.
