I had all kinds of error messages on a 2003 mini. And we changed out the battery. And thats when it started with the codes. I put on a brand new throttle body on and still got the same error codes. So I said to myself this is a computer problem. The battery is right next to the computer and the computer locks down by these plastic clips. So when I changed the battery it must have caught on one of those two wiring plugs that attaches to the computer and pulled it lose. So What I did was push the plug back down and it was fixed. In time these locking clips become brittle and break.

Not sure what your question is? I would charge up the battery with a good quality charger. Most are digital nowadays and usually have some diagnostics available. I mention this because if so you will want to diagnose the alternator as well as the battery performance. One or both might be out of commission. Failing that get the battery to a service center and they can determint if the battery is good. Also investigate the starter relay if both the other two check out good.
Have fun,

SOURCE: engine fan won't turn off

That's a good one. Follow the cable. Most of the cases is under the hood near cabin wall.

SOURCE: Mini Cooper P1689 code

P1689 - No communication between ECM & Injection Pump Module. This is why it's a hard start and the peddle isn't acting like it should. There's a problem where the (Computer) ECM, isn't making contact with the Injection Pump module. So the computer doesn't know what the pump is doing or sending. Could be a cut in the wires, corrosion, etc.. So many things it could be, fuel pressure is low.

SOURCE: I have a 2002 mini

This could be for several reasons. I believe that the mini cooper uses 2 02 sensors, so it's possible that you have a faulty second sensor.
Or you could have a broken or missing vacuum line or intake manifold leak.
The other possible causes are a bad engine temp sensor, when the temp sensor is malfunctioning the computer may increase or degrease the fuel supply, If you getting a decreased fuel supply on a cold engine then you would have a lean exhaust.I would suggest starting with the easy stuff first, you can use a can of carb cleaner to spray around the intake and on vacuum hoses to seem if the engine picks up and idle or decreases in idle. This will tell you if you have a vacuum leak on a hose of manifold.
IF you can find a leak then I would suggest locating the other 02 sensor and use a simulator on it also.
And lastly if this didn't fix it then a test of the coolant temp sensor and the engine temp sensor would be in order.

Susan, Unfortunately, when the battery died, the vehicle may lose learned idle position, which will cause the vehicle to stall and could run erratic. Check the attached links,instruction and guides to see how relearn procedure may be done. Good luck.

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.

I had a reconditioned gear box in my mini cooper


Go to a Mini main dealership with proof that you own the vehicle. Also take along the servicing record. Using the VIN chassis number on the vehicle (and also in the service book) the dealer can look up the radio code for you but they may charge a fee. Most main dealers will give it to you for free if you ask nicely or are having any other work done on the car by them.

I'm puzzled by one thing though: a 2007 Cooper should still have been under the manufacturer's warranty, so a duff gearbox would be replaced by a Mini dealer. Part of the job would be to re-input the radio code. If this is what's happened and they couldn't provide you with the code I'd complain vociferously and get it fixed elsewhere in future.

2003 Mini Cooper S sitting in garage 3 months. Battery dead. Is it true the negative contact is on some other part of the car? Very strange. Is the battery ruined now? Help.


battery may be good yet you could recharge it, and if it doesn't go dead in a day or so it probable good. or take it in to a auto parts store and have it tested.
Note: If you are going to park a vehicle for long periods of time it is wise to either start the motor and let it run for 10 mins or more once a week or disconnect the battery. I usually just disconnect the possitive side.
