Why does the Mini Cooper engine not start?
Years 2001-2007

Answer

We see in this guide one of the most common problems of the Mini Cooper first series; we note in particular that the car has difficulty starting or does not start at all, sometimes an error code and the warning light on the instrument panel appear. If the car has difficulty starting then the problem will surely be caused by the flat battery; then let's try to check the voltage with a tester (the voltage must be higher than 12V to be charged); therefore we replace the battery if it is found discharged!
