2005 Mini Cooper S QuestionsRefine by vehicle
what kind of coolant??
smaller engine fan goes on
I was able to pull into a parking lot and stop and shut the car off. I then re-started the car and the gas gauge was showing a full tank and I proceed to work, with no problem. So, what happened ?? This was the first time that I noticed this happening. There was no unusual noises to make you think something was gong wrong.
Usually it goes away after about ten minutes
the clutch seems to be strong but it has to much free play.
i have to have it on the floor before i can shift gears.
also is the boost gauge vaccum or electric operated? right now it isn't working. i am trying to trouble shoot it.
When above happened. My powerstearing failed and driving was difficult, but olso my lights of my heater unit went out and my speedometer, stayed, on 50km/h even after I braked to slow down and suddenly, all neadles droped to 0 heathage, fuel Gage, and km/h, if I steped on the clutch, my heater unit lights went on and warning. Lights. Went off but p/staring still stiff and when I released. The clutch. All back warning. Lights on other light off can it be electrical. Or can solenoids. Have an effect or Tyre pressure did replace. Fuses.Read about p/stearing and fan, I might be wrong but it feels so electrical any suggestions?
ABS, DSC, and flat tire warning lights all are lit. Check engine light and brake light came in a week or two ago. Today interior controls went out (speedometer, gas gauge, temperature gauge, all warning lights) while driving. radio worked and headlight worked. When I pulled in my driveway, convertible top would not go up. I turned car off and on again, all interior lights/gauges came on and top went up. Any thoughts?
My 2005 cooper s will shift eratic and sometimes jump out of gear at highway speeds. It will then get stuck in 3rd. If I stop and put the vehicle in park or shut the vehicle off it will drive fine for a while. First to second is sometimes a crisp hard shift. If I use the "SD" mode with the paddel shifter there are no issues. 76,000 miles on the Cooper. No check engine light and no codes..Thank you Warren
I have 2005 mini cooper s convertible manual 6 speed transmission. I am not able to change gears while car is running. When car is off it will go into all 6 gears. what is the problem????
75K miles. Just bought this car. Engine knocks/pings - not a lot, but is noticable. I do use 91 octane - supect the previous owner used 87 octane.
How do you turn off the air bag at the top center of the speedometer cluster.
