Question Answered: radiator fan stick
February 02, 2010, 11:03 AM
my Cooper had this happen about six months ago. ran the battery down as I was unaware it was sitting with the fan running. Ended up being a bad relay that was a part of the fan. They had to replay the fan entirely, as the relay was integrated into the fan. Just be mindful of when they do disconnect things to replace it, the radio may come up 'DISABLED'. Mine did and without the four digit code to enter into the radio I can not get the radio to play now. Dealership has that code but wouldn't release it without doing a diagnostic on the car. I know that they have the code as long as I have the proof of ownership.
Question Asked: Water and electrical issues

I had water leak in around the sunroof of my MINI and when it found the lowest point it exited to the right of my glove box. Shortly thereafter, it was as if my car was possessed. Windows didn't go up or down, wipers wouldn't shut off, headlights come on when engine starts, AC/Heat doesn't work, door locks are shut down, turn signals don't accuate, dash lights stayed on after key was removed.
I am being told it might be the centralized processing modulator for the electrical system. They are referring me on to a MINI dealership - what am I looking at here in time and parts?
