2001-2006 Mini Cooper Troubleshooting

Car Has Become Musty ¶ 

The inside of the car has become musty after extended use of the A/C unit.

Dirty Air Cabin Filter ¶ 

This musty affect can occur because the air filter in the car has become dirty, and could be impeding the flow of air in the car. Before taking the car in for a check up it could simply need to be replaced. For instructions on how to replace the filter refer to the guide for this.

Locking system has stopped working ¶ 

The locking mechanism in your car has become broken or faulty

Damaged Fuses ¶ 

Check inside the locking mechanism to see if the fuses have burned up or broken in the locking actuator.

Locking actuator has broken ¶ 

The locking actuator itself could have become broken and may need to be examined to decide the extent of the damage. To remove the actuator look through the guide that tells you how to disassemble it.

Windows will not roll up or down ¶ 

Your windows are stuck or have become jammed.

Damaged Cables ¶ 

Before going straight to a mechanic for help, you can check to see if the cable wheel could be broken or out of alignment. This is a a common problem among many cars.

Damaged Fuses ¶ 

The fuses could also be damaged or broken, and can affect the window motor. This is another place to look if your window has become stuck. Replacing the fuse could be a quick and inexpensive fix.

Sensors Diminish ¶ 

Sensors that read where the window is could have become faulty, and this can be self corrected at times. Try to reset the sensors in the door by holding up on the window control for about 20 seconds.

Bad Software ¶ 

The software that assists with moving the windows is also another problem area at times. This can be potentially fixed by disconnecting the battery for around 5 minutes to see if the system can reset itself.
