Here are five possible reasons your MINI may be struggling to turn over.
The Battery is Dead
Your car battery is one of the most common causes for a low or no turn-over situation. If your battery is dead, your vehicle won’t be able to turn over to get started. Try jumping your battery before troubleshooting other possible causes.
The Starter Motor is Worn
Your battery feeds power to your starter, which helps your vehicle start. If your battery is working, but your vehicle still isn’t turning over, your starter may need attention.
The Ignition Coils are Worn
Internal combustion engines rely on a spark to work properly. If the ignition coil isn’t providing that spark, your vehicle won’t be able to start. Modern cars have more than one ignition coil, so several may go bad at once for this to be the cause.
You’re Out of Gas
If fuel isn’t getting to your engine due to a leak, low supply, or uneven parking position, your vehicle won’t be able to start. This is just one reason why you always want to make sure you fill up as needed.
Anti-Theft Devices are Engaged
Sometimes, anti-theft devices will engage, locking your steering wheel and preventing you from starting your car. Familiarize yourself with the anti-theft devices in your vehicle so you know how to disable them if needed.
