Help! It is 4:30AM here and I woke to a noise I thought was my smoke detector signalling a fire in my house. Fortunately, it wasn't that, but once I located the source of the noise in my garage, I was stumped.
My MINI is sitting in the garage turning its interior lights on and off, periodically locking and unlocking the doors and having the alarm piezo chirp randomly. Obviously this needs to go to the dealer for service, but can anyone offer some IMMEDIATE suggestions to make it stop the chirping noises? I tried using my key to lock and unlock the doors, but the poltergeist just continued away. I also put the key in the ignition and turned it through several of the settings, but to no avail.
I am afraid to actually start the car and "give it life"...
I saw the movie "Christine" and we're just not headed down that road.
Unfortunately, it is several hours until my dealer opens and I don't know what to do. Anyone in timezones that are actually awake now have any advice?
