Won't start and rear brake lights stay on
I have a 2005 cooper convertible that is driving me nuts with two problems, that i dont know if they're relates or not. Since my closest mini dealer is a 3hr drive, i need a bit of help hčre.
1. Car won't start. Turn key, everything turns on normally (lights and all) but the motor doesn't turn over. The mechanic said the wire going to the starter was oxidated and broke off so i had it rebuilt at a local shop. Put in back in the car and it still won't start.
Looking at the WDS diagram, we have power from the battery to the starter, and power from the ignition switch to electronic control unit, but none from the ECU to the starter.
I also did the ECU software reset procedure, which worked well but still cant start.
2. Ever since the car went to the mechanic the rear brake lights stay on.
