2006 Mini S- Heater blows cold and full speed- cannot get heat or slow blower

I have a very nice low mileage 2006 Mini S Convertable. Drove it today and the heater controls do not respond to anything. It is stuck on full blast cold air. The heater know, nor any of the buttons do anything. I disconnected the battery to see if that would help. Does not help.

It is NOT summer here ,and is quite uncomfortable.

PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!

Do you have auto climate digital control panel or the manual heater/ac panel with 3 large rotary knobs?

It has a big knob in the middle to adjust the temperature to whatever temperature desired.. It has push buttons for the heater speed, defrost etc.

Sounds like you have Auto Climate Control with the switches and dial in shape of a Mini winged badge, but there are several different part numbers:
RealOEM.com * BMW R53 Cooper S Automatic air conditioning control

It could be the actual control panel at fault or a sensor, the heater flaps are controlled by 3 small servo motors/actuators as shown here:
RealOEM.com * BMW R53 Cooper S Actuator, heater and air condit.

Yes, I have the automatic climate control in you first link. Thanks for the info. Now, what I think is the problem is that some coffee from the cup holder splashed into the heater controls as they are "sticky". How is this panel removed? Looks like 4 screws hold it in? Any idea, if it is not repairable, who might have one to sell ( the mini cooper junk yard?).

Thanks in advance for the help.

Oh, and by the way, do NOT take your mini to Ralph Schomp Mini for service. I cannot begin to tell you how dishonest they are.

In USA try here for parts:
Mini Cooper Parts and Mini Cooper Accessories! Cooper S and Clubman

If you search on NAM Mini forum in USA there should be a guide for heater panel removal and repair:
