Good evening to all,
I am writing to ask you a question on my mini (mini one 1.4 petrol, 2007 R56)
The other day I ran into a pole and I broke out the passenger airbag and the airbag guide.
now the car does not want to turn on, remains stationary, but the engine has not been touched, so that the bonnet and bumper are no scratches, just the right fender.
I have to reset the airbag? or is there something to be restarted in order to start the car? it is not the battery because the dashboard lights and i've cheched it.
thanks for support Macguyvic , but i've already read that post but it talk about mini first generation, i've a second generation mini one
i've search on the forum about my problem but only first generetaion have a botton under the bonnet...
It must have been a heck of a thump to deploy the airbag and for the vehicle to become immobilised. Just because there is little apparent visible damage, it doesn't mean there isn't any. Modern bumpers can compress and spring back out again, concealing structural damage behind. If I were you, I would get the vehicle checked over at your MINI dealer or competent independent garage.
