Electrical Noise prior to Starting, 2006 R50 Cooper
Hi folks, I am new to this site, so please be gentle.
I recently purchased a 2006 R50 facelift Cooper Auto and have noticed a very unusual noise prior to starting. It sounds electrical as if something is setting itself under the bonnet and lasts about 5 seconds after you turn the key, but prior to turning the engine on. It also makes the noise when you turn the lights on (again without starting the engine). if the car is warm and you turn it off and then back on again it doesn't do it.
Any suggestions would be gratefully received
