Ok. Here is goes. I bought a 2003 Mini Cooper S on Tuesday. Wednesday morning, drive 40 miles to work, hit stop and go traffic and lost all power. The car did not die, just would not go. All of the lights flashed and the service engine light came on and stayed on. When the power was lost, I pulled over and turned the car off for a few minutes. This made the difference with the exception of the Service engine light. At lunch that day, someone suggested to take the gas cap off for a few minutes, put it back on and start the car. I did this and the light went away. Drove the car for the next two days with no problem. Friday, I got home from work and set out to start some errands, hit stop and go traffic again with the same results. Took it to the auto parts store this morning and the digital outcome was a 1105 code. Got the oil and coolant changed. Has this happened to anyone else. Any ideas?
