Hello all.

I have an 06 cooper ,the time on the clock goes back to zero. It happens if the car does not fire up after I restart it .
I have checked around for loose wires , I have changed the spark plugs and leads to see if I will restart better .
Tho I feel it a wiring problem.
Anyone out come across this and is there a fix.

Thank you

Thanks , I was also thinking on those lines. Because last week working on my little beauty I had the radio on and the boot open.
Guess what , the battery was dead after less than 1 hour .It charges well and starts the car no problem but now up that said , it sounds like a bad cell
Thank You will update you when its been tested

Test your battery. The starter is a large drain and it may be just too much now.
Nigel thanks . I have been away and tried to start it after being stood for a couple weeks . guess what dead, I pulled out the spare battery ( that i had in my garage)and started it right up even without charging it.
Brilliant(y)so for so good

would if booking in to a garage ask them to read the pressures on the particulate filter in the exhaust DPF for short,,, it has two pressure sensors and when blocks up the back pressure will get pushed out of any weak point between it and the engine as such, the dpf filter on the psa diesels a service item 75000 miles is what volvo and ford do, nasty things
