Hello, I recently purchased a Mini Clubman 57 plate a few months ago and have only just started having problems since the weather has got colder. When I try and start the car with the push start button (clutch in) it starts up, but the engine quickly dies. So I give the engine a bit of rev and this seems to help a bit, but I have to press the start button about 6 or 7 times and wait for the car to warm up before I can pull away. Has anyone got any ideas, I don't want to drive back to the dealers unless I have to, as its a 2 hour round trip. Any suggestions would be most welcome.

If it's not under warranty, take it to a more local garage to you?


I would say starter motor or battery is on it's way out.
