Evening all,

I'm having a problem with my R53. When I try to start with the key I just get a clicking and chirping.

Dash, clocks, sat nav screen all light up and I can hear fuel pump prime when key in.

Car bump starts quite easily.

I took it to a garage and they said starter motor, so had new one fitted.

Car started as normal for the rest of that day but back to the same problem the next morning ::frown::

Could have the battery failed? Or do you think it may be something else?

Update: Been out and bought a brand new battery. Now when I try to turn the key I just just the clicking noise, no chirping. Still won't start :(

I've managed to rectify the problem. There was a power drain on the system and the coil pack was on it's last legs, so been out shopping and replaced the coil with a MSD pack, also bought some performance leads and plugs (thought I'd may as well change them at the same time)

hi, I'm new to the site and new minis, my daughter has just bought an r53 MCS, I'm having the same problems, was it the coil pack causing the power drain?

Thanks in advance.
