Mini Cooper not starting caused by engine ECU problem

Mini Cooper no start ECU

Common Mini Cooper engine ECU problems will result in the vehicle not being able to start.

 

Running symptoms may begin with engine misfire and the vehicle being forced into limp mode. Internal failure of the ECU will cause the engine management light to become illuminated and will store a multitude of fault codes for monitoring power supplies, sensor faults and even one for ‘internal failure’.

 

Ultimately this engine ECU will end up preventing the vehicle from starting and at this point of malfunction direct communications to the engine management system will not be possible. This engine ECU has a design flaw that causes these symptoms, normally you would need to replace the ECU with an expensive new unit from the main dealers and then pay for coding of the ECU to the vehicle.

 

Rather than getting an expensive replacement new unit from main dealer or the manufacturer, we offer a Mini Cooper ECU repair which will take 2-3 working days. By choosing this method you will not have to program the ECU either and we will provide an unlimited mile lifetime warranty.
