Hello all from sunny Greece,
Mini is mpi of 19976.
I am facing a problem that looks like a short circuit .
Doing a long trip, after 50kms, the windshield wipers started working at their own will! It was doing 2-3 wipes at random and would stop.
Later, I noticed that the motor had weak power when pressing the accelerator pedal, between 2.000 - 3.5000 rpm. After 3.500rpm it would fire up as normal.
After a stop of 30 minutes, the car could not start. The petrol pump did not make the common sound when you turn on the keys (no sound at all to be exact). I noticed that the rocker button for the fog lights was flashing at random, no matter if it was pressed down or up.
After 30 minutes, the mini started, and running on idle (no speed) and it sounded normal. After 500-1000 metres it stopped completely..
And finally, the icing on the cake:
At one moment, (only when key was turned on) the windshield wipers started working and would not stop. I tried to pull out the earth plug from the wiper motor, the wiper was still working!
Seems like my mini is possesed!
Any clues as to where I can start?
