Is This a Fuse Problem or Something Else?

Asked by Sep 25, 2014 at 01:24 AM about the 2010 MINI Cooper Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My battery went dead unexpectedly.  I got one from O'Reilly's and changed it.  Now my
interiior lights are not working along with the turn signals.  The windows won't go up and
down and my doors won't lock.  Is this a fuse a problem?  I have also read that I need to
get the battery registered.  Would that cause these issues?

Battery registered unlikely and never heard of that. Sounds like someone is pulling your chain.. Sounds like a fuse problem. Find the accessory fuses in the owners manual and check the ones in question hope u know what a blown fuse looks like. Could be a main under the hood.
