Will not crank but battery fully charged.

Asked by Mar 20, 2014 at 10:25 AM about the 2003 MINI Cooper Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

In shop twice, but same problem when I get home.  Hazard light comes on/off intermittently along with no flat tire light, which I do not have no flat tires.  Friend push me off and popped clutch to crank.  Hazard light went out, but 15 minutes later came on as I approached my destination.  Tried resetting lock system, works sometimes.  Any ideas before I return to the shop again.

If by Hazard light you mean the alarm system is activating, that would explain the no start condition. The tire indicator means you are low on pressure, not flat. Maybe you are a couple pounds low on pressure or one of the wheel sensors is faulty. I'd find another shop to look at the car, if I were you.
