Mini Cooper Battery System
The Mini Cooper battery system controls every one of the electrical components in your car, from the headlights to the navigation system. Every time you drive your Mini, the battery charges itself. However, should the battery die, or lose power, there is also a Mini Battery Charging system that can revive the electrical system and increase the life of the battery.
The # 1 rule when changing the battery is to register the battery with the control units.
Symptoms of Battery Problems
How do you know if your Mini battery is charging? That’s simple: every electrical component of the car works. Does your radio cut out occasionally? Is your GPS system malfunctioning? Do the headlights seem overly dim, or do the internal lights not come on? If you experience any of these issues, you might be facing a problem with your battery. Because of the battery charging system, you shouldn’t ever find yourself in this situation.
What is the Battery Charging System?
In times past, a battery past its prime was only a few accelerations away from retirement. Now, with the Mini’s Battery Charging system, the genius engineers at the Mini Cooper company have likely saved you from this hassle. The system first examines your battery, configuring itself to fit the specific age and condition, and then adjusts it’s amperage to charge the battery the right amount. In essence, the charging system acts as a corpse reviver, injecting new, beautiful life into your battery by never trying to send more amperage than the battery can handle.
Solving Battery Problems
Any battery problems are best dealt with in two ways. The first is preventative. By following the recommended maintenance schedule, you can likely prevent a situation wherein your battery fails. Furthermore, you can save your battery by keeping your lights off when you don’t need them, and by not letting electronics (such as the radio) run when the car is turned off. If you’ve done all of this and are still encountering battery issues, then it’s very possible that the charging system itself is malfunctioning.
