Customer Question

Have an 06 mini and haven't driven it couple weeks. First it turned on. Then the next time, when I turn the key, everything comes on but won't turn over. Any suggestions?

After many tries, the engine turns over. Runs and drives fines. When stop and turn off engines and restart it, it will start. When I don't use if for an hour or so, the problem comes back. Been reading online and people are pointing out to selonoid or battery ground contact.
