Customer Question

My wife has left her 2012 Mini S at airport for over a week. She just called and said the alarm went off when she unlocked it and now it will not start and the brake lights are flashing. I don't have any more details than that at this time.

Hi there,I hope I am not too late to help you.Sounds like your wifes car has a half flat battery.Does she have access to a Roadside assistance technician who could jumpstart the car for her?The trip home should charge the battery back up, although the battery could be marginal and may need replacing soon.Hope this helps.Gary
