Not starting?

Anyone have issues with their mini not starting?

I have a 2016 F56.
Last time this happened I got an over voltage fault stored. Took 5 times to start.

Havent had time to check faults today on the way to work. But took about 10 tries today. Very annoying that it’s happening now.

Had a dash cam and meth kit for the past 2 years. May try to disconnect but never had issues until now.

Thoughts?

Do you have any other mods at all?

Finally discovered that I had a wire that was stuck on the clutch spring behind the clutch pedal. The car wasn’t sensing that the clutch was depressed therefore refused to start.

What a scare.
