MINI COOPER S BATTERY PROBLEM

2004 Mini Cooper S

Electrical problem
2004 Mini Cooper S 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 22000 miles

Hi,

After putting the key in the ignition, and hearing the normal chiming sound, the car went completely dead. No interior indicator lights, no power at all. . Tried to jump it with our truck. Instead of starting, headlights flash on and off and driver window rolls down. Multimeter is showing 12 V at the battery. Interior indicator lights stayed on after we disconnected from truck battery for a few minutes, then everything went dead again. Any ideas?
