check the blogs out on the net. apperentely the mini coopers have transmission problems. My 2004 with less the 49,000 miles just went out. I thought it was a theow out bearing also. But I was wrong.

Could be the steering column. I had mine replaced under warranty for the same issue. This is a known problem for first generation MINI's. Talk to your dealer for a replacement.

Go to a Mini main dealership with proof that you own the vehicle. Also take along the servicing record. Using the VIN chassis number on the vehicle (and also in the service book) the dealer can look up the radio code for you but they may charge a fee. Most main dealers will give it to you for free if you ask nicely or are having any other work done on the car by them.
I'm puzzled by one thing though: a 2007 Cooper should still have been under the manufacturer's warranty, so a duff gearbox would be replaced by a Mini dealer. Part of the job would be to re-input the radio code. If this is what's happened and they couldn't provide you with the code I'd complain vociferously and get it fixed elsewhere in future.

If the light was flashing when it came on, then it means your engine is misfiring.
A solid light can mean anything from a loose/faulty gas cap to a transmission issue.
This light comes on when the computer detects a fault of some sort in its diagnostic tests. If it keeps detecting this issue, the light will remain on. If the light turns off, then it has detected that the issue may no longer be present.
In order to find out what the exact reason was for your light, You need to have your car computer scanned to retrieve the code that the computer would have stored when the light triggered. Most garages will do this free of charge. The code will tell you what may have caused the light to initially turn on.

If it's oem xenon than it should be 2 lamps. Because they had only xenon on the low beam (d2r type), however begin with changing the high beam. That one is inexpensive, so you could check if there are no other problems (like wiring).
Just open your hood and it should be clear how to open the cover for your high beam.
