Just talked to a mate of mine who said its the ASC that has been turned off. I flicked the ASC switch and problem solved.

I have a audi a4 2.4 2000 avant. a orange light came on . triangle with circle around it and this ! in the middle of it. please help


Yellow circle, with triangle and exclamation mark – The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) dashboard light flashes if the ESP or traction control is activated whilst driving. If ESP or traction control has been switched off, it will light up continuously. If ESP or traction control is not turned off and the warning light illuminates continuously, it indicates a problem and malfunction with either ESP or traction control.

2003 mini cooper s has yellow triangle light on


On a Cooper S the Yellow Triangle is the slip control. If this light flashes it is letting you know that it is working by cutting horse power or by using the brakes to gain traction. If this symbol is illuminated you may have just hit the switch that says ASC or DSC. If the light does not turn off after hitting the switch or by turning the car off and starting the car again, you have a problem with the ASC/DSC control module or the wheel speed sensors. You will have to take your car in to have it checked out.

My check engine light is on for my 2005 mini cooper s...what could b the problem? oil change 3400km just the other day the yellow light with the triangle that has an exclamation mark in the middle and a...


The "Check Engine Light" could be something major, or something as minor as a loose
gasoline filler cap. The only way to know is to find someone who can attach an OBD-II code reader
to your car's ODB-II computer port and talk to your car's on-board computer,and ask it what it thinks
is wrong.
Also, the "Yellow light with the triangle that has an exclamation mark in the middle and a circle going around" could be the SES light (Service Engine Soon), which could mean that everything is fine with the car, except the SES light needed to be reset at the 3400Km oil change, but it wasn't.
In the U.S., Pep Boys and Advance Auto Parts are national parts store chains that will read the ODB-II codes setting your "Check Engine" light free - don't know who will do this free in Canada/U.K., though.

I have a mini cooper & cannot find the book - round dashboard control has 7 circular lights above speed controls - the 2nd one in from the right just turned orange and fashing when I was on my way home...


Check your tire pressure. One of your tires has lost enough tire pressure to trigger this alarm. It could also be a puncture by nail or something. Once you've checked your tire pressures and set them all to desired pressure (30psi - depending on tire model and passenger occupancy) you can reset this alarm by pressing and holding down the button (apprx. 10 sec) located on the front of base of the emergency brake (same symbol on button as alarm). Blinking yellow light will stop blinking and stay on (this is when you can stop pressing the button), but eventually, shortly dissappear. I think the alarm is triggered by a difference of 4-6 psi which can aso be affected by climate change (warmer to colder season or visa versa).

A yellow circular arrow warning light has come on. What is it?


A yellow light containing an exclamation mark surrounded by a triangle, all surrounded by a curved arrow is the Automatic Stability Control warning light (ASC + Traction Control). If the light just flashes momentarily whilst driving it means that you have driven in a way that has triggered the ASC system to activate and protect you. If the light is on all the time it can mean that you have switched the system off. The switch for the ASC is one of the row of chrome switches just under the airconditioning controls. If you operate the switch and the light stays on, you have a faulty ASC system. OK to drive the car but be aware that the stability control will not save you from a skid. Have it looked at if you can't get the light to stay off.

Normal operation: Light on when you turn on the ignition, should go out after engine starts. Light flashes if you are driving hard on a slippery surface and the system is acting to stabilise the car.

Faulty: Light on all the time measn either you have turned the system off or there is a fault.

A red light appeared on my dash board which has an exclamation mark (!) somthing like that... Can you advise what this means? My car is a 2004 mini cooper.


Red circle with an exclamation mark in it - usually it is a braking system warning.

Possible causes:

1. low brake fluid level in master cylinder
2. pads at wear limit
3. handbrake still thinks its on - there's a switch under the cover that gets operated when the handbrake is pulled up, could be sticking.
