That just means you're due for service. There's a counter in your on board computer that times out on things like brake fluid, coolant, inspection, air filter, spark plugs etc.. when one of those reaches zero, the car gives that signal to tell you to go in for service. Those must be reset with an external scanner. they can't be done by the driver.

Sounds to me like the brake light switch is shorted and needs to be replaced. The brake light switch should be under the knee bolster above the brake pedal. Go to your nearest dealer and get a brake light switch and swap it out.

Brake pad light still on after pads were replaced.


if you didn't replace the brake pad wear sensor, you wont be able to reset the light. if you did and it still doesn't reset, you need to get into the maintenance system with a scanner, (your local garage should be able to do it) and reset the brake pad wear counter

Hi, i have a warning light on my mini cooper, its yellow with a exclamation mark inside two brackets, what does this mean.


either low tire pressure or brake warning. See pics below. If it's the brake warning, check your fluid level. If level is low, check for leaks at brakes, master cylinder, also clutch slave if you have manual trans. Let me know if you have questions.

Mini cooper Warning lights for abs, low tire,traction comes on


Ok, check the brake fluid level for a start. This could mean a few things. Your brake pads might be worn down, which would bring a yellow warning light on(triangle), at the same time with the pads being low it will have displaced the fluid, making the level low, this would be a red light on. Now because of this the body control module has detected these faults, will have turned the abs off, hence the abs light.
If brake fluid is low, this could confirm my theory.
If its low, top up with dot 5 brake fluid and take to garage to have new pads fitted.

What does the second from right warning light on a Mini Cooper dashboard - (!) - mean?


That appears to be a low tire warning light. If all your tires are correctly inflated it can be canceled by depressing, and holding for about 5 sec., the button by the parking brake lever. It should clear next time you start your car.
