I had same light staying on after brake pads/ dics were replaced. You need the brake sensor replacing. I think it cost me around £125 from a bmw/ mini garage!

Did they replace the brake pad wear sensor? If so, try leaving the key in the on postion for 30-45 seconds (dont start the car) This is how we reset the lights on BMW's and the Mini's use a similar system for service lights

A warning light in my 2004 mini - light on top next to seat belt light on left - looks like a steering wheel - what does that mean


That is the brake pad warning light. When is goes off the brakes, front or rear, need to be replaced. The brake pads and the sensor have to be replaced, as once the sensor is tripped, it can't be reset.

I replaced my brake rotors on a 2004 gmc canyon and installed new brakes. everything works great, however my abs light stays on now.


IF you installed the wrong brake rotors,without the ABS reluctor ring[if equipped],the light will come on.Second possibility is you damaged the ABS wiring to the wheel speed sensor.There is a harness to each wheel.

I have "Check your brake pads" light on. I've called the dealer a they said that a standard brake service includes replacing pads AND the rotors. Is this normal?I've never changed the rotors (disks)...


It always makes a better job to replace both, as you can imagine. Whether they stay or not is based on Minimum thickness, and is there enough material left to meet thickness spec, after truning.

Another thing that is different, from time to time is the disks can often be replaced with new, for less than / or close to the truning charge...in this case, no brainer, new disks...

2004 Mini Cooper Indicator light problem


BRAKES! Replace your brakes NOW. You have less than 2MM of pad lining on (most likely) your front brake pads. No brakes, no stop. No stop, no MINI.

What does this warning light mean?


you're do for brake service. either the front or rear brake pads have worn down to
minimum. if when you apply the brakes you don't feel pulsation, just replace the brake pads and sensors and that will take care of the light.
