Question about 2002 Mini Cooper
I just noticed that the brake light on my 2002 mini cooper is on. the symbol looks like an exclamation point and the color of it is yellow. i only have 35,500 miles on the car. could this be something serious and should i avoid driving it until i can get it checked out at a bmw dealership? and should all work on minis been done at the dealership? i have found that no other places can do oil changes right on minis besides the dealer- so am i to assume everything else? i do want the work done well and right even if it cost more (i'm just curious)
I would follow the instructions in the owner's manual for this warning light. Sounds like (but don't know) low brake fluid pressure -- which could lead to a brake failure. That's why there is an exclamation point, I guess.
Not a bad idea to stick with the dealer.

First of all warning lights like that mean ... you must take action ... With brakes I cannot stress how dangerous that may be ... It is something that should be checked immediatly ... I think that you should not drive it but to the repair shop you may be under warranty anyway so try the dealer. You should also read the owners manual ... Why doesn't anyone read these things? cars are likely the second largest purchase we will ever make, the most dangerous place we frequent, and we avoid the manuals ...
