Yellow brake light on mini cooper is on

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 ...

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.

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.

Exclamation point warning light came on...what


A yellow explanation point symbol on the dashboard typically applies to the Tire Pressure Monitoring system. A thick ! inside a half drawn flat tire symbol to be complete and comes in yellow color when lit. Under normal vehicle set-up, if this indicator stays lit after the power-on selftest, you need to check your tires for any uneven pressures and adjust their pressures to correct specifications. Okay? : )

A red exclamation point inside a circle when lit indicates your parking brake is on, or your brake fluid level is low.

Warning symbol on mini cooper


If it is yellow and looks like a tire it is the flat tire light, and you should check his tire pressure. if it is a yellow triangle with an arrow going around the triangle with a exclamation point in the middle this is your DSC or ASC and if it is on all the time these features are inactive and you should hit the DSC/ASC toggle switch to the right of the drivers window switch. If this symbol just flashes briefly this means the DSC/ASC is presently activating. thest are the tow that I can think of, I hope this helps.
