When I start the engine, a light illuminates on the dashboard with the symbol "engine" + the word "CHECK". The light stays on while I drive but I observe no problems for drive.


Have codes scanned and see what they show. May be a cat clogging up or chemically dead as well as an O2 sensor giving false readings.

What do the Dashboard Symbols Mean?


I have a mini cooper and every so often symbols come on when I first start up the car. Evidently this is the only time these symbols come on (versus staying on if there is a problem) which is a hassle, because its hard to remember what they are. But here is a list I found to help other Mini drivers like myself:

gbq2mr3zjq-1-0.jpg" alt="write_tip-xzo4jfw5th4gnzgbq2mr3zjq-1-0.jpg">
  1. Oil Pressure Warning Light. This symbol light usually is turned on when the ECU of the car detects any problem with the oil pressure. It usually indicates that the engine oil level is too low. Solution: Stop the car immediately, switch off the engine, and wait until the engine is cool down, top up the engine oil if the level is low. If the light is still on, consult any mechanic. P/S: This light is usually on when you switch on the ignition and it should be gone as soon as the engine starts.
  2. Battery Charge Warning Light. If the light is on during the car is running, it indicates that the car batteryis not charge. It could be some faulty of the charging system. Solution: Consult any mechanic.
  3. Brake System Warning Light. If the e-brake or handbrake is engaged, the light will on. If the light remains illuminated after the handbrake is released, it may indicate brake fluid level is low. If the fluid level is correct, it may be the sensor fault.
  4. ABS Warning Light. If the light is on while driving, it indicates a malfunction of the ABS system.Solution: Consult a mechanic as soon as possible.
  5. Warning light - Unidentified problem. Computer or ECU in the car sometimes hardly knows what the problem is. It usually indicates the car needs to be serviced.
  6. Engine Warning Light/OBD Indicator. You can always see this symbol in mostthe cars. If the light is on, it indicates that the car should be serviced. It could probably the engine malfunction or some other problems related to the car engine.
  7. Low Fuel. It's LOWWWWWWWWW FUEL, Please refill!
  8. High Beam Light. This symbol light is on when the driver turn on the high beam mode of the headlights. If the light is on when high beam is off, it could be the sensor's fault.
  9. Windshield Wash Symbols. Most of the new car has windshield wash, therefore this icon is common for most of the cars. The symbol notifies the driver when the windshield wipers are activated.
  10. Windshield Defrost. It is turned on once the driver presses the windshield defrost button.

  1. Fuel Filter Water Trap. This symbol is normal but ONLY for diesel engines car. If the light is on while driving the car, it indicates water is detected in the fuel filter. Solution: It is usually safe to drive the car but have to get the water in the fuel filter drained off as soon as possible.
  2. Temperature Warning Light. The symbol looks like a thermometer. It warns the driver that the engine is overheating. Solution: Find a safe place and stop the car immediately.
  3. Fog Beam Indicator. This is pretty basic and pretty simple. If the fog beam is on, the symbol illuminates.
