Question about 2004 Mini Cooper

1 Answer

Yellow (circled arrow) around a yellow triangle

I just bought my 2004 Mini Coop today. While I've had a BLAST driving that sharp little car I noticed this evening that I had a light on on the center bottom of my speedometer. It's a yellow arrow that is circled around a yellow triangle. I have no manual book yet and I have no idea what TLC that my new/used mini needs. There are several things that I just don't know what they mean... any place I can download a manual?

Thanks in advance.
A new Mini LOVER!!

That light is the traction control device that's been turned "off". It also comes on if the traction control is engaged. On my it can be turned on and off by the switch next to the drivers window toggle. could it be you hit this switch? If it stays on in spite of the switch, could be a wheel sensor. Doesn't hurt performance (could say it helps performance if it's off) but tire life and driving in rain and snow make it useful to have it functioning.

A warning light on my mini one diesel 2011. a yellow circle with capital (A) in centre


I think you mean the yellow circle with the triangle and the exclaimstion point? ... That would be a service light. If it says ABS in the center (orange warning light ln the right, not left) then your brake system needs inspected or serviced.

The mechanic says it's about $800 to do the water pump in an 04 tiburon. is this a typical price to pay?


It's kind of an arbitrary question. It depends on what type of mechanic, what kind of shop he works for, and your geographic location. That being said, it's actually a fair price for a reputable mechanic. However, I'd be a little leery if it's a guy working out of an old chicken coop. (Anyone working out of an old chicken coop...please don't take that personally...I'm sure yours is a very nice chicken coop.) Thanks for using Fixya.

The "Check Engine Light" could be something major, or something as minor as a loose
gasoline filler cap. The only way to know is to find someone who can attach an OBD-II code reader
to your car's ODB-II computer port and talk to your car's on-board computer,and ask it what it thinks
is wrong.
Also, the "Yellow light with the triangle that has an exclamation mark in the middle and a circle going around" could be the SES light (Service Engine Soon), which could mean that everything is fine with the car, except the SES light needed to be reset at the 3400Km oil change, but it wasn't.
In the U.S., Pep Boys and Advance Auto Parts are national parts store chains that will read the ODB-II codes setting your "Check Engine" light free - don't know who will do this free in Canada/U.K., though.

It's probably OK to drive. I imagine they failed to get the oil filter properly seated and you're getting a little leak there. DO BE SURE to check the oil level before you drive it and add if necessary.
