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 "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.

A yellow circular arrow warning light has come on. What is it?


A yellow light containing an exclamation mark surrounded by a triangle, all surrounded by a curved arrow is the Automatic Stability Control warning light (ASC + Traction Control). If the light just flashes momentarily whilst driving it means that you have driven in a way that has triggered the ASC system to activate and protect you. If the light is on all the time it can mean that you have switched the system off. The switch for the ASC is one of the row of chrome switches just under the airconditioning controls. If you operate the switch and the light stays on, you have a faulty ASC system. OK to drive the car but be aware that the stability control will not save you from a skid. Have it looked at if you can't get the light to stay off.

Normal operation: Light on when you turn on the ignition, should go out after engine starts. Light flashes if you are driving hard on a slippery surface and the system is acting to stabilise the car.

Faulty: Light on all the time measn either you have turned the system off or there is a fault.

Dashboard light


if that "Circle" is a sort of round-bent arrow shape around "!" mark, you either have ASC or DSC disabled manually (by pressing the "DSC" button on your console", or there is a problem with the system.
Take your to the dealer. Specialized MINI/BMW computer should be able to diagnose it right away. Can be a costly repair

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.
