Question about 2004 Mini Cooper

1 Answer

I have a 2003 Mini Cooper. The Service Engine Soon light will not stay off. My mechanic can't figure it out. After an oil change it's off for a few hrs, then back on. I had a new gas cap and fuel tank valve replaced...the light was off for day, now back on again. It's not only misleading but annoying and if I want to sell my car, no one will buy it with that light on all the time. Please help! thanks!

    What was the code in the computer? To retrieve that code you must use an OBD 2 Scanner if you don't have one available to you Autozone will retrieve the code for you for free. Find out what diagnostic trouble code is in the computer and send me a message and I should be able to assist further. Good luck.

I do not like suggesting a dealer ever,
but in your case, I wouldn't continue
to use it. Have a dealer check it out

Drive it real easy until you get the computer scanned for trouble codes.
The check engine light is telling you the computer has a problem with something that will affect performance and emissions, when it flashes the problem is serious and can damage the engine or engine parts.
The trouble codes will tell a mechanic what to look for and test.

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.

2003 Buick Regal Service Engine Soon light.


The error that I'm showing for error code P1133 is 
P1133 Heated Oxygen Sensor (HO2S) insufficient switching bank 1 sensor 1(Rear Bank).  I would suggest having both of your Oxygen Sensors replaced if you haven't already had that done.  Hope this helps.  Thanks for an honest rating and for using FixYa.

2003 Buick Century Custom and the Service Engine Soon Light


You will need to have a reputable mechanic do a diagnostic check on the car to determine the problem. This should pull up a code number in your car's computer and help point the mechanic and you in the direction of the malfunctioning part/s.

Just today, I had a diagnostic check done on mine for nearly $45.00. The mechanic was able to figure out the reason why my service engine light was staying on. I knew my car's radiator fans failed to run when car's engine was hot except when the A/C was running. I had changed out the sensors and was never able to get the light to go out or get the fans working. They were able to determine that the 25 amp fuse for the fans located under the hood was blown. After replacing it, the fans worked as they should, my car runs cooler and the engine service engine light is now out. Of course there are many possible reasons why the service engine light may come on including problems with the car's emissions. A reputable mechanic can solve your problem.
