Question about Cars & Trucks
Go to autozone or similar and have vehicle scanned for codes this will tell what is wrong with it

The yellow triangle with an exclamation mark will typically be accompanied by a message explaining what's gone wrong. Hopefully it will be self-explanatory - such as a low reservoir for the windscreen washer system.

SOURCE: SEAT TOLEDO WARNING LIGHTS
Could be the motor-management-warning light, but I guess it's the break-warning light. There might be too little breaking-fluid left in the lines ... A boardcomputer-readout should clarify this.
Otherwise, try parking on an ascending road with the nose pointing up, hit the hand-break and wait like 2 minutes; the light should come on. You might wanna retry it with the car's nose pointing downwards as well ... If so, definitely the breaking-fluid, otherwise probably not ;)
In any case - flashing warning light are never ok, so when you see it again and you're sure it's not just the ABS/ESP warning light, go and have your boardcomputer read-out, since it should contain useful errorcodes ..

Are refer to the Brake System; in RED and YELLOW condition, continue driving cautiously:
More details about this Warning Lights you can find in the 2003 Mini Cooper - Owners Manual (page 16 and next).
I really hope helps with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

Standard Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA ®) with Traction Control
and Brake Assist
Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) is an electronic stability control
system that works in conjunction with the Pilot's drive-by-wire throttle
and its 4-channel ABS systems to enhance controllability while the
vehicle is accelerating, braking, cornering or when the driver makes a
sudden maneuver. VSA functions by applying brake force to one or more
wheels independently while also managing the throttle, ignition and fuel
systems to help the vehicle maintain the driver's intended path of
The VSA system constantly analyzes data from seven sensors that monitor wheel and vehicle speed, steering input, lateral G forces and yaw rate. It compares the driver's control inputs with the vehicle's actual response. Whenever the actual response falls outside of a predetermined acceptable range, VSA intervenes with a corrective action.
For instance, if VSA detects an oversteer condition, the system may apply braking force to the outside front and rear wheels to counteract the unintended yawing effect. In the event of understeer, VSA may apply braking to the inside rear wheel while reducing engine power to help return the car to its intended course. VSA also provides a limited-slip differential effect for the front wheels by applying braking force to a slipping wheel, thereby redirecting driving force to the wheel with more traction.
There is a button on the lower left part of the dashboard that says "VSA". Push it and the triangle will dissappear (this should only be turned off if you are using a spare tire that is smaller than the rest of the tires).

The Vehicle Stability Assist system is turned off. Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) is an electronic stability control system that works in conjunction with the Pilot's drive-by-wire throttle and its 4-channel ABS systems to enhance controllability while the vehicle is accelerating, braking, cornering or when the driver makes a sudden maneuver. VSA functions by applying brake force to one or more wheels independently while also managing the throttle, ignition and fuel systems to help the vehicle maintain the driver's intended path of travel.
You need to find the VSA button on the dash and push it, this will activat the VSA and turn off the yellow light.
