Mini Hatch R50 R52 R53 Dashboard Light Symbols

Dashboard warnings lights symbols on your Mini R50 R52 R53 (One, Cooper, Cooper S, Convertible & JCW) depend on the Mini Problem. It could be an indicator light for ABS, airbag, engine light or something else. There are many reasons why the dashboard shows warning lights and below is a list of the lights on the dashboard. You might need to buy a scanner online which will show Mini trouble codes & reset the warning light for good!
If you need to reset a dashboard light or diagnose a fault on your Mini Cooper we recommend the Mini iCarsoft i910 kit from.

If you need a new sensors to fix your Mini Cooper such as ABS sensor, MAF, camshaft & crankshaft, visit www.bavariandominator.co.uk.

The following symbols are all taken from the Mini models (some symbols will vary slightly, but in general they should all look quite similar)

Mini Hatch & Convertible R50 R52 R53 check engine light (also known as the Service Engine Soon' warning lamp). This symbol indicates a malfunction within the engine system, and needs to be diagnosed and fixed quickly to prevent any damage to your engine. Diagnostic World recommends using the Mini iCarsoft i910 to read fault codes in this system. The kit will give you trouble codes, and tell you where the problem is, once the problem is fixed the engine light can be turned off. In most cases this will be because of a fault sensor such as camshaft sensor, map sensor or ignition coil. Watch us diagnose & reset the check engine light in a Mini Cooper.

Mini Hatch & Convertible R50 R52 R53 airbag warning light. If this airbag light is illuminated during normal operating conditions it means there is a fault within the airbag system. It could be a loose connection, or it could be slightly more complicated. To locate the fault in the system you will need to use an airbag diagnostic tool. If your mini was made 2003 or before you can use the B200 airbag reset tool, and if your Mini was made after 2003 you will need the slightly more advanced multi system Mini iCarsoft i910 diagnostic kit. The airbag light reset tools will turn off the dash light, and give you a trouble codes. Watch us turn off the airbag light in a Mini Cooper with the i910 kit.
