Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Justanswer. Thank you for your question and I will assist you with your concern.

The warning lights you have mentioned come on when the system sees a fault and when this happens the computer will set and store a fault code and or codes. In order to determine what has failed you are going to need to start first with having the system scanned and the fault code and or codes retrieved. If you can get this done and post back with them I will advise on the needed repair.

I knew that already. Just wanted to see if there was a similar issue with another mini owner and that your mechanics had an answer.
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Its a typical answer I would get if i called a shop or brought it in. This didn't really help me. Thanks

Unfortunately There is no way to know what has failed with knowing the fault code and or codes. There are many things that can cause this type of problem and with out know the fault codes it would only be a guess. If you can get me the codes I can then provide you with a proper answer.

Okay, I'll try to find out the codes and get back to you. Thanks again.
