Customer Question
Actually 2012 Mini Cooper ...

Actually 2012 Mini Cooper

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your MINI yourself? What have you tried so far?

No way to fix that little monster by myself

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

All of the warning lights lit up, the RPM indicator stayed at 0, every single warning indicator displayed in the indicator window and the gas guage went from full to empty several times. I shut it down then restarted the mini, after about five minutes of running on more warning symbols flashed and the Mini drove fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have the trouble code? Do you have a code reader or scan tool?

Unfortunately I do not
