My 2012 mini convertible...

My 2012 mini convertible came up with code P0599. I know I need to get it fixed, but can I drive it until I can get an appointment in 4 days?

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact code? And have you tried to reset it?

Its code P0599 Thermostat heater control How do I reset it?

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

I was not planning on fixing myself unless it is easy to do

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

I just brought the car in yesterday for service and the light came on on my way home.
