My new Mini

Post by andy757 » 24 Oct 2016, 11:50

Just thought I'd share this. I sold my BMW 320i and have moved to a Mini. I only do about 2400 miles a year so it made sense to buy a car that I don't have to buy tax for :))

The mini is displaying a yellow triangle with exclamation mark, next to the mileage display. It also displays a car on a ramp when I switch on the ignition. This is also yellow, not red. This goes out after a few seconds but the yellow triangle does not and remains on whilst driving. I've scrolled through the various "reset" options but cannot see what this triangle is warning me about. Any ideas from anyone ?

Sounds like a traction control problem
Could be ABS related

Probably best I take it for a diagnostic check I guess.
