What do all the Mini Cooper dash lights mean?

I’m borrowing my aunt’s Mini Cooper and I’m so overwhelmed by all the lights on the dash! I don’t think there are any problems but there’s one illuminated symbol that’s yellow and I don’t know if it’s an urgent problem or not. What do all the Mini Cooper dash lights mean?

The Mini Cooper dash lights alert you to the functional status of the vehicle’s systems, using color to indicate health.
In general:
  • Green lights indicate proper function
  • Yellow lights indicate that you should get something checked out soon
  • Red lights indicate a serious and immediate problem
Some Minis have a pulsing light called the heartbeat that serves no other purpose than to look cool. Don’t be alarmed!
One of the most serious lights is the brake system warning light, a red circle with an exclamation point in the middle with two curves on the outside of the circle. The other serious light is the check engine light, indicating a minor or major issue with your vehicle. You should pull over ASAP if one of these lights illuminates.
In addition to paying attention to warning signs, it’s important to have a great car insurance policy. You can be the safest driver on the road and still have an unexpected accident!
