Where is the 2011 Mini Cooper’s OBD port location?
The check engine light is on in my friend’s 2011 Mini Cooper, so I figured I’d help her by using my OBD scanner to try and find the problem. Where is the OBD port located on a 2011 Mini Cooper?

How nice of you! To find the OBD port on a 2011 Mini Cooper the first thing you should do is locate the hood release to the left of your steering wheel. Then, look behind the hood release to find the OBD port. Because the OBD port is set back under the dashboard, you may need to duck down or squat outside the driver’s side door to reach it comfortably.
Here are some of the common trouble codes associated with the 2011 Mini Cooper:
- P0011: Engine is not timed correctly or the timing chain is worn out
- P0014: Engine oil is dirty or too low
- P0113: The air filter is dirty or defective
- P0128: Engine thermostat is defective or the coolant is low
- P0200: Defective fuel injector or faulty wiring
- P0300: Worn out spark plugs
- P0420: Worn out or defective catalytic converter
- P0602: Powertrain control module is failing
- P0845: Low transmission fluid
- U0107: Dead battery
Of course, there are many more possible trouble codes than the ones listed above, so it’s a good idea to double-check your codes with reliable online sources or a code book. The vehicle’s owner’s manual may also include a selection of common OBD scanner codes.
