I’m sorry, the only thing I understood is your brake light is on. I’m assuming it’s the red light on the dash. Have you checked the fluid? On most cars the light will come on when the level in the master cylinder is low.

You can use the Mechanic Files feature on this site to check for a local mechanic. Also ask friends or neighbor for a recommendation. The mechanic I’ve been using for the last 16-17 years was recommended by my neighbor.

If you could repost your questions with punctuation and complete words, you will have a much better chance of getting help. I honestly don’t know what any of the abbreviations in your post mean.

I hope this helps a little,

I just noticed my original post had no line breaks after it was posted. I had to go back and add another line between the paragraphs. Breaking up the reply makes it a lot easier to understand.

I wonder if she texted this while driving?

I’ve noticed that the original post will lose any extra line breaks after it is posted. Rather than submitting a new post, just post a reply here and we will take it from there. Use as much space as you need to ask your questions.

Yes, your Mini Cooper is really a BMW, and those cars need special oil!!!

Read the ower’s manual and it will be right there. Wherever you take it, be sure that have the EXACT oil specified for your car! It will also be expensive, but you have no choice.
