The Mini Cooper is a compact three-door hatchback with British engineering. Over time, the check engine light, also known as the service warning light indicator, will light up when there is a problem with the Mini Cooper`s engine. The only way to get rid of this light is to reset it. This can be done without going to a Mini dealership by simply using a Service Light Plus airbag reset tool, which can be found at most auto parts shops.
