The method is straightforward for adjusting the settings on your 2009 Mini Cooper Hardtop without the optional navigation system. Some of the procedures will transfer to other models and model years, particularly 2006 to 2010 model-year cars without the optional navigation package. The procedure will allow you to change the basic settings on your Mini Cooper, including time, date, unlocking, pathway lighting, daytime running lights and turn signal activation.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Close the doors and turn the ignition on without starting the car.

  2. 2

    Press the end of the turn signal indicator until "SET/INFO" is displayed in the centre of the tachometer.

  3. 3

    Press and hold the end of the turn signal until the display changes.

  4. 4

    Press the end of the turn signal again and cycle through the options until SET is displayed in the tachometer.

  5. 5

    Press and hold the button again until the display changes. You are now in the menu with the options you need to change.

  6. 6

    Scroll through the menu until you find the option you want. Once you find it, hold the end of the turn signal to select it; then use short clicks to scroll through the options and long clicks to select and store the values.

Tips and warnings

  • The engine must be off and the doors must be closed. Otherwise you won't have access to all the options.
