Exclamation EML light

Hey,
I have an 02 mini cooper s and when I am driving it the EML light always come on. I took it in to the dealer and they said it was a short wire and said they fixed it. But when diving it home the light came on again! So its going back to the dealer.

I was just wandering if anyone else has had a similiar problem and what they did to fix it!

Also, the light has only been coming on in the cold below -10 celsius. I was thinking it could be the cold but I always see other minis driving around.

Help is appreciated and Thanks!
Kyle

This often indicates a lambda/oxygen sensor is faulty.

my son's girlfriend has a Cooper 2006 and emissions and engine light came on.

Plugged in my Maxscan OBDII and got P1776 as stored code - anyone know what this is on Mini - on AAudi it is something to do with hydraulic pressure.

All lights now off

If you mean the yellow light that looks like a picture of an engine, then that's an indication that the engine control computer has detected an error. You need to have the code read to determine what the fault is, there's a sticky in this forum that lists all the potential codes.
As MAB01UK said, one of the most common faults is the oxygen sensor. The sensor needs to be hot to work correctly and, if marginal, could be affected by the cold weather. There are two sensors, one upstream of the catalytic converter, used for engine control, and one downstream that is used for monitoring the performance of the catalytic converter. The electrical connectors are under the car and problems can be caused by dirty contacts.
The first thing to do is to find someone with an OBD2 code reader that can determine what the error code is.

The Fault Codes thread is a Sticky in this forum but does not list P1776.

Maybe I will tell them about the oxygen sensor when it goes back in on monday. All I knew was the fault code revealed a short wire last time. Thanks for the help guys!
