I've got a 2008 Mini Cooper, which usually runs fine. Today a red warning light appeared while I was driving - a car on a jack. It disappeared again, but did come on when I restarted the engine to come home.
I'm about 250 miles from my usual garage at the moment, and I'm due out in two hours (not far - 40 minute drive each way?) But I can't find this light in my Mini handbook so I'm stressing a bit.
Can anyone advise? The car was serviced in October.
Edit - I've just found that it's a vehicle check light. My usual Mini garage have emailed stating not to touch it until Monday, when they'll check it over. They have quoted £400 for the brake pads to be changed.
Is that about right? Can I really not drive it?
(It's my first car, and maintenance isn't my strong point! It is regularly serviced, always passes it's MOT and has new tyres, it's in v.good condition generally. So I'm very concerned!)
