Very annoying brake warning light issue!

Hi Guys,

Purchased my new Mini One 2002 and couldn't be happier with the car. After driving about 800 miles my brake attention light came on so I took it straight to kwik fit and got new pads and discs front and back. Hoping this would sort the problem as they were due to be changed.

After about 20 mins of leaving the kwik fit garage the light came back on and I was on my way to Dublin from Belfast for work so couldn't take it back. I called mini in Dublin and explained the problem so they said drop the car in for a diagnostic and we will go from there.

After about 3 hours of having the car there I got a call from the sevice guy saying this car was re called a few years ago due to and ABS problem and I was not charged and they are ordering a part from Germany. The light looks exact like this one (i) and wont turn off.

Is this light likely to come on for ABS? Ive been researching it for days now and the only way I can see that light showing is for brake pad sensors but my model doesn't have any sensors.

Can anyone shed any light on this please?

Thanks
Anthony
